Kids Clothing Week Challenge
Is anyone else participating in The Kids Clothing Week Challenge over on elsiemarley.com? I just discovered this and plan to join in.
On Elsie's post she asks why people do so much sewing in the spring but not the fall. As I started searching for patterns I realized why. It's so dang easy to make spring/summer clothing! And there aren't a lot of patterns for the fall. The other issue I have is that I don't put a lot of dresses on Samantha. They aren't very practical for day to day playing. And of course most of the patterns are dresses.
The first thing I will be making is pattern "A" from this NewLook pattern. Yup, it's a dress, but so cute I couldn't resist. Note that this pattern is "easy". Those are the only ones that I will do!
I found this corduroy fabric to make it with (yes, I'm still obsessed with brown and pink).
I also found this adorable stretch knit covered with owls. I think I have a top pattern already that would work with it. But I'm nervous because I've never worked with stretch knit before!
Either way, it should be fun. Join in if you can!
On a separate note, as I was offloading these pictures from the camera I found that my husband took this photo this morning while I was in the shower.
