i had signed up to do another kids clothes week challenge this week but both kids have had runny noses, it's school holidays and shane is home for a couple of days off work to do the wall plastering so it was a bit unrealistic to think i could manage an hour of sewing a day. i have finished a few things for the kids in the last couple of weeks though, things that i had cut out in random evenings over the past couple of months.
a little (well, not so little, it will probably fit her until she is 6) tunic made from a lovely dobby voile that i actually found at spotlight for $1 in the remnant bin. gotta love a shirt that costs about 40¢. mae loves it and wants to put it on every time it is in sight. cute. i've made this top before, in a much smaller size, the pattern is no. 7 from ottobre 1/2009 (which is a brilliant issue, by the way).
and a tee made from a pumpkin patch wrap that sophie was given as a gift and she got way too big, way too fast to be able to use it in warmer weather (probably should have made something for sophie out of it, i guess! oh well, she's get the hand-me-down). this is pattern 5 from ottobre 01/2009 (see? great issue.) with inspiration for the overlocking on the neckline from made's 90 minute shirt.
and a couple of wee pairs of pants for soph. dare i say it? yep, design 2 from ottobre 1/2009. so good.
