This past week I joined Elsie and many others for the Kids Clothing Week Challenge. It was a great experience that helped put a focus on my creative time in the evenings. The result of this week was two dresses, a skirt and a pair of pants. I traced and cut out two other patterns as well but got hung up on the fabric choices.
As I mentioned before I used a Japanese pattern book for the pair of pants. It worked out just fine. The illustration for how to sew each garment are so detailed I didn’t have any problems. However I do want to share an awesome link I found after I had finished the pants. It is a translation chart for Japanese sewing terms! Now I will be able to work on the much more complicated patterns!
I spent a lot of time perusing the Flickr group pictures and the Pinterest page. There are some truly amazing mamas out there making chic looking clothing. My Clothing I Want to Make board greatly expanded this week with new and fresh ideas.
Did you sew anything this week? If so please leave a link below to your post/s and I will check them out!
