Yesterday was day 1 of Kids Clothes Week (KCW). KCW is a challenge to spend 1 hour every day for a week making/sewing clothes for your kids. It was thought up and developed by Meg Freeman, and has become a great resource and inspiration for patterns, ideas, designs, and fun. I participated in the spring and really enjoyed it though I did not post anything about it. This week I am trying a little harder to document what I am doing and will try to post about it.
Last night I decided to make the t-shirt I have been promising Anne for weeks. I already had a pattern I’d drafted from another shirt of hers and I cut out it out of the pale pink organic cotton knit I had in the stash. It took about 1.5 hours from start to finish, but it went by really quickly. I was glad to have finished one garment in one night. Anne was so glad to have her t-shirt. The theme of KCW this time is kid art, so I might see if Anne wants to embellish this tee a little with some other appliqued fabric or ruffles, etc.
Plans for the rest of the week include making t-shirts for Hythe and Steven, sewing some shorts for the girls and maybe a skirt (or a skort!).
**shorts are from Oliver+S Picnic Blouse and Shorts. I made these earlier this year and she loves them.
