Sewing for children is so much easier than it is sewing for an adult. Not only are the patterns smaller and usually with fewer design details, I don't worry about perfecting inside construction techniques. I just added two skirts to the Christmas gift list. I've had these two fabrics in stash for a couple of years now, the turquoise is a cotton stretch denim from DDM, the dark magenta is a luscious cotton velveteen from Fabricmart. I loved working with the velveteen, wish I had some more yardages for myself!
