Kids Clothes Week - Day 1!

Good day, all!

Did everyone get tons of sewing prep done this weekend?!  I know I did!

Let's jump right in!  My KCW posts are going to be short and sweet - I work full-time and usually take all my blog photos on the weekend, so these are going to be over-edited, early morning iPhone pics, k?  K.  :)

This is the Little Pleated Tunic by one of my all-time favorite pattern designers, Heidi & Finn.

Except in lieu of the center pleat, I cut the bottom pattern piece just about in the middle, and spread it apart about 2-3 inches to add side gathers.  Like so:

The fabric is a delicious ivory linen (I think it's a blend though - doesn't winkle as hardcore as 100% linen - hooray).  I bought this fabric at Joann's last summer!  They often have stuff just like this though... Linens or 'linen-look's.  It's such a dream to sew with.  

I love how right now it's a dress, but it will grow with her all summer, and probably be a top NEXT summer!  Excellent!
Ok, happy sewing all!  Gotta go!
