Holiday Gift Sewing for the "Little Divas"

Wow....I didn't realize how long it's been since I've posted to this blog! We've been very busy at ~Fashion Sewing Supply~ selling yards and yards of our exclusive interfacing and other products, and of course I've been up late sewing shirts for my clients!

But in my "spare time" (!!!) I managed to sew several outfits for my nieces' holiday gifts. Here are just a few of many..........


~YOU CAN CLICK PICS TO ENLARGE AND SEE DETAILS~


This tunic, made from cotton/lycra knit with an inset of woven cotton print is a "tweaked" version of an Ottobre Design pattern. The jeans with decorative seams are of my own design and made with a glorious cross-weave denim from Gorgeous Fabrics.




This "mod" tunic was made from fabulously soft jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics, and wide wale corduroy from a chain fabric store. The Tunic design is a "tweaked" version of an Ottobre Design Pattern. The jeans in this pic and all the others are from a pattern I drafted myself.


This simple little cross-over Top is made from soft cotton knit fabric found online. The only change made to the Ottobre Design pattern used, was adding lettuce-edge ribbing to the neckline.



The Top with metal eyelet twill-tape trim is made from super-thick black cotton velour. It has a mock-turtleneck, and was made from a basic Ottobre T-shirt pattern. The elastic-back jeans are fashioned from wonderful stretch-corduroy from Trendy Fabrics...found there at a super low price!


Made from another fabulous fabric find from Trendy Fabrics, this cute berry print stretch corduroy top is a variation of an Ottobre Design pattern. Matching berry corduroy, again from Trendy Fabrics made up into super-soft jeans.


This variation on a classic peasant blouse is an Ottobre Design....made from yet another fabulously soft stretch corduroy from Trendy Fabrics!


Can you believe I had this cute fabric in my stash for years? I really like the way my variation of an Ottobre Design pattern turned out...so bright and happy!


I think I have every fabulous stretch corduroy that Trendy Fabrics has in stock this season! This time the print stretch corduroy matched perfectly with the stretch velour used for my "tweaked" version of an Ottobre Design pattern.


Fleece from a chain fabric store is used in this variation of an Ottobre Design pattern. My variation features a double-lettuce ribbing neckline.


Plum stretch cord and a cute butterfly cotton interlock both from Trendy Fabrics makes a fun outfit. Again, this tunic top is a variation of a "tweaked" Ottobre Design pattern.


Bright cuddly fleece from a chain fabric store plus a basic Ottobre T-shirt pattern makes a very fun shirt with a jagged-edge batik applique.


Another fleece top with raw-edge strips of fabric used at neck and hems that also features eyelet trim.

I loved sewing for my girls when they were little - it's before they get the "I want to look like my friends" influences, so you can just let your imagination "off the leash." Great stuff - gorgeous use of color. Fantastic. almost makes me wish for grandchildren (not yet, not yet) so that I can do the same.

Hi

I just discovered your blog and i find it great !
even if i don't understand everything i feel how passionate and pro you are

I just quitted the press industry to create 3 month ago a blog that shows Paris through street style photo romances. It's a new way for me to humanize fashion.
I hope you'll like as much as people already like it.

As i need feed back from all over countries and culture to improve my work, I'll be glad to have your opinion and why not share links to share our work and because i am sure that you share my vision : fashion is for sheep, whereas style gives personality !

ps : if you need some of my photos, I'll be pleased to help you.

Best regards
