Kid's Clothes Week, Day 3

I was able to finish up the maxi dress today and started cutting out another T-shirt from the same pattern. With Olivia's growth spurt, we find she's in need of everything, so we are focusing on the Women's Metro T-Shirt Pattern and making dresses and shirts from that pattern, to quickly put some much needed clothes into this girl's wardrobe.

She started asking for a maxi dress, last year, and the plan was to do that, but life got busy and so we just never got to it, until now. :)  Here she is in her fun new maxi dress.  We might make one more of these, just because she really likes this style dress. ;)


Next up is a T-shirt, white with black polka dots. :)



Back tomorrow..............

Elegant-this really suits Olivia. I need to make time to sew! Any thoughts about sewing projects for seven year old girls or where to look for ideas?

Sarah, I will often look at a few on line stores in their children's section to get an idea of what's out there. I look for the classic lines, mostly. I have often looked at Landsend http://www.landsend.com/, Wooden Soldier http://www.woodensoldier.com/ and places like that. Then I find a pattern that has similar lines and go with that. Sometimes second hand stores have great ideas, too, you just might like that and then add to the garment to make it appropriate for your daughter....by the way, how did she get to be 7 years old? Wow! Time is slipping by fast!
