Blush Fabrics Tour

Once in a while pretty amazing things happen around here and being part of a Tour to promote Dana Willard (Yes that Dana, OMG OMG OMG!!! hehehe) new fabric line with Art Gallery fits precisely in that category, right?!

Dana is one of the sewing blogger guru’s of our community, with her SUPER PRO video tutorials and cool patterns and creations, just check out Made Everyday to see for yourself. I’ve been tempted to get her fabrics many times but the opportunity never came up, so when I got her invitation to give her collection a try I was like WHahh?? Is this really for me?!! YES YES YES a million times yes! 😀 Ok, I’m sounding like  fan girl, but I can’t avoid it! hahahahah

Back to the point, which is this beautiful jersey I had the opportunity to try. When I face such a beautifully designed print I kind of tend in using sewing patterns that make “simpler” (in the good sense of the word) garments. I want to showcase the print the best I can without much distractions, so I chose Madeit Patterns Spin Dress, which is one of my favorite patterns.

The jersey is super soft and a breeze to work with, the colors are so beautiful… I’m really tempted to hoard more of this and other gorgeous ones from the collection… Help… heheh Good thing I cleared some closet space lately! bahaha

I’m definitely in Love with this make, and so is M., its her first Spin Dress and I think I’ll maker her another one, maybe with a hood? You can get the pattern here.

Dana’s collection is amazing, just look at all the gorgeous prints!

You can see them in more detail on her website here. The print used for this post is called Floret HoneyDew in knit, but I also got a couple of yards of Floret Sunkissed which is a Rayon, I’ll share my project with it as soon as I finish, I’m LOVING it!

Thank you so much Dana for this wonderful opportunity!

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs! ❤ ❤ ❤




Rushbrook Dress Pattern Tour

Hello sweet people, I know I promised to blog more often again but life and regular laziness have been in the way of that goal… 😉 However I’ve been sewing regularly and sharing on IG and FB, I just have to get more organized to make some posts here too. eheheh

But today its all about my good friend Laura aka Titchy Threads/Craftstorming new pattern the Rushbrook dress and top. As you may already know by the amount of times I use her patterns that she’s one of my favorite designers and I wouldn’t miss the opportunity to try this one too.

This is like a joke already but I seem to be obsessed with using patterns designed for woven fabric with knits… Ugh, am I getting boring? I hope not because I think I’ll keep doing it hahah, seriously I’m a sucker for it… 😀

So the Rushbrook… a pattern for wovens, with lots of cute options, perfectly drafted and with super pro instructions as you can expect from all of Laura’s patterns. Adapting it to knits was on my plans from the first moment, I started by imagining it in a different fabric, however when F. told me she wanted the ruffled version I looked at this print from NOSH and immediately knew I had to make a new Cloud’s Dress. If you don’t know what I’m talking about just check out this post and this; I think it’s time to start a new tradition and sew her a cloudy dress every year, don’t you think? 😉

To make it in knit I trimmed the neckline a bit, once I wouldn’t be making the placket, and I made a very subtle change to the shoulder curve on the back piece, finishing the seams with rib. Also finished the ruffle with a rolled hem which I think turned out super cute and gave it an even more casual look.

Both the clouds jersey and the black rib knit are from NOSH Organics and I’m pretty sure I need more of both hahahah

I made size 4 for my 4 year old, she would be closer to a size 3 but I want it to last until next summer, I’ll style it with a top and leggings during winter… It just started raining here and I’m already craving for warm weather again, I can’t help myself, I’m a summer kid. 😉

Its definitely on my plans to make this in the recommended fabric, probably a top in some baby cord I have on the stash… But I also have a denim sweatshirt version on my mind so I don’t know which one will win hahahah

Well, I hope to have inspired you in trying the Rushbrook, you won’t regret it trust me, and if you don’t have much experience or feel a bit overwhelmed with the placket, don’t be because Laura’s instructions are perfect, a sewing technique lesson inside the pattern.

You can get the Rushbrook pattern here; NOSH Clouds jersey here and NOSH black rib knit here.

Don’t forget to check out all the amazing makes on this tour, I sure know what my weekend reading will be. 😉 Just look at that cutie on the tour graphic, and that top!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ All the heart eyes!

Sweet Dreams with Allgots

“Winter is coming” or so they say hehehe and I’m on a mission to sew for M. the things she needs. Weather is still pretty great around here but we all know what were heading so I can’t procrastinate much… 😉 The girl is really in need of new sleepwear, so I started by making her a new nightgown, perfect for this transition period.

And Oh boy she couldn’t be happier! Just look at her face. 😀 No wonder, I would be too if I had a super soft organic cotton nightgown in this cute print, right people?!

A few months ago I took part on a seamstress search for Allgots, a sustainable fabric brand, who’s production is entirely from Europe, which makes my eco footprint happy. Being chosen made me super happy but unfortunately my life entered a crazy phase a few weeks later and I wasn’t able to keep my schedule to share about them then. Anyway, better late than never and these fabrics deserve all my attention right now.

I’m so in Love with this print, I think its perfect for a number of projects and to make it better the fabric is super soft and has good recovery, all you need on good jerseys.

To make the nightgown I choose one of my favorite dress patterns, The Safari Raglan from Titchy Threads. This is size 7, perfect fit as usual, and I made no changes apart from adding a ruffle at the bottom.

For a few months now that I gave up using the double needle, I keep finding much less stressful to just finish knit seams with a zigzag and its been proving to resist much longer, I’m actually liking it too.

Unfortunately this print is already sold out but you can check all the Allgots collection here, do check them since they have lots of other cute prints and beautiful solids. The Safari Raglan is available here.

My sweet Angel! hehehe 😉

Thanks for stopping by, Hugs! ❤ ❤ ❤
