Pretty in Peach // Kid's Clothes Week Spring 2016

Kid's Clothes Week is back and once again I'm participating.

So, this kid. She's almost 9 years old. She's at least 142 cm tall. Face it, woman - a size 128/134ish does not fit this girl anymore!! Then why don't you start making her some clothes that will fit her?! Now, that's a good question!

I've been saving this beautiful peach colored embossed scuba jersey for something special - a peplum dress for Wilma! Peplum dress it is. Just not for Wilma, sigh! Luckily I have some fabric left, so I might give the dress another go, if I dare.

I drafted the pattern a couple of years ago and tried sizing it up - but apparently not enough.

The kimono is a modified version of New Look 6378. I shortened it a bit but kept the width, so Wilma is in fact wearing a women's size xs.

The scuba was an ebay scoop and the floral satin is from Stoff & Stil.

Kjolen er til salg for DKK 250 incl porto

  4. Too bad she's outgrown it already, but the pattern is great! Love reading about your tall kids, same here ;-) Our eldest turned 8 in December and is already 135cm tall as well, and growing daily...

    1. Yup. My 17 year old has hopefully stopped growing at her ca 180 cm. I have a feeling that my 12 year old boy will be taller than my 178 in less than a year! It's only my 10 year old who's average height - same as his one year younger sister.
