My partner said to me yesterday:
“I’m not a big fan of KCW . . .
except for all of the cute clothes that comes out of it.”
HAH! Kids Clothing Week is here and it’s definitely caught me off guard a little bit. Not because I didn’t know about it, but I’ve been so busy with other things that I didn’t really start thinking about it until the weekend and I barely had a chance to get prepped.
So I’m taking it a little easy this time (or so I say) and I’ve made three simple challenges for myself:
- sew with patterns I already own
- sew with fabrics that I already own
- sew super simple projects (so far each project I have planned has only 3 pattern pieces! score!)
And of course, hopefully I’ll be making things that my daughter will actually wear. That basically means t-shirts and pants. No ambitious patterns like the Jump Rope Dress or the Swing Coat this time around.
So here’s my pile o projects. Yes, it looks like a lot and honestly, I probably won’t get through it all. I should also point out that 7 of the projects come from only 2 patterns. That’s right – lotsa t-shirts and pants.
Day one was very productive! I started with a fun but simple Japanese pattern which I’ll share more about tomorrow when I get some pics of Yuki in it. I was able to bust out a pair of shorts too! Sticking with simple patterns can be extremely rewarding 🙂
How was your day one?
