How to sew a bright summer dress for girls “Strawberry ice cream”

Soon, many will go to such a long-awaited vacation! Someone close to the sea, some to the country! And to this wonderful time, of course, we need to thoroughly prepare! We always want that to our girls look the most beautiful and fashionable, and with it, their clothing was easy and convenient, and the tissue from which it was sewn genuine.
I assure you, create, sew the perfect dress their girls to the power of many! And I invite you to a workshop on self-tailoring summer beach dresses for girls of any age! In such a nice light dress can make a leisurely stroll along the sandy beach or go boldly into a small sea voyage on a boat!
And how to spend days of fun at sea under such a bright hot sun without a hat? I propose to make a simple partial scarf with elastic in the kit to our dress.

Let’s get started:
Required Material:
The basic cotton fabric. I chose this merry pretty popular cotton charming Morozhenko.
Fabric companion cotton, for some items and decor of our dress.
Thread cotton fabric tone.
Children’s T-shirt for making patterns.
Elastic narrow 0.5 cm and 1.5 cm wide.
Tape measure.
Sewing machine.
Safety pins.
Tracing paper.
Crayon or marker for the tissue.
Now it is a very fashionable dress with such a romantic flounce at the shoulders. It’s something we are going to sew. Dress, in my opinion, is not difficult, but very interesting and spectacular! Imagine how charmingly will sway in the wind shuttlecock. Also, we will have an asymmetrical bottom and unpretentious ruffles.

1. Construction of a pattern
Since my workshop is intended for all those who are unprofessional sews clothes, I decided to give you not finished the pattern and not the one that will have a long and hard to build, and an option to many easily sewed a dress their baby. So, take the baby t-shirt that sits perfectly on the child (preferably not too tight), folded in half, back inside, draw out a pencil. Note the line of the armhole and neck. We get here a dress before.

Now we pattern. Pattern we will be unified for both forehand and backrest product (of course, to some extent, this is not entirely true, but it is possible, most importantly do not sew the back to back, let it be a little loose, especially since the idea model allows, then armhole not will pull). I traced the side, slightly extending it for the convenience of the child, he said the waistline, neck draw a new line, as we will cut with flounce. Bottom draws a semicircle inside – it before, outside – it will back the product. Cut out the pattern, that’s what happens.

For this the pattern to create basic patterns before and back our future dresses.

2. Cutting (Items proposed in accordance with the size of the child’s growth on 98 cm., Depending on the variation of parts dimensions can be modified).
Prior – 1 pc.
The back – 1 pc.
2 parts of the shuttle base fabric by 70 cm long. And a width of 9 cm.
2 parts of the shuttle companion tissue 70 cm. And a width of 10 cm.
1 part for the lower part before the excised semicircle and a length of 50 cm, a width at its widest point to 8 cm.
2 armholes piping forehand and backrest (cutting obliquely) and a length of 21 cm and a width of 4 cm, including allowances.
Gum for the shuttle, narrow, 60 cm long and gussets, wide and 8-10 cm long.
1 gusset piece for a length of 40 cm, a width of 25 cm (volume 48 cm head).
1 item for registration gum 10 cm long and 4 cm wide.
2 strips 70 cm long and 90 cm wide and 2 cm, for decoration and dresses the bottom gusset.
Sam all the slices and dress hem – 1.0 cm.
Impose our patterns on the fabric is pinned in several places, so as not to move out draw out the pattern, cut out.

3. Tailoring dresses
So, to start all the details. The lower part of the flounces, the lower part of the forehand and the decor strips (for the length of two sides) is treated with role-seam. If you do not have such an opportunity, and bends over the edge.
First of all, I would like to draw the lower part of the prepayment. Take the lower part of the strip and for decoration, these parts on upper edge, namely paving two parallel lines at a low tension of the upper thread, contractible yarns on the lower pulling simultaneously (in this case obtained assembly). Shear and grind 2 parts before. Remove the padded for assembly seams. Allowances press out up, we make fun decorative stripes on the front part, as in the photo, and at its center along the entire length. Remove the padded on the strip for assembly seams. That’s what we do: in front of little shorter dresses back, and this simple effervescent bottom
Now just issue the backrest down, folded the allowance at 1 cm, ironed.

We perform the side seams of our products. Gut-wrenching, iron out the seams

We proceed to the processing of armholes. Every piping folded along the right side out. Folded piping pin and stitch shear armholes. Oversized cut close to the weld line, the piping wrench on the wrong side edges, armhole defer 0.5 cm.

Grind short sections shuttlecocks, their iron out. Impose shuttlecock from the main tissue of a shuttlecock companion tissue. Determine the middle shuttle and before dress pin up to a distance of 1.5 cm from the top to the gum. Grind down, leaving room for threading elastic bands.

Our future shuttlecock. We put the gum, collect and distribute evenly. Zastrachivaem place threading gum. Our dress is ready!

4. Sewing scarves
Take a rectangle of fabric for our scarves, overcast edge. Tuck hem around the perimeter of the inside-out, ironed. Take a decorative strip of cloth, to pin up on the edge of the front face of our scarves.
Take the box to gum, long sections of grind, gut-wrenching, gum paste. We fix and stitched around the edges.

Now we collect our scarf on short sections (I prefer the Christmas tree), by inserting between our gum, and the top anchoring, ie stitched by. Our scarf is ready!

Here’s a set we turned! By the beach season ready! Sea met!

Friends, thank you for your attention!

2 Cool Hairstyles for Little Girls on Any Occasion Step By Step

The classic hairstyle for a holiday is considered to be two high ponytails or braids with white fluffy bows. But now this is not so strict, and you can create many other beautiful hairstyles – all kinds of bundles, braids, weaving and tails .. The hairstyle for any holiday it is recommended to use white or light pastel colors bows and ribbons with a neat styling.

Simple by elegant hairstyle, which can make even the Pope. Suitable for short to medium hair.


Step 1
Make a side parting and braiding little tails on head circumference from the left temple to the right. Tails at the temples are located above and below the sink in the back of the head

Step 2
Now we need to take the tail and screwed it on two fingers, rotate and fix beautiful invisible with white flowers.
Thus we stack all the tails.

And the result is a great hairstyle!
As an option – you can leave your hair loose and curled behind them curling. Or collect in the high tail with a lush white bow.
Hairstyle with ribbons:

To create such hairstyles will need two tapes and a beautiful bow.

Tie a high ponytail and braid plait the usual three strands. We wrap the braid around the base, and fix, the resulting beam pins

Step 2
Take the ribbon and through the same distance from the back of the starting pass through under the strands. It is better to do it with the help of invisible – you need to slip invisible under the hair, catch it and pull the ribbon. Ribbon stretching across the entire circumference of the head around the bundle

Super Easy Hairstyle To Try For Back To School

Braided Back To School hairstyle:

Messy Bun with Knot Headband or any Bow

First pull hair up into a high ponytail.

When tying the ponytail around all the hair the last go round do not pull the hair all the way through. Leave at least a couple inches of “tail.” This will create a bun.

Pull the bun tight by the ponytail.

You can then add your knot headband or you can add your bow to the back of the bun to create a fun hairstyle!

Knot headbands (We also have these in stripes and other prints.)

Hair Bows

Here is one that is fun but takes a little more time.. 🙂

Braided Pigtails with Bows

First, you will create two even sections for your pigtails. Once hair is parted all the way down the middle you will want to clip one side out of the way.

Step 2: Take the top half inch section of the first section of hair from the part to begin the braid. Now divide that section into three parts to start your braid. **Create fists with hair in each hand.Make sure your pinkies are touching her head. By keeping your hands close to her head makes for a tighter braid.

Drop the middle piece of hair and bring it toward the front. Grab a small section of loose hair to draw into the braid with the piece of dropped hair.

Pick up that hair with the hand closest to the forehead. You should have three pieces in your hands again.

Now drop the current middle piece again and grab a small section of loose hair to draw in with the dropped piece. Pick up the hair using the fist toward the back of the head.

Repeat those steps until your braid reaches the bottom of her hairline on her neck.

Once you reach the bottom of her hairline, continue with a normal braid for an inch, and then band it. This will help keep the braid tight without creating tight pulls in the braid that will yank her scalp.

You can then leave the remainder of her hair loose in a ponytail (like pictured) or braid until the end of her hair.

Now follow these steps for her other braided pigtail.

After finishing both pigtails you can easily slide a bow with an alligator clip in right above her elastic hair tie.

Fun & Games Activities for Helping Kids with Dyslexia

People with dyslexia see the world differently! Many are visual thinkers (rather than verbal thinkers – like 90% of the population). Visual thinkers can be creative and amazingly innovative. Their strengths are in the area of the brain used for creativity and art, puzzles and innovation. Unfortunately, research has shown that dyslexics who use the part of the brain normally used for reading struggle with reading. Research also shows that dyslexics who become fluent readers use a different part of the brain for reading. The good news is that the creative, artistic, part of the brain can be trained to take over the task of reading!

We know that dyslexic learners have a knack for figuring out these puzzles because of their visual thinking talents. The Puzzle Games activate the right brain and over time the games begin to introduce symbols, letters and numbers – as part of the art! The art and puzzles gradually transform into reading activities and over the course of 2 to 3 months, depending on the pace of the student, the creative, artistic area of the brain takes over the job of reading!

Did you know that Dyslexics are brilliant and many will learn to read, with or without therapy? The natural process can take years! Dyslexia Games accelerates this process, empowering the student to overcome symptoms of dyslexia in a few months, not a few years! This is wonderful for a child’s self-confidence!

Question and Answer Time!
Q. What is the best time is to train the dyslexic mind to overcome reading, writing and spelling problems?
A. During times of low stress, like when the child has a nice long break from all other school related studies.
Q. What are the two times each year when we have this chance to help our kids take the biggest jump out of the foggy zone we call “reading confusion”?
A. Christmas Vacation and Summer Vacation!

These Games are the simplest, fastest, (and most affordable!) way to help your child to naturally overcome symptoms of Dyslexia, including letter reversals, poor spelling, messy handwriting, concentration problems, and reading confusion. This is wonderful for a child’s self-confidence!
