    thebirchtree added the project Stripes Jumper Dress
    Stry1_listing

    Jumper / Pinafore dress in stretch jersey with big pockets.

    I made this dress so that it could be worn on it’s own or over a tshirt.

    The neckline is gathered with a piece of strong thread.

    thebirchtree commented on the project Squirrel print toddler tunic

    Thanks!

    I cut the pattern myself but really it wasn’t anything special, just an A line front and back bodice (with a small slit down the back and press stud) and then fluted arms. I’ll have to tr…

    thebirchtree added the project Cherry skirt and braces
    46c87af2ddb6dc27874cfc6ee7f67ceec76c50af_listing

    I am playing about with styles at the moment and after reading the the new Wendy Mullen book (Sew U, Home Stretch) I was tempted by the suspender / braces look.

    I decided against the pencil sk…

    A9b38f0247e44ed68507fe87fb10c36e1706bc77_listing

    I wanted to put together a simple pattern that I could use over and over again to make my baby’s long sleeved tops from.

    After a few attempts I think I have cracked it. The sleeves have littl…

    2987c7d24d71f56234b4b2d12ceab59c0fc6632f_listing

    I got there in the end with this one! The instructions were not very complete which made it difficult for a novice like me.

    I was keen to try this one as I haven’t had got any costumes that s…

    04479f1ce263a2435268b4d1a49c1e73f7f7316b_listing

    I used the top of the Vivienne Toddler dress pattern but modified it to give it slightly different shaping across the top.

    The skirt is gathered and made from material upcycled from an old dre…

    Ea9e71e3b997c0fd9941f0370f6d0a6bc1c6a82f_listing

    Very slightly adapted from the Charlie Pattern (the pouch became smaller and an inside pocket and I sewed the handles up the other way so it would fit on the back of a buggy)

    Adapted from a vintage 1970s Butterick pattern that had already been cut to fit my Mum (who is about a foot smaller than me and at least a stone lighter!)

    Needed a fair bit of adapting to size…

    Thanks!

    It is great material isn’t it? Kind of Laura Ashley with a twist :)

    One of my first dresses actually made from a commercial pattern (they all confuse me!)

    Slightly adapted from the Vivienne pattern to fit my 12 – 18 mth daughter.
