KCWC Days 7

By yesterday, I had reached the point in the week where there were several things that I wanted to make for the childrens wardrobes. but nothing that I HAD to make.

Unsure what to make next, I asked Rascal what she wanted.
It was no surprise when she said that she asked for another dress, I smiled as I had just the fabric for it, but I asked if she would like to choose what material I used. We went and looked together and guess what? She picked the fabric that I had in mind- patterned corduroy with owls on it.

I will admit that I had plans to use a different pattern for this dress, but once I printed it out, I realised that the bodice was going to be too wide for Rascal. It would've been fairly easy to alter it, but I was feeling lazy and honestly couldn't see the point of risking disaster when I knew that the other pattern works so well.

Then I sort of lost motivation.

I sat and looked at the fabric and couldn't get up the enthusiasm to cut into it (does anybody else get that?) Once the fabric is cut, I am away and running, but until then its sometimes a battle to get started.

When I finally started to sew, it was an easy sew and Rascal is very happy with the results. Unfortunately, the only photos that I have of it are dodgy badly lit nighttime photos and a couple of blurry photos of an excited girl before she went to preschool this morning. Here is the best of a bad bunch.

Today, I must admit that I'm struggling to find the motivation to sew childrens clothes, I really want to get on and start making stock for market, so I think I'm going to move onto the next thing on my long list of things that need to be sewn. I have really really enjoyed the challenge of making all these clothes for my children and have loved seeing their faces when they try each new piece on.
What I achieved this week!

If you are tempted to sew clothes for your children, hop over to the KCWC Flickr group and have a look at all the beautiful clothes that have been created this week and believe me- if we can do it, you can do it too!


  1. Oh my goodness...such creativity! Can't believe you got that done in a week...i have only just managed to finish some cord pants and jumpers for the twins after a few weeks!
    I find the pattern laying and cutting to be the most tedious task so i usually doa pile of cutting first and then i can just sew as i get the time (which doesn't seem to be often unfortunately!)
    I love that girls love owls...and i have been looking for a dress pattern very similar to that...did you draw it up yourself?
    Thanks for sharing your lovely work!

  2. Wow you did such a great job and achieved loads for KCWC week! Love them all! Gorgeous :)

  3. WELL DONE!! I say it all the time, but you are so good juliet! you have come so far in your sewing! Practice makes perfect? any other helpful tips?

  4. Oh yes I also lose motivation.... this week has been a real kick up my bum! Love the dress... she chose well!

  5. I love today's dress, such a great fabric! really good job this week! See you in fall?

  6. Hi victor ,
    they have actually made a new solution called super dmz 2.0 and it truly
    is nevertheless on the market and legal
    so do you consider it could be protected for me to
    work with for my age depending on the authentic super dmz?
