Celebrating Summer – Day 2

We are on Day 2 and today we have something to show you you that’s not one of the summer dresses.  I don’t know about you, but my Little Miss will not wear a dress everyday.  Sometimes they just need to rip and run, but they still need to be cool in the summer.  Right?

Well Tania from Kreatita is showing you how to stay cool this summer without being in a dress.

Guestpost: Mantica – Litore

Guestpost by MoonStar-Wondermirakel

If you haven’t seen a Mantica Dress yet, you’ve probably been cut off from all social media for the past week.
Especially in the Sofilantjes Sew & Show group on Facebook about 150 Mantica dresses have been shown. The Buy-Sew-Show-Win contest with the hashtag ‘FreeMantica’ might have something to do with it.

 

Misschien zag u nog geen enkele Mantica Jurk, maar dan bent u wellicht afgesloten geweest van sociale media de afgelopen week.
Vooral in de Sofilantjes Sew & Show groep op Facebook werden er ongeveer 150 Mantica jurken gedeeld. Maar de Koop-Naai-Toon-Win actie met de hashtag ‘FreeMantica’ zal daar wel iets mee te maken gehad hebben.

Sylva Top and Tunic Release

Ready, set, gooooooo. Ready to release this awesome looking, very quick sew, beginner friendly new pattern. The Sylva top and Tunic.

We choose the name Sylva in Latin. It is a translation for wood, woodland, forest. We love the forest and this tunic and top would be perfect to wear to the forest. It’s the perfect pattern for mid seasons. Like the one we are in right now and with the three different sleeve options it can be adjusted to all seasons. Plus there is a little extra ease in there to sew it up in an heavier knit if you wish…

Options? Yes, ma’am. We always have options. Want to see them? No problem. Let’s start with a summary of options shall we?You get:
* three different sleeve lengths
* two neckline options
* two bodice lengths

First up. The V-neck option. My favorite and the most simple option there is. This option is beginner friendly. And if you do not create a front and back with your choosen fabric, the perfect option for your child to get dressed by themselves. There will not be a front or back so getting dressed will never be easier for them… I see a win win situation.

Guest post: Two Cicero hacks

Hi, it is Miranda from Inspinration and today I am showing how to recreate the two alternative Cicero looks that I sewed. The Cicero has two neckline options, a collar or a hood, but you can combine them as well. Anne pitched the idea to me back in January and I overcomplicated it a bit by not wanting the hood next to the zipper. I sewed this combi already back in January. I was planning to sew another because I was not a hundred percent happy with it, but piled up my sewing plate too high, and did not come around to it. I did sew another alternative Cicero, which I am also showing you today. I have a hard time staying interested in one plan for long, and in the mean time I have created 100 new ones. So, I have not figured out the optimal shape of the hacked hood, but better some guestimation for you than nothing right?

Vandaag laat ik (Miranda van Inspinration) zien hoe ik mijn twee alternative Cicero’s naaide. De Cicero heeft een kraag of een kap, maar je kan deze twee onderdelen ook combineren. Anne pitchte mij het idee in Januari en ik naaide toen een gehackte versie. Ik maakte het natuurlijk net iets gecompliceerder dan de twee dingen aan elkaar naaien, ik wilde namelijk niet het dik zou worden voor bij de rits waar kap en kraag samen zouden komen. Ik was echter niet helemaal tevreden en was van plan er nog een te naaien voor de tutorial. Maar toen kwamen er nog honderd nieuwe ideeën in mijn hoofd en een tweede gehackte kwam er niet van, wel nog een andere (veel kleinere) hack. Ik vrees dat van meer uitstel afstel komt en ook deze nog niet optimale versie zal hopelijk iemand op nieuwe ideeën brengen.

Celebrating Stoffenfeest

Guestpost by Patricia of MoonStar – WonderMirakel

We’ve been partying a lot last week! Stoffenfeest is celebrating it’s first birthday. Instead of receiving gifts, Stoffenfeest is giving them away!!!
When Guus, owner of the webshop Stoffenfeest, asked me if I wanted to enter her Celebration week, I did not hesitate one second! The thing is, this week of celebrations took place right when my miss Wonder turned 8 (last Saturday). What better way to celebrate 2 birthdays then to make a dress for one using fabric of the other?

We zijn al een hele week aan het feesten! Stoffenfeest is één jaar geworden. In plaats van cadeautjes te krijgen geeft Stoffenfeest ze weg!!!
Toen Guus, eigenaar van de webshop Stoffenfeest, me vroeg of ik wilde deelnemen aan haar feestweek, twijfelde ik geen seconde! Het leuke is dat deze feestweek precies gelijk valt met miss Wonder haar 8e verjaardag (afgelopen zaterdag). Kan je je een betere manier bedenken om 2 verjaardagen te vieren dan het maken van een jurk voor de ene met stof van de andere?
