day two: kcw may 2016

Welcome to day two of Kid’s Clothes Week!

kcw: day two may 2016

1. school bus tank by Kristi 2. cloud 9 gathered skirt by Sylvia 3. honeycomb maillot by Masha 4. I want to be like you by Zoe 

For the most part I try to keep KCW season-less–even though we have one each season;) I’m trying not to exclude the whole southern hemisphere with a lot of talk about our lovely late-spring, super-gorgeous, almost-summer weather we’re having. But the beautiful springtime colors you are using this season are too much! Peach and mint are everywhere, with a splash of bright yellow to drive it home. I want to eat this summer color scheme right up!

1. omni tempore swim cover up by Tami 2. panda print cuffed romper by Erin 3. baby wear by Eva 4. mod domi sweats by Shelly 

Not to mention the all the pandas and stripes and polka dots! The project pool is starting to fill up with fantastic finished garments. But don’t get discouraged by all the well-lit photos with non-screaming kids wearing well-fitting clothes. For all the pretty pictures you see in the pool, just remember there are many more not so pretty things that came first (late night yelling matches with your sewing machine for example). Also remember a few skittles in the pocket make for a cute photo. When that doesn’t work, just crop their crying head off in photoshop and move on.

    Those colors are just gorgeous. It’s so true about all the difficulties getting those garments perfect and trying to get the perfect shot. My kids are all incredibly silly, so we’ve learned to just embrace it. Lol

    Sunshine helps with the photos too – our literal month of rain seems to be over as of today though 🙂 Thanks for the feature!

    “Just crop their crying head off and move on.” WISE WORDS.
