KCWC Day 1: Tracing

One hour?  Not exactly.  More like 40 minutes.  Forty very interrupted minutes!  Still, I managed to trace the popular Hilda-Tilda pattern from Ottobre 6/2007 (#27) in two sizes!  I didn't get to add the seam allowances yet.

Neither of my kids need much in the way of clothes.  They could each use a pair of shorts, but they're set in the t-shirt and jeans department.  So I decided to start with swimming cover-ups.  His and hers.  Pretty much exactly like LiEr at Ikatbag just did (great timing!) only I'll be using Ottobre pattern pieces.  And making a few changes a la LiEr since I like how she did the lined hood and the neck slit in front.

I don't have fabric picked out yet.  I have plenty of options for Miss M, but I'm limited on my choices for Little Guy. I guess I'll have to decide tomorrow!
It'd be nice if the postman would deliver the new issue of Ottobre tomorrow so I can trace a pair of shorts.
