the rest of Kids Clothes Week Fall 2013
I had two more finishes this week: a Meridian Cardi and a not-so-skinny Flashback Tee dress.
The Meridian Cardi is sewn in a bright pink floral jersey (perfectly suited for a seven year old) from my Grandmother’s most recent bunch of hand-me-downs. It reverses to a solid white jersey and closes with a sew-in-snap hidden by a cupcake button. I helped in testing the women’s Meridian Cardi, which is soon to be released, and received a complimentary kids version. Both versions are assembled quickly and perfect cardigans for the cooler fall weather. Hidden underneath the cardigan is a modified Skinny Tee sewn in Heather Ross’s Briar Knits. To make an a-line dress I angled the side seams out starting at the armpit and added length to the original pattern.
