I used to buy new clothing for myself intermittently. Then I had kids, and the wardrobe budget went straight to them. It’s so much more satisfying to buy things that look adorable on your favorite little people, even if they wear them for about two weeks before they outgrow them. I love pairing my favorite store-bought items with the children’s clothes I make. Here’s a few ways you can do the same, using items from our newest kid’s collection “Classic Knits for Kids”.
Little Old Lady – I like gender neutral clothing, so it’s fun to use a pattern like the Little Old Man Jacket and pair it with more girly items like a floral shirt and classy jodpurs for a look ready for Storytime at the local library.
Run and Jump: Can’t you see your little one running through a park, in a new city you’re visiting, in this bright outfit? Make a Striped Pullover and pair it with vintage shoes or your kiddo’s favorite bright sneakers and you’ll be able to spot them from across the lawn.
Cute and Classic: Sometimes a girl has got to be a girl. I love our Heirloom Layette Set pattern, and I know the cardigan would get tons of use with my girls. Paired with booties and a hat from the Kitty Set, and worn with a sweet printed dress, and your baby’s outfit will have everyone on the street cooing.
Get Shorty: Dressing a kid in black and white is my absolute favorite. It’s so unexpected and fun! With shorts and shoes in neutral grays, you can add a bright pop by knitting up a Striped Pullover in your favorite color – or maybe a bunch of colors! With oodles of style, your kiddos will be giving those celebrity babies a certain run for their money.
