Kids Clothing Week - Day 1

Kids Clothing Week seems to always come around at a time that is just not possible for me to be involved. I usually try to make at least one thing but the whole concept of 'sew for one hour a day for 7 days for your kids' is just lost on me with working 4 days a week, juggling basketball training, games, ballet or whatever else we have going on.

So this week I'm totally organised. Ok I may have cheated a little and made most (all!) of it ahead of time but I've at least tried, right?

Each day I will be sharing what I have created. All are basic, wardrobe staples as for me it was about maximising the number of clothes I could create (spending 30 minutes on some pjs or 3 hours on a dress???) and also I think Miss 5's wardrobe will explode if I make another dress (I did though). I'm also forward planning so some items are for now and some for spring/summer which (hopefully) will be here before we know it!

Day 1 - Ananda Pants by Chopstix Patterns

So day one, I share another pair of Ananda pants. I blogged a pattern review back in May here. I made two pairs for Miss 5 as she really loves the fit of these.

Showing off the roll over waist.
She choose this material herself from my stash. It is one I picked up from an op shop (thrift store) along with a bunch of other fabric for about $10 so these pants probably cost me about $1. Bargain! I made a dress last year for her with this as well, so I hope she doesn't try to wear them together as that would all be a bit too matchy matchy!

She does call them her 'dancy pants'!

Are you joining in with Kids Clothing Week? I can't wait to share all my creations with you.

kid's clothes week


  1. Very cute. I had plans to join in but thought it was next week. Will see how I go

  2. I keep hearing about KCW but never have the time to do it. Your young Miss looks very happy with the new pants.

  3. I'm hoping to join in with KCW this time around but I will never too those $1 pants :)

  4. This is my first KCW, I always forget that it is on. I'm doing my sewing this week but everything is cut/pinned etc etc ready to go otherwise I'd get nothing done. I seem to waist an hour when I first enter my sewing space just soaking up that essence of being a kid free for five minutes... by the time I sit down to actually sew it's usually mum time again haha :/

  5. I made a pair of those pants after you posted them last time, they're so easy to wear they're great. $1 for fabric, SCORE!!
