Piggy pics

By Tara Zandra | May 4, 2008

I finished the applique on the tank top today :) I still want to embellish capris and we’re waiting on accessories I ordered from ebay, but since it is a complete top and bottom, I thought I’d share pictures.



The twirl factor! It can do a full horizontal twirl, but then her undies show, lol.


These last three are Tabitha being herself. I simple did as I was told and took the pictures.




I’m really pleased with how it came out. I want to do something similar for Daisy with pandas, frogs or monkeys. Although, as soon as I said I had finished this, Daisy immediately said I could sew her cow outfit now, lol.

    Wow. Seriously, that is awesome. And did you do knife pleats for the bottom 2 ruffles?? Or is it just the pink ruffle that’s pleated? That is some serious work you put into this skirt! And you say you are *just* a beginner!? Psshaw! I’ve never done pleats (and I don’t wanna!) so I commend you on a job super, super well done. I hope you are very proud of yourself. And Tabitha is a ham. (ham! ha!) She reminds me of Madeline, that girl can not pose in any way resembling ‘normal’. LOL

    Oh! I made a dress for Elaina today. Started and finished it in one day. I hope it fits her. Super easy pattern, you should look into it for Daisy. No buttons, no zippers, no snaps, no elastics, no hook/eyes. Uh, ya, I think you get the idea. Super easy. I made it a bit different than what the pattern calls for but it’s such a simple dress, it is easy to customize. And if I didn’t screw up so much(by not paying attention), I would have shaved a couple hours off my time. Just a tip, for future projects- reading instructions CAREFULLY the first time saves you a LOT of time and trouble!!! :D

    Sorry to hijack your comments. LOL
    I do look forward to seeing the next thing that you make. :)

    Makes me want to sew something similar for my granddaughter. Cute as can be.

    By the way, the filming for High School Musical 3 has started at one of our local high schools (the same one used for 1 & 2). I can’t remember, is Tabitha into HSM?
