I've got kid clothes on the brain these days. More on that later... Did you all have a good Easter? I certainly hope so. We had a great time with my family. (Thanks again for coming guys!) Sydney loved playing with all her cousins. She especially loved the egg hunt - here's a running shot of her finding one.
Anyway, back to the clothes. I am feeling very inspired to sew Sydney clothes for summer. We have some major expenses coming this summer (new siding and windows for our house - ouch!!) and this seems like an easy way to save a couple bucks - and it's fun! Here's what I whipped up today.
Some easy flannel pajama pants. Since we still have snow I figured she will still get some use out of these! Sydney thinks the Chinese lanterns are pumpkins!
I also made this little summer skirt. I used part of the twirly skirt tutorial (in theory anyway) to make the drawstring/elastic waist.
I made both of these during nap time. I did have to wait for Sydney to wake up to finish hems, etc. Otherwise it took almost no time at all! I'm currently going through the summer clothes I have for Sydney (clearance from last year) so I can make some coordinating outfits. So look out - more kid's clothes to come!!
