I haven’t sewn for my kids in a while, so next week’s kids clothing week challenge is just the kick in the butt I need. I participated last Fall, and it was awesome to end 7 days of sewing for one hour a day with some new momma-made clothes for my children.
Here is what I’m going to work on during the challenge:
- finish Agnes’s raincoat – for months now all I need to do is slip stitch the lining hem to the exterior
- make the hopscotch dress (or shirt if I don’t have enough fabric) for Agnes – this will be my first time to machine sew with knits and I’m excited to use this fantastic fabric I bought in Missoula, MT over the Summer
- oilcloth aprons for both children – I just got Little Things to Sew (my mother’s day gift to myself) and I’m considering using the bias trimmed apron pattern – I need to buy some boyish looking oilcloth/coated cotton for Ely’s apron
- make some lazy days skirts – I can use up a lot of 1/2 yards of fabric this way
Of course everything I want to make is an Oliver + S pattern, no surprise there. I’m sure I won’t get to half the items on the list, but a few items of clothing sewn are better than none. Maybe I’ll be really smart and cut out all the pattern pieces this week.
