Pattern: New LKC pattern (just about to go into testing)
Sizes: 18 months for Portia and a 5 width with 8 length for Brylie (she really must stop growing)
Fabric: from my stash.
So Kids clothes week has crept up on me once again, and I’m really excited to sew some summer clothing for my kids. The girls both need some nice church dresses as well as some simple summer beach ones. Elijah really does need some new shorts, poor boy is still wearing ones I made him over 2 years ago!!
So to start with I thought I’d share these two I made (I didn’t make them today but I finished them two days ago so I thought I’d share them anyway as they are just so gorgeous.
The pattern is the latest that I’ve been designing, its a party dress with many options (as usual)
the fabric I was given by my husband’s Aunty and amazingly I had enough to make both the girls dresses from it.
I sewed puff sleeves for the girls as our sun in New Zealand can be really hot and burns, but also because it just give such a classic look to the dress. This photo is also my attempt to make these dresses fit the theme (I never fit the theme) the girls are blending in with the flowers!!!!
I also did the pleated skirt, which is such a different look to a gather skirt, I really like the simplicity of it.
I just had to include some of the funny faces Portia was pulling. She is such a character.
The whole dress is fully lined (except the skirt) but I did a woopsie when I was sewing the button holes and put them on the wrong side!! ah well. it still looks lovely.
