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.










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.
