New shorts for the girl

I've made a new pair of shorts for my girl from the latest ottobre magazine 03/2011, model #23. I think they look great. According to the measurements she was between size 92-94 cm. I made size 94, which I think is a little on the small side. They are tight, and she needs help to take them off.


I'm pretty proud of them. They look like they should according to the picture in the magazine. They are made from velour knit in a light pink.

Im making a dress from the same magazine but I'm stuck!! It makes me mad because it's my first dress with an invisible zipper. It's not the zipper that is the problem, it's the last assembling of the lining to the zipper and the shell.
Maybe I will never finish it...

New pants for my girl

I've made a pair of black isoli pants with yellow pockets and rib for my 2 year old. It's the first time I ever made pockets AND I made them myself. No pattern for it. I like the effect of the yellow and black, and had planned a yellow t-shirt for them, with a black application. Unfortunately all of my yellow jersey is not the rigth color - take some of the wow away from the pants.


Notice the yellow sticthing too - I love that. Yes, my pictures are not perfect, taken on our dining table. A couple of detail photos.




And then I would like to apologize if I mix english and american spelling/words. Hope you understand what I write anyway.

hjææælp - update

Er der nogle danske læsere derude, som kan hjælpe mig med at bruge blogger? jeg kan simpelthen ikke få lov til at redigere mine indlæg, uanset hvilken vej jeg forsøger. jeg kan også kun udgive dem fra rediger inlæg siden... sikke noget bras!!!

Update
bare glem det, det var vist noget med jeg anvendte en gammel editor fandt jeg tilfældigt ud af.

Now with pictures

And that is, what we all like to look at, right?
here is a picture of the dress I needed to sew for my daughter. There was supposes to be a invisible zipper in it, but I changed my mind as the fabric used is stretchy.
She was a princess for shrovetide - theres is a white belt for the dress too, forgot to take pictures of that. Next time I make this kind of dress, I will attach the belt, as it kept slipping up her chest.
And the fabric!!! god it was horrible to work with, very slippery. I don't know the english name for it, but directly tranlated it's nervous velvet. Maybe it would have been easier with a pfaff and its walking foot.
the sleeves are gathered with layers but it is not very visible, so much work for nothing.
It's my first dress ever to sew, so I'm pretty pleased with it.
