I have a confession…I hate doing laundry. Washing it is fine, drying ok, but then it sits, in baskets, for days. In fact, often my girls will look in the laundry room for an outfit before even checking in their closets. So, I completely was on board with the concept of this tour: Make Laundry; Don’t do Laundry!
I created this casual outfit for my toddler in just under 90 minutes from cut to final press. Both these patterns were familiar to me, so that helped speed things up.
The pants are my own pattern: the Jasper Joggers by Gracious Threads. They took about 60 minutes to complete, but are full of fun details. There are front hip pockets and back faux welt pockets. The bottom hems are finished with elastic, as is the waistband. I used a medium weight twill for this pair. I like how the woven fabric makes these a little more dressy, but they still are familiar and comfortable joggers!
For the top, I chose the Wingman Tee from Patterns for Pirates. I’ve sewn this top before, and knew it went together quickly. I used a fun Euro print fabric purchased from L’Oiseau Fabrics. The top took about 30 minutes to complete.
My son and I had a ton of fun taking pictures for this outfit, and he loves the print of the top. I’m happy he has another outfit, all in the time it takes to do one load of laundry!
