Flosstyle galore



In February, I gave you two posts on Flosstyle's Zoo pattern, but I could have given you more. Today, I am finally showing you the rest of my Flosstyle collection. Flosstyle has just released a free pattern piece for a long sleeve add-on to the Zoo pattern, making the content of this post very relevant again! On a second nore, summer is slowly approaching here, which is where the pattern is intended for. Related to my previous post, Lauren S. do not forget to email me about the give away!



In February, I showed you the reversible knit romper and a zipper tutorial on a woven romper. I had also sewed a reversible woven romper though. One side has bright yellow flower from Soft Cactus. The other side was a scrap left from making this blouse, and is also from Soft Cactus.The pattern itself explains a way to make the romper reversible, but I of course chose an option that was not supposed to be reversible. I just made it work though. Would anyone be interested in knowing how I did it, for a future tutorial?



I have been trying to improve my photography skills, and the use of props is advocated everywhere. Using props confuses the hell out of me, but I am trying. You can only learn through trying right? I asked my daughter to search for something dark and she brought me the witch hat, and we just rolled with it. We had a blast during the shoot, and that is the most important part.


There were a few days between when I cut the dress and sewed it. In the mean time the arm cycle was adjusted in the pattern.  I did not wanted to trow away the pieces that I had cut, so I just added contrasting orange to make it the correct size. Flosstyle pattern usually come with a super inspiring modification section, and so does this pattern. I could not help myself to come up with another type of modification though. I added elastic to the waist, instead of tying straps. The straps look great but my daughter can not tie them herself, so I went for ease.



The last Flosstyle project that I am showing you today is not from the Zoo collection. This is a hack of the Super Suit Set. I cut the bodice pattern pieces around the waist and ruffled a skirt on it. Easy peasy. My youngest refuses to wear anything else than dresses. She is a princess, she tells me about ten times a day.



I attempted to a sibling shoot all in Flosstyle. Getting them all to look and no socks showing was apparently too much to hope for. You can see the dress is very versatile in size. The Zoo collection officially goes up to a size four, but my kids are relatively skinny.
