Am going to teach a young child how to make dresses for her Barbie and I had a bit of time on my hands and ran these up.
Pink one was improved by sewing a channel inside for elastic or it would just have been a kaftan. Should really add something to hide the raw edges on the inside of the sleeves.
Quite pleased with the green one as I’ve never sewn elastic onto material before so I even french seamed down the back.
Ok so I had some down time. Have included the no sew top and dress as a halter and strappy design (and her very big sister created a few others when the dresses were given). Made a purple dress out of some upcycled pants! The fleece was a scrap I had, the skirt is from what was cut out for the arms.And the shrug is from the toe of the tights. Great fun! Lol!
Pink is the bottom leg of a pair of cropped trousers I’ve used some before for my owl bag lining.
Green is the sample og Brighton material given away with the Quiliting magazine-had to do something useful with it the magazine was rubbish and this was the biggest piece of material!
