Here is my 6 month "show-all" of what I have sewed up for the kiddos.  Majority of the clothing are patterns I made.  I'll do another post later of DS' clothes since this ended up a bit long.

Any questions on the construction and I will be happy to answer.  I have blogged everything so it is all mostly written down.

Here goes...

This was DD's birthday dress last May.  It is my own pattern and took many hours hand-sewing the silver cording on the bodice.  She doesn't wear it very often, but looks like a princess when she does. It is very twirly.  

A birthday gift for a friend of DD's.  I have a tutorial and size 5 pattern for this style of dress if anyone is interested.  Just let me know.

She wore this outfit all the time last summer. Fun and comfy!

A flounced skort with bike shorts attached.  Another well-worn outfit.  Able to handle the monkey bars with no undies showing.

She wore this ONCE I think.  Getting out of wearing dresses, unfortunately.  

This one I got the inspiration from Chasing Fireflies (tons of cute girl clothes).  This is a princess seamed dress in stretch denim with godets.

New bikini design for the girl.  I'm going to try to do a tutorial on this one at some point this spring.  I made two others of this style, too.  She wears this one the most, though.

Another few skorts.

Then we have clothes for Fall.

I was obviously making the leggings a bit too long.  Oh well, she will grow.

The Christmas card outfit.  Upcyled the skirt from a dress I wasn't wearing.  I made the vest a bit too tight, so it's not getting much wearing.

Better view of the shirt:

The Christmas card:

Upcyled sweater from one I didn't wear.

Mullet top with matching pants. The brown knit actually has some sparkly threads in it but it doesn't photograph well.

Sparkly holiday outfit.

Comfy - jeggings and minky top

Thanks for looking and any comments. Smiley

Wow  Cheesy You are so talented, and your daughter looks so pleased with her outfits (and rightly so)!
The detail that went into the yellow dress is incredible. Again, wow!

Love the skirt with the shorts underneath.  Miss just 3 brought me a pair of leggings to go under her dress so 'all the bodies not see Emily's unnerpants' 
And the pink dress with the sash is just gorgeous Smiley

Beautiful clothes and your DD is a terrific model!  Do you make clothes for you DS as well (I am guessing because of the Christmas card)  I would love to make my little fellow clothes that are one of a kind but I am a bit daunted.

Where the wild things are is where I am most at home!

So cute! I hope I have a little girl someday to make cute clothes for!

I used to wear skirts with bike shorts underneath when I was a kid too--how cute that yours are built in and match!

Holy crow, your daughter is a stylish little fashionista! That bikini is so adorable and child-appropriate (what is with the garment industry these days?Huh), but I think the style might actually look good on ME! Is it weird that I would wear the purple summer set and the burgundy snakeskin set? Tongue

I love your posts, every single time Cheesy

Thanks so much everyone!   Grin

Yes, I do make clothes for him, too.  You can look at some of my past topics for clothes I have made for him.  I'll get another together for what I have made him in the past few months, too.  I usually make him pants because he is a skinny boy and nothing RTW fits his waist.

Learn how to use freezer paper stencils, if you don't already.  They can really jazz up plain tops that you make them.  I just match the tops to the pants.

Take a look at this group pool on Flickr:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/celebratetheboy/pool/

A lot of that is little boy clothes, so not all works for my 8 year old.  It can give you some ideas of how to make their clothes a bit more interesting, though.

Hope that helps!
