kids wardrobe planning

It's summertime - burning hot and all - so it's time to think about this years fall-/winter wardrobe for the boys. Especially for me slow, part time sewist. They sure did grow a lot and will need some new stuff. Last year, I've started the mission to sew at least a part of there wardrobe since I would like too plus pants weren't slim enough and there are way too many licensed characters on clothes of there sizes. Thus, we'll need:

  • Longsleeves
  • Hoodies / Sweater
  • PJs
  • few pants, there should be enough for the beginning
Just started looking for inspiration, though. Last year we had a lot of brown and charcoal with popping colors like some of the clothes below. Not sure where it will be heading this year but there are a few goals:

  • comfortable and sturdy
  • complementing the existing wardrobe
  • some pops of colors for better mood
  • experimenting further defining and refining our style
  • using up my fabric stash
  • and most important: still having fun, which is something easy to ignore when setting goals too high.
Cool boys might be a nice theme. Just found some nice biker jackets for them. Little M loves orange, so it will be incorporated somehow. Big J has not exactly a favorite but tends to green and subdued colors. Not that easy. So the next weeks will be used for pattern reviews, searching for inspiration and some planing. Meanwhile I should hurry to is to finish some summer projects.
