First day of Kids Clothes Week! (for me, at least…)

Yes, so…..sewing? Let’s talk ’bout that. Cause it’s fun.

I am straight up addicted to the GO TO Leggings pattern (affiliate link). It takes me roughly 1/2 hour now to make a pair. Shazam! that’s fast. I got this obnoxiously awesome (it’s ok if you don’t like it, but I DO) granny knit fabric from my sponsor Girl Charlee awhile ago.It’s the perfect weight for leggings, and I had just enough to cut out a pair for Ava-so hopefully I can get those sewn up too this week!

Kinda funny note: I sewed this whole outfit for Charlotte. 3T leggings and 4T top (more on the top in a sec). But she erm…doesn’t quite get photo shoots lately.

She basically wiggles her butt for me until I give up.

Luckily the Sadester is a teeny thing and fit into them just fine…and she’s got modeling skillz, yo.

Ok, so the top. It’s Kate’s new pattern-the Pippa Peplum! You saw my Penelope Peplum, this is the girls version. So cute, right? I love it. I used some grey knit that has awesome metallic gold dots on it…again from Girl Charlee, again not in stock anymore. again, sad face- ๐Ÿ™

ย  She can own almost any outfit. You go girl. Keep that skill as long as you can.

She’s comfortable in front of the camera….

But this is her normal look. She’s our shy little gal and we love her!


  1. How adorable! I love the material on the shirt…makes me won’t to sew one. I don’t have a little girl and I am pretty sure my son wouldn’t appreciate one ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the leggings!

  2. Get out of here with that adorable outfit! Every time I see someone post this peplum, I want to make it for myself. This one is adorable and your little one is super sweet. Great job!

  3. Adorable! I love the top – I made a dress out of that same fabric, but it had silver dots. I love the leggings too!

  4. Ooh, call on me! I know! In like Flynn refers to movie star Errol Flynn, who was known for his success with the ladies and his nefarious ways.

  5. Wow! I hadn’t seen this pattern yet, I think that it needs to be added to my list. And I love the gold dots – just enough sparkle but toned down with the grey. Nice work!

  6. Wow, I just blogged about my penelope top using exactly same knit fabric with Sadie’s pippa pepulum! Wow. Yes, this fabric is awesome. I think I need to get pippa pattern too ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. True that about Sadie’s modelling skills ๐Ÿ™‚
    That Sadester is a heartbreaker!

  8. As always, simply adorable! Both Sadie and the outfit ๐Ÿ™‚
    As for the saying, check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_like_Flynn – definitely sleezy!

  9. Lovin the way she wears the headband!

  10. Ooo, I love it!! I was thinking of doing a Pippa peplum too, at least it’s only Wednesday, there are plenty of more days to sew. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did a Nessie Top for my KCW Day 2, and it turned out so great! This is the second time I’ve used this pattern and I love it so much! I meant to email you after I made the first one. You nailed it with the hi low hem, and the swing-y shape, I just love it! I just noticed that you have Flickr so I’ll add it there too. (You know the drill during KCW, so many places to link up your work- KCW site, IG, Flickr, oh yeah the blog… ๐Ÿ™‚ But it’s all part of the fun, right?

    Take care!

  11. That peplum top is majorly cute! As is Sadie. =)

  12. So cute Jess! I have no idea what “In like Flynn” really means either. ha. GREAT print on those leggings. I’m floral/knit obsessed lately!

  13. so funny you had her model charlotte’s duds! super cute though, it is amazing how the older gals sort of “get it” (though O seems to be getting with the program more lately, haha). loooove those polka dots.
