School is right around the corner which means it’s time to think about back to school clothes! If you have a goal to sew all or part of your child’s school wardrobe it’s definitely time to get started
Here’s my checklist for the girls:
And here’s my list for boys:
Of course these lists will vary depending on where you live and your child’s preferences. My daughter doesn’t like pants so she really only needs one pair and 5 dresses instead of 1 or 2 If you live somewhere warm all year you can skip the winter gear and add in some shorts.
Use this list as a launching point for your own customized list. Then go through your child’s drawers and cross off everything you’ve already purchased and/or made. Then see what you have left and decide which pieces you’d like to make and which you need to add to your shopping list.
Keep in mind that this a sewing checklist and just for school but if you’re doing a whole wardrobe you’ll also need pajamas, dress clothes, socks and shoes.
