kids clothes week - day one

I am floundering a bit already. I had planned on doing some prep and cutting out on the weekend, but with mother's day and other activities, I never got around to it. So last night (day one) was spent organising fabric and patterns. I traced off three patterns and will hopefully get started putting them together today.

This is what I have planned so far but I am also hoping to do a few pairs of easy pull on pants for both Will and Kitty.

A version of this yoked dress in floral baby cord for Kitty.

some raw edge tops for Will from a japanese magazine

Burda gathered side pants in denim for Lottie

skirt for Lottie, she wants it in this oilily velvet but I am not convinced it would work so am yet to cut it out. I will see if I can find another fabric in my stash that she likes.

gorgeous! I always feel better once I cut out things and give myself an afternoon to cut and set it aside for the next afternoon that I'm in the mood and have the time!


Fran said...

What a great variety of vintage patterns! I always find tracing and cutting out to be my least favourite bit - once that's done your halfway home!! Can't wait to see the finished garments

I can't wait to see the finished items! I have some of those oilily fabric - gorgeous!

Sally said...

I'm excited to see how that Enid Gilchrist dress turns out. Should be super.

Natalie said...

Can't wait to see what you make Ingrid! I love the patterns you have chosen

Karen said...

All sounds great Ingrid - that Oilily velvet is close to my heart - I spent lots of time watching a small girl in her outfit in it last year.
Now you're up to the fun part!
