spring kcwc day 1
Here are the results from last night's Kid's Clothing Week Challenge efforts - a little peasant top and leggings for Ruby.
The top was made from the Sweet Little Dress pattern by Leila and Ben. I shortened it to tunic length and left the elastic off the sleeves to change things up a bit. The fabric is Amy Butler's Lotus Wall Flower in cherry.
The leggings are a Lil' Blue Boo pattern, which I lengthened, widened to a straight leg, and added decorative buttons at the ankles. A very fast pattern was made even easier by reusing an old pair of yoga pants, so I didn't even have to hem them. I love that.
Also, this photo is courtesy of my new camera, which arrived just this afternoon (yay!). Thanks for all the camera advice. I stuck with my trusty Canon PowerShot, but upgraded to the SX130 IS. I have only tested it a little bit so far, but it seems great! Sorry to disappoint you SLR diehards ... I just can't face the thought of one right now. I already haul two kids and an overloaded diaper bag everywhere I go ... I don't have the strength for a camera bag, too! :)
