Kids Clothes Week Midpoint!

kid's clothes week

 

And I have…. nothing.  Oh, I’ve been sewing, I have!

Monday, I worked on a pattern test for Heidi&Finn.  I did enough to have souricette 1 try on the top before bed and I finished the hemming afterwards.  But I think I’m not allowed to share pictures until the pattern is published.  I think.  Better safe than sorry even though that makes for a very boring post…

Tuesday and Wednesday were devoted to another pattern test.  This one for Jennuine Designs.  Souricette 2 will be getting a Matinée Dress.  And it won’t be blue!  Grey and yellow.  I’m a little angry with myself because it never even occurred to me to try to match the pattern at the seams.  But the floral is large scale enough for pattern matching to be possible and even desirable.  Oh well.  And the only reason I’m not done with that dress yet is…

I’ve been doing a little bit here and there for my final Project Run&Play look.  I have these two big panels of machine knit lace that are going to be turned into a dress (lined, of course).  It took me a while just to outline my pattern pieces.  The thing is, I have to outline them with thread because other fabric marking tools just don’t work as well.  And now, I need to machine sew along each of those basted lines so that I can cut the fabric without it unravelling.

Pictures soon, I promise!
