Fall Kids Sewing

It’s still in the high 70s or 80s each day, so my kids haven’t needed any of the fall clothes I’ve sewn them so far, but I have lots of sewing plans in the next few months, so I tried to get all the fall sewing out of the way. My kids are pretty good for tops. All they needed was pants and some cardigans to help with the warm to cold transition. My son got one store-bought pair of pants and a mom-made pair. The girls each got two handmade pairs. The gray pants are the Twisted Trousers from Titchy Threads, made with board short fabric on the outside and lined with a thin knit I had lying around. The pink and blue pants are the Jalie Eleonore Pull on pants, made from nicer quality ponte from Joann Fabrics.

I had fun making the cardigans for the girls. My oldest got a lightning bolt cardigan (a nod to Harry Potter, which she read this summer) from a Little Lizard King pattern, and the younger one got a pink sweater knit Seville Cardigan from New Horizons Designs. They both got white cardigans from a Blaverry pattern, and I used the Blissful Blazer pattern from Love Notions to make them each a snazzy looking knit blazer.

I also have been hard at work on two other projects. First, I’m in the middle of testing my newest pattern and should have it up by the end of the week! Second, my son’s first birthday is coming up and I decided to make a slipcover for our kid-sized armchair. So far I’ve finished the slipcover and need to make the cushion. I’m super happy with the results! I’ll have more pictures when it’s completely done.
