2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Alice in Wonderland Costumes, ala Jacki.(crap-ton of pics) on: November 07, 2010 05:02:08 PM
I made these for my sons and my granddaughters, who are as follows:
Red Queen: Rosemary, 5wks
Alice: Audrey, 20 mths
The White Rabbit: Aldous, 25 mths
The Mad Hatter: William, 3 yrs

The Red Queen's dress is a Kwik Sew baby dress bodice with self-drafted sleeves, skirt and overskirt. It closes w/ one button on the back. The red is a crushed velvet panne, and the black is a satin-like fabric. Trim is vintage white and gold rick-rack. My daughter made her crown from poster board. The shoes are store-bought black shoes painted gold, store-bought tights.

Alice has a linen dress from a peasant dress pattern in Lalala3 with 3 rows of elastic shirring at the sleeves and the neckline. The hem is trimmed with white rick-rack. The apron is a self-drafted from white stretch cotton poplin. Store-bought headband, tights, and shoes.

The White Rabbit is a self-drafted zipfront jumpsuit out of fun-fur and felt and a satin-lined hood, with a self-drafted coat w/ split tails to accomodate the handmade pompon tail. Vintage buttons, trim, and home-decor lace ruffles add the details.

The Mad Hatter is wearing reconned thrift store jacket (women's size M to a size 4t!), with homemade uniform polo (white shirt), self-drafted vest w/ vintage button, handmade hat w/ hatband and pins, self-drafted short pants with spray painted gold stripes, spray painted boots. The jacket was painted, embellished with vintage trim and home decor lace and lace ruffles. The buttons were replaced with vintage buttons, and elastic added for a closer fit.
The bow tie has a pin fastener. Socks are store bought, wig is store bought, but painted orange. Thread bandolier is vintage trim with an elastic thread holder sewn on, spools from stash (most vintage)

I think that's it! I had SO much fun making these! Thanks for looking!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fitz patterns TONIA cape! on: January 08, 2009 05:49:05 PM
I made the Tonia cape from fitzpatterns today and it turned out great!
I used free vintage fabrics, including one groovy fabric for the lining! The button, vintage was also free, so this was a FREE cape! I can't wait to wear it! Thanks for looking!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / *BOY* Two recon hoodies and some tees on: December 26, 2007 06:09:49 PM
I made these to fill in some gaps in baby William's wardrobe. I made two hoodies from tops I found at Goodwill in the .25 bin...rock on! and the others are lap tees w/ coordinating binding (all cotton knit)
One pic of the model.

Thanks for looking!
Hoodies are Kwik Sew for Toddlers and the tees are McCall's 8574 (disregarding the instructions for finishing the neck and making it up instead....)
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Ride 'em, Cowboy*BOY OUTFIT* on: December 26, 2007 03:35:18 PM
Yet another chapter in my reverse appliqué madness...
This is an outfit with a RTW hoodies ($1 on clearance at OUAC) and pants made from some rocking JoAnn corduroy. They are a rich chocolate brown. William sports this ensemble with his classic black converse. As he does everything, when he's not wearing black/white airwalks! HA!
we need some brown shoes in this joint!
Pattern for pants is Kwik Sew's Sewing for Toddlers. Smiley

Notice the "brand" on the back: That was my husband's idea (he's creative, too) a "W" for William!

William modeling the outfit: he was sick and looked sort of pathetic Sad

Thanks for looking!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Christmas Reverse Applique*FOR A BOY* on: December 26, 2007 03:23:27 PM
I saw a tut for reverse applique on here and since then I haven't been able to stop myself..I've made so many cool things!
One of the latest is this awesome Christmas Tree outfit I made for Baby William....it's so cute, it makes me want to snuggle him up!! Ok, I ALWAYS want to snuggle him up, but it IS cute.
Cotton knit: rust color from goodwill $2 for 2 yds (used half yard), green from wal-mart remnant bin $1.
I'm very resourceful.
It looks dark around the tree b/c I had just washed it and was hang drying it. It includes a raglan sleeved hoodie, cuffed pants, and a hat with a bell.

Thanks for looking! Stay tuned for more reverse appliqué madness!
Oh yes!
Patterns used are Kwik Sew's Sewing for Toddlers for the outfit, and the hat is Simplicity 4153 (the knotted cap which I never knot)
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Kimonos and a hedgehog on: October 28, 2007 07:33:59 PM
Those go together, right???
I had two birthday babies, turning 1, in my life just recently so I put these together for them.

I liked how they turned out. The kimono was a trial, and after I tried it on my own baby and he ripped it off in two seconds, I realized I should add snaps inside! LOL

The t-shirt was easy to sew, but I hadn't done the reverse appliqué that I added to it and the pants before so that was a challenge, but fun and easier than I anticipated.

these are itty bitty, size 12 mths...they look tiny, even though that's the size my baby wears....LOL!
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Child Costume: Swiveling the Pelvis in the Name of Elvis on: October 19, 2007 08:57:45 AM

I have also posted the costume here

Let's Rock!!!
