KCW: Days 1 & 2

kid's clothes week

Just gotta go off  posting schedule this week!

Monday was day 1 of KCW and I made leggings for both souricettes.

The fabric is cotton jersey and the pattern is from the Sewing Modkid Style book.  I sized up and made them longer and they ended up a little bit baggy.  I’ll be trying the pattern again but I’ll use something with some lycra/spandex content.  They’re comfortable at least.  Souricette 1 says they feel like pajamas.  Hmmmm, matching T-shirts to turn them into actual pajamas?

Day 2, Tuesday, was actually more productive.  I was anxious to get one nightgown done.  Here.

I used a cute green on green polka dot cotton interlock and narrow stretch lace.  She loves it! Tip: once the stretch lace is applied, do not press on that side of the fabric with a hot iron.  Guess how I figured that one out…

And then, I really wanted to work on the Jalie tunic. I thought it would take me forever because it has a bunch of pieces but it went together like a dream.  And I love it so much!

Seriously, I think it will be my favorite project of the week.  It all just worked together wonderfully.  Great pattern!  And souricette 1 loves it too.  She’s only pouting because she wanted to wear it as a dress and it’S too short for that.  I may have to make her a second one in a dress length…  Oh, fabric: the white is cotton interlock and the print is cotton jersey.  The interlock has more body which makes it great for the collar, cuffs and belt.

I got the interlock at fabric.com and the jersey at Girl Charlee.  Both the argyle and damask are super soft.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some more sewing to do.  Still one or two more items to be made with white thread before I switch the serger to brown or black…

    I love that tunic! It was a quick sew? Nice! I bought some struggle from GirlCharlie, very soft too. 🙂

    • Thank you! Yes, it was so quick to sew. I was surprised because I’m usually quite slow and there are a lot of pattern pieces. I think the serger helped speed things up but still…

  2. […] pattern is Jalie 2793.  Remember I made the same one for souricette 1 during KCW? I’d had the pattern for such a long time and I’d never touched it.  I thought I might […]
