ok, so after lurking this site for a little bit, you guys have inspired me to attempt to make some chi clothes for myself,

here is the dress i made layla, out of an old cardigan sleeve, and some old panties i saw at some little shop and thought it would make a perfect little skirt;












front of the shirt after i sewed some pearls to it;


and a shirt i made for riley, out of one of my sisters old plaid shirt sleeves;


and last but not least, a shirt i made for layla out of a sleeve and some shiny stud things;




im actually pretty happy with how they came out! i think laylas dress is my fav. im going to have her wear it every day!

thanks guys! surprisingly enough it actually wasnt that hard, i just cut off a piece of a old sweater/cardigan and cut two little holes for her arms, then i took a pair of these rufflely panties i found at the store and cut the butt part out and measured it to laylas fat little body and the sewed it to the sleeve, and WAH LA!

Oh, I was just thinking today that I needed to get the sewing machine out and make some clothes for my babies!

What a wonderful job you have done! I absolutely love the first dress...It would be so cute on my Gracie, and I'm sure my husband would love walking her in it!!!

I love those! I really want to make clothes for the puppies but I can't sew at all. Did you see my tiny hoodie? ROFL! The dress is adorable! (and so is the puppy!)

I wish i could sew, i love their outfits. I can knit and crochet but put me in front of a sewing machine and my brain turns to mush. I will have to have another try in the summer when the orders for winter chi hats and jumpers have slowed down. I keep looking at all the lovely outfits you clever sewers come up with and i am quite jelous.
