ruffled jacket When I was pregnant with our oldest I remember walking through Baby Gap. At the time our income was nearly non-existent so the fact that I was even in BabyGap is odd. In the sale racks I saw a little red jacket. It was simple, light weight and seemed perfect for the baby boy I had yet to meet. The only size they had was 12months, but his birthday would be in the spring so I thought it would work just right. One of my favorite pictures of Biggest Brother is of him learning to walk in a park, holding his daddy’s hands and wearing this jacket. The jacket got passed down to the other two boys. Warning: I know basically nothing about sewing. Supplies: Well worn jacket & and well faded pjs that are too small. Step 1: Cut the pjs into 1 inch strips. Step 2: You are going to create ruffles by sewing a gathering stitch. Step 3: Once you have made all the ruffles pin them down on the jacket. Step 4: Stitch the ruffles down the center. And an old jacket and passed down pjs get new life….

52 Free Dress Patterns Posted on | November 7, 2013 | 19 Comments I’m a firm believer that sewers can never have too many free patterns. With that in mind, here are 52 Free Dress Patterns, divided by style. Notes about the patterns are list­ed for some of the dress­es. Patterns from existing dresses require laying out an item of clothing onto fabric, marking it, and cutting out. No pattern needed usually means that the dress is made from a recycled shirt. Drafting instructions means that you will have to make your own pattern, but the designer included all the information needed.

1930s Under Dress Falling into the lines of each individual figure as if by magic, this slip, ultra modern because of its bias cut, is a perfect foundation under fitted frocks. And it’s as fascinating to work out as a picture puzzle, built up, as it is, from squares and triangles of fabric. For the average figure, you will need 2 ½ yards of material, such as flat crepe or radium in silk or rayon. Cutting Your Pattern. – For the skirt sections, provide a piece of paper 27 inches square. on the corner a, as in Fig. 1, draw and arc, as shown. Circles and dots blue & blue dress !! Now with tutorial Finally, finally, finally!I'm so exited that i finished my first summer dress! I really needed one and the ones i started, for some reason, i never finished them (didnt like them, weren't what i wanted, blah) lol, but this one i did like, i actually love it so much. Here's the dress: i'm still not sure if it fits my figure or makes me look weird. sorry the pictures are so crappy, there's no one to take them and these two are the best of the bunch. Here's a close up of the fabric (i think this one's the best pic What do you think? This is my first tutorial so bear with me These are the pieces you will need: Measurements:-Waist-Skirt Length-Top dress length, to decide where to put the waist band (mine's about 15 in. from shoulder to waist) To dut the skirt part just fold your fabric in half and measure half of your waist in a corner, and the length as you would a regular circle skirt.

Make It and Love It: Paper Bag Skirt.......{{and hidden mistake}} Looking for the Honeybear Lane giveaway? Scroll down or click here. Okay, it’s not really a skirt made out of a paper bag. But it’s called a “paper bag” style skirt. (high-waisted, cinched in like a paper bag, a bit poofy, etc.) Kind of a fun little skirt style that can be made pretty easily. Well, unless you mess it up like I did the first time around. (But I’ll show you what I did wrong and then tell you the easier route…..don’t worry, it’s nothing huge.) I know, all paper bag skirts versions are a bit different…….but here’s my take on it. All cinched in with that flouncy bow tied in the front. And with plenty of pleats, which gives it a nice fullness. And yes, we need fullness around here. Because fullness allows for plenty of movement in the skirt…….you know, to help while gathering pine cones and such. The back is gathered with elastic (but is hiding underneath that waist tie), giving the skirt a nice snug fit. Why not make one or two? They are certain to put smiles on faces. See the seams?

How To Sew A Victorian Skirt A old tutorial I had on livejournal, I hope you like it :) So I thought that I would share my how to for this quite easy sewn skirt in taffeta that I made for a friend of mine, it is a two layer skirt with strings so that you can tie up and drape the panels as you wish. This is a bit simplified, On the original skirt the top of the skirt was lined with satin so it was not completed in the exact same way as in this tutorial, but trying to explain that whole deal was to time consuming to be worth it. Material you will need:Fabric: Of your choice, around 2 times the length of your skirtA zipper: I use a hidden zipper because I think it looks better, but a ordinary one is just as good.String: The length of your drapes and a little more *2*6 (you chose one can both have it the whole way up on the skirt or just half, or something similar) I use cotton string 0,5 cm (0,2 inches) thick. The pattern is a really easy one, it consist of 12 panels and then a long rectangle that is the ruffles.

*TUTE* Who can resist polka dots - Pencil skirt w gathered waist darts PIC HEAVY so i made an actual skirt of a test garment i posted previously -> I used no aloha's suggestion on the polka dotted fabric - i wanted a more classic white and black but i couldn't find suitable fabric so i went with green & white instead. the piping is white satin, it has an invisible zip at the centreback and I added a slit at the back to make it easy to walk in. hope you all like! laid flat My instructions for this skirt assume some basic pattern making and sewing experience/knowledge. Create the pattern pieces. Modify the front block (1/4 of front skirt):Drop the waist by 5cm along the waistlineBring in side seam at waist by 0.5cm (so that skirt hangs properly)Slightly curve the left leg of the dartCreate fullness for gathering by slashing and spreading the pattern piece according to the diagram.Slash approx 3 times and open up by 1.5cm Bring in side seam at hem by 2.5cm. Sew darts for the back.Join side seams of skirt.

Sweetheart Ballet Tee Tutorial | IS•LY | I Still Love you Here’s yet another way to spice up your t-shirts when you get a little bored with the plainness of them all. I did this a few weeks ago to two of my plain tees. I’m threatening to do this on all of the t-shirts I own. Seriously. Watch out! Materials: Fitted Tee Sewing Machine Coordinating thread Elastic thread Scissors Magic Erase Fabric Pen (not pictured) Cut the collar off: only cut a little around the back & cut more around the front to make a deeper neckline. Find the center of the front collar. HAND wind your bobbin with elastic thread. Turn your tee inside out and pull on the elastic thread until your shirt is as rouched as you’d like. Trim loose ends after securing the thread in place with a square knot. Dab the front of your shirt with water and a Q-tip to erase the magic marker line. FINI!
