Kids Clothes Week Challenge: Monday-Wednesday Edition

Kid's Clothes Week Challenge this week, the northern hemisphere are making autumn clothes and those of us in the southern hemisphere are making summer clothes. I have been busy sewing, and Annie-Rose is getting a new summer wardrobe. Here's what I've achieved so far....
My first shirring elastic project. I don't think I've got it quite right, I feel like the elastic is not very stretchy, I'll have to goggle a good tutorial, I'm sure I've seen some somewhere. Annie is so pleased with her new clothes.
Here she is modelling the shirring dress and some cute bloomers. Yes I know they are big, but it's still spring and she will be growing I'm sure. I brought the fabric for the top and one other (I'll make something tomorrow from it) but most of it is from my stash.

I've made 9 pairs of pants so far. Four for Archie and Max and five for Annie-Rose. I designed them myself and I'm so pleased with them, they fit great.

Here she is modelling one of the t shirts that Chrissy screen-printed for her. So cute! By the way we still have some of these for sale if anyone is interested.
This japanese print has made a really cute dress and also I made the pants from some thifted nylonie stuff. They are quite wide-leg, but I do like them.

Oh I am having fun making clothes for my baby girl. I've spent about $20 so far and made 9 pairs of pant and two dresses. Going well!
