Ok so this is a new blog and I'm still figuring things out as far as the computer side of things. I am going to expand my horizons this month and next year January 2013 by posting some sewing tutorials as well as pictures. In the meantime, here is a submission for Project Run and Play (and soon to be tutorial) on my girls thanksgiving dresses. I will also see if I can find a picture of a similar dress I did for my eldest girl in Christmas material a few years back. I'm hoping the pictures show the details I place in sewing and inspire some different techniques for other sewing buds. Happy Holidays....Enjoy. AK
Too cute for words!!! My little blessings....
I made both dresses with a mix of materials...knit, cotton and some vintage lace to ad a touch to the hem. As you can tell the orange knit does not match exactly. My inspiration came from a hand me down orange t-shirt given to my daughter. I had some of the cottons lying around and then added others from different sources.
I also used an online tutorial found here: http://makeanddogirl.com/2011/11/felt-flower-tutorial-in-action/ on the felt flower and simply made it a removable pin. This allows it to be removed when washing the dresses or when they are eating and going to make a mess.
As I stated I will have a tutorial soon on how to make this dress as well as the proportion for approximate sizes. Sew be patient for sew much more.....AK
