Kaleidoscope Top - KCW Day 5
See Kate Sew patterns are my new fave... I purchased 3 of them in prep for KCW and boy they did NOT disappoint! I fell in love with the Kaleidoscope Top the minute I laid eyes on it. That was quite a while ago and I'm so glad I finally bought it and put it to good use. *BTW, this sews up SUPER fast! At 7am this morning this shirt was just a big piece of fabric. By 9:45am, I had the shirt completed, the 2 kids and myself all dressed, fed, blog photos taken, necessities gathered up for a playdate and out the door.*
I absolutely love the boxy shape on my little girl. Man, I wish I could get away with half the clothes she wears! Her wardrobe is way better than mine, I totally have closet envy, towards my 2 year old.
Not only did I fall in love with the pattern, I fell for the fabric Kate used on her model too. And the second I saw it on deep clearance at Girl Charlee I snatched up a good chunk for myself! What do you think, mommy/daughter matching sweatshirts? Too cheesy??
The only change I made to the pattern was to lengthen the hemline about 2" total. She lives in leggings so I prefer tunic length on most of her shirts. Once she's a bit older I can't wait to try the elastic waist option and pair it with jeans. I never thought I'd ever like 80's style, didn't like it in the 80's, but I am liking it a little bit these days :)
Size Sewn: 18mo - lengthened 2"
Changes made: None, except for lengthening
Still have 2 more shirts that are high on the priority list for finishing by Monday... Crossing my fingers I can squeeze them in!!
See you soon!
