Today I have a very special project to share with you. For a while now I’ve been a major fan of Celina Bailey from Petit a Petit & Family; honestly she’s one of the most amazing and creative bloggers in the “sewing community”, and I have to confess she’s my favorite, I just Love her style.
I got super excited when she and some other amazing ladies announced the launch of a new pattern making collective called Willow&Co
. And so when I saw Celina’s call for pattern testers I immediately decided to sign up… Never in a million years I thought I would get picked to test it, and if you know me you know that it’s true… But guess what I was… And so with no further delay I give you my version of the Ash Jumpsuit!
I’ve tested the separates version of it, the cutest pair of pants and a lovely top. Seriously this is one of the best patterns I’ve ever worked with. The instructions are very easy to follow and it all comes together perfectly. I just love the cute detail of the ruffle on the waistband. And the neckline is so pretty!!
I already bought another fabric to make the Jumpsuit for Madalena, and I’ll definitely make one for Francisca too. It’s a perfect summer outfit. It just looks great, right?! I also have been thinking that it would give a really cute dress with an elastic waistband… So I guess you’ll be seeing much more of this pattern around here!
I used a lovely voile from Koka that I bought at Retrosaria
for the top and some lightweight denim for the pants.
Well I must say that this was one of the most fun experiences I’ve had in a long time. And it definitely was great to work along an amazing group of talented seamstresses and see they’re awesome versions first hand. Not to mention how thrilled I was for Celina to let me test it…
Don’t miss the official launch of this incredible Spring/Summer collection of patterns on April 22nd at Willow&Co.
I’m sure I won’t!
