Kids Clothes Week Challenge 2012

I’ve signed up for Kids Clothes Week Challenge over at… It sounds like fun!

Basically, you set aside one hour a day to focus on completeing a sewing project for your kids. And it’s fun because lots of people are signing up and joining in to share their sewing projects, update on their progress and their results, and we get to “meet” mummies + some daddies who are just as crazy about sewing as us.

For KCWC 2012 I’m going to make this. I really like this outfit, and I think it will look great on R. Most of the time when my girls do their “shopping” through my pattern books, they have always skipped the shirt/pants combo and go straight for the dresses. Recently I noticed R trying to imitate what I wear though… and I wear shorts all the time especially when I’m on my own with the kids (Makes it alot easier to run after them) ;) So I asked her if she would wear this very cute outfit and she said YES!

I really like how girly the shorts are. I might scale it up to make one for myself! :)


The original top calls for lace cotton lawn, which is sheer and requires a camisole to be worn inside. Knowing how hot it will be to layer up, I chose this fabric (tentatively) which I bought for 420Yen from the 1m bargain bin in Kanariya :) The bottom will be a plain grey twill. I still need to get a matching cotton tape for the ribbon and drawstring for the pants pocket. Then I’ll be all ready to get started!

KCWC starts next Monday 23-30th…. Check out the link above or the button on the sidebar for more details if you want to sign up!

    That is some pretty fabric. I still have too many ideas running around in my head that I have yet to determine which specific projects I will make next week. Probably depends on which fabric comes out of my stash first. :)
