Saturday, April 20, Happy Birthday, Mom! Posted by CraftyHourMom at 1: Abigail is in size 1T or 18mo now, so I’d say this pattern fits a little on the large size. All done pictures, Mommy! SO I used some narrow single-fold white bias tape as a hem facing. Hopefully can add some modeling pics later – she is in a mood now. Then Pattetn added a facing to the inside of the waist, instead of folding a casing down.
Also probably should have tried to make the overskirt part stop where the bodice of that colour stops. But I still love it. Of course I found that out after naptime, when I had already neatly bound the neck and opening edges with narrow bias tape, a lovely job, if I may say so. I did the flames one as a single layer, and added an extra 1.
No topstitching visible anywhere – hand-stitched the back of the hem, and machine-stitched the front hem under the ruffles. I had wanted to make a simple dress for Abigail, sort of a canvas for something fun, but didn’t have quite enough of this charcoal twill, so skirt it was.
Oh, well, another 2 yards off the shelf!! You basically leave a hole in the lining at one side seam, then gather the shell and sew the shell and lining together through that gap, “as far as you can reach”. I think I’d be happier with it if I’d made the smaller size bodice, and also either extended the polka dot side of the bodice more than I did. Posted by CraftyHourMom at I based my pattern pieces on a size 80 to fit her this summer, but I think this one may run wide.
I don’t really trust my pattern drafting skills, plus, Abigail has such a huge head we’ll need the back neck opening Wednesday, April 10, Polka dot ruffle top. This one was a bit of a trial for something else I had in mind – I’m glad I decided to add a little detail, because I love it!
Such is life with little people who are the paytern reason I’m sewing, I guess!
Lots of ways to customize it so they never look the same. I used the amazing patterb skirt calculator by Patty of thesnugbug. Textileswhite cotton trim Size: I wasn’t sure a nightie would be practical in size 2 she’s still in 18 moso I made it a 3 for next summer.
I think this will just be for layering instead of a sleeveless top.
I figure it will fit her skiry while, as a skirt, or under skirts or dresses. My mom’s birthday is April The pattern directions were for an invisible zipper, which I didn’t have, so I had to try remember how to partern a regular zipper in a dress skift a lining. The top ruffle on the skirt part ended up being just a touch to low to catch the serged edge in the waist seam, so I used a little white ribbon to cover it.
It turned out beautiful – the only issue is, I did not do the keyhole opening at the back deep enough, so it still doesn’t go over her head I have been keeping track – so far, I have sewn over 18 yds from my stash and nothing new has gone on the shelf!

But — I made this top, based on the lining of an Ottobre dress, still trying to figure out a woven top for my big-headed kid so I can do the Wellen tank.
