Celebrating Spring! (I wish)

Yes, it is true Spring started last Friday!! 🙂 But I have to contain my enthusiasm because if it was not in the calendar I would have not noticed! Nevertheless the girls’ wardrobe for the good weather needs to be prepared.

When I started sewing for my girls some of the first patterns I bought were from Oliver + S and as self-taught I loved them. They had great instructions and tips and really made me feel like I could actually make things that looked great and at the same time learn some new (to me) techniques. The fit and design were also great so, I was really enthusiastic and bought a few more patterns that, for some reason, were never made. This pattern was one of those that were supposed to have been made for autumn but, I suppose that for spring will be as good.

The pattern is the blouse 2+2 and I made a size 4 for Little Lady M. in a cotton lawn that will work great for spring or even summer (in UK you never know!). The pattern offers two sleeve options but I’ve chosen the long sleeve because I believe we will make more use of them this way.

I like to see my girls with tunics and jeans or shorts as they are cute and with a girly look, however these garments let them play freely. What I like the most in this blouse is the gathered front and the neckband ties. I considered to make the neckband and the front patch using other fabric but I didn’t found any in my stash that really made me happy with the combo, so I just changed the direction of the print for the patch.

Little Lady M. seems to be shrinking these last days 😦 She was unwell for some days and finally her appetite is back to normal (fingers crossed) but still she looks so tiny… Anyway I think the blouse looks good on her so please good weather maybe you could appear?!

  1. Uau! Ficou mesmo bem. Eu fiz uma há dias mas não fiquei muito contente com o acabamento na parte do franzido. Posso saber como fez o acabamento nessa parte? Obrigada desde já.

  2. Gosto tanto deste molde 🙂 Também fiz imensas para a M. mas curiosamente quase todas de manga comprida. É um molde bem giro para “chamar” a primavera (para quando já nos apetece começar a costurar peças mais light!).
    Estou tentada a experimentar fazer uma versão apenas com uma abertura com 2 ou 3 botões nas costas – acho que é capaz de ficar mais engraçada quando elas já estão mais crescidas.
    PS. As melhoras da M. 🙂

    • Obrigada Ana Sofia 🙂 Apesar da manga o tecido é muito leve, mas ainda assim é fresca demais para o tempo frio que ainda temos neste momento!
      Que excelente ideia a abertura com 2 ou 3 botões, deve ficar muito giro 😉
      Obrigada, a M. já se encontra recuperada, só falta recuperar também o peso que perdeu!

  3. A túnica ficou giríssima e adorei a escolha do tecido (usei agora num vestido um muito parecido). E a tua filhota está com ótimo aspeto ninguém diria que esteve doente. 😀

    • Muito obrigada Tânia. Que giro, gosto muito deste tecido e vou usar semelhante noutra túnica, mas desta vez para a F 😉 Adorava ver o teu vestido!!
      A parte pior foi mesmo não comer nada e ter perdido peso (ela já tem pouco!!), mas já está bem melhor agora 😉
