A little dress for Eline

Here I am with a little dress for our home’s miss. This very pretty model in finely striped velvet is issued from Ottobre number 6/2013.
The robe has 3/4th sleeves that I stretched out, is doubled in cotton veil, and, above all, it has a girl’s thing: un underskirt in tulle. And that she really likes. The base model is rather large on my pretty one, so I had to reduce the model for about 6 cm on each side so as to be presentable.
To simplify my work I chose a finely striped material with motifs. Not a very good idea though: I had to juggle with joints vertically as well as horizontally.
The result is almost perfect 😉

In order to complete the panoply of my baby boy I absolutely needed a bath wrap. It is very easy to make, quite practical. It is embroidered by the machine. I do not usually double the hood and I embroider directly on the terry towel but I find it to be more beautiful that way. Don’t you agree?

The pattern is a home made model, as well as the biais.

Beautiful girl !

Here’s a little work … or rather a great work for Eline. If you see lots of kits, wallets and other accessories, I prefer to make clothes for my kids and those of others …

So this jacket was started in June and ended in September. After the photo shoot on a mannequin, I lengthened the sleeves because these kids grows too fast 🙂

I followed the pattern, I’ve just added a hood and some embellishment on the round neck, and along the buttonholes.

The set is made ​​of coated cotton and cotton satin lining (MT). Pretty buttons are from our village’s haberdashery.

Evening dress !

For a cousin’s wedding in early July, I made the outfits for children following the dress code without really knowing it!

For Nolan, I made a vest out from the Burda 2012 series, gray and white cotton linen with thin black stripes tennis.

For the vest: two false pockets in the colors of the liner and false placket in the back.

The pants has been made from the last Ottobre magazine. I added false pockets behind.

For Eline, a princess dress was required and in order to give it even greater significance, I added a tulle petticoat home-made model. The dress is made of white taffeta embroidered and adorned with silver sequins. The bust is lined with white cotton.

The dress is essentially from a Ottobre’s pattern, with as always some changes, like the length. The Day, the little girl wore a pink satin sash with a big knot. She was almost as beautiful as the bride.

Now up to the photos.

Sweet memory of a little girl

Our « old » daughter (6 years old) has also been a « little » daughter. I’m showing you my first creations done with my super Pfaff sewing machine (a nice birthday present, 6 years old also !)

For these clothes, I used a pants pattern from the book « intemporels pour bébés », reduced in every ways, as it was really too big ! The final pattern had nothing to see with the initial one. I also added some draws on its sides, as a reminder of those above.

The top comes from the same book : I changed the front to add a « plastron » and false buttons. It can be closed in the back with snap fasteners.

Eline is pretty, she is a (good old fashioned) real girl who loves beautiful fabrics, hearts and any glittering things !

So here is the polar jacket that I have made ​​on the same model as the sport jacket.veste polaire1

For my lovely daughter…

Eline has long legs, wondering who she looks like (perhaps her father :-))… and a wasp waist. The problem is to find a sweatsuit in which she looks like something else than a bag. Then after several catastrophic fittings in shops, I decided to make her a customized sweatsuit. And a sweatsuit that pleases to her father who has a sweatsuit phobia, who knows why 🙂
