Jammies. Every year I make them whether they need them or not. Well, J. always needs them, K. not so much. (In fact, she has so many choices that it sometimes results in tears at the end of the day because she's too tired to decide!). K.'s are McCalls M4646. This pattern is so huge, I've been making the same size (size 3!) for ages, and just adding more length each year.
K. wore this playtime dress for three days straight so I'm glad I got it finished. The fabric is a Michael Miller knit and it was a steal from Fabricland at around $3.50/m.
A couple of months ago, my mom put the word out to her friends that I was always looking for buttons. Several of them have sent some pretty fabulous collections my way and K. is always almost as excited as me when they arrive. When she found this one, she told me it had to go on the next thing I made her so she was thrilled to see it, even if it doesn't have any function.
I had planned for this hopscotch shirt to be a pj top and I was going to make pj pants but K. told me in no uncertain terms that she wouldn't wear pj pants (I should already know this -- she didn't wear the ones I made last year or any of the ones that J. has grown out of). So this top is pretty bland but that might work well as she's got lots of colour in her wardrobe already, including these playtime leggings (also in the cheap-o Michael Miller knit). It is so hard to get a picture of her these days when she's not being a clown! She insisted the water bottle stay in the picture!
Finally, a linen tea party ruffle skirt for J. The tutorial was originally posted on From an Igloo but it seems to not be available anymore. Way back in 2010, it was one of the first tutorials I found and the skirt I made J. from it was one of her favourites for a long time. And J. was impressed with this one, too: I make lots of things for the girls and things that are much more complicated than this but she asked me twice if I actually made the skirt or if I bought it :).
So although I didn't finish all that I had planned, I think the stuff I did get done will be worn. Success!
