This is my first post though, I have lurked for a while now. All of the photos are sideways....sorry I can't figure out how to turn them on here. I have been sewing for about 2 weeks now. I think I have taken to it pretty quickly thought nothing I have made so far is perfect, it is getting better. This is about half of what I have made so far, and I pretty much never use patterns, I know the shock and horror.

Sorry about the horrid quality of the photos, my camera is being sent to the shop so these were all taken on the blackberry. I hope nobody gets a kink in the neck trying to view them sideways and all.  Tongue

The red stripey guy with the arm covers is actually a shirt though she was trying to pull it off as a dress.

The too small kitty hat was the first thing I have ever sewed on a machine.

The light pink dress has since had the neckline changed a bit.

The Beatles dress is a combo of Vegbees peasant dress, and kitchykoo's double elastic neck dress... with some alterations. Same goes for the brown dress with the gold silk neck. The Beatles dress is a big hit the couple of times she has worn it we have gotten a lot of nice comments and people asking if I could sell them one. They should see the strings on the inside though, ha!

The little jacket now has buttons.

Comments and suggestions are of course very welcome!

there is soo much cuteness here!! I love most the armlets and the fabric on the last one is to die for.

I love it all, and by the looks so does she!

Thanks, she was asleep when I made the arm warmer guys and I just guessed at the size of her little arms and they fit perfectly and they stay in place without being tight.

You have a great eye for fabrics!

What a good job you've done with all of your creations... I can't believe you've only been sewing two weeks!

I'm so excited that your Beatles dress came out so well, thanks for posting the pics.

Those are all amazing! I really love the Beatles dress, and where is everyone getting this fabric? I saw a quilt made from it, and now this dress, and it seems to be in every state except mine! The red striped is too cute. You've got great style for your little monkey - she looks much better than the Hannah Montana clones that shop at Penney's!!

The cats know where my Sharpie went but they ain't tellin'.

much good stuff here!  The suiting jacket is lovely.  Love the beatles one, of course, esp the tulle (assuming) on the bottom.  I was going to give kitchykoo's neckline a go here as soon as I get a chance... its rather fetching, yes?

what is the material of the last one?

« Reply #9 on: September 02, 2008 05:38:06 PM »

I actually got the Beatles fabric at a Walmart, they had some cute Elvis stuff too. Grandma is obsessed with the Beatles so I figured it would be a nice little treat since we are flying out there to see her next week. I am going to try and make Grandma a matching purse. If only they had some David Bowie fabric my child would really love it. I got the red stripy knit there as well.

The bottom dress is a brown cotton that came embroidered and sequined for just $2.50 a yard..... I can't remember where I got it though, The neckline is made from a gold satin that I was so nervous to try and sew but it worked out well.

I can't thank you all enough for the lovely comments especially KitschyKoo and Vegbee... I credit you both with the inspiration for a lot of the things.

---- The black stuff on the bottom of the Beatles dress was just called fuzzy fringe on the bolt, it is pretty soft and was really easy to use. I love the stuff!
