    How adorable! And the applique is cute, too. :) I’m looking forward to learning how to applique so that I can make some cute things like this for my son. Thanks for the inspiration!

    cristylynn commented on the project Peter Pan

    Thanks for the compliments. As far as the stitching, the pants and shorts are both lined, so it’s just a simple straight stitch then turned right side out.

    After searching online for costume ideas, I decided to make my Little Man a Peter Pan costume.

    My son needed some warm dress pants. I wanted the legs of the pants to be wide enough to fit well over his braces, so I altered a pattern to do the trick.

    Thanks for adding this drawing because I was wondering what you meant about taking the sleeve part double, too. This looks like a great pattern!

    Thanks! I hope you find time to make your own soon! With a little one, it can be difficult to fit in sometimes. :) I’m sure you’ll do great!

    We rent a really great apartment, but with very old furniture. My husband asked me to make something to cover the devan.

    The summer nights are really bright in St. Petersburg, and my son’s room had very thin curtains. I found this cute circle print in St. P and the nice dark blue lining in America. The curtain rod …

    cristylynn commented on the project Linda skirt, basically

    Oh, yeah, the stripes do the same thing on the back left, which makes the look even better, in my opinion.
    Thanks for the compliment, too!

    cristylynn commented on the project Boy's Corduroy Overalls

    Thanks for the compliments! He seems to enjoy it, and thankfully I made the straps too long, which means, I can lengthen the outfit as he grows just by moving the buttons. Gotta love those kinds …

    Finally I remembered to have my husband take a picture of me while wearing the skirt! I didn’t intend a whole body picture, but oh well, hope it helps the stripes to be seen. At first I was disap…

    I made a pattern for long overalls for my little boy. It will need adjustments for the future, but I had fun making it, and he wears it well.

    I found this great material that I thought would make a great skirt, then I saw the Linda pattern, which didn’t look too hard. It’s not perfect by any means, but I can wear it, and the mistakes ar…

    Adorable! I’d love to hear more about the seam sealer, too. And was it difficult to sew with plastic?

    Light blue romper for my son. He needed some summer clothes (for when it eventually gets warm here), but I was having trouble finding some nice and affordable clothing for him. I had a hand-me-do…

    Thanks for this tutorial! I just made a romper for my son, and the snaps on the shoulders weren’t strong enough. But now I feel brave enough to try some buttons!
