Today is the first day of the Fall addition of Kids Clothes Week!
YAY! And Blergh! A few things to start. First, KCW often seems come right smack dab in the middle of all sorts of other chaos! Well, okay, I suppose that's just life! But really this week I've got a party I'm planning, a husband that's going away (for the second week in a row), Halloween costumes that I'm supposed to be making, and a sick kid! A sick kid on the first day of Fall KCW seems to be a thing around here...
Next, my kids really need clothes! Last week I did the whole wardrobe clothes shift from summer to winter and...Violet has zero pants that fit her, and only handful of skirts, shirts, and leggings! Fortunately many of her dresses are still fitting, except for the fact that they are too short and she needs leggings to go underneath them! And Henry, well, he still has plenty of pants that fit him, but none that he actually wants to wear! He finally realized that he likes these pants but only as pajama pants! He's destroyed these pants, but none the less they have become a staple!
So, I'm going to try my best to sew up a storm this week, but I can't really make any promises! My time today was spent putting together patterns and cutting them out...BORING! I did sort through some fabric to see what I had on hand. And, as I was doing so I came across a sweet dress from last year. One that Violet wore only once and then the zipper broke! (Darn you H&M!) I had, of course planned on fixing it, but never did. Now it's too small as a dress, but the fabric, corduroy foxes, was too sweet to part with...
Oh, and before I head on out to sew some more...I've got one more thing to share. I'm over on Inner Child Giving today sharing some tips for throwing a Paint Your Own Pumpkin Party! Including a free printable invite!
Head on over to check it out!
And Happy Sewing!
