Kid’s clothes challenge week day 5

In spite of my lack of posting, I've done well with my kid's clothes challenge this week.

Day 1: These pants

Day 2: I cut out 2 pairs of pajama pants. Sewed them together incorrectly, cut off the seams (way too much of a hassle to remove the serged seams…) and then went to bed for the night.

Day 3: Finished the pajama pants!

Day 4: Made a darling little skirt/shorts combo. Tutorial to follow soon…

Day 5: I'm hoping to complete another little skirt/shorts combo and begin taking pics for the tutorial. Oh, and I have my Mom's Group all morning, rush to gymnastics, home for baby's nap, then off to the dance recital dress rehearsal, then dinner, then collapse on the couch out of pure exhaustion… Oh and I must get to the dry cleaners today as well.

At some point this week I completed these as well. They were started long ago…


Pant from this tutorial. I cropped them because they were getting too short, added the side slit and the button for detail.

Skirt using my A-Line skirt tutorial, plus the ruffle.

On a completely unrelated note, do any of you mac users have Aperture? I started using it for storing my photos and the color is absolutely perfect on Aperture and when I import it into my blog it looks awful. I'm sure brother Google will have some answers for me if you don't…

    I don’t sew, so I don’t often comment on your sewing posts. However, this skirt is adorable! My girls are sizes 18mo and 3T in case you needed any ideas for my “homemade gift.” ;-)
    BTW, I DID complete the gifts for the giveaway you did a while ago. It took me a few months, but I think everyone liked their gifts. I did a photo book for our friend who was deployed, and I decorated scrapbook pages for the others so they could just add their pictures. I didn’t post about it, so I just wanted you to know that I did participate. ;o)
