Little Girls Winter Clothing

Yes yes I know its summer but unfortunately the weather in the UK doesn’t agree with me!  I was browsing in the fabric shop the other day (I only bought thread but I looked at EVERYTHING) and found some great needle cord that would look fabulous on my girls.  Its ages since I’ve made any clothes for Miss M & Miss C so I thought they would be perfect for autumn /winter clothes but then I was stuck. All the patterns/designs I see for kids are pretty summer dresses but I want pretty-but-functional autumn/winter dresses.  Only thing I can think of is a pinafore/jumper that can be layered with long-sleeved t-shirts and tights/leggings but there must be other possibilities. 

What have you seen around?  And who are good designers for kids (9 & 6) the Big 4 seem to be stuck in the 80’s and the summer so where should I be looking?  Help gratefully received!


  1. I have this blog on my reader, and she has just discovered a new range of girls sewing patterns.

  2. I've only ever heard good things about Oliver and S patterns for children.
    Good luck! x
