Kids Clothes Week Finale

The third installment in my Kids Clothes week is another outfit I made for my daughter using the same MADE pants pattern with pockets, and a blouse from Sew What You Love. I had a great time sewing for my daughter this week. It included such impromptu things as "new gnome slippers" because we lost one of her pointy slippers I made her a year ago. I don't blog about everything I make for her, it would certainly take a great deal of time for me to write about and photograph everything. I enjoyed the chance to take the time to take photos and appreciate my own handiwork. Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to next year's edition of Kids Clothes Week.

Kids Clothes Week Part II

Today, as part of Kids Clothes Week, I decided to give the Elegance & Elephants Fedora a whirl. I received this pattern as part of a bundle, and I couldn't wait to try it. I love making hats for my daughter and this fedora pattern posed a couple of new methods and challenges for me. I have never sewn a hat that uses a twill tape method for binding the inner seam. I will likely make this pattern again in the future with different fabrics.

Check out E&E, the patterns are great. My favorite are the bubble shorts, which I will be making in the sailor style later this week!

Kids Clothes Week - School Clothes!

What great timing for Kids Clothes Week 2014! I am making all of my pre-schooler's clothes this year. The school year starts in September, and I bought a wonderful array of apparel fabric at Island Fabric and Sewing Center this year. The entire collection is based on Tula Pink's Voile with ladybugs. I have had a lot of fun so far and I can't wait to kick off Kids Clothes Week with my first installment in the series. The premise is to sew for your children an hour a day, for an entire week. I should be able to do that easily! And without further ado, here is the Lila Blouse from Sew What you Love by Tanya Whelan.  The pants pattern are flat front Kid's Pants with pockets by MADE. The coordinating headband is self-drafted.

What a fashionable toddler! Come back tomorrow to see what else I have whipped up for her new school year!
