KCW: Pink Stallions!

I really wanted to sew along with kids clothes week this time 
cause I had the perfect fabrics for the theme – Wild Things.
But I had to do my sewing last week because my in-laws will be visiting this week.
I managed to finish what I had planned and today I’ll share Anitas wild thing outfit.
If you read my last post you might remember that I said my next post would also 
feature patterns from Jennuine Design.
Tada!
Here you have the Haven Acres Blouse and the Dressage Leggings.

Pink stallions are pretty wild, right?!
And riding pants too?!
I made both a size 5.  The top fits perfect I think, but the leggings are a bit to big.
But I don’t mind cause I’m hoping for a really warm summer and if I get my wish they
wont be worn much until fall.  So fingers crossed!
I didn’t use the elastic for the sleeves because my local fabric store didn’t have
the right width on stock, but I think they look nice with out it as well.
I wanted to hold on to the length of the blouse so I hemmed it with bias tape.
For the blouse I used Mustang in pink from cotton + steel.  I bought mine from
The Laughing House.  It doesn’t look like she has this color in stock anymore,
but she has lots of nice fabrics and great customer service.
For the leggings I used fabric from my local fabric stores, the pink is from
Kreaktive (they are not online) and the denim color is from stoff og stil.
The patterns are both easy to follow and well written.
The leggings are not a fast sew, at least not for me.
But they are totally worth the time!

Now if only Anita could go riding with auntie Ásta in her new riding clothes!
Next up is Viktor.
Love
Dagbjört.

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
