Imke

 

My mom bought me a copy of Sewing Clothes Kids Love for my birthday a few months ago and I’ve just now gotten around to making something from it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Presenting…Imke!

 

Now there are definitely some drawbacks to sewing with knits.  The sleeves were too short if I placed the pattern correctly on the grain so I had to turn them perpendicular to the grain and then hemming the sleeves got all wonky.  The pattern is very versatile-can be made long- or short-sleeved, layered look, pieced bodice or a simple bodice, hoodie or crew neck, and a very simple sleeve.  (I hate set-in sleeves).  I went to my favorite consignment store today and picked up a bunch of patterned long sleeve shirts and will be reconstructing them into Imkes for my DD.  Hope that she likes them!  There is a Flickr Group dedicated just to this book…check it out here.
