This week, Elsie Marley is having a Kids Clothes Week Challenge. The challenge is simple–dedicate 1 hour each day this week to making clothes for kids (your own or someone else's). Elsie has some tutorials posted on her blog for easy reference if you are not sure what to create. Here are her FAQs about the challenge. I want to know if you are doing the challenge!
If you do not know what to make, Jona Giammalva just released her own patterns last week (how exciting!!), you can order this cute little dress to make! It has been much fun reading about her journey to have her patterns printed. She is a great pattern designer and writer, you shall not be disappointed!
I am preparing to HOST a sew along! It will be the School Days Coat by Oliver + S.
If you have any resources to share for COAT fabrics (wool, especially), toggle buttons, leather cording, or for the RAIN JACKET (laminated cotton, in particular) e-mail me or leave a note in the comments. I will post the sites in a separate post a little later to help people prepare. Also, if you have any recommendations on where the size 4-8 pattern can be found (local or online), give up the info! The pattern is discontinued and now out of print and there may be a few patternless people wanting to join the sew along.
Pass on the information on the "2 things" as you see fit, thanks people.
This was a linky post.
