As with every change of season, I look through my children’s clothing to find everything looks horrible, tatty and a tad too small. I’ve been slowly building a new wardrobe for Adele, some photos have been negotiated, but not all have been possible. Stubborn child!
A long sleeve Go To Signature dress using jersey remnants. She loves the pocket and the fabric hides most of the crap she constantly drops down her front.
Another Go To Dress using a lovely knit from The Remnant Warehouse purchased here. This time I included a hood, which she is quite in love with. The contrast fabric was also from The Remnant Warehouse in the $1 bins out the front – bargain!
Another toddler cowl neck dress – I’ve made this pattern a few times before and it’s a definite winner. Adele chose the fabric herself, which is also from The Remnant Warehouse.
A maxi skirt. Yes this is very age appropriate! I think every 3 year old should own a maxi skirt… Well, maybe not, but the child has been begging for one since I made my own
. I drafted this myself and used a remnant for the outer and fully lined it in pink jersey for a little more substance. Needless to say this is her favourite new item. And for the record – Yes, it drags on the ground when she rides her mini ride on bike thing…
Jarmies – This is just one of 4 pairs that I’ve made for the child. Two are like this and were made with a large piece of Holly Hobby cotton jersey that I scored from the Op Shop for $1. I made another jersey pair in stripes and another flannelette pair made with full collar and button down placket, but I can’t get a photograph of them as they are on such high rotation and always creased from after the wash.
Other un photographed items include the 5 pairs of leggings made from remnants including some merino. They are incredibly boring really, but totally necessary.
Hopefully that will sort out Adele for a little while longer. While it is cost effective to make clothes for her using remnants, it can be a little boring 🙂
