Mini Hudson shorts

Have you heard of the Mini Hudson sewing pattern by True Bias? They are pretty much the most perfectly fitting bottoms I’ve come across in the land of kid’s sewing patterns. To say I love them would be an understatement! There will be many MANY more to come this fall/winter. But I digress..

For this pair I sewed them in a roomy size 3 plus modified them into shorts by cutting the length out as View B, and simply omitted the bottom cuff and hemmed them up by an inch. Perfection.

For my fabric I used a really wonderful medium-weight organic cotton/lycra french terry which I purchased from here. This fabric is serious heaven and I plan on sewing lots more things for the kids from it. The drawstring is some scrap Kaufman laguna knit from my stash and the white detail on the pockets is cotton ribbing from JoAnn’s.

Photobomb. This kid is too much!

Have you sewn a Mini Hudson? There’s an adult version too called the Hudson which has my name written all over it!

Even more PJs

I’m finally back from babyland! Well mostly, in a sleep deprived kind of way. Anyways, these PJs were sewn quite a few weeks back and I never got around to blogging them. So here they are!

Since I am always sewing this kid PJs I opted to made them pretty huge in size 3T with the hopes they will fit for a while. The pattern is “Alex & Anna winter PJs” by Peek-a-boo pattern shop. I modified the pattern by cropping the sleeves and pant legs to make them summer friendly, but there is a summer version of this pattern available if you don’t wish to modify it yourself.

The fabrics are a random assortment from my stash, including Kaufman laguna knit solids and Lillestoff vikings.

Hopefully these will last him for next summer too! Did I mention I’m sick of sewing PJs? 😉
