kids clothes week challenge - day 2 and 3

While the visitors have been out visiting I managed to catch up a little. I finished Little Missy's pinafore dress, it's a little big so there is plenty of growing room. I used lots of turquoise and teal buttons from my stash to adjust the height of the straps, I think these are my favourite part of the dress.

Then I made a start on Missy Bigs red pinafore, I'm using the sundress pattern from Carefree Clothes for Girls (page 63). 

I'm spending more than one hour a day on this, just in case you thought I was employing elves to help out.

Here's a few of the goodies I bought at the Knitting and Stitching Show at the weekend. Lots of inspiring stuff there, was not allowed to take photos of it though.

 Back tomorrow with another dress finished I hope! Take a look at the flickr group for lots of wonderful makes.


  1. I love the colours you have in this pinnie. The cord fabric also has such a beautiful texture and so reminds me of being a kid. lol. Looking forward to seeing what you make with your new stash and ribbons.

  2. ummm love the colours on Missy Bigs dress.


Thank you for leaving a comment - it makes me smile to know you're out there. x
