Welcome to day two of Kid’s Clothes Week! The project pool is filling up with amazing disguises, clothes with little disguised details, and just flat-out fantastic handmade duds.
The C3PO outfit just blew me away! Who ever thought a costume for a shiny, gold, metal droid could be comfy–or cute! It almost makes me want a gold spandex outfit for myself…almost. That sweet fox in hot pink trainers is wearing an old dress disguised as a new one. Brienne simply sewed a wide panel on the bottom of a too short dress and voila! See this theme isn’t all costumes and spandex:) Ooo, maybe our next theme should be gold spandex!
Comfy seems to be the big trend this season. I hope there aren’t people out there who are scared of knits. They are super fun to work with and your kids will love wearing them. Starting with thicker knits (interlock or french terry for example) and making pants is a good way to get started with knits. Don’t start with a tissue thin jersey! There will be too many tears and KCW is not about making you cry. But then again, it’s not all wine and straight seams either:)
Sorry, I forgot to give you this badge yesterday. If your work is pictured above, or featured any time this season, please slap this badge on your blog and tell everyone how awesome you are.
