1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Applique-ing onto knit and woven cotton--Help!!! (please :) ) on: September 04, 2007 07:49:54 AM
Did you use a ballpoint needle or a sharp? I haven't really done any appliqu to speak of so I'm not sure how big of a difference this makes but I have seen it suggested, with the note that it's to prevent holes in the fabric.

Cotton knit dress with an Asian vibe to it.  It has a crossover bodice and an attached circle skirt.  I made an obi style sash to go with it.

I'm not sure if you noticed this post or not(it appears to be an older post).  But I just wanted to reference it here.  Dresses 4 and 5 appear to be similar to the one you were trying to recreate.  The quote above are the original posters notes on the dress. 

Hope this helps!!!

Okay, so I am definitely no expert, but I did have a pretty succesful attempt at a skirt like this a few weeks ago, and I can tell you what I did.  F

Wow Paige what an awesome helpful post.  Your skirt is darling.  I've been obsessed with the layered look vertical strip skirts lately but haven't quite been able to figure out all the details.  I found this today http://goingsewcrazy.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/08/twirly-skirts-a.html which is very similar to what I had in mind, but with the vertical strips.  Thanks to your helpful post I think I should finally be able to get the skirt I have in mind made up. 

Thanks so much!!!

Sorry I can't help you justdreamin, I posted a simliar topic a while back and haven't gotten any response.  I know there is a tutorial on youcanmakethis.com for these skirts.  But, we just don't have the funds for that at this time.  I'm gonna watch this thread I hope you get some response. I would love to make one or ten of these as well.

Good Luck!!

Here are two posts here on craftster that are directions/tips for a similar style dress.  I think the dress in that post is more of a mock wrap than a total wrap(maybe I'm wrong). But these posts might be helpful. 


Also, here is a link with two wrap style garments (the yellow and green items in the 3-6 month row).  The green is a wrap dress, and the yellow is a mock wrap top.  I believe that the top of the dress you are wanting to make is most similar to the yellow shirt.  I think that it would need some modification.  The link below includes patterns but assumes that you are familiar with garment construction, there is a link to the general instructions page at the top. 


Hopefully the links help, and as always if you make one PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, post your results!!!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Orange overload!! Skirt to dress recon on: August 16, 2007 09:01:13 AM
So I finally got pictures taken of this recon..  It started life as a tiered skirt that I got at the local thrift store for $ 1.00.  I haven't finished it because I'm not happy with where the bodice meets the skirt of the dress, and because I attached the bodice inside out(it's fully lined so it looks okay, just not sure I want it that way).  And the girl isn't sure she likes the dress.



Front Detail:

Thanks for looking!!

I hope I'm not being too much of a pest, but do you by chance have any additional measurements from the pattern??

I think that I will need to make it a bit bigger once I get it drawn to fit my dd, but I just can't get it drawn  Cheesy.  Of course this is my first attempt at drawing a pattern in this way. 

Thank you so much, I love the look of this and SO want to make several for my little one.

Thanks again
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: It's finally here!!! Pillowcase romper/short set - with Pattern and Tutorial on: August 08, 2007 06:59:36 PM
Would the straps on this top tie like on a pillowcase dress or are they permanent??

Do you have any idea on the measurements??

Thank you so much for posting this it sounds like a really cute idea, and I would love to try it.

Too cute!!! This is such a cute pattern, I can't wait to try it out. 

BTW, I'm in love with your hippo fabric. 

Nice job

I'm just not sure what I need to do to make it look like a petty coat  Cheesy.  Right now it just looks like the lining hanging out.

I'm not sure if I need to cut it off gather and reattach(it's a little long right now).  Or if I could gather at a certain point fold and sew Huh  Those are the two ideas I have.  Not sure either of them is a winner Undecided.

Thanks for your help!!
