Sewing Up Spring Blog tour

If we are thinking about sewing up spring my first thought was florals and this sew is a bit floral 😉 There is floral linen lining.

I decided to go with Twig + Tale Traveller cape for this blog tour. Getting lighter clothes, more colors and florals is totally spring for me. This beautiful travellers cape is made out of Wool blend outer and Linen lining. Totally warm enough for our cold spring (It is still around 2C outside for us) and such a classic piece of clothing. DD wore it to a grocery store and there were many people who complimented her look 🙂

Color me lucky – Pantone spring ’17

pantone spring 2017.jpg
When I was trying to decide, which Pantone 2017 color to pick I had struggles. I wanted to pick Pale Dogwood or Hazelnut for myself, but at the same time thought about fabric I have in my stash. I came to a conclusion that I need to use my pretties from my inventory, so I decided to choose that beautiful green sweat I had. So I decided that greenery will be the color for this tour. Fabric chosen, now onto pattern. I only had 1m of it so something for me wasn’t going to happen, instead I had to choose something for DD. I thought until I saw her new love for her dolly and suddenly an idea came to my mind. What if I make them kinda matching outfits. A joggers and a hat. So there I was, trying to find a pattern for this smaller than usual doll. I remembered that I had Juniper joggers from Striped Swallow Designs and this has both dollie and DD size. Then there was question of hats, Dollies hat is Petite Stitchery & co free beanie in size doll, but since it is getting warmer I wanted something lighter for DD. I remembered that I have the Slouchy Beanie by Heidi & Finn, so hers is this, size 6m-2y.
Long story short – patterns chosen, fabric chosen, time to print and cut. All of the patterns were easy to print and tape (all except Heidi & Finn has layers). I cut them out and started serging. Then came the first problem. Juniper joggers size 2T inseams are different length!
All of the patterns I have gotten for free so total bargain! 😀

So here she is, in her beautiful greenery joggers and Bunny hat, made out of softest summer sweat I have ever touched!
