Garments of Kids Clothes Weeks’ Past

It’s like the ghosts of Christmas past, except not really. Anyway…since it always takes longer to sew and blog about something than just to sew it, I’m going to preview this Kid’s Clothes Week with some garments I’ve sewn up in previous seasons. And here’s to hoping I’m able to make and blog throughout the week!

Fall 2014 {Theme: Storybook}

My kids needed clothes during this KCW, so I didn’t follow the theme. I had big plans for this week and didn’t achieve all of them, but I did make 2 pairs of pants and 1 top for Carpenter, and 1 top for River.

Winter 2015 {Theme: Upcycle}

I was so excited about this theme, I could hardly handle it…and then I got carpal tunnel half-way through the week. I was still able to muscle out 3 shirts for Carpenter and some footed pants for Lioness though.KCWPast-6

Raw-Edged Raglan from Sewing for Boys: 24 Projects to Create a Handmade Wardrobe*.  Fabric was a white t-shirt and a pink Target jersey sheet.

KCWPast-4

Snap Button v-neck (without the snaps, ha) from Ottobre 1/2013. Fabric from a men’s XL shirt and teal jersey scrap.

Another Raw-Edged Raglan from Sewing for Boys: 24 Projects to Create a Handmade Wardrobe.*  Fabric upcycled from two Old Navy shirts.

As you can see, I’m a bit in love with the Sewing for Boys book and Ottobre too. In the coming months I’m going to share with you about how I chose and what matters to me when it comes to patterns.

Now, here’s to a productive Kid’s Clothes Week!
