KCW Oct 2013: Day 2

Liberty leggings

Have I been hanging out since having Pipi to dress Isabelle and her and in matching outfits? Um, yes! And how cute do they look?

I’m pretty sure that these little leggings justified cutting into my much prized Liberty of London knit fabric! (I got my fabric online from this store in the UK – which has great prices on lots of liberty fabric by the way, and the shipping is pretty reasonable.)

For the patterns; I self drafted Pipi’s pair and for Isabelle’s I used my old staple – the pattern from Growing up Sew Liberated. I’m still using the size 2 for my almost 3 year old as she still fits the old pairs I made her in this size and is just finishing up wearing bulky nappies, but I just lengthened it a bit by adding cuffs and a yoga style waist band (which was also partly mostly because I couldn’t find my waist elastic).


Oh I love those toes!

As mentioned in an earlier post, I have been going a bit slower this KCW, the sewing is going ok (apart from no time to sew on day 1) – but I’m finder it harder to get the photos and write the blog posts. 

I’ve also made a top for Noah (for day 3); I was going to add this is this post – a kind of day 2-3 combo, but it would have been photo overload! … Speaking of photos, my older 2 are proving more difficult to photograph … good thing they still look cute even when uncooperative! (See below!)

I love the leggings! And matching outfits :) If I had 2 girls it would be dangerous. Even though I have a boy and a girl I still try, I'm planning matching pjs for winter :)

I have a couple of metres of liberty knit and just can't bring myself to cut into it. Seeing this makes me want to try. Totally cute!!
