44. Kids Clothes Week April 2015 - Day 1, 2, and 3

Lets get this Kids Clothes Week started! Would you believe that this time I actually started 2 days early!

A friend is pregnant with a girl and I just had to make her clothes for her baby shower which was on Sunday. So I made a dress and a couple of pairs of footed leggings.

The dress is from Ottobre 03/2014 #8 Jersey dress which I modifed by leaving off the cap sleeves.  Now it is a bit more verstile and can be worn over onsies etc

I have been pushing myself using more knit fabric and this time I think I nailed the neck and armhole binding.
And the footed leggings which once again are Ottobre 01/2014 #11 Footed pants:
I didn't realise that all these photos were blurry :( and I can't take more photos as they have already been gifted!  I have made these in Polar fleece for Rohan here and here (here).  I made my earlier adjustment of lowering the waist by approx 3cm and this time I slimmed them down a little in the leg.

I am really happy with them.  I wish I could have found some nice pink knit by Spotlight was all blues, greens and oranges. 

43. Kids Clothes Week April 2015 - I have signed up!

Yay, I have committed again to sewing kids clothes for 1 hour a day for 7 days.  It is a commitment but I am up for it!
