I had a great time with Kids Clothes Week last week – 7 days of sewing at least 1 hour a day, and 6 new items of clothing in my son’s winter wardrobe. I’ve tried my best at getting my little man to model all the clothes, but it’s a bit like herding cats with a 16 month old. Here are the best pictures (apologies for lighting/blurriness/not particularly good poses etc):
For Day 7, I made another long-sleeve 90 minute shirt, this time matching the flat-front pants I made earlier in the week.
I decided to try my hand at machine applique while I was at it, with adding some simple squares – it turned out OK for a first attempt, but I think I need a lot more practice!
I think the green-striped pants and matching top look like pyjamas when worn together, so I think he’ll be wearing them with other outfits.
I was also a bit worried that the first two 90-minute shirts were a bit snug around the belly, and over-compensated for the third one. Oh well, I’m sure he’ll grow into it!
Finally, here’s my little man’s “Blue Steel” runway walk – maybe we’ll make a male model out of him yet!
I’ve got a few more clothing projects for my son’s winter wardrobe piled up in my sewing room, but I don’t think I’ll be rushing into it. I’ve got a heap of housework to catch up on! Plus, I’m feeling the pregnancy nesting urge coming on, so there might be a few homey projects on the way!
