Making Play Clothes: KCW Project # 3 and 4

 I almost didn’t participate in Kids Clothing week because I didn’t think Genevieve needed any new clothes, but I took an inventory of her wardrobe and realized that yes, she was lacking a few things:
Comfy play clothes.
Sure I could just go to the store and buy some because these types of things, i.e., leggings, t shirts, etc. are generally inexpensive….
But I can’t stand shopping for clothes anymore, since I started making most of our own!

I made the top by tracing the bodice of a knit dress pattern we already had and cutting up the pattern for color blocking. the pants I made from a trouser pattern I made from my book, metric pattern Cutting. i traced the trouser pattern and created a knicker style. The fabric I bought in Tokyo last year.

    I feel the same way about shopping for clothes. I used to just sew clothes for the kids on special occasions, but since I’ve learned how to sew with knits I have been making more of there every day clothing.I find myself looking at clothes in the store and thinking of how I could make it at home rather than buy it.

      I always do the same thing. I have a hard time spending 10 dollars on a pair of leggings.

    That’s gorgeous, the fabric is so cute! I don’t sew anything for my girls, we’ve had a lot of stuff given second hand (+ my girls are the only grandchildren on my side)…

    Adorable! She looks comfy and carefree. I have trouble shopping for clothes too. I don’t think I’ve bought a new outfit for a few years. I also have to say that I have a serious case of landscape envy right now. Ahh!
