Kids Clothes Week: Penguins!

Kids Clothes Week is here! As Pen would say “Wee-hoo”. With “toys” as the theme I’ve gotten all sorts of ideas. Most I’ll probably never get to this week but I did finish two things today! Wee-hoo!

Before I knew of theme, I actually had purchased a penguin print fabric along with my last Mabel Madison order knowing how much the kids loved a certain stuffed penguin. With “toys” being the theme I thought it was the perfect time to use the fabric.

Stop the presses! I did not use the Recess Raglan pattern to make Seb a shirt. I actually had the Anytime At All Tee by Shwin Designs printed because I wanted to use part of it to make some sort of hybrid top for Seb. Since I was using a Shwin pattern for Pen’s penguin dress, I thought it would be fun to use a Shwin pattern for Seb as well.

I’ve made him the Helter Skelter Tee during a previous kids clothes week and I like Shwin’s boys patterns just fine. The Anytime At All Tee is no exception. I’m just a sucker for a good raglan and default to making a raglan over a regular t-shirt. I am really fond of how this shirt came together, so maybe this is a sign of things to come?

Like the Recess Raglan is my “go to” top for Seb, the Glass Onion Top has become the pattern I default to when I want to make something for Pen. The back on my version I modified from the original design, with a one piece gathered back and a higher scoop. I also adapted to dress length and slimmed the sleeves. The higher scoop and the slim sleeves work because I used knit fabrics. I do not recommend it with a woven like the pattern was originally designed for.

It has been awhile since I tried grabbing a non-candid picture of both the kids and let me tell you herding cats might have been a lot easier. The kids are just as wild as their stuffed animals…

    I’ve been eyeing that penguin fabric for a while now – I LOVE it mixed with the stripes!! And I love the mods to the Glass Onion! What a sweet little dress!

    Love!!! All of it =) The penguins are so cute and those blues are fab on your kids. I love all of their antics too. Awesome makes!

    Very sweet. I really like the pics of your happy kids. I can see that your blog will quickly get one of my favs. Glad that I found you through PRP.

    I love the action shots!! (but let’s be real here, any photos of kid are “action shots” unless they’re sleeping ;)) I’ve never heard of the glass onion dress – I’ll have to look that up! Recess raglan though we see MUCH of in this home šŸ˜‰
