Kids Clothes Week Day 1

Monday, October 21, 2013

YAY for Kids Clothes Week!  I've been anxious to get back to sewing after our big move, and what better motivation than participating in the best sew-along there is!  The first couple of days will be all about some practical sewing because both my children have outgrown all their pyjamas.

Anja is modelling a pair of Alex and Anna Winter PJs from the Peekaboo Pattern Shop (affiliate link) in a size 3.  I love how they turned out!  You really can't go wrong as far as a super quick & easy pattern with satisfying results.  I added the little ducky on the front in contrasting striped jersey cotton/lycra knit for fun.

Another change I made from the original pattern was the waistband.  Using some cute contrasting elastic, I left it exposed by stretching it on the right side of the pants as I attached it.  

And how does my baby girl like them?  This face says it all!

Are you participating in KCW?  What are you working on?

  1. So happy to see a post from you! Hope your move went well and that you are getting settled in. Love the pjs! No sewing for day 1 here, but I'm cutting patterns for several dresses right now!

  2. She's such a cutie! Glad you had fun with the pattern :) I've made Will some with the exposed elastic too and it's a fun way to switch it up a bit!

  3. These are too cute! I really like the ducky. I love the pattern and have used it myself. I just finished two pairs of Fancy Pants leggings - too late to take photos - boo! Maybe an early morning photoshoot is in order :)

  4. Oh, that precious little face! Such cute pajamas, Heidi.

  5. Those are so cute. I love the duck and the contrast elastic. I'm finishing up the exact same pattern this morning. Wub wants to be Firestar for Halloween and I knew these jammies would be a perfect base.

  6. Hi Heidi!
    Great job on the pjs, very sweet! For KCW, I am working on an outfit (skirt, top and cardi) for my tween, and lots of jersey items for my little ones. Can I ask where you get your sewing tags done (or do you do them yourself?). I haven't had much luck so far with mine and they wrinkle really easily and the ink fades after just one wash.


  7. the cutest jammies! I'm working on a dress. I tried something and failed so I have to unpick the skirt from the bodice and try again, c'est la vie!

  8. So adorable!
    I love the duck applique and the color - she looks so comfy :)
