Sewing Clothes for Kids
October 12, 2011
For the longest time, the idea of sewing clothes intimidated me. It all started the day I accidentally pinned my 9 month old daughter while I was trying to alter a dress that I had made for her. Ever since, making a quilt has honestly seemed easier.
In preparation for Baby Jude’s arrival, the cold weather ahead, and my growing daughter, I have been sewing lots of clothes for my two kiddos these days. Can I say two kiddos, even if one is still in the oven?
And I’m happy to report that I have honestly enjoyed all the sewing projects that I’ve done. I’ve learned a lot and we have all stayed injury free.
I still need to get a dress form some day, and then I’ll tackle making clothes for myself, but in the meantime I’m enjoying sewing clothes for my kids.
Here are some bibs I made for Baby Jude: (this pattern comes from a dear friend of mine, Nicole from Elsa Bags)
Here’s another skirt I sewed for Monet (along with the two skirts I sewed for her a few weeks ago). I made this skirt reversible, so really it’s two skirts in one:
I still have about 10 more items waiting to be sewn –the fabric yells at me every time I walk into my sewing studio. So I guess this is just the beginning.
What do you think I should sew next?
Sewing Patterns I used:
Oliver + S Lazy Day Skirt (After making this lovely skirt so many times, I have now started to add my own alterations and embellishments.)
