Funky flares *preview*

Has it really been almost a month since my last post? Really? Wow, times flies when life is busy. I made my daughter a pair of capri length flares and they are a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e. Well, they were meant to be capri length, on my teeny girl they're almost full length!

I'm pretty happy with them so I'm going to make some for sale, and what goes better with flares than recycled vintage fabrics? I'll be making sizes 1-8 and will only be doing one run of each print. I'm bummed I only have the 1 boyish print so I may make a couple of those.

Check this vintage collection out. Aren't they super funky?! I'll be making them this week so stayed posted!


  1. Adorable!
    Can't wait to see the pants all made up :-)

  2. Oh I can picture them now how awesome. You're right nothing more perfect for flares than vintage fabric. I too can't wait for a pic of the finished thing.

  3. oooo, the brown flowers in a size 4 would be awesome! :D :D

  4. I am a bit obsessed with making clothes for my kids from my vintage sheet collection so it is lovely to see someone else using their's for inspiration too. Looking forward to seeing the pants.

  5. What gorgeous fabrics - Love the purple esp - so vibrant & funky!
