KCW day4 : newborn clothes

Hi all. Today I have done many tiny outfits for my soon to be born baby girl. They are all simple project as you can imagine, what a little baby will wear during her first couple months of life.

Diapers cover: must have item! I followed the tutorial by MADE. It turned out so cute!

Bloomers : pattern by Whimsycouture. This pattern is fast to sew.

Kimono top : I use Japanese pattern from this book.

Even I can't understand any sentence in the book. The diagrams are detailed enought to guide me through it was done.

I was happy with the result so far. I hope to make a bit more and wish my little one will not arrive before her schedule.

Happy sewing!

KCW summer day 3 : Swaddle for coming baby

Do you count swaddle blankets as a clothes? I'm not sure but these are what I did for my up coming little girl during this kids clothes week.

First is the snuggler swaddler which I made from free pattern of Lotta Jansdotter. This pattern is one of project in her book. But she also offer this pattern for free download here. The original version suits for cooler weather so, I only made it with double gauze and muslin to go along with our always summer weather.

Another is very simple. I bought the super soft double gauze from Miss Matatabi shop and fall in love with them! I can't made a decision to cut fabric to pieces. End up is I use the whole yard to make a blanket. Just sew another layer of muslin with that double gauze. Easy as it sounds but I'm sure that I will get the good use of this blanket.

What do you make during this season! Happy sewing.



P.S. I really love to read comment. :)

KCW Summer 2014 : Tiered kid art-like dress

Hi all. I took an advantage from my location to start KCW summer 2014 earlier than your guys in U.S. or Europe. Here is what I done for this season...

The Tiered dress, made from kid art-like linen. Highly twirlability!

Tiered kid art-like dress
As you may know that this summer KCW has a theme call "Kid ART" and my girl coincidence selected this linen which looks like her own art pieces. We both happy together.

Pattern from Happy homemade, Sew Chic Kids

The pattern is from Happy homemade Sew Chic Kids, pattern F : Tiered Dress (same pattern also available in tiered top). It is easy to sew. I've changed hemming to flower bias and used the big ribbon to make a sling.

It did pass the twirly test!
The girl love airily feeling of linen and the dress was pass her twirly test. Perfect for summer!

Perfect for summer 
I have to stop making dress for my 4 years girl and start to make something for my little kicker who is due in a next couple of week. But sewing for big girl is so fun!

That smile make me want to sew more and more dress for her!
I plan to sew some basic summer outfits and swaddle blankets for my little one. What do you sew for your newborn? Is it possible to sew after you got the baby? I'm afraid that I will have no spare time to make anything, I'm never good at time management.

At week #36.... I'm excited to meet my little girl!

Well! What is your plan for this summer sewing?



I really love to see your commets! It' made my day indeed!
