Kiddies Clothes.

Post by Lorraine on Fri 18 Nov 2016 - 19:34

These are both 18 - 24 months. I made the blue one just to see if the pattern went together well and it did. However, I decided I didn't like the rouleau loop fastening or the inside raw edge on the ruffle, so I've adapted the pattern to use buttons on the back and then I'll either use a hem band or just a simple hem, both of which are much neater as I slip stitch the hem bands so no raw edge or top stitching. I LOVE the sheep, lol. I'm doing another using some cat fabric that was left from a bag and today, somebody has already told me they want it without even seeing it, lol.

I really like the colour of the first one and the lace sets it off nicely, but the sheep one will sell quickly for sure, it just makes you smile.

They are lovely Lorraine. My niece would love the sheep one but think she's a bit old for it at mid twenty's.

The more unusual fabrics are popular for clothes at the moment, love the sheep one.

Ditto the sheep one! Lovely pattern, though, Lorraine - am sure they'll sell really well. And nice that you can use up some of your left-over fabric - recycling!

Cat dress. She paid me 15 for this. Mr Green


And then I thought, it might be nice to have something for little boys too, so I'm making some waistcoats. I'm doing one out of the sheep fabric too.

It wouldn't cover your time, but it covers costs and a bit of pocket money. On the bright side it won't earn you enough to affect any benefits. They are gorgeous clothes and someone's getting an absolute bargain. You can't get much more as mass produced stuff is so cheap, a pity.
Nice (needle) work and not unpleasant, enjoy.

These haven't been in the shop as she has a woman who makes pinafore dresses and gave her the monopoly. Anyway, my latest batch now. Must get them seen somewhere before I make more, ha ha.
