KCWC Day Five: Paperboats Top

I think I am getting tired of sewing everyday. Or to be more precise I am getting tired of making a thing a day. It's too much pressure. Usually I cut the fabric out then procrastinate for a while before finally getting to sewing it. On average it takes me a week to make something. So this week has been crazy. I've been spending a lot of time at my sewing machine. I made five clothing pieces so far and have one more to go. I have Sleepover Pajamas cut out and ready to be sewn. I am also going to cheat and count it as two projects for Day Six and Day Seven.

So for Day Five I decided to make something easy-peasy. You can tell I am getting to the end of my rope. Ha. I had some fabric cut out for one top from Everyday Girls Clothes book. It was a breeze to sew and turned out cute.


The pattern is top #15 from Everyday Girls Clothes. The fabric is from Children's Lisette line. I really love this line. The cotton is very soft and light. It is also super cute. I made the biggest size they had in the book which is 120cm.


Emma loved it and insisted on wearing it even in the rain with a jacket on top of it.
I think Emma had a change of heart and now she is more willing to wear stuff I make for her. I know how sensitive she is to anything inside of her clothing and try to make changes with that in mind. I made almost all the KCWC things with french seams so E wouldn't complain. So now instead of complaining I get a happy smile and lots of twirling. Gotta love that!


  1. Really cute! I have some of that fabric too. And I am also getting tired of sewing. I did not finish my top yesterday because I kept messing up so I finally just turned off the machine.

  2. I think I'm in love with that top. You need to live by me so you can make all of my family's clothes :)

  3. @Masha, I love this fabric!!! Perfect for clothing, isn't it?
    And I am the same way, when I get too many mistakes in 15 minutes of sewing I just turn the machine off and take a day break. And I've been like that yesterday trying to finish Emma's pajamas. It drove me crazy but I had to finish those suckers. :)

  4. @gaylene, thanks! You know what, let's trade - you send Ashley here for summer as my babysitter and I will make her some new clothes :)

  5. i love this! the colors are fantastic and the fit is perfect.
