Mulberry Pullover Fleece Hoodie

Willow & Co. Mulberry Tunic by nest full of eggs
 I finished my third and last Kids Clothes Week garment! This is the Mulberry Tunic by Olga of Kid Approved. I made it into a pullover fleece hoodie without a closure. It's super soft and cozy and easy to get on and off. I'm so pleased with how quickly and nicely this came together.

 I folded over the front bodice pieces too much, so the front bodice pieces don't overlap as much as they are suppose to. This also means that the hood came right up to the edge of the front bodice pieces. This was totally my mistake and no fault with the pattern/instructions. But I still really like how it turned out!

Sunday picnic dress

Sunday picnic dress by nest full of eggs
 More Kids Clothes Week sewing. My second garment is complete. I had the pleasure of sewing up a new pattern by Suz of sewpony called the Sunday picnic dress. There are many options with the pattern and I decided to sew a sleeveless, collarless one without buttons. This dress includes some of my favorite details with little girl dresses: invisible zipper, pockets, and piping.

 I actually did iron the hem, it just looks like I didn't. The only change I would make with this dress is that I think it would look really nice with piping around the armholes and it would be something that would be easy to add. I had fun working with border fabric with this one and come to think of it, I think this is the first time I've ever used border fabric??

Well things are looking really good for my KCW list. I had a goal of sewing up three garments. Two of the three are done so far and the third and last one is cut out. I'm working on a Mulberry Tunic which I hope to get done in the next few days. Back to sewing!
