The Coffee and Thread Tour

The Coffee and Thread blog tour 2017 started yesterday and I am really happy to be part of it. I tested a few of Olga’s patterns and I know how much effort and care she puts in each pattern, so it is an honour to be part of this tour and when Emi asked me if I wanted to take part I didn’t had to think much. Thank you for inviting me! 🙂

Although I love and have made all the dresses, for this tour I decided, along with the girls, to try the Ania tunic as I know that better weather means more outside play and the girls like to look pretty but comfortable, so I know it will get a lot of wearing. Also, it was a pattern I hadn’t tried before!

I made the tunics in the same size, although the girls do have a difference in height. I made size 7 for height with size 5 for length and I am very happy with the fit. It is fitted where it should but with room to play freely.

As usual, Olga was careful to make this tunic pretty inside and out. This is actually one of things I like in Olga’s patterns, she is also careful with good finishing and beautiful insides.

I wanted the girls to match, without looking the same, so I used different fabrics. For F, I used a Liberty Lawn in a colourful print, that I think looks great for summer and matches perfectly with white, navy and denim shorts or jeans, which are the colours she wears the most.

For M I used a white broderie anglaise that I had in my stash for some time and have used before. I know white is not the wisest choice for kids, but I love to see them in white and matches well with almost any colour. I used F’s fabric for the button loop and in the hair bows (I didn’t made them) to make sure they were matching. 😉

Taking these photos was no easy task, as they were particularly “inspired” that day and did not made my life easy. I love how they look in their new tunics! 😊

  2. These Ania tunics are just so pretty! I love how they match together! I think you got some pretty great shots of them together. I know how hard it is… My girls can suddenly decide to play ‘dog and dogowner’ with one of them on hands and knees….

  3. Your fabrics are perfect choices here. They embody the vision I have when looking at this pattern. Classic and beautiful.

  4. I love the fact they are wearing the same pattern made in different fabric. Such a fun effect! I like it better than complete matching, personally. I also love white for kids. Gorgeous tunics! Inspired models – hahahaha
