This time around however, KCW is the same week as the last week of school term, so I should be able to participate.
This upcoming week is also the first KCW that has a theme, and this time it is Mini Me, which is kinda cute, and sort of funny for me as Miss C is completely the opposite to me! I have cool colouring; dark hair, fair skin and blue eyes, whereas as she is warm with blonde hair and hazel eyes.
But in either a freaky coincidence or divine serendipity, Burdastyle released this pattern recently
|Womens and girls raincape pattern Burdastyle 03/2014|
|Leopard print taffeta picked up for $2 metre....bargain!|
So I think someone is telling me something: Mum and daughter raincoats!!!!!
I am planning on using the Burda raincoat pattern for Miss C's coat, but I can't see myself putting up with cape like sleeves, so mine will probably be a more traditional parka style. I will have to dig through the stash to see what I find.
And seeing as I am going to the trouble of making a statement raincoat for the kid, I may as well keep the momentum going and get a winter wardrobe happening at the same time. This is what I have pulled from the stash.
|L-R charcoal grey corduroy, watermelon jersey, black chambray, grey spot chambray and the leopard taffeta... roar!|
I will probably use mostly Burda patterns, as their fit suits Miss C really nicely, but it means a lot of tracing so I better get cracking! The plan is to trace and cut as much as I can before the Week and then sew like the wind!
Have you started planning for next season yet?
