Help me and win!

I need your help! I've finally decided to sell something, and would like your feedback.

What style is your favorite (dress, skirt, or two fabric skirt)?
What is the most you'd be willing to pay for each of these items?
Which one is your favorite?

I'll be drawing a winner at random next week, and the winner will be sent their favorite one.



All dresses are halter.
Look here to see what the dress looks like on.
Size 0-3 months
(not completely finished. I still need to add straps and hem the bottom).
size 18 months -2T

size 2T/3T dress or 4T/5T long shirt.
(Dress 4 and 5 are the same size).

Look here to see how it looks on.
Skirts 1-4 are sized to fit 12-24 months. My daughter (size 2T) can wear it waist wise, but it starts to get a little short.
size 2T (long) up to 5T

Baby Gift...

My friend Robin wanted to make her Sister-in-law some cute things for her new baby. We had a fun time putting together a few things. It was especially fun to hang with her!
Wipe Case (we ran out of the ribbon to cover the bottom part)
Diaper Case
Binky Clip
All three together. Really cute!

This was inspired by a Christmas gift I was given last year (thanks Chelsey). I found this towel fabric in the remnant section at JoAnn's for less than $2.00. So I decided to make Daylynn a towel cover-up just like mine. Other than the raw edges (I zig-zaged them), I am happy with it.
P.S. I wish I had a serger. Any good ones for a decent price????

I made my first pair of pants today. I said I would post the "Good and Bad." I think these fall into the not-so-good category. They didn't sew up as nice as I'd like, they are a tad shorter than I was planning, and the front area isn't flattering at all. But I did make them, and that's what counts right? I used a very simple tutorial from Diaper Swappers. I didn't make these out of a shirt like the tutorial, so I had to sew the sides up. Not a big deal.

I made a couple of skirts this morning using elastic thread. I had three hours to myself while Day was at a play date! I made this green skirt for Annie (Day's play date's little sister).Then during nap today (I had a total of 6 hours to myself!) I made this cute skirt for Daylynn. Only's about an inch or two too short. It's still cute though!

Ruffled Poka Dot Dress...

I made this ruffle bottom polka dot dress. I really love elastic thread now...I've actually gone a little crazy with it. More projects with elastic thread to come...
(sorry for the poor pictures. It was late and Daylynn was not cooperating)

Shirred Dress...

Thanks to Laura, we were able to figure out the elastic thread. I can now say I am a fan of it like the rest of the world! Turns out the problem was the bobbin tension. If you are having trouble with it like I was, you might want to check that. Below is the dress I made. Again I got the idea from Made and love it!!!

I am trying to make a shirred dress like this one from Made. I am using elastic thread, and followed this tutorial from Thread Banger, but my fabric is not shirring up like the one in the tutorial. Any pointers. I have a brother machine. Does that matter? Help!
