Spring Kids Clothing Week Challenge

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.
