I designed a simple dress for my daughter and sewed it up using pretty heart-printed organic jersey from Paapii.
I can finally reveal the garments I made for three little boys on my Christmas gift list. All the patterns were from the Ottobre design magazine.
This jersey fabric by Shalmiak caught my daughter's attention at Ommel 2018 and she begged me to get it for her. It took some time to make the jersey into a dress but now finally my daughter has a dress she fancied.
I found this linen jersey at the factory remnants. There was just enough to make a long sleeved top by combining Tessuti Mandy and SOI Edie top patterns.
The 1 metre of bubble print jersey was enough to make both a sleeveless top using the Ottobre 4/2011 34. Glow-worm top pattern and a matching skirt.
The Ottobre design magazine 4/2018 19. Space adventurer was a good basic t-shirt pattern for my son. I also had enough fabric to make a matching hat.
As part of my Sensible Sewing Challenge I made a stripy Lago tank top using the free pattern by Itch to Stitch. Here is my review of the pattern!
I tested the new Sheona pattern by Athina Kakou. It is a relaxed jersey shift dress that has plenty of options and is easy and quick to sew.
In the picture above is my new nephew who was born in June! As her only auntie, I was very keen on sewing something cute for him.
I knew that Kielo is a very popular pattern but would it work for me? I decided to find out! I bought the pattern and then went around the booths until I found a nice organic jersey for it at Nuppu print company with a beautiful print designed by Satu Kontinen.
