By now, I hope you can all relate to the feeling of ‘Better late than never‘, so without further delay here’s my KCW July 2014 recap (sorry for the delay 😉 ).
For the Summer challenge, I favored simple summer dresses that, hopefully, will be making their way into fall (thinking about adding a cardigan an socks to achieve a warmer look).
The Geranium dress by Rae was first on my list, and it was just the right pattern to use a darling stripe print from the back of my stash (btw did you know this is my husband favorite of this series?):
A couple of favorites were also included – both from the Children’s Corner – and these were such easy projects: I knew exactly what prints and trims to use and the outcome was exactly was expected: dresses that remind me how lovely little girls look when dressed like little girls.
The Mamie is quite full and looked wonderful in red and blue plaid:
And she looked so lovely in her Liberty Frannie (confession: she already wore this to a family christening and was absolutely amazing):
On the last day of KCW July 2014, I broke my “sew only patterns I already know” rule and tried a new pattern from Citronille: the Rosamée dress:
Of course, there were also some smarter looks, like the Clover shorts and the Fawn Lily tunic combo that got great reviews from my girl. Definitely a combo that I need to be sewing more often for her.
Obviously, it was more than enough for one week (that also included kids and office work), but I had so many more planned …
Luckily for me, fall KCW is just around the corner 🙂
