I’ve got one more outfit to show you that I made during Kids Clothes Week. This one was for little Gaëlle who has been fighting one flu after another for the last couple of months. Poor little girl… And the cold weather is just barely setting in here in Canada so we are not out of the woods yet!
So I made sure to make her a super warm and comfy knit jersey outfit.
I made the Cowl Neck Jumper Dress from Heidi and Finn. I made this dress before, for Alix, and I loved how quick and simple it was to make. Alix still wears asks to wear it today, even though it is starting to be a bit snug for her. (Forgive the bad pic… it’s from my early blogging days, when I would shoot pics from my phone late at night and plop them on the blog with zero editing).
If you have a serger, you can zoom through this dress at lightning speed. Anyone else like to sew at lightning speed? So rewarding!!!
I made a pair of leggings to go with the dress. I once again used the free Ellie Inspired leggins pattern, but made them reversible by making two exact pair of leggings and attaching them together at the ankles and at the waist before sewing the individual inseams (does that make any sense?).
It makes them really warm as well as cute.
The coral poppies jersey is from JayCyn Designs and was purchased from Simplifi Fabric on Etsy. They’re from Ontario, my province, so I didn’t have to fear any dreaded customs charges. Their shop is definitely worth checking out, even if you are from out-of-province, as they have some really great fabrics: Birch Fabrics, Cloud9, Euro knits… I’ll be ordering from them soon again!
The grey knit jersey was found at my local Fabricland in the clearance aisle.
And the little clouds? From another great Etsy store called Seligkeitsding and located in Germany. You might recall I had purchased fabric from them to make Alix’s Bimaa Sweater. Fabulous quality fabric, and thick enough that it won’t get stuck in your sewing machine (or am I the only one cursed when it comes to lightweight knits???)
Well, that wraps-up Kids Clothes Week for me! It was certainly knit jersey intensive, haha! Can’t wait for KCW winter edition… maybe we’ll go crazy with the fleece this time?
