How many of you are participating in KCWC (Kids Clothing Week Challenge) by Meg at  the Elsie Marley blog?  If you’re not familiar with the sew-a-long, twice a year Meg invites readers to commit to sewing clothing for their kids (or other people’s kids) for 1 hour a day for a week. You know all of those half done projects you have stashed in the corner to complete when you have more time? (Ha! Ha! That’s me! ) Well, KCWC is a great push to get those pieces (and new ones) completed. This fall’s challenge runs October 8-14. I’m taking a few days to pause from the Moms Know Moms series to share what I’m working on. There are still more interviews to come, so don’t go too far!

For day one of KCWC,  I made these two full skirts. They have a waistband with a back zipper and Mexican Pleating  (or Wave Tucks) on  the center band for detail. The tops are not new, you can find the tutorial here. Of course, my camera’s battery is missing (Honey?), so I grabbed my phone again for some quick pics.

Happy Day!

(Keep doin’ what you  love!)

      Hi there Jo, and thank you! These challenges are so much fun. Are you participating? You have so many pretty things pinned on Pinterest.

    You have done it again Shannon. These skirts are super cute! Do you have a certain number of items you would like to finish before the challenge is over?

    • Shannon_CC says:

      Thank you, Tamika! That’s a good question. I think I’ll be satisfied if I can make at least one thing for each of the kids. So, 6 items. Two down and 4 more to go!
