Did you guys know it’s KCWC (kids clothing week challenge) I LOVE sewing for my kids all the time (obviously) but KCWC is my favorite because everyone of my virtual friends are sewing along with me. It makes sewing for my kids like one big group party. So what are you sewing up? I have quite a few things to show you as I have been busily sewing up a storm but it’s a lot of secret projects (shhh) so I thought I would show you the AMAZING jackets that the Pattern Anthology testers made.
The Imagine Jacket was the pattern I designed as part of the Make [Believe] Collection from Pattern Anthology. Let me tell you I LOVE this jacket. Outerwear is one of my favorite things to design, and wear. (I blame the Minnesotan in me) This jacket was fun to design. I was very influenced by my husbands vintage Members Only jacket. I loved the vibe, the style and over all look of the jacket. I wanted something easy for kids to wear, and easy for me to sew. Since the collection was a unisex collection I also added some feminine details, (like the ruffled sleeve) There are so many ways to mix and match the pattern details and create a really cool one of a kind jacket. Also just using a different type of fabric would create a totally different look and feel. Like a windbreaker style made from ripstop or leather for a bomber style jacket. Just check out all the variety in what the testers made.
**Also as a small note the pattern was in testing where the sleeves were discovered to be too short and have since been lengthened, so on the jackets below in which the sleeves are too short that has been corrected in the pattern :)**
Style A:

Crystal made this adorable floral jacket proving even the masculine lines work great for a girl. I love the navy contrast.

Hillary made this lovely jacket. I LOVE the red with with blue and the contrast collar is so great!

Shelly made this darling polka dot jacket. It has floral fabric for the pocket details which is to die for!

Johanna made this super cute jacket for her super cute boy. I mean seriously is he not the cutest thing ever? I love the blue color as well.

Nikki made this cozy looking jacket for her son. I love that she lined it with a super soft flannel, it just makes the whole jacket look cozy.

Stacy made this jacket that blew my mind! She did leather contrast for the sleeve front and back and the collar and shoulder detailing which takes the whole jacket to another level. And her son? Yeah he is pretty cool.

Lindsay made this adorable jacket after one her son’s great grandfather wore during WWII. How’s that for cool? Then she took him for photos with these planes and the whole thing is just amazing!

Amanda made this great jacket. I love how clean and simple the tone on tone jacket looks with the pop of color from the lining.

Style B

Erin made this crazy adorable jacket and I about died when I saw it. I mean come on how cute is this? I love the print and the styling (those adorable sneakers)

Trinh made this darling plaid version for her older daughter, I love the polka dot contrast with the plaid.

She also made this cozy velour one for her younger daughter. I adore both of them and how different they both look just by using different types of fabric.

Jessica made this fun and bright pink jacket. I love that she went with a bold color and a print, so perfectly girly girl.

Allison made this lovely jacket and I love the subtle but bold print. The tone on tone with pop of purple? SO great! Also black is not a usual color for little ones but I LOVE using it.

Nicole made this colorful jacket and I love how she mixed colors with the ribbing and the lining and the fun colorful print of the jacket.

Last but certainly not least…
Maria made this gorgeous jacket in a linen that just sings to my heart. Also I love the little polka dot lining and the pop from the white zipper.
