Kids clothing week challenge follow-up October 31, 2012

Posted by Judy in Musings, Sewing projects.

Okay, I know it’s been 3 weeks since the challenge started, which means it ended two weeks ago. I’m gonna go ahead and cut myself some slack. I had a GIANT list AND I have a newborn (READ: I’m always tired or nursing!) But, I’m pleased to say that I got most of the things on my list crossed off.

Here’s the list with the completed items crossed off. The ones bolded and crossed off are ones that I decided didn’t need to be made.

For DS1
– a winter vest
a dressy winter coat
– 2-3 long-sleeved shirts
1 dress shirt
5 undershirts
– 2 pajama shirts
5-6 pairs of baby legs

For DD
– a winter vest
3-4 long-sleeved shirts
– 5 undershirts

1 sweater
1 dress
– 5-6 pairs of baby legs

For DS2
– honestly, he has so much stuff he doesn’t really NEED anything. But I can’t just leave him out, so I’ll probably make him a long-sleeved shirt or two.
– oh, right, he needs about 5 undershirts

For DS3
a fall jacket that fits him now (as opposed to the 3-6 month size that is giant on him!)
– 2-4 pairs of pants

So basically I just need to make 2 vests and 2 pajama shirts, and their fall/winter wardrobe is done!

I celebrated today by finally finishing up a nursing shirt whose pieces were all cut out and just waiting to be sewn together. And I started cutting out the pieces for a fleece jacket for myself. I bought the pattern last fall, fitted the pattern, then never got around to making it. I didn’t want fall to disappear again without it getting made. Of course, at this rate, the cut pieces will sit around on my cutting table for a few weeks before getting sewn together! *sigh*
