I make most of my kids' wardrobes (the cool stuff anyways!), so here is what they are wearing now that the weather is turning cooler.  My DD's clothes are mostly my own designs (pattern for the leggings, though) and my DS' clothes are pretty much the Ottobre curved raglan, a turtleneck shirt pattern and an Ottobre Bert shorts pattern that I have converted to pants and made the pockets interior on the front.

DS is pretty set on clothes right now and DD still fits into some of her clothes I made her last winter.  I know I will make more dresses, though.  She's already got some fabric picked out. Wink

Cool boy stuff:

The dragon on this shirt is an iron-on.

Girl stuff:

I just made the underdress on this one - it is her Halloween costume

Thanks for looking and I'd love to hear your comments. Smiley

Wow, everything is so cool! My mom used to make me dresses when I was really little, but I wish she had made some awesome pants too (I'm in love with the stenciled black dragon ones, I'd wear them if they were my size!)

WOW indeed!  Your kiddos are definitely the best dressed ones around!
I totally want to steal the dragon and skull outfits... that's if they'd actually fit me.  Grin

Thanks so much everyone!  Grin

I looked at the shorts that I converted to pants came from the 3/09 Otto and the shirt came from 4/08 Otto.  Many things are repeats, so look at the design outlines of the issues and see which one has the most that you would like.  I have a subscription as a Christmas present, but I'm about ready to have them cancel it for me.  I have plenty of patterns now, and I rarely use the girl stuff since I make my own for those.
