“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 😉

Well Hello Everyone!! Yes its me, I’m back to sewing and posting more regularly, YAY! Sorry for the unforeseen absence but you know how life gets in our way sometimes… But what matters is that I got my sewjo back so hopefully I’ll be on track from now on. heheh 😉
I just started M’s A/W wardrobe, and after realizing that the girl will be needing so many things this season gahhh, not sure how I’ll handle it all hahah, I decided to start with a favorite pattern and easy sew, the Hoppe Jumpsuit from StraightGrain Patterns.
Since I had sewn it last year for the girls I already knew that the pattern was perfect and I went on without looking back. Just made a few changes to the neckline finish by skipping the facing pieces and adding rib bands, yours truly the sucker for easy hahahah!
I was obsessing with this print from NOSH the first moment I laid eyes on it, and on thursday as I contemplated what would be my first sew for M I looked at it and it was clear it had to become a Hoppe! heheh It’s PYRY in Pheasant and Black and you can see it here, its perfect as every single fabric I’ve seen from Nosh so far. The rib is also from NOSH and you can see it here, I usually buy their 1×1 rib but this 2×1 looks really cool for some projects.
This is size 8 for my 8 year old and I’m really pleased with how it fits, it’s a bit long still because I want it to last, these kids grow too fast!!
You can get your Hoppe Jumpsuit here.
Hoppe you’re just has happy as me with this comeback! heheh 😀
Thanks a million for stopping by! Hugs! ❤
I know I know, its mid May already but better late than never right? heheh Yep I’m talking about my April Project Sew It make; last months’ theme was dresses and I decided to try the new Chalk and Notch pattern the Farrah Dress.
I’m so in Love with this dress, the pattern is perfect, but no surprise there since I already know Gabriela always delivers amazingness. The Farrah comes with two different views both in tunic and dress length and I just adore the ruffles on this one. To be honest I was a bit afraid of how they’d look on me since I have broad shoulders but I’m sold on this look.
I was planning to sew it all in woven but since I didn’t have enough of the main I went rogue and paired it with gorgeous black flamé jersey from NOSH. The main fabric is an organic cotton voile from Cloud9, bought last year at Retrosaria, I was immediately hooked on the print and couldn’t help myself in buying some, happy I did because I really love how this dress turned out, perfect for Summer!
Although my sewing isn’t perfect I absolutely loved making this dress, the construction of the armhole with the “gusset” piece is so much fun. Also love the asymmetrical side seam, all cool details that make this dress super special. This is size 6 and I only have good thoughts on the fit, yep Gabriela knows what she’s doing. ❤
Unfortunately I don’t have photos on the back, well actually I don’t have many photos of the dress… but I guess you can get an idea from these few. 😀
You can get the Farrah Blouse & Dress pattern here.
Lets see if I’m still able to sew and blog this months’ project sew it make in time. heheh I’ve been delayed since I’ve decided to start selling some of my handmades YAY, if you’re interested you can check out my FB shop here, it’s just a group for now but I’m planning to make an Easy shop soon. 😉
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs. ❤
