Today started Kids Clothing Week Challenge (KCWC). I woke up all ready to tackle my first project. Yay! The only problem was that my kids did not want me to do anything but cater to their needs. Thank goodness for my husband and his amazing language training schedule. We picked him up at noon and after lunch I started sewing. I started with Oliver + S pattern. I knew how easy and straightforward Oliver + S patterns are and thought it would be great to start the sewing with one of them. I was so right!
This is a Classic Picnic Blouse pattern. I cut it out on Sunday and it was all ready for sewing. It came together pretty quickly. The only problem was my perfectionism as I had to do some ripping out to make it look just right. I probably spent the same amount of time ripping out the stitches as I did the sewing. The fabric is from JoAnn's and I love how colorful it is. It just screams summer to me.
Alyssa was so happy for her new shirt! She couldn't wait for me to finish it. Then she put it on and ran to show everyone. I love how happy this girl gets when I make something for her. Sadly it probably will be the only thing that I will sew for her this time as she has a ton of clothes.
Tomorrow I will be tackling a dress for Emma from a Japanese book - Everyday Girls Clothes. It will probably take longer but I hope to finish it by tomorrow night.
