Its easier for my kids to mostly wear what I make when its not winter. I don’t imagine quilter’s cotton to be comfortable in long sleeves and I have yet to pick out my serger to start sewing knits. I am SUPER excited about clothes making for spring and summer for my little ladies! Fabrics have been ordered and picked out from my stash. Here’s what I have planned so far:
The last four, plus the mint chevron, I already have in my stash and figured it went OK with the other blushes, teals and mints. The top dark background ones are navy, not black. The prints/patterns are all over the place. Five come from Cotton & Steel, the two chevron’s with metallic are Michael Miller and the last two are Bari J. Ackerman. That floral is a voile as well as the spotty one, third to last. The rest are quilter’s cotton. I wish more prints I like came in voile/lawn.
I have a whole list of possible items to make, drafting some my own, and many from patterns I already have:
Flat-front shorts, some with side panels in print or coordinating solid.
Scallop-edge shorts (probably from the scallop print).
Panel dresses, both with the print on the front and dresses with the print on the sides.
Something from the 5 & 10 dress book that I haven’t made anything out of yet.
Bubble skirts (going to make this in January for the Project Run & Play challenge).
Skirt with inverted box pleats with different fabric inside the pleat.
An easy blouse with faux-cap sleeves I plan to draft myself with a button/loop back closure.
Maybe a few light jackets with some prints as lining and for the insides of pockets.
WHAT!? I hope I get it all made before fall! I only made about half the things I planned for their fall items, Indian Summer.
Suggestions and advice is welcome.
