Kids Clothes Week Decisions and Prep

KCW is nearly upon us and I have decided to have some structure around what I make this time. I wanted to get as much done as possible on the last one, but then, I always have a list as long as my arm, so nothing new there.

I am narrowing it down to three patterns and these are the ones I am making.

The Flutter Skirt by Sew Sweet Patterns - I have made this before in a smaller size but this one will be a size 6T, minus the bow ties at the back.

The Family Reunion Dress by Oliver and S - surprisingly I have only made the dress version once before and seeing as it is her favourite (and most worn) piece of clothing I thought another one should be made soon. Plus I am earning brownie points by doing it in pink (she has been pestering for ages).

The Hopscotch Skirt by Oliver and S - an instant favourite and a very quick sew. 

These are my fabric choices for each pattern. If I get through these three I will make a few Hopscotch tops to go with everything.

So these are my plans, how about you?


  1. Ahhh, KCWC! Was intending to participate, but have made no plans and it's school holidays here....

  2. I'll join you. I was going to leave the machine alone for a week, but hey, how can I when it's officially Kid's Clothes Week!
