More Kid Clothes...


I'm cranking things out like a mad woman over here! I just need to remember to stop and share them with you! This outfit started with the top from Children's Place. It was on sale for less than $5. I was probably crazy to buy white, but it was too cute. I couldn't resist.
The little capri pants are made from a wild purple flower fabric that has been in my stash for a very long time...I'm guessing 4 years. It is heavier than a standard cotton and has some stretch to it. I love the funky pants paired with the simple top.
To tie the outfit together I cut out 2 flowers from the fabric to applique, but then thought of a better idea. Since it is a white shirt it is inevitable that it will need to be bleached so I didn't want to permanently adorn it. I took the two flowers and cut white canvas for backing then free-motion quilted the two pieces together. I added a little safety pin to the backs and they were done! (And so much fun! I need to free-motion more!)


Next up - two more pairs of capris, a pair of shorts, some more lounge pants, maybe another skirt and then some dresses (which means I will have to actually break out a pattern! Yikes!!) And then I supposed I should actually make something for me!
Happy Thursday all!

These is so sweet, Roxanne! Clever idea to make the flower adornments removeable. Maybe you could even make up other adornments so this shirt would match up with other skirts or capris as well?

good for you cranking out clothing left and right. I like your solution of applying the flowers with pins so you can bleach the shirt. and the print of the fabric for the pants is just perfect!!! it's a wonderful outfit.
