    Hi, Yes it is Heathers crown, I think it is Cindy's crown

    Yes Simply sweet, done with panels, I love that it is done like this. I am a definitely fan of the panel dress!

    Ahhh I missed your reply.
    Our plan is to go to Birch Run tomorrow then head to the hotel in Madison Heights. The next day we will be at Great Lakes and stores around there. staying in Madison Heights for the night, then heading to Port Huron area specifically Hobby Lobby on Gratiot. I'm not sure which Joanns we will be going to yet but based on our somewhat itinerary do you have a suggestion? I know it won't be the one on Gratiot rd as we went to that one last year and it was kinda small and blah.

    Not sure if you are around there at all for a meet up or where Novi is, but let me know!

    The dresses look great and so do the shirts. They fit the little girl so nicely.

    Got my new sewing buddy today. Can't wait to see how the clothes look on it.

    I know some of you are interested in examples of pockets on Easy Fits. Here's some I did for a recent Big Give. Since the shorts were denim I didn't really want to do the cargo pockets I'd done before but I needed to use the Cat in the Hat material since I signed up to do shorts that matched their Thing 1/Thing 2 shirts.

    Nannye - the dresses are great - I especially love the "Basic" disney - all black and red and yellow and dots. Beautiful.

    Purpleears - Oh, I'll play with the machine with the room as it is, it would just be easier if I moved some stuff around! :laughing:

    I have a couple of outfits to design. A friend requested something for her twins (boy & Girl) for 4th of July so I'm percolating something for that. But since neither of my dear friends are really Disney people, I'm also plotting some AG style doll clothes. I have about 7 naked AG type dolls (I think most of them are the ones they sell at Target - My Generation maybe?) that I rescued from thrift stores in my room somewhere that I need to clothe. Then, If I get them all clothed and pretty, I can go rescue some more.:wizard:

    The dresses look great. I am glad the Mom loved them after all the early drama with fabrics and such.

    Very cute! I like the subtle use of the fabrics. The easy fit is my go-to for my boys, they have quite a few pants and shorts.

    Lynnie Pinnie has a Boy and Girl patriotic monkey w/ sparklers that would be perfect for boy/girl twins. My friend's twin boys birthday is the 4th of july, so I am doing birthday t-shirts for them with the boy monkey. I was at hancock fabrics the other day and they already have patriotic stuff out. And actually, Lynnie Pinnine has a lot of boy/girl designs that my twin mama friends love for their boy/girl twins. I am currently helping my friend with boy/girl twins who turn 3 in sept to plan and create outfits for the twins and their older brother for their disney birthday kids-under-3-are-free trip. I have been called an enabler more than once in recent weeks, but I have helped her pick fabric for pirates league outfits for all 3, safari outfits and toy story outfits.

    I just got the pics back from a friend who had her daughter model the dress I made and took some fabulous photos of her in it. I used the Fairytale Pattern Design Irelyn Peek-a-boo ruffle dress which I think turned out adorable. She is having a contest on her FB page so I had an actual deadline to get this done. (The contest ends the 19th.) I did the portrait peasant for underneath, so she can take off the dress and just have a peasant top for the day after breakfast with Pooh. It's hard to see the details, the fabric is all from the same collection of Winnie the Pooh. The yellow has bumblebees on it, the blue is like Pooh toile and the back is a quilt panel with all the looks together. I loved the look of that fabric, it's licensed fabric but seems more classic than cartoony.

    The dress went together easier than I expected, but I used it as an opportunity to learn how to do ruffles AND rolled hems with my serger, so it wasn't exactly an afternoon project.

    Those are really cute shorts.

    That is an adorable dress and little model.

    Erin - great job on everything. I am glad to hear that the mom appreciated your effort after the whole fabric saga.

    Congrats! I am sure things would look better on it than on the lampshade :rotfl:

    I really like how you did the pockets. Thank you for sharing! I am sure the family appreciated the special shorts!

    That's the same reason why my sewing room is often a mess. I would rather play with my machines than cleaning up.

    I can't wait to see what you make for the twins. I am sure you will make fab outfits for the rescued dolls!

    The dress looks beautiful! I am sure the girl is thrilled with it too!

    I think you will look lovely in your ruffle butt skirt. You are petite and can easily wear that style. With my wide load, I'd scare everybody walking behind me :thumbsup2

    I think that everything will go smoothly for the bat mitzvah. Tomorrow we have our first rehearsal. I think that the girls will do really well. We hired a friend to be our cantorial soloist so that is the thing I am most nervous about. She has to learn all the songs and it will be her first time doing this. She is a wonderful singer and a music teacher at a high school so I am sure she will do a good job for us.

    Have fun fabric shopping. If you are going to Joanns, make sure you get their free phone app. It has good coupons usually.

    Enjoy your new sewing buddy. I just ordered one too and I'm waiting for it to arrive.

    I love the look with the little pop of color. Not too much and not too little. I just made a ton of easy fit shorts for my nephews. They love them.



    Glad that you had a chance to make the Irelyn dress. I bought the pattern and I have it printed out and waiting to be used. I just haven't had time to get to it yet. The dress turned out great. I hope you win the contest. I sitll haven't figured out ruffles on my serger but I love my ruffler on the sewing machine. Rolled hems are a delight! I just love them. It is fun to see your dress too because I made one in the winter using some of the same fabrics. I always love to see how somebody else uses the same fabrics.

    Erin- Somehow I didn't pick up your quote but your dresses turned out super! I love the colors, appliques and everything. So glad that it worked out so well since you had such a rocky start with this mom. And the t-shirts are adorable as well. With the panels on the Simply Sweet, try tapering them to be thinner at the top and wider at the bottom. That gives you lots of twirl but gets rid of some of that bulk at the waistline.

    Thank you!! :)

    I have finished the Imagination Movers dress, but won't get a pic until the concert. Because I am using the same pattern for an Animal Kingdom custom, I'm skipping way ahead on my to-do list so I can stay in the groove. Got it all cut out and the AK logo embroidered on the back panel.

    Very cute!! A friend gave me some of that Pooh fabric, but I used it before I got my embroidery machine.

    That will be exciting if he gets it up and running and all restored!!!

    THose all came out great!!!!! I especially love the apron and halter top!

    How much longer until the Bat Mitzvah?

    All of that came out so wonderfully!

    Congrats!!

    I love those shorts!!!

    Adorable!!!!!

    Diane, phone app? I have a blackberry, i'll have to search quick, but I did print some off the website. I need to learn the tapering, I'm wondering how they will stitch together at the top if they are tapered would it be harder?
    Thanks

    Did you find the phone app? This week one of the coupons was good for 50% off any regular priced item.

    If you do tapered panels on the skirt, it will stitch together the same way. You can make the skirt even more full by tapering the panels so that it is more of a circle skirt effect. Sews together fine at the top. Since the top is thinner than the bottoms it reduces the bulk right at the waistline. I have to admit that I don't taper all my panels but I really should!

    So even though I haven't been sewing, I have been on a pattern buying binge. I bought one McCalls pattern on the 99 cent sale at Joanns. Then Create Kids Couture was having a flash sale on Monday and I bought 3 patterns. Then this morning a friend on FB posted a link to a new designer with an adorable knit tank top pattern on sale for 50% off and I bought that too! The designer is called Jocole. The pattern is cute! Here is a link in case you all are interested in taking a look. It would make a cute top for this summer, especially for a beachy type outfit.

    goteamwood - that dress is fabulous!! and I love the idea of sundress/jumper styles - there's so much more use from them.

    dianemom2 - see, those of us who are more generously endowed in the rear area are just a century or so to late. We've got natural bustles that an entire fashion was created to reproduce.
    and
    I've got more patterns than I have time to make them: although I did actually pick up some patterns for me during the last sale.

    I have some new applique designs I want to try this evening, so sewing may actually occur!

    Awww thanks Diane. We will see if anyone makes any "smart" comments when it is warm enough to wear the skirt outside. I am actually not that small, but my height makes me look smaller than I really am! My sister, who wears the same size clothing, looks "chubby" as she is 6" shorter than me.

    I hope the rehearsal went smoothly today.

    Sounds like you have been busy. Looking forward to pictures of these outfits!

    I am glad I am not the only one with a pattern hoarding problem. I hope you will have fun trying out the new applique designs!

    Erin - I got my Kona cotton order yesterday. The black was in fact, black!

    Since we are doing some enabling here -
    Pickle Pie Designs is having a 40% off sale. I tried a couple of their in the hoop zipper bags and they turned out quite nice.

    (whoops I deleted the picture)
    That is sooo cute. But I don't have another day of Disney to make it for :(

    Where did you find the great polka dotted fabric? I've been looking for some (even though I don't need it)

    Update on the animal print twirl skirt for my niece. Unfortunately, although my mother's new serger says it ruffles 2 to 1; it is more like 1 1/2 to 1. :( So, the prototype wasn't as twirly as I wanted, and the embroidered pieces ended up stacked on top of each other rather than spread out across the skirt. I guess it's back to old fashioned gathering for me. It's still cute though. We had a school trip to the zoo, so I gave it to her to wear and will make a twirlier one for Disney. I didn't take too many pics - It was COLD! It had been 60 a few days before, but I don't think we hit 40 that day. Somehow I ended up with no pictures of her below the waist. So no pics of the skirt.:confused3
