Girls Tutu Skirt

Since summer is official here, guess it is time to start to showcase summer.
This season is the easiest to make clothes for. You can get away with not lining dresses. I can't believe how many elastic waist skirts, and maxi dresses I have made already.

I made a pink tutu skirt for the girls because I know how much they like to dress like princesses.
Used this no sew treasures for tots tutu tutorial and was I glad I didn't have to sew it.. yes!!  Strange cos I thought I loved sewing. (Guess it was on project that couldn't go wrong if no sewing is involved)

Made the heart using diamant√© iron on.
I took a plain pink t shirt and applied some diamanté iron on. Made a 'star' on one shirt and 'heart' on the other to add some 'shine'

Anyway I bought this 6" tulle roll of 100 yards and used pretty much everything for the two tulles. Using the tutorial above (which was pretty easy and straight forward) I made mine with a finished length of 13". If making this tulle skirt my advice is that add a few more inches to the length you use as the tulle tends to compress itself and look shorter than it actually is.

Thanks to summer I have two happy tutu princesses.

Thanks for stopping by.

Beige short sleeve dress

This is one of our winter dresses and with some sort of wool mix.
This dress is not lined  (quite unlike me but which I want to be doing more of now., at least for casual outfits)

This was made using burdastyle 9564  same as this dress  (the brown strawberry dress) 
Bias binding was used round the neck line, four chocolate buttons was used and cream  bows (just for the sake of it :)) attached to the sleeves and hem of the dress.

9564 Dress  : Burda Pattern : sizes:  2  to 7 years
Made with Burdastyle 9564


Could see myself making more of this kind of dresses as its a bit more grown up looking and not too 'girly', not that there is anything wrong with 'girly' dresses as we love 'girly' dresses.

...but finally managed a smiled.

Would like to call this part of 'my little lady collection'.

posted pictures in this post by mistake before finally editing and writing the words in. lol
Hope you like what you see and will be back.
