KCW Oct 2015: Matching Liberty Leggings

Yay, Kid's Clothes Week is here again! You know that week, 4 times a year where some of us go crazy sewing heaps of things for our kids for new season. Here in NZ we are in the midst of Spring, and I can’t think of anything that says Spring more than Liberty florals. Can you?

In an ode to one of my previous KCW sew (Oct 2013), (wow exactly 2 years ago), I decided to once again make my girls matching Liberty leggings.

By now in my sewing career I’ve sewn many a pair of leggings, so the sew went well – quick and easy. The photography, not so much! Is it too much to ask to have both girls smiling in one shot?! It turned out alright in the end, once an ice block bribe was in play!

The pattern I used was my old staple – the pattern from the book Growing up Sew Liberated. I sewed Isabelle the size 4 and Pipi the size 2.

I didn’t exactly follow the theme of ‘disguise’ this time ‘round’ – but one could argue that the beautiful Liberty floral ‘disguises’/ conceals my sewing scissors quite nicely! (See second pic from the top.)

Joining in with Kid's Clothes Week.

Are you playing along?

Love the fabric, I actually never sewed with Liberty yet, although I always read very popular stories about it. Maling leggings is just great, amazing how you van make a pair of trouwers that quickly!

Cute! I always love your sewing. Clean and modern, but still classic. Great basics!
