KCW – May 2016 – Day 3

Day 3 Pattern: My new pattern that will be FREE Size: 6 width with 7 length Fabric: stash that was some unknown knit I was gifted. Its getting cooler in New Zealand and Brylie is growing like a WEED, I discovered that she is growing out of all her pants and so this is what has prompted my newest pattern. A bootleg pant that fits like a looser legging at the top with a flare at the bottom.  They are uber […]

Day 4 Pattern: skirt in the design process (take 2) Size 7 for Brylie Fabric: random pieces of wale cord in my stash and home made bias binding.

Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 7 ~ Zebra BBB

Well I’ve reach the end of the KCW season. Yay, after a slow start I caught up quickly and even made some within the theme.  Especially todays one.   I think this may be my favourite item from the week, though the horse hi-low comes in close second. The pattern I used was my Bow Back Beauty, and I made Brylie the size 6 width with a 7 length as she’s thin and tall. I used pink cotton Lycra from Levana and the zebras […]

Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 4 ~ Hi-low Horses

While planning (using this word very loosely here!) what I was going to make for KCW this season, I discovered that Brylie lacks long sleeved t-shirts, well she has a few, but they are getting a wee bit short in the arms and body, ok, ok, they are just too small all together.  So L/S t-shirts are on my list to make Brylie this Kids Clothes Week. Today I made a hi-low long sleeve t-shirt using my very versatile pattern the […]

KCW – Day 7 – Matching Leggings

And day 7 is yet more leggings. (I’m so sorry if you are sick of seeing leggings by now) Size: 12m for Portia and 4 width with 6 length for Brylie Fabric: Scuba knit I had left over fabric from Alyssa’s leggings and so I made Portia 2 pairs (long and short) and Brylie pair (long) One way to get Portia to co-operate during a ‘shoot’ is to get her to do peek-a-boo so you will usually see a shot […]

KCW DAY 1 & 2

So I haven’t been so on the ball for this Kids Clothes Weeks, and am already running behind.  Here are my day 1 and 2 items.  I’m working on a legging pattern at the moment so quite a lot of what I’m sewing is related to that.  I’ll tell you that day 3 is also leggings, but another version… The first pair I made, I made for Brylie.  She is a very tall and skinny 6 year old and so […]
