Kids Clothing Week
I finally joined this time!
Day 1 I pulled fabrics and plotted.
Day 2 Gwen needed a purple shirt to wear to school for wear purple day. I used Oliver + S Ice Cream dress pattern but made the shirt. I used Erin McMorris fabric line Weekends it is one of my favorites plus Gwen approved.
She loves it.
Day 3 I remembered these shirts my Mom figured out from a shirt Gwen had from Carters because my Mom is amazing like that and can make patterns. It is a round collar and a raglan sleeve. Since my mom isn't here anymore and I want to make more of these I am going to go to JoAnn's and find a pattern I know there is one out there. This style of shirt has been around forever.
I found a pattern for the shirt. Use Kwik Sew #K3905 Shorten the pattern for a top instead of a dress and lengthen sleeve & add elastic to the end of the sleeve.
I used fabric from Denyse Schmidt line DS Quilts Collection, Aunt Eda line (I think?). Gwen loves blue & Penelope loves pink and/or purple so they were perfect.
Sisters are so fun!
Next up is these tunic for the girls but we will see I might be losing steam.
