Here’s a little work … or rather a great work for Eline. If you see lots of kits, wallets and other accessories, I prefer to make clothes for my kids and those of others …
So this jacket was started in June and ended in September. After the photo shoot on a mannequin, I lengthened the sleeves because these kids grows too fast 🙂
I followed the pattern, I’ve just added a hood and some embellishment on the round neck, and along the buttonholes.
The set is made of coated cotton and cotton satin lining (MT). Pretty buttons are from our village’s haberdashery.
For a cousin’s wedding in early July, I made the outfits for children following the dress code without really knowing it!
For Nolan, I made a vest out from the Burda 2012 series, gray and white cotton linen with thin black stripes tennis.
For the vest: two false pockets in the colors of the liner and false placket in the back.
The pants has been made from the last Ottobre magazine. I added false pockets behind.
For Eline, a princess dress was required and in order to give it even greater significance, I added a tulle petticoat home-made model. The dress is made of white taffeta embroidered and adorned with silver sequins. The bust is lined with white cotton.
The dress is essentially from a Ottobre’s pattern, with as always some changes, like the length. The Day, the little girl wore a pink satin sash with a big knot. She was almost as beautiful as the bride.
Now up to the photos.
Eline is pretty, she is a (good old fashioned) real girl who loves beautiful fabrics, hearts and any glittering things !
So here is the polar jacket that I have made on the same model as the sport jacket.
Eline has long legs, wondering who she looks like (perhaps her father :-))… and a wasp waist. The problem is to find a sweatsuit in which she looks like something else than a bag. Then after several catastrophic fittings in shops, I decided to make her a customized sweatsuit. And a sweatsuit that pleases to her father who has a sweatsuit phobia, who knows why 🙂
Jacket and pants are from an Ottobre’s pattern. Hood and stars are coming from a starry fabric purchased before her birth.
The young lady was happy, her daddy also…and our kitten also !
Here are our kids’s cousins for the baptism of the youngest one.
I proposed to make clothes for all of them, with the same trends of colors and fabrics. Nolan and his cousin (11 days older) are dressed in a cotton and linen reversible vest. The inside is made with a starry cotton for Nolan, and a cotton with peas for his cousin. The pants comes from an Ottobre pattern (with some modifications), with two pockets in the back with a reminder of the lining of jackets.
The youngest cousin wears an Ottobre pants and a vest similar tothe other boys, in striped cotton and peas (like his brother).
Eline wears a skirt in linen and cotton (Burda Occasional model ), a butterfly sleeve blouse and a bolero (home made pattern)
they were really beautiful, and I was also proud of them !
