Sewing Clothes for Kids

sewing for kids girls shirtFor 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:

Quick Change Trousers from Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner

Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress

Oliver + S Lazy Day Skirt (After making this lovely skirt so many times, I have now started to add my own alterations and embellishments.)

      Yes, I have plans and fabric to make about 2-3 more pairs of these pants for baby Jude. Aren’t they wonderful! I think I might wait till he’s born though, in case he is a really big baby (which I anticipate since I’m huge, lol).

    I love your creativity and style.
    I live in the SLC area and was wondering if you offer any classes for children or adults.
    Just curious…
