This is such a fun idea, i have never stitched anything in this way but am so looking forward to trying.
I have never used elastic in my bobbin before, that makes me a little nervous!! And maybe one for my 10 year old daughter too! Can you tell me what size towel you would start with for a 2-year old? Her chest is 20 inches. I just hot some thin towel, and 3 spool of elastic threads.. I am gonna try it this evening… Wish me luck with my brother sewing machine! You are very intelligent. You realize therefore significantly with regards to this subject, produced me individually imagine it from a lot of varied angles.
Its like men and women are not involved unless it is something to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. All the time maintain it up! I bought 2 spools at the fabric store, They only had the small spools.
Do you think that would be enough for 32 lines of stitching. Do I stitch it horizontally? What can I use for straps?
On sewing the elastic, those rows are horizontal. You can always watch a demo of this on youtube for the Sunny Days tank I have made this tank top. This is such a fun idea, i have never stitched anything in this way but am so looking forward to trying. Ok, new to sewing, so shiring is just sewing straight line after straight line horizontally across top of towel around 32 or so times? Then after you sew side seam? What did u use for shoulder straps and add those after finished?

I am going to have to add them to my ever growing list of sewing inspiration and projects. I think I used the same polkadot towel for my beach robes. Found you on pinterest. Love these, so adorable!! Wandered if you could give me measurements and to what age these were for?
Maybe I can figure out the rest for different sizing for different ages lol.. Sorry, I have no idea what measurements they were, but a great way to measure the width is to have your subject put their arms down against their sides, then measure the circumference around their belly, including the arms. The length is totally up to you, but I suggest ending the dress including the ruffle just below the knee. Just wanted to let you know that I featured this on my blog today. I would love it if you could check it out and grab my button: I would like to know the dimentions of the towels to make the cover up.
I was thinking about making it for my daughters birthday or christmas. If you wouldnt email me back. Do you have a template or layout sample to cut towels for these and did you use a towel for each one made? I left a request for a sample layout or template. My email is kellyra65 gmail.
