New ITH Bodice Dresses for my girls...So happy, I finally figured out how to make the ITH bodices in actual sizes...and they have the entire armhole completed with no bias tape that actually fit like they should...Hallelujah! I have made them in the 8x12 hoop in sizes 1 through 7. I hope they like them!

Wonderful! I hadn't seen this before...do you have a website where I could buy this pattern and directions? I do have the 8x12 hoop and the wee ones would love these. Your pics are just so beautiful and I can't imagine how you designed these!

these are amazing! I am fairly new to sewing and embroidering. Does anyone have this pattern that will fit 5 x 7 hoop, would that even fit a one year old? I would pay for pattern. thanks!

Well, just look at your hoop and you'll know it's impossible. You could probably do ITH bodice for a doll. I have 5*7 too and there's a lot of projects that can only be tiny, for example, the baby bibs in one hooping.

dchamberssc by dchamberssc 29 Jan 2014

got a new machine and it has a 6 x 10 hoop, would this work?

Beautifully made and since they are made ITH they are all identical for the girls (well except the different sizes).

Yes..and I did change up the colors on the little one...pink instead of purple...but the beauty of this bodice is that the center design can be changed out for anything you choose...I chose this one because I thought it matched the fabric well.

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 05 Jun 2013

The first ones, the Heirloom dresses, fit okay...the armholes were a bit big, but fortunately not huge..I really like this bodice better because the armholes are completed in the hoop and are no armhole cuts in the skirt and no bias tape to futz with. These also run fairly true to size with any child's dress pattern which is good. Thanks or your comments.

This is my own pattern that I developed to sew out in the hoop...the last one I did had the armholes finished with bias tape in the skirt portion of the dress...this one has the entire armhole finished in the bodice in the hoop...
