KCW – May 2016 – Day 5

Day 5 Pattern: Bow Back Beauty Size: 2 Fabric: cotton lycra Today’s sew was a winter bow back beauty for Portia, I realised that she had grown out of her test one, and doesn’t have many long sleeve dresses.  actually this will bring it to two! I also realized that my phone does not take very good moving photos and with a very active nearly 4 year old that is a must…time to get a good new camera I think. […]

KCW – May 2016 – Day 2

Day 2 and I’m off to a good start…well I thought I was, I somehow managed to delete almost all of my photos from today’s wee shoot.  As I was uploading to dropbox I thought I’d delete from my camera, not realising that duh I needed to wait till they had finished uploading…well anyway I managed to save 17 of which you see a little collection now.  the rest were all too fuzzy. Portia is really becoming harder to photograph. […]

Kids Clothes Week Day 3 – Every day party dress for Portia

Day 3 Pattern: The Party Dress I’m designing at the moment Size: 18month with knee length skirt, Fabric: quilting cotton from my stash, buttons from my stash. So as you know, my tutorials have photos scattered through the instructions, and the only way of getting these is for me to make an item in each of the options!!! and take photos along the way.  this usually means that my children end up with multiple items when I’m designing a new […]

Kids Clothes Week Day 2 – Harem Shorts

  Day 2 was a bit of a fail, I sewed these in the evening hence no modeled photos. Day 2 Pattern: Peekaboopocket pants Size: 18m Fabric: nursery knit and ribbing from my stash, a little piece of batik dyed woven and a transfer. I love this pattern, it is my staple for my kids when they are in nappies, and all so past nappies, though my husband doesn’t want me to make them for Elijah or Brylie as they […]

KCW – June 2015 – Day 3

  So today I consciously decided to make my KCW item, I have had some denim wrap skirts sitting in my “to make into something else” pile for a heck of a long time and this new pattern (new as in its pretty much still in my head) was perfect for them.  It is a light weight denim with no stretch which makes it perfect for this simple little girls skirt. Day 3 Pattern: skirt in the design process Size […]

Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 6 ~ Bunny Leggings

Day 6 has come around and today I made Portia a pair of bunny leggings using my skinny legs pattern.  Portia still fits the size 12 months size (even though she turns 3 in 7 weeks and 1 day) and for the length I cut at mid way between the 3/4 length and full length as her inseam is 28cm.  See the chart is for a 31cm inseam so taking off those extra cms makes them fit perfectly. Cutting and sewing time […]

{Kids Clothes Week} Day 4

Day 4 I really don’t know if I will ever catch up…I wonder if I can cheat and call these day 4 and 5, as there are 2 pairs! These are my kiwiana undies pattern for Portia (lucky girl is getting all the goods this season) I made her the size 47cm hip size, a perfect fit. I used two little size 1 sundresses which were the same pattern but a different colour way. The crotch is nice and thick […]

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 5 – White top for Portia

Today I’ve just done a quick simple top.  I’ve got family up fro the weekend so sewing time is scarce. For this little white top I used my Rock Star Raglan t-shirt pattern but didn’t do the side panels. Portia needed another white top to wear under dresses, or by itself so I dug through my stash and found some white cotton lycra which was perfect.  Peek – a – BOO!!  It is easy to transform the rock star raglan […]
