KCWC Day 1 {A Fall Skirt}

Well, hello friends! It’s been awhile since I posted but that’s ’cause I’ve been busy with KCWC sewing!

For those of you who don’t know what KCWC is, it’s the Kids Clothes Week Challenge, hosted by Elsie Marley. The basic challenge is to sew kids clothes for one hour every day of the week. You can work on one pattern, or many, it’s up to you! 

This is my first project for KCWC. I started it on Sunday night and finished Monday morning.

The Sewing
I created the pattern for this skirt myself, way too late at night and didn’t measure Abby’s waist ahead of time. As a result, it came out too big. So big, in fact, that you won’t even see pictures of her in it! I tried it on her and it fell right off. Oops. I guess she will be wearing this next Fall.

The Fabric
I used a mid-weight grey linen that I bought from Tex Carmel in the LA Fabric District. The bias tape trim came from the leftovers of my Bias and Buttons dress. Something had to be done with all those beautiful bits of fabric!

I just love this button, don’t you? I do not, however, like the fact that I sewed the waistband to this skirt with white thread. Seriously, what was I thinking? All I can say in my defense is: I was sewing at midnight.

Sorry I don’t have more pictures for you. I’m posting these in a rush tonight because I cut out another pattern earlier instead of typing this up. And now it’s LATE.

Thanks for reading, friends! More tomorrow!
