I'm still here plugging away at unpacking boxes, but I made some time for sewing. It isn't elaborate or even very pretty, but the necessity arose. Honestly, I needed the excuse, and I knew these would be fast.
If you remember at the beginning of the school year, I was Sewing for Kindergarten for Tandy. Well, she was actually entering Kindergarten early based on the cut off date for her October birthday. When we moved, our original plan was to keep her home for the short remainder of the year, and start her in Kinder again in the fall. Last week we suddenly changed course, and enrolled her in 3 day a week pre-K at a Christian school. Thankfully they are already reading as well, so it is a great fit.
Mondays are chapel days and the only days that require a uniform. The simple uniform consists of a navy polo and khaki bottoms. Since we signed up for school on Friday, we needed bottoms ASAP. This was one instance when sewing would be faster than shopping. Not that I mind shopping!!
I already had the pattern for the wide leg pants from Happy Homemade: Sew Chic Kids traced out from the original denim pair I made for the Sewing for Kindergarten series. I love the easy style of these pants, and the khaki corduroy from my aunt's stash was meant to be. I promise there will be much more interesting sewing to come, but for now it feels good to accomplish something and meet a need.
