Last week Elsie Marley hosted a Kids Clothes Week Challenge where you are to sew for an hour a day and make some new spring/summer clothes for your kiddos. Last year I got a shirt done. I am a very slow sewer. This year I totally fudged on the rules. I still only made one shirt but I did it the week before and in two (maybe three) nights. I have no idea how much the whole thing took but my husband was on a trip and after the kids went to bed I could do what I wanted without feeling bad that I was ignoring my "better half".
If you want you can check out the flickr pool. The things that these women pump out are amazing! I do wonder if they really only sewed for an hour each day. I don't think that they are counting all the prep work like washing the fabric and laying the pattern and cutting the pieces out. I could never work that fast!
So here is what I made:
It is the Ruffled Halter from Oliver+S. I've always wanted to make something from one of their patterns and this one is free! I also want to make her a pair of matching Knotted shorts.
Bethany is so willing to have a photo shoot. Enjoy!
