KCW Day 1

It's Kid's Clothes Week this week and I'm joining in for the first time! The theme is Travelling this season and I'm making a very liberal interpretation of the theme. 

I'll be'll be travelling around new (to me) pattern designers and visiting pattern stores I've never been to before! As with all holidays, I'll be stopping in at some old favourites on the way home! 

Over the weekend my 2.5 year old said the words I had been dreading all her life "mummy, I want to be a pwincess". I'm not ashamed to admit that part of me was disappointed - I was hoping to skip this stage, but here we are! 

My kids sewing ethos is 'Made for Play' so sewing "pwincess" clothing is not my deal!! At all!! 

A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of the CkC Nadia dress - simple, quick and gorgeous, without all the frou frou 

It was my first ever CkC pattern, I must admit they're not by normal style and I'd not heard great things about their patterns but I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out! 

My little missy is pretty pleased with her new dress too 


  1. What a fun dress! Look at all the twirl!

    1. She's started calling it her twirly wirly- I made the skirt two x width of fabric so it's nice and twirly xx
