Kids Clothes Week Jan 2014 – Outfit #1

January 28, 2014

I had a very productive day ONE of Kid’s Clothes Week, despite fighting an oncoming cold! I finished the Pocket Smock Top from The Cottage Mama’s new book – Sew Classic Clothes for Girls, and a pair of Go-To Leggings for my daughter. kcw outfit 1 title My daughter LOVES the Pocket Smock Top – she actually almost wouldn’t take it off for me to finish it after I tried it on her.  She loves the pockets! kcw outfit 1 pockets Good thing I did try it on her!  If I would have put the buttons on the “normal” way it wouldn’t fit!  Due to my girl being skinny and tall, I used her chest measurement and cut the bodice out to match (which was a 2T, I cut it at a 6 length), it fit great in the arms but just not quite right in the back.  Next time and I am sure there will be a next time, I will cut the bodice a size larger and lengthen the skirt part even more. kcw outfit 1 pockets 2 To close the back I just used elastic loops to go over the buttons, it works and looks pretty cute! kcw outfit 1 back I am also pretty happy with the custom bias tape – only my second time making it and my first time using my birthday gift from my friend (this Bias tape maker).  With the leftover bias tape I made a cute hair clip to match the outfit! kcw outfit 1 hair clip The leggings were easy to sew up and turned out so cute! I made them a little more difficult on my first run because I decided to make the ruched leg versions. I don’t think I perfected the ruching part but they are still cute!  I know the leggings will definitely become a staple in her wardrobe! kcw outfit 1 leggings ruching
