During the last week, I’ve been sewing some of the items I have planned for my kids’ fall wardrobes. I had put off so many personal sewing projects while I was working on my undies pattern, I was itching to get started. Here is what I made for E-boy this week:
This tee was super-simple, but I love how it came out with these stripes. The jeans have green topstitching to accent the separate curved leg panels and knee darts.
This hoodie is made from cotton/lycra french terry. I actually made one for each of my kids, and they have been trying to find excuses to wear them even though the weather has been hot lately, so they must like them.
And another reverse applique tee, this time with a robot motif. The colors are actually lime and chocolate, which looks great in real life, but horrible in the photo. Can I say again how much I love this technique for little boy tees?
So, after I had made these pieces (oh, and one more striped tee that somehow didn’t get photographed) I went through E-boy’s things from last Fall and found that many of them still fit him, so with the addition of these adorable mommy-made pieces, he’s pretty much set. Not that it will stop me from sewing for him if I want to, just I’m assured he won’t be going naked anytime soon.
