So today is the last day of Kids Clothes Week, and I've finished a couple of more items that I'd love to share. Unfortunately, my little model was in no mood to cooperate with me today. Each time I approached with a camera she yelled, "NoNoNoNo" and ran away. Ah well, these photos will have to do.  

Top is  Figgy's Banyan Tee and Tunic. I made the tunic in size 2 and it fits perfectly. With all of the patterns out there I find myself returning to Figgy's because of their clarity and killer style. I simply love the designs. If I had the patience I would scale this pattern way up and make this shirt for myself!

Shorts are the yoga shorts from the book Sewing Mod Kid Style. They took about 20 minutes to sew with my serger, especially since I chose not to finish the hems. The beauty of sewing with knits in my opinion is that I don't have to finish hems! But really, how cute is that fold over waistband? 
So that's it for the sewing for this week, in this house. Thanks to Kids Clothes Week for motivating me to sew our girl a little handmade wardrobe. I've had a great time participating along with the amazingly talented people posting on the KCW community site!!
