Happy Homemade and Simple Sewing For Kids.
Cindy sent me more lovely images of her children wearing Tessuti creations made up from Japanese pattern books. For Imogen, Liberty Lantana cotton/wool Junya Shirako Pink was chosen to make up a pretty smock dress - Pattern E from Happy Homemade Kids Vol.2. Cindy cut the 110cm size for Imogen, who is turning 5 this month. This sweet dress is trimmed with black/white gingham binding trim and hot pink topstitching. Cindy also made up a little pair of pants for Ethan in a black wool and cotton denim that she bought last year from Tessuti Chatswood. This fabric washes really well and looks adorable with his old man cardi from Seed. The pant pattern is from Simple Sewing For Baby by Lotta Jansdotta, which is full of very cute and simple patterns for babies.
