1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Patchwork Skirt & Polka Dot Hat on: January 14, 2008 04:12:18 PM
I didn't really use a pattern.  I think I used Vegbee's peasant top tute & I sorta used her patchwork skirt tute, but since I used a pair of cut off pants for the top, I changed it up some. 
The hat was a baby pattern from Simplicity, but again I changed it all up as I went along.

Ooh I love it! Was it hard?

Thanks everyone.  Not really hard, just time consuming.  The bottom ruffle is about 33 ft long unruffled & I don't have a ruffler foot, so I have to do them the hard way.

This is dd4's Chrstmas dress.  After the past years' only worn once or twice dresses, I decided this year I was using a print that she could wear at least through January too.  The skirt is strip twirl skirt & the bodice is from a Simplicity pattern.  It was supposed to have a LONG-SLEEVED peasant top under it, but she was asleep when I made it & well, the only measurement I had for her arm was shoulder to elbow.  I like it, but I may end up making a long-sleeved top too.

When I started this it was a simple patchwork skirt for dd to wear with her cowgirl boots (she will correct you if you say cowboy).  Then it turned into a whole outfit. 

I took a pair of her old corduroy pants & cut them off short length & added the skirt to the now shorts.

Excuse her dorky face, she really just wanted to twirl.

And, oh yes, did I mention?  It twirls!

Last year dds were Winnie the Pooh & Piglet.  DH was Christopher Robin.  Given that the only female in WtP is Kanga & I REALLY didn't want to dress up as an animal much less a kangaroo, I was Tinkerbell.

This year dds are going to be Wicket & Ewok village Leia.  DH & I are going to be Han Solo & Death Star Leia.

She's just adorable & the dress came out really cute.  I really like the lace.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Cinderella at Her Ball on: September 03, 2007 01:43:41 PM
DD's birthday is Wednesday so Saturday we had her party.  She decided she wanted a Cinderella party so, of course, I had to make her a dress.  Then her royal highness was cranky at the beginning of the party & refused to let me put her hair up or wear the headband or necklace.  I was afraid she was going to refuse to wear the dress for a while. 

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  The petticoat never did poof quite as much as I wanted it to (& I think it's a little big in the waist - don't know how I missed that), but overall pretty good, especially since I pretty much made up the pattern as I went.

Last one I promise, I just have to show off the topsy-turvy doll I made her.
