Kids Clothes Week days 3-4 - Hummingbird Dress

Saturday, July 26, 2014

So going into day 3 of Kids Clothes week, I kind of fell into a funk.  I own a million patterns but none of them were really grabbing me.  So I went on looked around on etsy and ended up buying the Hummingbird dress pattern from Rabbit Rabbit Creation.  Its a really simple stylish dress.

Kids Clothes Week Day 1 (and 2) - Fawn Lily Tunic and a giveaway!!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

So I started off KCW with big plans.  So far I have just gotten this Fawn Lily Tunic done for my girl. The pattern is by Willow and Co. and you can get it here.  It's really a great pattern.  I anticipated it being more difficult than it was.  I mostly finished this on day 1.  Day 2 of KCW was kind of a wash, my husband was off of work for the first time in 9 days so we were outside mostly with our daughter in the kiddie pool.  I did print off some more patterns and will spend today taping and tracing and cutting.

Juba Shorts

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

So I few weeks ago I got the privilege of testing out a new pattern by Rachael Gander of Imagine Gnats.  The pattern is the Juba Shorts.  They are a comfy lounge short.  Please excuse the awkward photos and my tiny photo bomber.

Bohemian Babydoll Top

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I recently made this sweet little top for my daughter.  The pattern is the Bohemian Babydoll dress and top by Elegance and Elephants.  I chose the lovely border print from the wee wander line by Sarah Jane.  I really really love how this turned out.  I made a few changes as this was the second one I made.  Nothing too drastic.  I put a narrow hem on the sleeve rather than using the two layers of fabric as the pattern calls for.  I prefer the lightness that the one layer gives especially in the summer heat.  I also finished the armholes using this technique.  A little fiddly but i prefer this to the way the pattern calls for it to be finished.
