Sewn : Kids Ruffle Swimsuit

Sunday, October 17, 2010

As a sewing blog follower, I run into a lot of Mom blogs. It's not a bad thing, it just makes me wish I had a daughter to make cute dresses for. :)
Now don't pull out the birth control on me just yet- I'm not married, nor am I crazy. But this is where nieces and nephews come in handy!


The creative genius behind this idea was Dana from Made whose buttercream yellow version made my heart flutter.
Is that weird?
... Moving on.


When I realized I'd be doing it without a pattern, I thought I was in waay over my head, but it turned out to not be so bad.


All it took was some patience, a few stretch needles and voila! One cute little redhead.

  2. Your talent is amazing.
    I'm in clothing 1 and can barely accomplish the task of gathering on a simple apron. Though I would love to be a great seamstress I have the determination but lack the talent(Unlike you.)
    Oh well maybe I'll just stick with glue guns and safety pins?
    I completely 100 percent agree with you about mommy blogs. Mom bloggers are everywhere.Which is cool for them because I think I'm busy?!
    To reply to a comment you posted a while ago on my blog... You are so sweet and I love reading your comments! They make MY day also (:

  5. AMAZING!!!!!!!

    I can't sew worth a dime. For real. I'm THAT bad. Only sewing I'd do was sewing ribbons on my pointe shoes for ballet :P And it took me HOURS. Lol.

  11. This is sooo cute too! I wish I had your talent. In answer to your question, I studied at Macquarie University in Sydney. I haven't heard of Curtin University, but if you have the chance to study abroad you definitely should! It's such a unique opportunity, I highly recommend it!

  26. This is great Haylee! I don't even know if I could accomplish that many ruffles in one outfit. Although, I'm going to attempt to make a Christmas dress for my daughter with some ruffles in it.

    Thanks again for your kind comment about my card. What can I say, I'm blushing.....

    You are an excellent seamstress by the way!!!
