Sewing for Kindergarten
This year the twins started kindergarten. How am I doing you ask? I'm an emotional wreck. I still get a little teary eyed as I watch them walk away at morning drop off. Taking it one day at a time.
A & E attend private school and must follow a strict dress code. Yay for uniforms! I was so excited about the uniforms that I did not sew or buy the kids any new clothing for the Fall. As you can imagine, this made getting dressed on the weekends a little difficult. So, I jumped at the opportunity to participate in Mie's Sewing for Kindergarten Series.
Over the summer I've been working on a few new items for the pattern shop. E is wearing one of the muslins for the button front gathered yoke dress I designed. The fabric just might be the softest chambray I've ever felt. It feels like its been washed a dozen times. I paired the dress with her favorite Saltwater sandals. I will add boots, tights and a cardigan for the cooler months ahead.
I sewed E a bunch of garments. And because sometimes the best made plans don't always go the way you expect them, I did not get the chance to photograph all the looks. Between the rainy weather and my day job, I had to push photographing the looks to the last minute. E had several melt downs from the time I picked her up from school to about ten minutes prior to snapping these photos. I think the poor child is sleep deprived! Up until the start of kindergarten A & E napped daily. Apparently naps are optional at E's school and she chooses not to nap --- which makes the hours between 4 and 7 pm a nightmare for the rest of us.
I'll photograph the remaining looks over next week or so and share them via Instagram. Be sure to check out the other series participants. I'm heading over to Chelise Patterson to see what she made! While you're over there check out Chelise's Make the Crayon's Post, its kind of a big deal ;)
