Day 2 of Kids Clothes Week has come to a close and I am happy with the results. Today I sewed up the Explorer Skirt by Hey There Threads.
When models are paid in candy and hugs they don’t always cooperate, but you learn to work with what you have 🙂 Sophie was only willing to put the skirt on if she could wear her pajama’s as well I was happy to oblige.
I got a bit of a jump start on the skirt last night since I knew I would be gone for most of the day today. It is a really easy sew and a great stash buster for the pockets since there isn’t much accent fabric required. I was able to get both pockets out of a fat quarter I had in my stash. The main fabric is a dark charcoal grey suiting I found as a remnant at Joann’s. I thought the splash of colour for the pockets was perfect for Sophie’s current pink obsession.
I am really looking forward to tomorrow when I am sewing up my first Bimaa Cowl. I picked out a tonal green stripe sweater knit with a grey heavy weight jersey for the cowl. Thursday I will take the same fabric and make a matching Recess Raglan for Benny.
I managed to get some pictures of the kiddos in their robes this afternoon. They were having so much fun jumping on the bed.
