Kids Clothes Week: Mr. Roboto Skirt

This development has made it obvious to the both of us that a lot of toddler clothing lacks pockets. If by chance the item of clothing has pockets then either it is too hard for toddler hands to navigate, are just for show and hold little to nothing, or everything falls right back out once Pen really gets moving.

I had a very specific vision for the skirt which lead me to drafting a pattern myself. This is my first official clothing drafting project, if you don’t count making things from a series of rectangles. Or making tons of awful scrap fabric Barbie clothes as a kid.

With Kids Clothes Week in full swing, I thought it was the perfect time to use the robot themed leftovers from a baby blanket that I made for version 1.0. Everybody in the house loves robots!

    I can’t even with how cute this is. I love that skirt so much. I need this in kid and grown up sizes 😛 Also she is just too fricken adorable in her yellow boots and pigtails. Awesome job!
