Kids Clothes Week Challenge!

It’s Kids Clothes Week again, and I got off to a terrific start yesterday:


and also:


which is totally reversible:


(It still needs some sort of closure. I just have to lug the snap press downstairs.)

(Also, I need to iron it. Shhh.)

These patterns are both from Leila & Ben. Above is the Sweet Little Dress, made from an old cowboy-style shirt of mine. I kept the original hem, so it’s kinda womlu, and I think I need to add some sew-in snaps to keep it closed better (or possibly just sew up the front), but it’s adorable and fits her perfectly. Below that is the Unisex Vest, which I made in Sam’s size.

But wait, there’s more! I also sewed Grace another dress, which also just needs snaps, but I ran out of light to take a photo and wasn’t home at all today. AND I cut out the sweetest little smock for her from green bird fabric that makes me swoon. I bought bias tape for it today and will sew it up tonight or in the morning. Probably morning, as the light here sucks once the sun goes down.

I feel so productive!
