Morning in Paradise and the First Snow jerseys

It’s been already a couple of months when Nuppu print company published this Morning in Paradise collection. My daughter loved both turquoise prints and I decided to make her an outfit.

I found first the Ensilumi (First Snow) swan printed organic cotton jersey for the leggings but Salapakka shop didn’t have the other print at that time. However, when I went a bit later to the Nuppu print company studio, the owner Jenni graciously gave me some slightly defective Morning in Paradise print for free, if I made something pretty for the blog out of it! So, thank you!

I started with the leggings. Once more I used my own pattern. It doesn’t have any side seams so the pretty swan print was undisturbed.

I have been developing this tunic pattern for a couple of months. I drafted the pattern with the help of Winifred Aldrich’s book, Metric pattern cutting for children’s wear and babywear (Click the Amazon affiliate link if you are interested in buying the book to support my blog with no extra cost for you!).

Mostly I have been playing with the sleeves which are pretty big in the sloper compared to the RTW garments. Finally, I am starting to feel good about them. The sleeves are in no means tight but, as the whole tunic has some extra room for S to grow into, the sleeves should have that room, too.

I think that this kind of tunics are really handy during the colder seasons. They go well together with leggings but are short enough to be tucked into winter snow trousers.

The defects that had caused the piece of fabric to be removed from the sell-pile were some faint stripes that I managed to mostly avoid with careful placement of the pattern pieces. With the help of my coverstitch machine, I finished the neckline with the band that I made out of the same fabric. The other edges I just turned and coverstitched neatly.

S being silly.
