Yesterday my middle daughter was looking over my shoulder into my fabric closet. She pointed at a Lillestoff fabric with witches on them and claimed it (which is probably related to the fact that she shares her name with a famous little witch), she needed something with it, and she needed it now! Her wish is my command and I cut a Julia from it. I had not sewn her one yet and she is in need of almost every type of garment.
combined it with two purple fabrics that were on the top of my pile
because I used them for this project as well. From the light purple only
scraps remained (I made another middle daughter project with it which
only needs to be hemmed), too little fabric is one of those situations
in which my creativity peaks and I did some interesting color blocking
on the sleeves and waistband. The contrasting color in the waistband is
something a friend (that does not have a blog) did, and I liked it a
I cut a higher collar, because it still is kind a
winter. My daughter really likes photo shoots and this time she was
doing all kind a poses she remembered from earlier sessions. The animal
on the shoulder picture will probably become her signature style. After I took the pictures down from the camera I saw that the waist band blocking doesn't show up clearly on any of the modelled pictures. You just have to trust me that it looks nice.
This week I got a Liebster award nomination, I am writting a post on that one for a bit later.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a
comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have
to assist me if you choose something different than English, German,
Dutch or Hungarian).
