Yay! It’s Kids clothes week again! Time to celebrate spring… although here in Texas the summer heat is sneaking up on us already.
I absolutely love this “wild things” edition but I decided not to go with the theme. I’ve done my fair share of “wild things” sewing, but my girls get more picky. The bolder the prints, the longer it stays in their closet. On top of that, my oldest is on a handmade clothes strike for school wear. “All the kids in school wear only store bought clothes, mom”. I sigh, hoping this too shall pass and I’m grateful to have two more daughters.
This dress however … is a game changer! She LOVES it (I will not let her wear it for school though). When I bought the fabric (after these tops turned out lovely), I thought it would make a great summer dress.
My oldest adores the open back and the big pockets. I have read this post carefully and made the same changes (the skirt less wide and a 6y for my 8y old. At the end I took it in another 1/2 inch to prevent a gaping back).
My lack of patience won over my strive for perfection…always happens to me when I sew a pattern for the first time.
Juij! Het is Kids Clothes week! Het lukte me nog net om één zomerkleedje voor de oudste dochter af te werken. Geen wilde beesten of hippe ananassen maar lieflijke aardbeitjes (of wilde bosaardbeien zoals Bieke op Instagram suggereerde). Het is tegenwoordig niet gemakkelijk om haar blij te maken met handgemaakt gerief maar met deze jurk werd er gescoord. Hoera!
