From scratch, no embroidery, he would have gone ape. He is 10 & not into the bling of it all yet. That's for my youngest daughter. Taking a 6x waist, dropping the inseam to fit a size 8 and lengthing it to fit a 10 was not a good start for a first pair of trousers.
Just about 4 years, I don't make a lot, only when they outgrow one or for majors, Sad thing is when I am finished making one I rarely have the camera ready, or if there is a show to do, I usually run it so I don't have alot of pictures of the kids! I did manage to make my son his pant, vest, and tie for Nationals. Whew, I'll never do that ensemble again. I told him the vest, yes, pants never in my lifetime!!
Hi, my name is Jess as well & I have been making dresses for my children for a couple of years. Funny thing is when we were in Atlanta a couple of years ago, I was in a fabric store and my friend kept calling my name and some other ID parents were there & following me around & thought I was you. I had to burst their bubble & tell them no, I don't make dresses for anyone other than my own kids. Your own children can live with my mistakes!!
*lol* you call doing team dresses having a break from dressmaking?...
I'm actually doing the same as you. Just finishing op on a soft skirt performance dress and have my competition solo in the works as well. Clients are calling me back to the sewing table beginning of september. I have 3 customs and perhaps more waiting between now and november. Perhaps I will need to make some class dresses as well and new outfits for our performance group.
jeeez, I'm breaking out a sweat just talking about it! :-D
"May I add another tip? Stop worrying about who your competitors are, or how they're dancing. You can't control them! You have no idea who will show up at any given feis, you have no idea how hard they've worked, or whether…"
