This weeks project

Is to turn this hideous 90’s chambray skirt

into this cute 1970’s playsuit for the big kid.

The Sewing for Children Contest is on again over at Pattern Review and it is always a good way to get motivated to getting some things made for the kids.

While the skirt is pretty horrible, the fabric is lovely and soft and faded which is why I bought it in the first place. And with the pattern and the skirt both purchased from the op shop, it looks like the elastic and thread will be the most expensive part of the garment!
