day one of the kids clothes week challenge.
i have managed to complete a few items today.
the first being a skirt upcycled from a ladies t shirt which i forgot to photograph. actually it only took me about 10 minutes to do as i simply cut the bottom section of a t shirt and sewed in some elastic to the waist. should be a nice comfy skirt for playing in the garden.
i also finished off a nightie that i started yesterday. made of the softest flannelette, i kind of made this up as i went as i didn't have a pattern using a tunic style top of jess's that had raglan sleeves. the nighties that amanda made for her daughter here were my inspiration. such a simple tunic style nightie with plenty of room for growing. i added a circle pocket to the front which jess loved.
and lastly another quick and easy top made from vintage material. i love this style of top and have made a similar version before as a dress. i have plans to make another one later in the week. the pattern for this one came from here .
i have also started a pair of slippers for jess but ran into a problem so its back to the drawing board for them. maybe something to work on tomorrow.
