I am participating in Kids Clothes Week Challenge! This should be fun. So far, I've made two pairs of knit pants for Hana from two t-shirts which I don't wear anymore. I used a pair of existing pants as the pattern, and I'm happy to report that they turned out well. I'll post pictures later this week.
I've cut out two new patterns from Oliver + S: the Ice Cream Dress and the Jump Rope Dress. I really enjoyed sewing the Birthday Party Dress for Hana over the winter, so I'm looking forward to these projects. Whenever I've used an Oliver + S pattern, I learn a new technique or tip. Did you know that I have a jig that I dance whenever I learn something new? It's called "The I Learned Something New Today Dance" and I sing the title to the tune of Camptown Races complete with "Doo dah! Doo dah!" Some of you may have been lucky enough (!) to have witnessed this. ;-)
Any way, here's the list for the Challenge:
* knit gauchos/pants for Hana
* the Ice Cream Dress for Hana
* the Jump Rope Dress for Hana
* pj pants for Koji (two pair if I can find "acceptable" prints in flannel ~ he's a teenager ~ tough
* a slip for Hana (if time allows)
All this thinking about sewing has really got me itching to sew for myself, but I'm going to try to focus on the kids stuff this week!
Are you sewing along? What are you making?
