Kids clothes week day 3,4 and 5!

PMy days are crazy with juggling library story hour, gymnastics, work and my mama duties. 
I managed to finish the girls Lacy and Lane Slope Hoodie. I love them, they love them and I can't wait to make mine, ya know after kids clothes week. Lol. 

For this version is used interlock with rib knit cuffs. 

We added a rhinestone design to the front. 

Now for my diva, I used a gradient rainbow jersey knit from Girl Charlee. 

I took the time to line all those stripes up and I am very glad that I did.  

My 3 love their hoodies as do I. This may be my go to. At sine point I want to make a front zip coat with the thumb holes as well. 

Now yesterday my husband took my van to get new tires and left me his truck as a just in case of an emergency. It was my first day I didn't need to be somewhere so I spent the day sewing. 
I has been eyeing the Primrose from Create Kids Couture for some time but didn't want the halter neck. I wanted a peasant top, long sleeve with fall coming. Lucky for me the Jewel was on sale yesterday. 
I lengthened the bodice of the Jewel by making sure the sides measured the same, under the arm hole. 
I also choose to do a rolled hem and shirred the neck and arms and added Shirring at the wrist. I only did 3 layers to the skirt bc I only wanted it to be knee length. 
I am very pleased with the results!

I love that the faux corset can be worn in front or back and it pulls the bodice in nicely. I was even able to make a perfectly matched necklace. 

That's all for now. 
Hope you have a great day. 
Next up maybe Halloween costumes.

Just a little bit of personality here.

Kids clothes day 2

Yesterday I spent the morning tracing and cutting a tester pattern out. Well 3 actually, it is such an awesome pattern I wanted each of the kids to have one. 
Due to the detail and gymnastics I was only able to finish sewing one. 

I have to say that this came out amazing. My son absolutely and positively love how it can out. 
As you can see the pajama wearing small boy gives his approval. 

Now die the pattern.  This is from greensborough creations and is the kids version of the Lacy Slope Hoodie. 

As soon as I finished this one I had to buy the adult version and plan on making one as soon as I finish the kids 3. 

That's all for now. 
Hope you have a great one!

Kids clothes day 1

Long time no chat! I appologize, I have been so busy, not sewing you much. 
This week gives me a great excuse to challenge myself. You see it's kids sewing week. The items I made just happen to be sample but they are for my children. 
For both of them I modified the Ava from signature creations. (Link soon, I am mobile)
The first is for my little diva. I love it and I am sure when she sees this she will too. 

Next up is for a sporty gal, 

I love these sets! 
I am offering them in my shop, it will include a girls skirt, doll skirt, bow and necklace for the low price of $50. 

Well that's all for now, I just got home from work and beed to get my behind in bed. Tomorrow l have a pattern to test in a few sizes!
Have a great one.
