kids clothes, sewing with knits

sparkly knit tank

Awe, this is such a cute tank!  I drafted it up the other day using another one of Emily’s tanks for a reference.  I wanted something swingy, something longer(ish), and with a little pocket.  I think I did pretty well for a first try.

I really love a cute tank, especially on little girls.  And Emily loves the pocket, it was so funny to see her poke her finger inside and be excited about it.  Totally cute.  I really want to savor every moment lately!  It seems like they’re growing up so fast!

Sorry this has turned into knit sewing central lately, hopefully you don’t mind too much.  I get really jazzed once the weather turns nice around here and actually feel the need to make clothes!  And summer is always a fun time to make stuff to wear!

Last week of school!

Gold dot knit: Girl Charlee

    The tank top is cute and your daughter adorable, especially the skinned knee! Aahh brings back memories of the first day of summer vacation walking barefoot on the hot sidewalk!!
    I sewed lots of cotton peasant tops for myself when I was in high school, many years ago! Easy, fun, comfortable!!!

    Oh I love! How cute would that fabric be using the Seafarer Top pattern?!? I just purchased it but havent been able to decide which knit fabric to use ( I have only sewn for my two sweets and never for myself). I think I will head to Girl Charlee right now!
