NOSH Women Summer Collection

LaFolie_NOSH Women Summer Collection

When NOSH contacted me to see if I wanted to try some fabrics of their newly released Women Summer Collection I was like: Wait what? Is this email really in my inbox?

You see I was spending a few days at my parents’ house in Alentejo (located on a really remote place with zero internet connection or phone reception gahh) and had climbed the hill a little bit, as I do every morning when I’m there, to check my emails because I have a little bit of an addiction. hehehehe I opened mail and there it was… I confess I jumped of happyness and may have giggled, alone in the hill, like a silly little girl! 😀 😀 I just LOVE LOVE LOVE (like in LOVE A LOT :D) NOSH fabrics. I had already tried some of their fabrics for another project, that NOSH was so kind to collaborate with me in, so I knew what to expect: Pure Amazingness!!

NOSH Organics is a super cool Organic Clothing and Fabric brand, with beautiful products that are produced sustainably and ecologically, could we ask for better? I was asked to choose a pack with some fabric from the New NOSH Fabrics and the photo above illustrates my choice. It contained super lovely jersey in the options Kide Powder and Mini Stripes black/natural, some 1*1 Rib in Powder and some of this pretty twill tape in black/natural. They are all amazing, incredibly soft, come in great colors and are organic, which I confess is one of my soft spots! In the perfect world I would only sew with organic fabric.

Little  bit of a dorky face there but we are here for the fabrics right? 😉

So about my makings… I decided to use the Kide Powder Jersey to make a top. I used Liesl&co Bento Tee pattern, I had already used it for another two tops and I’m really liking it (I’ll talk more about the pattern itself in a future post). I used a little bit of the Powder rib to finish the neckline, this is one of my favorite methods I just love that thin line it creates around the neckline. This print is super cute and has the perfect weight for this type of project. But I just felt the uncontrollable urge to make Named Alexandria peg trousers in the blue version of the print… Will I dare?

As soon as I saw the mini stripes I couldn’t stop thinking about making a knock off of a  Billabong skirt I own (sorry I couldn’t find a link for it). And so I did. I drafted the pattern pieces and went straight to the fabric – I know I know I’m crazy, I should make a muslin but this gives me such a high and you already know how I hate making muslins (don’t get me wrong, I know all their value and I will do my best to start making them in the future, it’s a promise heheh). Lucky enough all went down well and I’m super happy with the result!!!

I love to see the stripes in all those different directions. And all these panels surely contribute to a good twirl factor. I’ve told you im still a silly little girl. Madalena already required a mini version obviously!!! 🙂 Once again I live the drape of the fabric, just perfect!

I’ve also decided to make a simple strapless top to go with it using the Powder rib, adding to the mix a bit of their Dark Yellow rib for some color blocking (generously given to me by NOSH Fabrics for that other project I referred before).

I’m really happy with the pieces I made, bet I’ll be wearing them lots this Spring/Summer and basically forever!! 😀

These fabrics are all perfect and I’m dreaming of more already. The new collection has so many great options, I’m really swooning over this one, and this and also this one for the girls!! But seriously all Organic NOSH fabrics look fabulous! I totally recommend checking it since they are a joy to work with and amazing to wear!

Thank you NOSH for having me in this release, it was immense pleasure.

  12. I never would have chosen the same bundle of Nosh fabric as you. I wasn’t keen on the soft pink. But your outfit has made me change me mind. It all works so well together, and suit you a lot.

    Particularly like the mustard and pink together. I’ll remember that combination 😉

  13. Essa saia está uma perdição Inês! Ficava tão bem ali no meu roupeiro… hehehe… e o último look, com um touch the mustarda e pronto, mataste-me de vez! =D
