It all started with the Madalena’s’ dress. It’s from the Japanese book 1 pattern 1 week and I’ve been obsessed with making it since I got the book last year.
I love the concept of this book because it has 5 basic patterns and then shows 5 different ways of using them, really my cup of tea. 😀
I think the pattern pairs lovely with the fabric, it’s voile from Design on Textile, and the quality is absolutely amazing. I fully lined it (the pattern as facings and bias, not lining) with a beautiful soft yummy cotton lawn from Michael Levine, I’m really happy with this dress and Madalena loves it, though I probably should have made a size below; oh well it will last longer. 😀
And then the cardi. I love the cardigan!!! This is such a cool pattern to have, I absolutely love Laura’s version for STYLO (I mean I want one for me!!), but it was this version Celina made that triggered my need to make it! You’ll be happy to know that this will be released as a free pattern by Petit a Petit + Family. YAY
For this I used a green and pink stripe from NOSH Organics, that was generously sponsored by Petite Couture. Wendy has an amazing fabric selection, I really recommend you check it out, I’m swooning over so many but this one is definitely on my wish list! 😉 I can tell you that this cardigan has been on heavy rotation around here, it definitely is Madalena’s’ current favorite, and I’ll definitely be making a lot more!
And now the sweet girl called Francisca. 🙂 For her I decided to make a Stellar Tunic from Figgy’s. I’ve been eyeing this pattern since Marta used it last summer and I knew I wanted to make exactly like her and skip the patchwork sleeve making it in one piece.
I did have to make some alterations because F. was still a bit small for this pattern but I like the final fit, and I definitely can’t wait to make more once she gets big enough. I mixed the White Summer Citrus voile with some dark yellow Flamé cotton knit from NOSH, which is amazing btw, and finished the neckline with dark yellow rib from NOSH, again perfect quality. ❤
I knew I had to make some leggings and I had just got the super cute Fancy Pants Leggings from Titchy Threads, so this was the perfect opportunity to try it out. I used the same fabric as in Madalena’s’ cardigan. They turned out so cute, she looks adorable in them!
So I hope you liked my makings! This was an amazing adventure and I’m really grateful for having had this opportunity. This is an absolutely amazing issue, all the contributors did such and incredible and inspiring job!!
I really have to give a gigantic applause to Celina for combining all these different voices in one cohesive magazine. It’s an absolute joy to flick through its pages!
