Good News, the M4M Back to School Blog Tour is here! If you are looking for back to school sewing inspiration, follow along! Every day starting Monday will be filled with tons of inspiration.
We are bringing you some of the most talented ladies in the sewing community, sharing their Made for Mermaids best selections and some small modifications for school dress code friendly looks.
While I was looking to start my sewing journey for this school year, I had to take a close look to our school’s dress code to be compliant and get my littles ready for a year full of learning and new friendships. Some of the requirements for our school district are:
- Shirts with sleeves must be worn at all times. (For Boys)
- Sleeveless tops with a minimum width of two-inch wide straps are acceptable.
- Dresses, skirts and shorts must extend to or below the students‘ fingertips when their arms are held to their sides. This applies also to skirts and shorts worn with leggings.
I am sure some schools might have different rules, but these are pretty standard, with that in mind we have selected a group of patterns that would be more than appropriate to be in compliance but still fun and unique!
Did you get your sewing list for girls and boys? What about your child measurements sheet? Make sure to download the files on the Facebook Group ! Or grab the checklists here and measurement charts here.
