while designing women’s clothes this year i have also been thinking ahead to a new children’s collection. pinterest has proved to be a lot of fun and above are some of the images i found inspiring. my daughter, giulietta, is now 8! she was a few days into 3 when i thought to try and sell a few things i was already making for her. she still loves the simple skirts in linen and wool. she’ll wear a pintuck blouse but is more interested in dresses lately. basically she refuses to wear pants of any kind unless it’s her tae kwon do uniform. i think in part she finds pants less comfortable. she definitely has a tummy, like a lot of girls her age. so rather than insist on some jeans i’d like to make her some clothes that are cute but practical. a knit dress in color block for sure. some new skirts (with pockets?). maybe a younger version of the fiji dress – this seems like such a great style made up in a dark plaid for girls, in autumn, with tights. in addition to the clothes i’ll be offering a few other fun things – a simple book bag (or purse). a few vintage toys. a patchwork cloth ball for babies (i love this, my knitwear designer makes them). any ideas? feel free to drop me a line. look for the new children’s collection mid-september, just in time for the new school year :>
the first pintuck blouse was white cotton voile for my daughter ..
skirts .. already had her pose worked out at 3 :>
