Jeans and cardigan

It’s Kids Clothes Week Fall 2013!

Today I’d like to share some clothing I made the past few days for my son. I purchased the SewFab pdf sewing pattern bundle last month (the sale is closed now) and have been trying to make new fall/winter clothing out of the pattern bundle.

This is the Greenpoint cardigan by Hey June. The sizing of the pattern seems running a little big and long, so I went one size down. It came out great, fits my son just fine.


The fabric is Michael Miller cotton interlock knit. Nice stretch and recovery. I like their cotton knit very much.


This is the Skinny Jeans by Peek-a-Boo pattern shop. She makes lots of kids sewing patterns and I finally get the chance to try one. (yes my first peek-a-boo pattern) And I love it! The pattern is written with detailed sewing steps as well as lots of pictures, and most of all it fits my son nicely.

DSC_0029I like all the double topstitching details. And I like that it’s elastic waistband, it’s easier for little kids.

DSC_0034I used stretch chintz denim fabric that I got last year from I didn’t know anything about chintz when I bought it. The description said it’s 100% cotton and machine washable. When I received the fabric and saw the “glazed” effect of the chintz I was almost going to return it. (I thought it might ruin my washing machine if I did wash it) After talking with customer service I felt better and prewashed it and it looks nice and soft.  I’m glad that I bought this fabric, it looks great!


DSC_0031Because I like this pattern so much I made another pair of jeans- with denim fabric by Robert Kauman. It’s a 6.5 oz denim, a little too soft in my opinion. Maybe an 8 oz denim will be better.

DSC_0041I added Mickey and Minnie embroidery on the back pockets.


And a snowflake button~


Hope I have time to upload some more clothing I made this week. Have a great day!

      Thank you!
      I use Gutermann Mara 70, I think it’s for topstitching/button hole. 🙂
