Tomorrow kicks off the Spring 2012 edition of the “kids clothes week challenge” (kcwc as the cool kids say), hosted by Meg at elsie marley! I was almost late to the party, but I decided to take the plunge and join in. The idea behind Meg’s challenge is that if you can commit to just one hour of sewing (or cutting/planning/knitting/whatever) for your kids each day for a week, you’re bound to end up with something great to show for it by Sunday. One hour a day sounds achievable, so I’m in!
Here’s what I would like to tackle this week:
- A new sun hat for Lincoln, using the (free) Reversible Bucket Hat pattern from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew. There are plenty more gems in this book too!
- A little summer romper for Juniper, using Simplicity 1813, an adorable vintage reissue from the latest collection. I’m thinking view A (minus the cupcake), or D/E (love that ruffle-bum!).
And this sweet little pleated dress for Juniper:
