Back to School Sewing

It’s back to school time, are your kids ready? (For my kids, this means at least 1 new outfit if nothing else!) This year I got to make them outfits using patterns from the Project Run & Play shop and fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.

I sewed an entire outfit for 4 of my kids, and they helped choose the fabrics and patterns themselves! Let’s start with the oldest:

She’s growing up to be quite a fashionable young lady! She chose the Chromium Cropped Hoodie made with botany floral french terry fabric for her top and the Stoplight pencil skirt made with charcoal grey french terry and mustard french terry fabrics for the bottom. These fabrics are absolutely the softest thing ever and I’m totally jealous of her getting to wear this outfit!

The only change we made to either of these patterns was to add an additional side stripe to the Stoplight pencil skirt just for the fun of it! And the cropped hoodie with the side vent pairs so nicely with it too. The proportions are just right!

These boys still LOVE to coordinate their outfits! They chose the Lemon Tee on top and the Prose Cargo Pants made with black rayon linen fabric. I did modify the Prose Cargo Pants to have a zip fly front at their request.

David wanted his Lemon Tee made out of notebook paper and rust red cotton jersey fabrics. It turned out so good, and is very soft and cozy to wear he tells me.

Lowell fell in love with the vintage locomotion and royal blue cotton jersey fabrics for his Lemon Tee. Good choices too!

Finally, little Tina had to get in on the back to school action too! She immediately chose the Risu Dress sewn up in Splatter Paint cotton jersey fabric with royal blue trim.

It’s that faux wrap cross back feature of this dress that’s my favorite! She chose the “spaint splat” fabric as she loves to create art in our school.

Plus that royal blue jersey just makes her eyes shine! And the softness of this dress just makes me want to hug her all day long…
