KCWC: Day 7

Another simple refashion.
For Bug.
Yeah, I almost forgot about her :)

It was originally a tank I chopped off below the bust, I serged the top of what became the skirt and added the ties from the tank as a waistband. There is a zipper in the side that I'm pretty darn proud of... I don't do a lot of zippers but somehow it just worked this time. Yeah! The fabric has a little metallic gold to it in places, which is Bug's favorite part but it didn't photograph well.

KCWC: Day 6

Flutter sleeves.
I love everything about them.
Thankfully Moo does too!
{I am thankful she let me style this outfit.}
 See the animals in the background?
I love where we live!
For this tunic, I modified the Sienna dress from LBB.
It is such a great pattern!

KCWC: Day 5

My sweet 3 year old loves blue. LOVES blue. So it's fitting that she has a new blue skirt!

This took less than half an hour to make & take pics of. Hooray for a great refashion! It was originally a tank and I just chopped off the top & added an elastic casing. Perfect.

Unfortunately work has been getting in my way of sewing this weekend. I hate it when that happens! So when Monday rolls around I'll finish up the next couple things I had planned out & finish off the week!

KCWC: Day 4

{twirl skirt}
I am so happy to have made it to day 4!

I went with simple today and made a black twirly skirt with another LBB pattern. I love the exposed white serged seams, and had imagined it with an orange halloween shirt. However, my 3 year old took over the styling for the shoot and we ended up with a favorite too-short shirt instead.
I think one of the hardest parts of this challenge is getting the pictures done!

KCWC: Day 3

I have been dying to try Rae's Big Butt Baby Pants pattern, and I hate that it took me so long to buy it! Mister has been growing like a weed... or a little boy, I suppose. Somehow he's tiny and huge all at once.

This pattern rocks! Super easy to make.
I made my elastic casing before I looked at what size elastic I had in the house, so I ended up doing a couple more rows of stitching to make the casing a little smaller. I ended up liking the detailing it added to the top with the navy thread. Because they are a nice cozy flannel they are super easy for him to wear!

I see more of these in the future...

KCWC: Day 2

Boy clothing is tough.
Really tough.
Every once in a while...
I find something great.
Today was one of those days!
Browsing the flickr group, I found this.

And fell in love.
Got out my sewing machine,
and got to work.
Less than an hour later,

I had a handsome drooly boy
modeling a great boy shirt.

My favorite features are the cuff sleeves and the band at the bottom.
I slightly modified the LBB Sienna dress pattern for the shirt. Another one of my favorite go-to patterns, I am happy it will work for a boy too!

KCWC: Day 1

I am off to a great start! Day 1 done!
I have done this week challenge a couple times now, and I still find myself going back to the patterns that I love again and again. This LeilaandBen pattern I have used before during the KCWC (several times actually...) but I love it just more every time. And combined with polka dots... love!

I chopped it into a tunic length for a new school shirt for Moo. I couldn't help but make a matching tunic for Gretta :)

Hooray for finishing two garments in one day!
