KCW 2014 - Something Old, Something New

Monday, January 27, 2014

I did most of my sewing for day one of this Kid's Clothes Week on Sunday.  That's reality - there's not enough hours in the weekdays for me to even sew for one hour.  My KCW will be done mainly on the weekend, and all day Wednesday.  I bet I get a lot more than 7 hours in!

For my first outfit, I went with an oldie, but goodie - the Class Picnic blouse from Oliver and S.  I've made it a bunch of times, including modifying it to be a dress.  My daughter is in the size 4 in this, but lengthened about 3 inches.

It's a pattern that just doesn't disappoint.  I don't even need to look at the directions at this point.  The fabric is a cotton from Yuwa from my shop - Owls by Marie Jacobi.  It's a really cute subdued print  - some of the owls are even sparkly....

Next up, I FINALLY purchased the Kids Shorts Pattern by Made on danamadeit.com - seriously, why did I wait?  I've had this bookmarked for a while, and just never made the purchase.  I probably have other patterns that I could easily just convert to shorts, but why do that when these are already drafted and sized for you?  These have SO many options - I'll definitely be getting my money out of these!  Based on the measurements, I made a 5 in these.  Seriously, a 5???!!!  Where is my baby going???? Granted, these will be worn for quite a while - they've certainly got room to grow into!

Who needs some serious lotion????

These are made in some orange 21 wale corduroy by Moda, with some leftover turquoise linen.  Super cute, and she loves the pockets!

This is how I roll - this is all I had left of the turquoise thread that I used for the shorts when I was done!!

 End of the KCW Day 1 sewing.....my next project should be finished up on Wednesday - I can't wait to share this one!
