Kids Clothes Week- Day 7 - Village Frock



A Sugar City pattern from Melissa. I love this pattern and the blue linen has been waiting in the cabinet. It's the same soft lightweight linen that I used on the red one I made.

I had hopes of going to the woods and taking a picture or at least the village. In my town we actually do call the shopping center 'the village'. Our village is in the center of town at the bottom of two hills on either side. How fitting then to have a frock called The Village Frock. I'd like to see her walking about with a baguette like I wrote in my first post or maybe building a home for fairies in the yard or even wearing to a birthday party which is always magical to a child.


We've come to the end of the Kids Clothes Week Challenge and it's been a lot of fun. I have one more clothing item ( a good one) I want to show but, maybe I'll just wait a few days to show it off. I think I hear my knitting needles calling. I now have to make a dent in my yarn stash so I can justify buying something at the sheep and wool festival coming up in a few weeks.

Here is the first village frock I made. Look how little she was then.

super sweet-
just found your blog and I love it... I'm so impressed, while I make my living sewing, I've never been all that good at sewing clothes. I've made quite a few for my son but nothing as sweet and beautifully - do I dare say - tailored as what you're making.

So good to hear from you! :) Thanks for stopping by! I admire you and your sewing abilities. Someday I hope to be able to sew something other than a pillow or patchwork quilt. Squares are my limit, I'm afraid.

I have this pattern, and haven't busted it out quite yet, but you sure are motivating me to do just that! Really adorable. And is your sheep and wool fest Rhinebeck? That one looks like such a dream (and so much bigger than our Oregon variety).

i love this little dress! you've made some really cute things i see. :)

how is that heather ross fabric, is it heavy? (that you used for the skirt.) i was thinking of getting one of those prints to make a dress for a friend's daughter.

Hi Jen,

Thanks.
The fabric is a bit heavy. Depending on the pattern you choose for the dress it might be fine.
I have a few more pieces from the line and I hope to make the Oliver + S Popover Sundress which is a free pattern on their site with it next Spring/Summer.
