Kid's Clothes Week sew along for the first time, since my sewing habits has changed. I used to be a weekend sewer. I would stay up all night, usually on Saturday nights, to finish up one project. But lately I sew few hours in late nights on weekdays. I may not finish a project in one night, but this way I can check the fitting on my daughter as I sew. Then on weekends I sleep more to have enough energy to keep up with my energizer daughter. My sewing habit may change again, but for now this works for me, and can fit to KCW's "sew 1 hour a day for 7 days" challenge better.
Olivia Top. I tried the pattern last month and sewed size 4T. I could tell it was going to be too big on my skinny girl, but still wanted to see how the average size 4T would fit on her.
I paired the top with a circle skirt I sewed last month. Though Momo loves the circle skirt, this top needed something else.
So I gave her those skinny pants...much better :)
The fabric is cotton twill and was a leftover from making a snappy top about 3 years ago. I had just enough to make an Olivia top with short sleeves. But of course I made a mistake when cutting out the pieces, and the sleeves had to be given up :(
I am happy I used up this scrap while Momo is still little and this kind of print looks cute on her.
Linking up to those fun parties.
