The title says it all in this one, right? I've been busy sewing up some fun clothes for the girls, and I have a busy April here on ye ol' blog (hint hint fun things in store! see the sidebar for a clue), so I thought I'd put them all into one ginormous post. So good luck to you all, hope you can finish it.
You just know I couldn't stop making these shirts! She grew out of her old ones anyways. They're adorable, and so fun to pick out the fabric pairings! This one I made the sleeves gathered a bit so they fit in better. See this tutorial for info about that. I also cut the front piece a little wider and gathered it a bit before sewing it to the bodice.
Politely begging for her Pez candies. I tell you, they work!
Oh, and those buttons? Adorbs, right? I got them here and was so excited when they went with this fabric-hooray for using up buttons! Or am I the only one who hoards and collects them? Nah! just kidding, I didn't think so.
Also, try not to notice the left side of the bodice I cut upside down. Why do I always point out these things? lol.
The main fabric is Chris Chun, Le Jardin de Papillons, Garden in Brown. The trim fabric is Clothworks Mostek-Avalon scallops in Pink.
I've had this pink striped knit shirt waiting for me in my refashion pile for...like...eva, so I finally used it to make a top for the Sadester! I thrifted it-I love using thrifted knits from high quality companies, like Lands End, etc. I got this one for less than $1! I just sewed up a simple knit shirt...and then...
...I cut out little different sized circles and hand sewed them on across the front neckline-easy and pretty quick!
I also made a jean skirt for her-which is too poufy...my bad. It's still cute in these pics, but the fabric is so stiff it's a bit crazy. Oh well!
She is doing the hands on hips pose a lot lately, she cracks me up!
Here's a better shot of the skirt-it has some tucks along the bottom-I used this tutorial for that-very cute effect! Just wish I'd cut off some of the width. Oh well! That's my tiny 2 year old's fault for being tiny. I'll have to try again I guess.
I think I needed some heavier interfacing for the waistband, but it works. We won't mention how I sewed the waistband on crooked. Oops.
The fabric I used is from my super cool sponsor, Lily Bella Fabrics! I used this for the main fabric, and this for the accent.
Sadie is letting me play with her hair lately, so I tried this braided do'. Pretty cute, and her hair looks AWEsome after it comes out, frizzy and going every which way. lol.
Of course, she's a fan of the pockets. Can you blame her? Pockets are awesome for kids.
And I couldn't leave Charlotte out of the fun! I made this little knit shirt out of some fabric my supa cool bloggy friend Katie gave me!
She seems to like it!
