This past week is the Kids Clothes Week- Spring 2013!! (today is the last day to upload pictures to their flickr group) Were you there too? I just uploaded mine this morning and found there’re so many cute and fun inspirations!
For this past week, I mainly focused on sewing for girls/baby girls. I started drafting patterns for girl clothing a while ago and have been testing and revising, so you guess it.., I have a couple of work-in-progress projects to be finished. Thanks to Kids Clothes Week, I pushed myself to at least get these done!
A double layer ruffle dress, size 9 ~12 month. I love the pattern and color tone of this madras cotton fabric, so vivid and cute. The lining is cotton broadcloth.
I like this button I got from Fabric Mart.
A tunic (also in size 9 ~ 12 month), made with one of my favorite fabrics! The strawberry print fabric is from Kitchen collection by Michael Miller fabrics.
A skirt in size 5T. My friend saw the strawberry baby tunic (above) and asked if I can make a strawberry skirt for her preschooler daughter.
A round collar tunic, in size 9 ~ 12 month. The fabric is from Cocoon collection by Valori Wells for Free Spirit fabrics. I still not quite get the round collar right,, it’s a little tricky to finish the collar facing. I need to study more about this.
The inside finish of the tunic. Recently I started to use Seam Binding to finish some of the seams (the pink side seams in the picture) of the clothing I made and have been in love with how it looks.
A baby bloomer in size 3~6 month. I used this tutorial on Fishsticks Design and enlarged the pattern. The fabric is by Anna Maria Horner. She is one of my favorite designers!
A tunic/dress with shoulder ties for 9 ~ 12 month. I made it reversible.
These clothing are all for my good friends’ new babies and big girls. Some of them we haven’t seen each other for a couple of years! I’m planning to visit them this summer…. excited 🙂
