You have already seen Liesl’s summer edit, as well as Rae’s (using her Lotus Pond fabric collection), now today I am sharing mine. Kids Clothes Week is just around the corner, July 21-27 to be exact, and it’s got me thinking about the wardrobe I would sew for my daughter C if I was planning a new wardrobe for her.
This was a really fun project that C and I did jointly. We sat down together and chose seven styles. Actually it started out at ten or twelve and was a little difficult to decide, but we narrowed it down to seven. The fabrics for this wardrobe are mostly florals from Liberty of London with a couple of solid fabrics, as well.
Garden Party Blouse in a blue Clarisse Tana Lawn. I have been seeing so many lovely Garden Party creations. It’s contagious, I need to sew one, too. This blue floral would make a nice sleeveless blouse and would be just right for those hot and humid days.
Birthday Party Dress in bright purple silk shantung. Guess who has a birthday this month? C insisted on a Birthday Party Dress for her big day, and it had to be bright purple. Who can blame her? It will be gorgeous! So, there you have it, one fancy dress to round off the wardrobe.
What are your Kids Clothes Week sewing plans? Would you like to plan your sewing like this? Having the patterns with swatches of each fabric you would choose?
