made for kids month wrap-up

Whether you participated a little or a lot, it looked like everyone had fun playing along with Made for Kids Month in June. We did a round-up at the halfway point but here are even more wonderful Oliver + S clothing spotted in the Made for Kids Month Flickr group.

First up, _sarah_b_ contributed this Garden Party Dress sewn out of Lisette floral sateen.

Special thanks to Rae for co-hosting. Many thanks to you for encouraging kids to wear handmade during the month of June. What does everyone think, should we do this again next year? If anyone has done a round-up or a photo mosaic please put a link in the comments section so we can all see!

    I’m late to this, but here’s my recap:

    I loved seeing my Peanut in handmade all month. I hope you make it an annual event!

    I think they would love it!

    I know many girls were disappointed not to be able to join in,

    Nicole, I was wondering if people might be interested in another one in January?

    It worked very well for those over seas, not so easy for us Australians with children in school.
    That said, I did enjoy the casual nature of just ‘snapping’ a shot.

    I definitely think this should be an annual event! I had a lot of fun both participating and seeing what everyone else was posting. I was pleasantly surprised that for the most part at least one of my kids is wearing something I sewed everyday. I said nothing to them regarding the challenge (though they did catch on mid-way through the month) so it was eye opening to see what clothes they wore on a regular basis. The Oliver + S Sketchbook shorts proved to be popular. P wore his twice and so did MG. The Class Picnic shorts were another fave.

    Here’s my photo mosaic:
