the rest of Kids Clothes Week Fall 2013

by lowbeamstudios

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.
