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.
(Keep doin’ what you love!)
