KCWC - Paris Shirt


ParisShirt2

I've been playing along with the Kids Clothes Week Challenge this week, challenging myself to sit down and sew for at least an hour a day for a week, and I actually have a finished shirt for the toddler!  Major back patting was going on this morning as I relearned how to make, and then accomplished, four button holes.  I really feel like there should be a certificate for mastering that skill on your sewing machine.  The main fabric has a map of Paris on it.  I actually have bought a few different Paris fabrics for this child because we went there when I was just barely pregnant with her and the two are connected in my mind.  The pattern I have made before (still for sale in her etsy shop), but this time I made the shirt version instead of a dress.  The main thing that KCWC has brought me is a ton of adorable patterns now lined up that I want to make.  So much inspiration in their flickr pool!
