Waterfall Raglan + Ash Pants

La Folie - Waterfall Raglan + Ash Pants

Yep I’m not done with the Waterfall… heheh I made this one back in November along with these super cool (pardon my lack of modesty here heheh) Ash pants from Petit a Petit patterns. This was one of my favorite outfits from last year.

M. was really needing pants and after I saw the gorgeous ones Rachel made for Petit a Petit tour (you can see them here), I knew I had to make a pair too. As you may know I have a special relation with the Ash Jumpsuit pattern, it was the reason this blog came to be,  so I always go back to it from time to time. ❤  The fabric is another awesome find from my local shop, some kind of knit/denim thing, medium weight and just perfect for this.

I think the Waterfall Raglan from Chalk and Notch will be used a million times around here, both kids and women’s version, just warning you. 😀 The fabric is gorgeous jersey from NOSH, seriously you may think I’m biased from having blogged for them from time to time, but this is really GOOD fabric, totally my first choice whenever I can afford it. This color is no longer available but they have so many great ones, I can’t open their page without wanting to buy a million things, you’ve been warned! hehe

Ohh good times when my double needle wasn’t playing tricks on me. ❤ See that little mistake on the part where the ruffle joins? Yeah my sewing isn’t perfect but I always try to believe it is better to let go… hahaha Who has time to unpick a serged seam anyway? To tell the truth I sometimes do but its only when I just can’t get pass it and I can totally live with this one… maybe I shouldn’t… but I can… 😀

For my tester version I made Option A with long sleeves in a cute floral viyella I found in my local shop, yep remnant bin again… Ha is there any other way of buying fabric?! hehehe

F. is so happy with her dress, it’s been on high rotation since I finished and M. already asked for one several times but we are having a slight fabric disagreement… heheh I think I have to go fabric shopping with her. 😉

Ohh my sweet girl! She’s just the sweetest baby… I know I know she’s not really a baby anymore. Look at her, she started pre-school this year and I just can’t believe it! ❤ I started this blog when she was about 9 months… whah?!!

Yes, Friday is perfect for all those little ballerinas in your life! ❤

Not sure why but this version of the dress makes me want to sing:

“The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
’til tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
You’re always a day away!”

And now I guess I have to make a real Annie dress, maybe when M. watches the movie. I’m just waiting for her to be proficient at reading subtitles so I can show her some classic movies. Annie was one of my best friends favorite movies when we were about 8/9 years old so I must have seen it a gazillion times.

I really hope you’re excited to sew a Friday dress, you can make dresses for all the seasons with this pattern, make it casual or dressy,  classic or modern depending on options and fabric. I’m seriously dying to make it in tencel denim but M. is saying no. I guess I’ll just have to do it because I know she’ll love it when she see its. 😀 Mothers always know whats best right? hahahah 😉

I can’t even… ❤

Loveralls in grey denim

La Folie - Grey Denim Loveralls

Some patterns are just meant to take your sewing to the next level. And yes you’ll fear them but they’re so worth it! The Loveralls by Petit a Petit patterns definitely fall in that category.  When you finish you feel like a freakin’ sewing rockstar!

I had just finished adding the hardware when we decided to go out for lunch at our favourite pizza place which is right in front of the beach. So I decided to take some photos of the pants since M. was really excited for finally wearing them, but silly me forgot to put the memory card on the proper camera so phone camera to the rescue. So typical of me… Lol

La Folie - Grey Denim Loveralls

After going a bit topstitch “crazy” on my Loveralls skirt heheh I wanted to make a more neutral version for the pants. The grey stretch denim comes from my local shop, it was another great value find from the off cut bins. I went with grey for most of the topstitching apart from a few details, and I’m very happy with the result.

Making these went down much quicker than I was expecting, probably because I used mostly the same thread for topstitching and sewed a half fly instead of the recommended zip fly… You already know how I feel about zippers right? I’m happy it worked for M. because her hip/waist measurement is a bit smaller than the size I sewn; I do not recommend doing it if you’re sewing a size closer to your kids measurements, just do what Celina says heheh Lets just say I’ll be sewing that zipper next time hahah 😉

I had cut the carpenter pockets and hammer loop too but, in my fast and furious sewing  mode, forgot to sew them before the back patch pockets and there was no way I was going to unpick those again hahah yes that second row of stitches is a great training for your “inner peace” – Kung Fu Panda vibes anyone? heheheh

Now I’m really looking forward to make a knit version of the Loveralls, probably cut to shorts length and a circle skirt version too. But bottom line I sewn a pair of denim dungarees and I feel pretty awesome hahaha And if you want to see an absolutely “awesomer” pair and one of my favorite Loveralls so far just check out Olu’s blogpost for the tour here, freakin’ amazing job and she’s always a super fun read!
