Kids Clothes Week Part Two


Another Kids Clothes Week has come and gone-phew!


I finished the weekend off with a few quick sews.

The weather is warming up so I wanted to add to my girl’s spring wardrobes with some comfy french terry Mini Hudsons.


My french terry is from Raspberry Creek Fabrics (it’s currently out of stock but new french terry arrives almost weekly!).


I did the pink pair calf length and the purple pair I cropped a couple inches higher to be bermuda length.


I think they’ll be perfect for playing come spring and summer.


I squeezed in one more Pistachio Tee from Sew Like My Mom.


I did an elbow sleeve hack with a peplum skirt.


The floral fabric was from Hancock’s ages ago and the stripe is from a Girl Charlee knitfix about a year ago.  They had little stretch but worked great for this semi-fitted tee.


She loves a good peplum so much!!


I’m kicking myself for not sewing this pattern sooner.  It just has so many options and is perfect for all my littles.


To finish things up, I finally sewed up the stack of undies waiting for Charlie.  I use Mo’s Comfy Fit Unders.  They are made for children with sensory issues which makes them super comfortable for all kids.  The coverage is great and they totally stay put!  I love to cut them out from scraps and sew them up in between projects.


I’ll leave you with this super cool pic my hubby edited.  He’s always been the photographer in the family and I’m slowly trying to learn everything I can from him.  He loves a good artsy edit and it’s always fun when I find a gem like this that he’s been playing with.

I hope your KCW was a fun and productive one!  Anyone else ready for a break?! I think I better clean my house now 😉

Kids Clothes Week Part One


It’s that time of year again… Kids Clothes Week.  A week of devoting one hour a day to sewing for your kiddos.  And yes, around here every week is kids clothes week.


But for this one week it’s great to know that you’re sewing along with other moms all around the world.


I’ve been busy this week with more pattern tests that I’ll share with you next week.  I did get in a few quick sews that I’ve been dying to try.


First up is the Pistachio Tee by Sew Like My Mom.  This pattern has so, so many fun options and it’s been on my to-sew list since it came out.

I did a simple short sleeve version and used this fab Superhero fabric my cute sister sent to me.  There are options in the pattern for long sleeves, multiple elbow patches, colorblocking, and a cute peplum.


This little guy was under the weather and did NOT want his picture taken.  This picture just cracks me up!!


Big sis has been wanting to recreate her favorite ready-to-wear dolman top.  The La Bella Top (affl. link) from Love Notions was absolutely perfect for it.

Her first version we did a simple three quarter sleeve top version and doubled the bottom band width.  It’s exactly what she was hoping for and just had to wear it that night to a family gathering.


I love this girl’s style and her fabric choices and accessories!  Totally how I’d wear it!


On her second version we used Raspberry Creek Fabrics Navy Club dots to compliment a jersey knit from RCF also.

I love this version so much!  It’s so fun and casual.


I’m hoping to knock out a couple more things before the week ends. Any excuse to sew, right?!  Are you sewing along?
