Hey, Hey, Hey, how excited are you about school starting back!?!??! Ok, I realize that some of you are half way through your school year, or that you are one of the lucky few with year round school. But here in the North Eastern part of the good ol' USA I am counting down the days until all three of my babies go to school - and 2 of those are starting full day Kindergarten - WOOOHOOOOO!!!! But that count down also means, that my count down to back to school clothing is ON!
We had a thread in the FB group the other day about who we sew for and why. Each of my kids has a reason why store bought clothes just aren't perfect, and that is a large part of why I sew for them. But I also tend to love the looks of things from stores I can't afford, like Mini Boden, J Crew, Nordstroms, and Burberry (and let's not even delve into the single name designers and European collections that I fall in love with). So, by sewing for them I get to make things which actually fit, and make them things within my budget.
As I was searching this year to find out what my kiddos needed for back to school, I quickly came to see that there weren't many lists that covered clothes. I guess that is probably because it can depend so much on climate, what age the child is, and what the dress code rules within the school are. But, I still wanted something where I could make sure that I was generally on track with what they have in their closets. So I came up with two lists, one for girls, one for boys. Pin them, print them, use them, or ignore them ;o)
Make sure to join the WWDFun FB group so that you don't miss out on any of the fun tips, tricks, and add ons I have to go with these patterns this month!!! And of course I always want to see what you are sewing, so share pics and let me ohhh and ahhh!
