If you guys know anything about this little blog you know that I couldn’t miss this “Sewing Block Party with Petit a Petit Patterns”. A virtual party to celebrate Celina’s unique vision, design talent and high quality patterns. Her patterns always show her attention for detail and amazing style! ❤ So here we go!
I wanted to make a whole outfit and I’ve considered so many different things. In the end I decided on the one pattern I didn’t have a chance to sew after it was released: the Morocco Pants & Shorts; I had only sewn a pre-test version (here).
M. finally decided she loves pants and shorts so I have many projects to add them to her wardrobe heheh, this time I decided on shorts. Fabric wise I chose this gorgeous lightweight baby cord from Land of Oh and luckily had some perfectly matching piping for the pockets. I’m always a bit lazy to add it but sweet IG/FB friends encouraged me to. So worth it! ❤ I choose a basic version with elasticized back and darts; the only modification to the pattern was switching the zipper fly for a half fly, you know I’ll runaway from zippers if given a chance ahahaha…
A rare photo of the inside because I’m so proud of using bias tape to finish the waistband… heheh 😀 makes it look much prettier right? Now I wish I added bias everywhere instead of serging.
As I was finishing the shorts, Celina gave me the idea of hacking the Friday dress, a new dress pattern currently in testing phase, and making a high low shirt. And so I did, in a gorgeous flame knit from NOSH (here), that I had actually bought for myself. After seeing how well it paired with the shorts fabric there was no turning back. Lucky kid, Ha! I didn’t make that many changes to the pattern apart from skipping the back yoke and adding sleeve cuffs. After that it was just a matter of cutting the circle skirt shorter. I cut it all with the same length and tried it on M. to see how much could I remove for the high/low which I cut directly on the fabric.
Yep one of the snaps is out of place… Sigh I can’t express how I felt without losing my poise and cursing a bit so I won’t and I’ll accept and move on… Please move on with me… heheheh 😉
To finish the cool girl look, I decided on making another Goodall Cardigan also in NOSH fabric, Denim College (see it here). The Goodall is such a quick gratifying project, I’m always super happy when I finish one. 😀 Actually I would love to fit in this one…
M. decided she wanted to take some photos while I was taking these, and that totally made sense to me since Celina is a superb photographer. She was really in character. ❤ Unfortunately we forgot to check if the card was in the camera and so we ended up not having any, needless to say someone was bummed… But don’t worry I put the card and she did took a few later, seeing what kids choose to photograph is really fun.
ohhh my camera… Eeek 😉
