Thursday, March 27th, 2014
D-ring belts for girlsIt’s already pretty fun to imagine and create sweet outfits for little girls. Instill in your daughter a sense of fashion early by having some fun with outfits and toddler accessories for girls that will make both you and her excited to go out and meet up with friends and family. With spring approaching, here are a few ideas for adorable outfits that still have some warmer pieces as winter transitions into spring. A belt can help tie an outfit together – both for you and for your daughter. Adapt these ideas to her wardrobe, or pick up a few new pieces that suit your taste.

Lovely Lace



Lace dresses are on trend right now, and they are oh-so adorable on little girls. Available in a variety of colors, they are a fantastic foundation to our D-Ring belts. If you want a classic look, pair a lace dress with our Brown D-Ring Belt, and add a sweater in a spring color, such as light blue, pink, or green. If you’d like to do something a little more edgy in toddler girls’ belts, our Hip Leopard D-Ring Belt is an adorable fashion statement that would add a bit of interest to a lace dress.

Spring Jumpsuit



D-ring belt for girlsJumpsuits are a great spring option, because they can be short without the danger of your little girl lifting her skirt too much in public. They are a step above most two-piece outfits, but still casual enough for her to run and play. Choose an adorable, stylish print such as blue, purple, or red gingham, or a popular but versatile color such as chambray. Toddler belts for girls are a great addition on a jumpsuit, giving it a needed finishing touch. Our Khaki D-Ring Belt is a nice neutral to go with a printed jumpsuit.

Tailored Jacket



Tailored jackets work on both boys and girls, and belts for kids are a great finishing touch. For girls, choose jackets with a lot of personality, in beautiful prints, or made out of fun colors. Any of our D-Ring belts would work well with a tailored jacket, and they’re easy to take off and put on. Tailored jackets are adorable with tutu-style skirts and sparkly shoes for a whimsical look, or pants, dress shoes, and a sweet hat for a more classic look.

Pillowcase Dress: Oh-so Cute and Easy Children’s Dress

Monday, March 24th, 2014
Pillowcase DressYour linen closet may already contain some great options for creating an adorable pillowcase dress for a young girl. It’s a great use for that random pillow case you have that doesn’t have a matching sheet set anymore, or for the fantastic vintage and handmade pillow cases passed down from your grandmother or found at a local antique store. Beautiful embroidery, bold colors, and interesting designs all make pillow case dresses as lovely as they are easy. Once you’ve made it, accessorize with toddler belts for girls to add some style and make the dress less blousy. Even if you haven’t had much experience with sewing, a pillowcase dress is a great project. You can sew it by hand – it’s just straight lines – but it will take a bit longer than sewing with a machine. Here are a few easy steps for creating a pillowcase dress:

Measuring and Cutting Your Dress



Choose a pillowcase you love, and measure it up against your child to ensure it’s the correct length. Measure your child from the top of her shoulder to the length of the hem you’d like, and add an inch, so you’ll have some extra fabric for sewing a loop at the top. You may want to add another half inch of length, because a toddler girls belt may pull the hemline up a little higher. The closed end of the pillowcase is the top of the dress, and the open end is the hemline. Once you have determined the length you need, mark it on the pillowcase, and cut off the excess at the top. Make sure you are cutting off the closed ends. You will be left with two open ends sewn together at the sides, like a fabric cylinder.

Cutting the Arm Holes



Pillowcase DressLay the fabric flat, with the seams at the sides. Smooth out any wrinkles, being sure the pillowcase is sharply folded at the side seams. If necessary, go over the sides with a hot iron. It’s important that the seams are exactly at the sides, so you can cut symmetrical arm holes. Fold the pillow case down the middle vertically, so the seam sides meet up. Use dressmakers chalk to mark a “J” shape toward the upper corner. It should be about 3.75” long and 1.5” wide for an 18-month-old to 2T, 6” long and 3” wide for an older child. Make sure seam sides are still even, and cut the “J out of all four layers of fabric. You are cutting both arm holes at once, to ensure they are symmetrical.

Finishing



Finishing is simple – you just need to finish off the raw edges and add a ribbon closure at the top. First finish the armholes by folding the fabric over ½”, and place a piece of bias tape over the fold, on the inside of the dress. Sew the bias tape in place, clipping the excess when you get to the edge of the fabric. The bias tape will give the arm holds some durability and shape. Repeat for the other arm hole. When you finish with that, fold the top neckline of the dress and the back part under twice, at ½” for each fold. Sew the bottom edge of the fold, creating a tunnel for a ribbon to go through. String a ribbon through the tunnel at both the front and the back, and tie at the shoulders. Add your favorite toddler accessories for girls, including a belt, for a sweet little outfit.
