Hi all! I'm deep in the thick of sewing for my kiddlets over here. Kid's Clothes Week doesn't officially kick off until next week but since I have two little girls to sew for I'm creating my own two week challenge. This week is being devoted to making clothes for my big girl, who's turning 6 next month. (Where does the time go!?) She's the challenging one because she's started forming her own opinions about what she likes to wear and what she "will get laughed at" for. It's sad that already at 6 there's peer pressure to have "cool clothes". I may be weird but I can't stand clothes with big giant brands on them or how on so many kid's items they slap licensed characters on them to appeal to the kids. It drives me nuts. I've noticed that really avoiding that stuff lately and just giving my girl basics, she's developing this awesome sense of style that's all her own. It's quirky and colorful and I love it! We've had numerous lengthy discussions about color choices and styles. I think the list of what I'm making should all be winners and I can't wait to share them with you at the end of the week!
I had originally planned to do a little roundup of some of the free tutorials that I've found lately but when I hopped over to the Elsie Marley blog yesterday she's done just that thing. And she's done it really beautifully! So, I thought I would just point you to her site for loads of gorgeous inspiration. Not just for girls but for boys too! So check it out and get inspired!
