Stop growing, children.
Since that's not really going to happen, I pulled out my trusty Old Navy coupon and did a little online shopping. A little of this:
are headed to my house in a matter of days. But, clearly, I can't let Old Navy and Target handle all of my children's clothing needs, so in case you are interested, here is my sewing plan for fall clothes. I'm sticking with a few Oliver and S patterns that I already have, but I'm pulling out the big guns with denim and knits! Why are knits so scary? Anyway, here's what Cara and I picked out at Joann's on Monday:
The pink and purple print and the solid purple are both going to be more Sailboat tops for Cara (obviously), but I have to confess that I really hope there will be enough fabric left over to piece together a Renfrew top for me.
Those little monster rock stars kill me. Another Sailboat Top, I think. And that dark denim is going to become matching Sailboat pants and skirt. Denim feels scary to me too because everybody buys denim; I'm afraid it will look too homemade, if that makes sense.
My favorite piece is this purple floral corduroy:
which is going to become another Bubble dress. This has been one of my favorite patterns that I have made, and I think it will be a perfect lightweight fall dress.
I'm still looking for a cute jon-jon or overall pattern for Colin. Any suggestions?
