Another Pattern Remix


Pattern Remix Me Sew Crazy Spring Fever Dress 023

 

Here is my version of Me Sew Crazy’s Spring Fever Dress! None too soon, the linky party opened yesterday at Project Run & Play!

 

Here is a picture of the original dress.

 

 

Here are some more pictures of MY version!

This was also my first attempt at covering buttons. It was SO much easier than I thought it would be! :D

I printed out the pattern in the largest size available and then set to making it a size 8.

Here are my pattern pieces upped to size 8.  (Please excuse the messy writing!)

I changed the back of the original dress to the front, left off the sleeves, and changed the skirt quite a bit. Instead of having 4 ruffles for the skirt I have one over a regular skirt. ;) I didn’t mix it up a whole lot but I think I did enough to make it MY way.

Here are my pieces all pinned and ready to sew!!!

 

I had thought about using some of the eyelet trim for sleeves but then thought it might be a bit too much…. Still not sure about that. LOL

 

So, there it is! I hope you like it!!!

 

In other sewing news, I am STILL waiting on my shipment from Joann’s. GRRRR! Amazon is sooooo much faster! I ordered the owl pellets, Magic School Bus Electricity kit and 2 books a few days AFTER ordering from Joann’s and the Amazon shipment got here days ago! SIGH……

Tutorial Love


OK, here’s where I admit to being a bad blogger, again… SIGH…. I haven’t actually sewn anything today. I am sooooo sore from the sunburn that I can barely move. :/ Don’t worry, though. I should be much better tomorrow and I will finish up that blouse!! LOL Then I have a couple of things floating around in my head that I will be working on. That means more tutorials for you! :) In the meantime I thought I would leave you with some tutorials that I Pinned. :) Hopefully I can get this post out before the power goes out, again! We are in the middle of a storm! Thankfully it should be bringing us MUCH cooler temps for next week! YAY!!

Eyelet Tank Tutorial


Here it is! The tutorial I didn’t plan on! LOL

Image

So here we go!

Supplies!

Image

If you are doing a young child’s size you will probably need less than a 1/2 yard of eyelet (or whatever) and less than a 1/2 yard of lining. C1 is a 5 in waist and chest but an 8 in length if that helps you any.

You will need a tank that fits your child to use as a template. Brown paper or wrapping paper (or whatever) to cut as a pattern.

And your basic sewing stuff. ;)

Step 1- place your child’s tank on the paper and trace around it leaving room for seam allowance.

Image

Step 2- Cut out your pattern

Image

Step 3- Pin your newly made pattern to your lining material on the fold.

Image

Step 4- Cut 2

Image

Step 5- Pin your pattern to your eyelet on the fold.

Image

Remove cat from eyelet

Image

Step 6- Cut 2

Image

Step 7- Pin right sides together one eyelet and one lining

Image

Step 8- Start at one end and sew continuously around to the other end, leaving the bottom open

Image

Step 9- Do the other eyelet and lining.

Step 10- Turn right side out and press and trim seams (if needed)

Image

Step 11- Pin front to back with right sides together

Image

Step 12- Sew top of straps together

Step 13 – Sew sides together

Image

Step 14- Pin and hem the bottom

Image

Step 15- Turn right side out and press seams

Image

Congratulations! You just made the eyelet tank! So simple and cool for summer! And it goes with ANYTHING!

I’ll be sure to take pics of c1 in her tank and May Flowers skirt tomorrow morning! :)

In other news… LOL I haven’t been able to sew a stitch on the Retro Butterick ’56. I’ve been WAY too busy today. BUT I did hit another fabric sale at Hancock’s!! I got some awesome deals!!!
