The Straight-Grain blog has opened me up to a whole new world of kids fashion and what a beginner sewer can achieve.
This is the first time a fashion trend has ever "clicked" with me and I have thought "I love everything about that fashion!" Kids clothing Belgian styles: The prints and fabrics! The colour combinations! The shoes!
I don't know if I love the style for myself, but for my daughter yes yes yes!
This was my attempt at creating something different for her, I used a free pattern for a peplum bubble dress. The pattern was really easy to understand, even though I'm not a zip novice (I dont even have a zipper foot! (I can't seem to find one for my ancient Globe machine???)), and have never used bias binding before. The 18mo fit is perfect for Milla.
I'm quite proud of how it turned out, and Jen from Mend and Make New really is convincing me that sewing kids clothes is so rewarding and fun!
