For my tester version I made Option A with long sleeves in a cute floral viyella I found in my local shop, yep remnant bin again… Ha is there any other way of buying fabric?! hehehe

F. is so happy with her dress, it’s been on high rotation since I finished and M. already asked for one several times but we are having a slight fabric disagreement… heheh I think I have to go fabric shopping with her.😉

Ohh my sweet girl! She’s just the sweetest baby… I know I know she’s not really a baby anymore. Look at her, she started pre-school this year and I just can’t believe it!❤ I started this blog when she was about 9 months… whah?!!

Yes, Friday is perfect for all those little ballerinas in your life!❤

Not sure why but this version of the dress makes me want to sing:

“The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
’til tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
You’re always a day away!”

And now I guess I have to make a real Annie dress, maybe when M. watches the movie. I’m just waiting for her to be proficient at reading subtitles so I can show her some classic movies. Annie was one of my best friends favorite movies when we were about 8/9 years old so I must have seen it a gazillion times.

I really hope you’re excited to sew a Friday dress, you can make dresses for all the seasons with this pattern, make it casual or dressy,  classic or modern depending on options and fabric. I’m seriously dying to make it in tencel denim but M. is saying no. I guess I’ll just have to do it because I know she’ll love it when she see its.😀 Mothers always know whats best right? hahahah😉

Blue Charlene . Ottobre Design Dress

La Folie - Ottobre Design Dress in Nosh Stripes

Hello just a quick post today to show you this dress from OTTOBRE Design Magazine latest autumn issue (4/2016). I bought the magazine precisely because of this dress, which is featured on the cover; its a super cute everyday jersey dress and I’m pretty sure I’ll make a few of them. I think it goes perfectly with this striped jersey I got a few weeks ago.❤

Ha the girl looks like she’s saying “please mom I’m sick of this modeling business” ahahahaha She was doing me a big favor when she agreed on these photos but don’t be fooled she totally loves her dress.😉 She even had already used it for her cousins birthday party the day before hence the little stain… Sigh I forgot to remove this one in Photoshop… LOL

This is size 116 cm of pattern number 15 Blue Charlene , and I think its perfect for M. I really believe getting at least a few issues of Ottobre to be a great investment and this particular issue brings many patterns I plan to make. You can see a cardigan from the same issue here.

I’m really happy with this NOSH jersey, it’s one of those “basic” fabrics (I’m saying that in the most positive way) that I would love to have in my stash forever. It’s from one of their latest collections and you can find it here. NOSH organics is having a great fabric sale FIY, temptation is killing me!!! So many good stuff…

Madeit Fashion Week . Drop

La Folie - Madeit Fashion Week - Drop

If there’s something I never imagine  I’d be doing one day was to be part of a Fashion Week, even a virtual one. But here we are hehehe It’s Madeit Patterns Fashion Week and I’m so very happy to take part. I had so much fun!

La Folie - Madeit Fashion Week - Drop

For this Fashion Show we were asked to sew their latest pattern called DROP. It’s a knit dress or top super easy to sew but that looks super cool and stylish, so do I want it? Yes please!!!! The perfect fabric for it was already in my stash and all; who cares that I bought it to make some hopefully cool pants from a Japanese pattern? I didn’t even blink, it was destiny! Haha 

La Folie - Madeit Fashion Week - Drop

Just reading through the instructions made my day and I couldn’t help myself from sharing a silly photo for #droptashtic, yep we are starting a movement; it’s impossible to resist! Check out the hashtag on IG and laugh with us.😉 I laughed so hard, Olu really has a wonderful sense of humor!! 

La Folie - Madeit Fashion Week - Drop

Sooo back to Drop. From the first moment I knew I wanted to go with the dress version and luckily I had enough of my choice of fabric to make it. I don’t really know how long it took me from printing to pressing the final seams but it felt like a blink of an eye. Seriously so fast and such a perfect result! Yes!! I want more! 

La Folie - Madeit Fashion Week - Drop

The fabric is NOSH jersey Fantasia again, which I become obsessed with after making a Groove dress this summer (here). I love it so much! I do think I might have messed up a bit while placing the pattern according to grain but I still Love it anyway. You know I can leave peacefully with most of my mistakes heheh😉 (although that sure doesn’t mean I don’t notice them)

The pattern asks for a lighter weight fabric but this one still works great, if only I had some more of this fabric in black… I think I need it… for a DROP top, totally legit basic need IMO hahah I keep asking Santa for fabric but he never listens sigh… hahaha You think maybe he doesn’t read my blog?! hahahahah

Where did I Drop those pins? If I don’t pick them from the floor Bruno will kill me… hahahah This is a classic pose if you have to take photos of your DROP.😀

We were asked to photograph our DROP’s with some cool backdrops… Humm taking photos outside isn’t one of my favourite things particularly of myself. Even with my sweet husband helping me, so I went with my boring white wall again… yes I know… don’t be disappointed with me, we all have our strengths hehehehe If you’d know me a few years ago you’d never even imagine I’d be keen on taking and sharing photos of myself… soo this already feels like a big victory hehhehe :D 

However you know I’m a sucker for having fun with photo collages so here you go: the most amazing backdrop is mine!! Bahaha Because I’m part alien and can turn into a giant, who can just fly to the moon  (superman style but no cape needed) and survive without atmosphere! You love it right? Hahahaha just look at those pretty stars! Amazing! Hahahaha
