Kid's Clothes Week.

I saw a notice today that announced the next kid's clothes week, and I couldn't be more excited.
It's been a while since I joined Meg, I always have the best intentions, but then I get busy or lazy or both.
There's a theme this time - Storybook.

I love the idea of taking inspiration from a storybook. About 5 years ago I knitted a sweater based on an illustration by Jan Brett from Annie and the Wild Animals.

Even though Kid's Clothing Week Challenge is a sewing challenge, I think I'll try an outfit with a sweater and something sewn. 
Also, I have always wanted to make up those overalls from the book, perhaps I can get those going for the challenge too.
Time to start poring over my favorite books.

I'm excited about the Storybook Theme, and was thinking about overalls, too :)

Jan Brett's artwork is so great, and your sweater matches perfectly.

If you need an overall pattern, Compagnie-M is asking for testers for her dungaree pattern--you have to apply by tonight (I thought it was tomorrow and just put my name in tonight). If you're interested, here's the link: http://compagnie-m.com/blog/testers-call-charles-pants-shorts-dungarees/
