There were some exciting looks on the runway as part of the MadeIt fashion Week!  Let's take a look and see what trends await us for the fall/winter 2015 kid's sewing season.  Simply click on any picture or the text below the picture to learn more about each look.

First off we have some eye catching black geometric prints:

And then there is the ever popular blue, ranging from sky blue to dark navy, and including the always classic denim:

I don't know what Fashion Week would be without the neutrals, many of which include a pop of color or metallic accents for interest:

And my personal favorite, the bold colors and prints which you can't help but notice:

And next we have several young ladies sporting the Balloon Fold Dress, a long knit bubble dress that can be styled several ways, showing that comfort and style really do mix:

And finally, who can resist the Book Fold Trousers & Kite Fold Tee combo?  It's the perfect look for both boys and girls!

  1. Not sure if my comment went thorough or lost in cyberspace.

    Anyway just wanted to say (again) that I loved the style of your round up and it's interesting to see how you grouped the outfits together. I had not realised how many Kite Fold Book Fold combos there were.

    I had noticed a monochrome touch of yellow thing going on though ;-)

    Thank you so much for being part of Madeit Fashion Week.

    1. Roundups are fun because everyone notices different things! The Kite Fold/Book Fold ended up being my favorite combination of patterns, so they really stood out from the crowd. It makes me wish I had chosen to sew them :)

  2. hi, nice roundup. I think that fashion for kids is less 'crazy' than fashion for adults, but I'm layman and I want to know your opinion. What do you think? Regards :)
