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. 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. Step 5: Once the ruffles are sewn onto the jacket you can go back and remove all the gathering stitches. And an old jacket and passed down pjs get new life…. and they were getting holes in the feet!

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.
Tsumami Kanzashi Flower Hair Clip I have recently discovered these beautiful folded flowers, and I absolutely cannot stop making them. Tsumami Kanzashi are traditional Japanese folded flowers, made from small squares of silk, that are typically worn by women as hair ornaments in traditional hairstyles. They seem really complicated and intricate, and they can certainly be that if you really want; but it completely doesn't need to be! These can be used in countless applications. There are a few tutorials out there on the internet, but to find a good variety in petal shapes can certainly be difficult, you just have to keep looking, and just grab a square of fabric and just test stuff out.
The Shirt Skirt July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day, during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch, we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. I developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! The shirt skirt perfect for summertime. I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it, they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately! The process is so easy. I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. So, get your super cheap thrifted shirt. To determine what shirt size you should get, just make sure it will go around you. I like to use thread the same color as my fabric. And that’s it!

Handkerchief Skirt A handkerchief pointed-hem skirt is flattering to all, but especially for short-legged people because the points break up that horizontal hemline. No pattern is needed to make this skirt style. It is a simple block layout. One easy way to get that effect is to hem two squares of fashion fabric, each having four points (called a “handkerchief” hem) and layer them for an eight-pointed look. You will need: 2 ½ yds. of fashion fabric, 45″ wide1 yd. of waist band elastic, 1″ wideCoordinating thread10 yds. of flat ribbon braid (optional) The size of the circular opening should be just big enough to pull over your hips, and can then be tightened with elastic. Cut 2 squares of fabric doubled the finished length. Place template in center of square and trace out. * TIP: Increase or decrease the circle by 1/8″ to change the overall total circumference measurement by 1/2″. Like this: Like Loading...

Umbrella Skirts Like designing your own styles to dress in but not skilled with complex stitching or comfortable with creating new patterns? From their shapes and size to their scale and appearance, skirts and umbrellas have a lot in common – except, perhaps, that when it comes to an umbrella the interior is designed to be seen publicly and thus is as carefully considered and crafted as the exterior … whereas, well, looking up a skirt … that might get you in trouble. But seriously: used umbrella material is a perfect choice in many regards to upcycle into a skirt, dress, other easily-planned piece of refab clothing, as designer Cecilia Felli discovered during her creative umbrella-to-skirt upcycling experiments. Moreover, since umbrellas are well known for breaking down, this provides a simple do-it-yourself way to take advantage of something that frequently falls apart. Umbrellas come in all kinds of colorful, creative and unique patterns that convert readily into skirt material for women or girls.
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. The measurements given are for the average size, but they may be readily adapted to smaller or larger types. Cutting Your Pattern. – For the skirt sections, provide a piece of paper 27 inches square. Tie a string 27 inches long to your pencil, and, holding the free end on the corner a, as in Fig. 1, draw and arc, as shown.

(tutorial) Ice Cream Social Skirt - iCandy handmade 25Jul Happy Monday, everyone! I had some striped jersey, and a real need for summer skirts, here is my latest skirt: It is a striped circle skirt. But I really love how it turned out. Even with my sewing-with-knits intimidation, it was super easy and fast. I added some elastic trim to the hem, though it isn’t necessary. Bonus: This skirt is SUPER comfy. Oh, and the cardi? Do you want to make your very own? Materials: about 60-65″ of striped jersey/knit fabric, 60″ wide Coordinating Thread Elastic trim (optional) To make your pattern, there are a million tutorials you can find. Adjustment: Measure your waist, and subtract 2″.
