Chalk and Notch first anniversary and a new pattern!

It has been one year since Chalk and Notch released the first pattern and since then three more great patterns were released! I’ve tested a couple of them and I’ve made one more so I know how much effort and hard work Gabriela puts in them so that the final product is excellent!

This week was released the Waterffall Raglan, a top and dress with three sleeve lengths and an optional pocket, from sizes 12 months to 12 years.

This pattern is intended for knits and it has a very girly look with the ruffle which made it a winning for my girls. Comfortable and girly are hard to beat!

I tested size 6, for M and during the test I made her two but I couldn’t resist and already made another one that I didn’t had the opportunity to photograph yet but you can check a sneak peek at my IG account.

The one M is wearing is a top in size 6, with long sleeves and no modifications, using an Art Gallery fabric from Maçãs d’Amor that M picked herself, surprising me for not being pink! I really love this fabric both for the print and of course the quality.

When F saw her sister’s new top she asked me if I could make her one as well and so I did. For F I made a size 7, again with long sleeve and without modifications, using also an Art Gallery fabric from Maçãs d’Amor but with a different print.

I might be partial on this one, but I really love this pattern. My girls recently started to ask me for more knits, so this is perfect for me that like to see them with girly clothes and a perfect agreement for us.

During the test and after I saw so many wonderful and inspiring versions. If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend you to visit these blogs. So inspiring! 🙂

  1. I love how well both tops work together without being matching. I can’t wait to see your other version too…it’s going to be so good!
