Well I only seem to post here every 6 months or so.  Most of these are my own pattern or modified patterns.  All stencils except the Onix one is my artwork.  If there is anything you have a question on the construction...ask away!

Thanks for looking!  Grin

I love your style! Those are some amazing clothes, you've been very busy these past 6 months.

WOW, those are all fantastic! I love all the little "extras" in your style- a stripe, pointed collar, ruffles, just fantastic! You have some lucky (and cute:)) kiddos! Thanks for posting!!

Awesome!  Love all those clothes!  There's so much, I didn't get a good look at anything yet, but I do love how you make cool things for your son.  I have kind of given up on making clothes for my boy, other than pj's - he just doesn't find what I make sufficiently cool anymore.   Undecided

Gorgeous!  I especially love the second (pink/green) dress and the Christmas stuff...do you use patterns?  Amazing work!

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)

Thanks so much everyone!

Padester - I'm pretty lucky my son doesn't really care what I dress him in - he's pretty easy going right now.  I know it will come a time that he won't care to wear what I make him, either.

Shan-E-bear - here is the front of the dress:

norahkate - I use patterns for some things (like the Christmas stuff) but I usually modify them to some degree.  For instance her Christmas nightgown was supposed to have a fake placket in the front and button in the back which was utter nonsense.  I changed it to a real placket in the front and no button in the back, as she can readily dress herself at this age and I'd prefer she do it.

I have a basic bodice block that I modify for many of her dresses.  My son's clothes are mostly Ottobre patterns, but the pants are heavily modified in the pockets.  For the pink/green dress, it is basically my tutorial I shared a few years back for a shirred sundress, but the front was different pieces of ruffled fabric sewn together.  It wasn't the easiest to put together due to the piping.  I based it off a dress I saw on Stella McCartneys kids clothes site.  Here is the original dress: http://www.stellamccartneykids.com/minnie-girls-smocked-strappy-dress-light-blue.htm?ProductId=720253267&FiltreCouleur=0061&SEL=0

Oh wow! I clicked on the link to the Stella McCartney original...you totally out-designed the designer!  AND, I love, love, love your "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" picture!

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!
