My entries for kids clothing week

Sewing for KCWC
Elsie over at Elsie Marley is having an amazing series called Kids Clothing Week where the participants commit to spending one hour a day everyday for a week to sew clothes for children.
Here's what I made yesterday:
sew basic pants

A simple pair of pants.


shirred sundress and pants set

A set of shirred dress along with a simple pant with a contrasting band to go with it. I don't really love this fabric but I have a lot of it just sitting there, so I once shirred it on a whim. Recently when I got my serger, I took a long look at it again and finally used some of it. I think I like it now that it has been paired with a cheery bright red.
I have more of that pink fabric above and I would like to try a new dress pattern to go with them, which judging by my recent sewing adventures, will be a flop. I'm planning to show you some of the things that want to make me bang my head to the closest wall, and might make you laugh a little ( or more).
