Another simple and fun sew for the girls today. The Folks over at Love Notions Patterns  are up for today and we are looking at the skater skirt. This girls pattern features sizes 2T to 16, a yoga band type waist and 2 length options. Perfect on its own or you could pair it with your favorite bodice to make a particularly comfortable and cute dress.  Another quick sew this one was about 10-15 min from print to wear. I opted to skip hemming on this one as I once again forgot to add length for my tall 2 year...

This one is a new pattern for me not only had I never tried it but I had never even heard of it before it was suggested for this series.  Itch to Stich's Uvita Top.  Kind of a fun name, Right?  Being unsure about it I didn't want to use my precious customs stash that is dwindling so quickly, so I opted for a panel and one of our Heathered solids.

Now I really want one for myself and all ready wrote it on my selfish...

Day 16 is another basic wardrobe staple for the younglings in your life. Ragamuffins offers not 1 but 2 free raglan patterns in sizes 2T - 12. The difference between the two is one is slightly less boxy in the bodice. Both have multiple sleeve options too. I made one of each style both in 3T. I follow the pattern as instructed with one exception. That was I decided to do an extra row of top stitching on the sleeves of the ragamuffin raglan.  Both came out super adorable. The renegade I used one of the bear panels and our...
