Coral Dress - Spring KCWC

I have had this light gauzy cotton shirt for a while and it just didn't fit me properly. Time for a refashion. I don't think I have made anything pink yet for Lola and she'll be three soon. Although close, this doesn't count as pink for me as it's a deep, gorgeous coral colour.

I love an easy refashion!
Thanks for reading!

Plaid Skirt for KCWC

I'm hoping I have found my sewing mojo. I joined the KCWC: Kids Clothes Week Challenge over at Elsie Marley.

I don't think I had touched my machine since January when I made a few neck warmers. Yesterday I made Lola an A-Line skirt with a woolly plaid fabric I had in my stash. I decided to cut the skirt on the bias but cut the waistband on the grain. At the last minute, I decided to hem it with bright yellow bias tape which matches the yellow in the fabric. It's about a size 2.

Boy does she have spirit!
