When everybody else in this blog tour is thinking about transitioning from spring to summer, we, in Estonia are mostly thinking of transitioning from winter to spring. It has been long winter and luckily we have enjoyed some warmer weather too recently.
When I am transitioning my kids from spring to summer I am thinking of layers and ease of adding and taking off clothes.
While choosing patterns I try to choose the ones that have multiple sleeve length options because most of the time we need long sleeves, but in real summer we also need short sleeves or sleeveless. I actually prefer short sleeves because scandinavian kids tend to get sunburn really easily on their shoulders 😉
Since my 2yo now really vocally speaks about her clothing choices I need to speak with her before making something for her and even then she might not like some of the things I made her..
So for now we are mainly using combos with tights (If you have any good recommendations for tights patterns then feel free, to let me know 🙂 ). I would love to show you some of our recent loves, but these patterns are not available to buy yet so you’ll see them later 🙂
As what we talk about jackets and other outerwear I have some of our favorites collected here with our latest loves of clothes 🙂
We like to pair all of her clothes with either faux leather jacket (from Lindex), Polarn o. Pyret shell jacket or some of our Twig + Tale loves (Traveller cape and Pixie Pea coat)
As we are speaking about recent loves of clothing patterns I have two favorites. Misusu patterns Louise sweater (featuring short and long sleeves, dress and sweater length + a kangaroo pocket!) (link)
The other love is even newer on PDF pattern market, the Mandrake dress by Sew Like My Mom (link) featuring colorblocking, optional kangaroo pocket and sleeveless + short sleeves + elbow length sleeves + long sleeves! Seriously in love with this 🙂
What are your favorite patterns for kids transitioning?
