1  EUROPE / FRANCE / Re: Let's introduce ourselves on: June 29, 2007 06:07:27 AM
I just noticed this and am so pleased to see that Crafting in France does not end with Marie Claire idées (with which I have a love hate relationship)
I am 36 with a toddler son and love to sew, knit and occasionally redo bits of furniture.  I live in Paris in the 20th!

This is probably too late but there are LOTS of yarn stores in Paris:

Have you tried Ottobre?


Take a look at Spring or Summer 2007 (I forget) there are some really cute things. 
I have a little boy too and it is hard.  Some nice things are simple tunics in unexpected fabrics like a very small floral / Liberty style(hush don't tell DH!) paired with really rugged pants, etc...  Or simple shapes but layering loud colour combination.

I just posted a link for another craftster looking for easy kid clothes.  Under the Hill is a grat blog and the mother posted a tutorial names, very aptly, Twirly Skirt.  There's a flickr set too if you want some inspiration


Have great fun twirling!

Along the same lines as Kellybean, use some muslin and make a mock up of the dress.  Once you have gone through the entire pattern once, you can try it of for fit, make any adjustments you need and use your perfectly fitted dress as your "new" permanent pattern to make the real dress.  It takes a bit more time but you get to practice first and you finish with a fabric pattern and not a paper pattern that will eventually disintegrate.

I'm new on board so I hope this works.  Seersucker is SO sweet for little children.  There is a great tutorial making the blogging rounds that could really work:
The Twirly skirt by House on the Hill (there's a Flickr group as well for ideas)


which is very easy and the instructions are detailed!  A piece of pretty contrasting fabric and you would be ready to go.
Show us a picture when you're done!
