kcwc cheat

so elsie marley's kids clothing week challenge (sew clothes for your kids one hour a day for seven days) is now in full swing and unfortunately, i am not. i don't know how i managed to convince myself that the week after a major market would be full of spare time. in actual fact i have about a bazillion things to do and a ton of fabric to print and in reality my kids don't really need many clothes right now. mostly because when i signed up for kcwc, i was all pumped and ended up sewing a bunch of stuff for them in the following weeks. so this week i'll be showing what i accomplished for them last month instead. sort of cheating but sort of relevant?

here's a dress i made for mae from this japanese sewing book. actually really hard to get a decent photo, it looks great in real life but doesn't perfectly translate to image somehow. it was a fun and easy sew and when i do get a bit of time for more clothing sewing, i think i'll tackle it again, maybe in wool for winter layering?

  1. Only sort of a cheat. That dress is lovely and would be brilliant in wool!

  2. I really must sign up next year! Love Mae's plaits and the dress. I made a similar one, in wool, for Islay a couple of years ago - and it looks great with long sleeve top and tights. http://www.forestpoppy.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/moving-target.html

  4. Nah, I don't think the KCWCers would mind! This dress is beautiful. I love buttons down the back. And I love plaits!!

  5. Nice dress,very comfort and nice color,it's a better choice for baby girl but in my opinion parents should be choosy and buy comfortable,sophisticated cloths.

  6. The dress is just adorable, and so nicely made. (I came here from browsing the Elsie Marley photo pool.)
