Twisted Tour

La Folie - Twisted Tour

Confession: I may have slightly imposed myself on Laura‘s tour… hehehe

La Folie - Twisted Tour

You know how I feel about Laura’s patterns right? They’re perfection! The Twisted Tank and Twisted Trousers are no exception!!!

First the Tank. I LOVE it! This was my first time using this pattern. I made the untwisted version and wanted something a little more girly – and now you say what? Even more than all that coral/pink she has going on?? And I say Yes… heheh I was inspired by copied Mie’s’ super cute version of the Rowan Tee (she even has a tutorial for it so check it out); I knew I wanted to do it as soon as I read that post!! 😀

I used flame knit in coral from my local fabric store, and finished armholes and neckline with dark yellow rib from NOSH. (OMG I ONLY HAVE A SMALL PIECE LEFT!!!! I NEED more!!) Madalena was so happy when she saw it, I know I’ll have to do some more for Summer, some twisted ones included!

And now the Trousers… This is my fifth pair, and I couldn’t love this pattern more! I want a pair just like this for me!!! Am I a horrible person for coveting my daughters’ clothes? Laura I know you’re all busy growing an adorable human being and all, but please I need this in adult size!!! hehehe 😉 ❤ ❤ ❤

Regarding my options I made front pockets, pipping on the side seams and yoke, no back pockets and no fly (I know I know I’m the laziest ever… but I actually think it works perfectly like this, ahem). For STYLO I decided (don’t ask me why!!!) to make size 4 and though I like the fit in that particular fabric, I knew I wanted to go back to size 5 when making these. I love the fit!

 For the bottom seams I wanted to try a different finish, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I used fold over elastic in black, and I’m really happy the result, I just wish I had trimmed the bottom of the pants so that they finished with the size they were supposed, heheheh. Well they’ll fit longer, that’s my eternal legit excuse for messing up… 😉

After I finished these, I remembered why my fabric seemed so familiar… Sweet Sara used it beautifully not long ago for a pair of pants too! 😀 And this time I can tell you that this pretty floral is rayon (yeah I totally checked her post to see what fabric was this because I buy but never ask hahaha, I’m a bad girl LOL). As for the waist I used NOSH rib in Powder, I think it pairs great with the pants fabric.

Sorry for the extra worn out sandals… hehehe 😉

And now something fun… I knew I would be posting on the same day as Celina, and I should be slightly dreading it because she always delivers amazing things, but actually I feel really really happy and honored to post with her (you know I’m her die hard number one fan right?). Sooo anyway, I saw that she was using a dark background fabric for her pair and commented with her how cool we were on the same vibe. She suggested we’d make a collage with the girls, and… you know I’m a sucker for collage… Well here you go: once upon a time Madalena and Miss E were together in their Twisted Trousers. 😉
