I've come to the conclusion, that making clothes for your child is not neccessarily cheaper than buying them, BUT IT CAN BE IF YOU SHOP ON FABRIC CLEARANCE! Plus, it gives me something to do with ALL my spare time. You can get some cute stuff for around the same price at Walmart. It is nice to learn the skill though. Being able to sew will definately save a few items of ripped clothing from the garbage.
I bought a pattern for $4. It includes a 2 cami tops, 1 pair of pants, and 2 dresses.
Cami 1 with ruffles- $2 for fabric
Cami 2 with front pocket and Pants- $2.88 total for fabric
I havn't made the dress yet. I need to find some cheap fabric.
I also found a FREE skirt Tutuorial online. It is a reversible wrap skirt.
Reversible wrap- Side 1- $3 for fabric and ribbon
Loretta bought a Valance for Kate's room that didn't end up matching. It cost her around $1. She gave it to me, so I turned it into a wrap skirt!
