It’s Kids Clothes Week again – summer edition! There’s now a brand new community KCW website where you can upload your projects, check out other participants, and browse through patterns. The site is still a work in progress, but it’s really cool and just keeps getting better – I encourage you to check it out! […]

Making shorts in April is jumping the gun by about three months around these parts, but here you have them: Oliver + S Class Picnic shorts. I bought the pattern for the blouse (made here), but then saw a few versions of the shorts in the Oliver + S Flickr pool that were made up […]

I’m really digging on the Oliver + S Class Picnic shorts right now. That pair I made for KCW was not rejected (hooray!!), and they are so cute on her, if I do say so myself. I love the confetti facings but I’m also a little sad they aren’t more plain, because adding a contrast […]

I haven’t sewn an article of clothing in almost three months (unless you count those undies), and I’ve missed it. Last month I started a Burda pattern and ended up abandoning because I couldn’t decipher the (lack of) directions. I guess I figured I should be able to follow a commercial pattern by now, but […]

Here’s that stuff I meant to make for KCW. Turns out all I needed was three extra weeks! First up, Oliver + S Class Picnic Shorts. It’s true, Oliver + S patterns are spendy, but this one has definitely been worth its price tag. I’m on my fourth pair of Class Picnic shorts now, and […]

Toni released this pattern (it’s a kids’ version of her Shearwater Kaftan pattern for women) a couple weeks ago and was kind enough to send me a copy. […]

Oscar is making a triumphant return to boy clothes today: And the elk are back! I was sure the (new to me) Oliver + S Field Trip Raglan T-Shirt would be a pattern worthy of the yellow Elk Grove knit I’ve been hoarding since last Kids Clothes Week. It’s true, I almost never cut into […]

Surprise, surprise, I’ve sewn up another Oliver + S pattern! It’s been two years since I made the Hopscotch skirt – Lila had her own special sense of fashion when I first tried the pattern, and those two weren’t worn much at all. But skirts are a safe bet now, and it’s another pattern she’s […]

There’s a lot of “take-two-ing” going on around here for Kids Clothes Week, and next up is the Clever Charlotte Sandpiper Top, which is another outgrown favorite from last summer. This is a great pattern, and the quickest, easiest little top to sew. So breezy and comfortable for hot weather, too. The fabric is Anna […]

It appears that summer has arrived over here, for this week anyway. The other night I made a Clever Charlotte Sandpiper top – it’s my first Clever Charlotte pattern and it was such a pleasure to sew. And such a cute little summer top (especially with some Class Picnic Shorts!) The fabric is Kate Spain […]
