My favorite time of year in the virtual sewing world is Kids Clothes Week. It’s a week of inspiration and motivation to build my kids wardrobes.
This KCW I’ll be out of the country and so sad to not be sewing along with everyone. Before I left, I couldn’t help myself and whipped up a few things for Charlie.
He asked me the other day to please make him something so he could have a photo shoot. I was flattered until I realized he was in it for the prize I give the kids when they ‘model’ for me. I sewed up a couple of Recess Raglan‘s and two pair of Mini Hudson’s.
I’d been crushing big time on this darling Birch knit from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. It is so soft and lovely and I’m kinda jealous of this shirt.
I made up a second raglan, this time using this solid white and the Club diamonds. We are loving Where the Wild Things Are and this vinyl from Sew Fancy iron-on vinyl is just darling!
This boy is all about comfy pants so Mini Hudson Pants are so perfect for him. A little more stylish than his running pants but still so cozy, especially out of french terry.
He got one pair out of light grey french terry with charcoal accents and a second all charcoal pair. On the darker pair I added moto-inspired knee patches and I really, really like the look.
He also got a cheater tee made from an Old Navy raglan with another cute vinyl added.
Anyone who has ever attempted to photograph a 3-year-old know just how many pictures were taken to get these that were semi-blog worthy. He’s such a busy guy!
Are you joining in on Kids Clothes Week? I wish I was sewing along with everyone but I’m off enjoying the adventure of a lifetime.
