kids clothes week: another cardigan and some skirts

10.13.2011

Jumping into Kids Clothes Week Challenge with Elsie Marley, you're doing it, right?

Hope it doesn't bore you, but I had made another version of my bias trimmed cardigan tutorial for Natalie.  I desperately wanted to use this little tiny floral trim I had swapped with Adrianne of Crafterhours.  It was perfect, who doesn't love pre-made bias tape?!  I'll take it!


This was actually the first cardigan I made, so it's a smidge different than the tutorial - just added pleats to the tops of the shoulders because I had cut it way too big.


The other things I made, did you notice?  The little shot cotton skirts (even though it looks like chambray) to go with their cardigans.  It was last minute, but then, a simple gathered skirt doesn't take any time at all, maybe I'll go through my whole fabric stash and make a million skirts, maybe not.  Anywho, I whipped them up as quick as I could.  Came in pretty handy that I had finally written the girls' measurements down using this Child Measurement Chart from Owly Baby.


I added a couple little pintucks at the bottom of Natalie's skirt, I think they're divine.

[thought I should throw this in here again just so you don't have to go back and look at their skirts together from the last post]

Hope to get at least one more project done for KCWC!  I'd better hop to it!

  2. I love the pintucks! One day I will learn how to do them. I missed the start of kcwc but have sewn up a little coat for Ansley's friend and cut out a pattern for another coat for another one of her friends. :)
