KCW Day 2: Tiny Tourist Top

KCW day 2 collage

Technically it’s day 3 of Kid's Clothes Week here, but I’m playing a bit of catch up. I sewed this little linen peasant top yesterday but finished without enough daylight to adequately photograph it, hence I’m posting about it today.

It’s a simple sew in both style and fabric used, not unlike the beautiful linen I used to make it. I love that linen is both simple yet very beautiful. The simple peasant top style is one I’ve sewed many times before, using this free pattern (I sewed a size 2-3). I’ve added to the natural linen by stamping it with versacraft fabric ink and my camera stamp (it goes with the ‘traveling’ theme I think) and I hemmed it with some cream linen I had in my stash and used some vintage cotton on the sleeves. As well as trying to follow the theme this KCW, I’ve also tried to sew my stash (rather than buying new fabric for the projects) so, if you’re a long time follower of my blog you may recognise these three fabrics from here, here and here.

It was hard to get many good modelled pics of this little wiggly munchkin, and when she demanded her pillow during the photoshoot, I knew she was pretty tired and my window of opportunity was drawing to a close!

I haven’t started my hour of sewing today and have a couple of loose ideas… perhaps it’s time I turned my attention to Noah or Isabelle!

What are you sewing?

Way to make a simple project something special! The stamped cameras are great! Certainly fits the theme I think.

I love the stamping you did on the fabric. What a fun idea!
