Finch Fabric: Candy Monster release



As you know, I love jersey and I love border prints. Finch Fabrics brings those two loves together in many of their fabrics. I have bought several prints in the past and I made this dress, this set and this shirt. This time, I was allowed to test one of the new fabrics! I got a large piece (well over a meter after washing) to make into whatever. Until now, I always used relatively small pieces, so this time, with such a big amount of fabric, I actually made five pieces.



Although I made five pieces, the main and first plan was a dress for my youngest. The dress is a mix between the Nivalis* and Solis*. I made a mix between these two patterns before, and even wrote a tutorial. For this mix you have to adjust the width of the Nivalis bodice to the width of the Solis bodice (or else the skirt will not fit). I also used the height of the (front) Solis bodice to determine the length I had to cut the Nivalis, to create a bodice. I made soft pleats, to show off the print of the skirt better. This is my first Nivalis with collar and I am over the moon that my daughter is not bothered by it. I love the look.




For my son I made a Semper*, shockingly without alterations. For my middle one I made a Hibernis*, also straight by the pattern, I know I am still amazed myself. I wanted to show off how well the main fabric goes with different colors and prints. I went through my fabric closet and found several combinations that I wanted to try. My middle daughter got a sweet style by pairing the fabric with pastel prints. My son a cooler version, combined with red stripes. I fell in love with the selvages of this fabric, I just had to use them. In my son's shirt you can see them on the front piece and on the sleeve bindings. I did not use ribbing, but jersey for the neckline of the Semper, the neckline is a standing up because of it.



For my eldest, I made a Liv skirt (free pattern) and a hacked the ADVT*. I had to adjust the Liv skirt patterns a bit. I wanted as much of the Monster print on it as possible (the pockets where the bottle neck), and I only wanted one Monster. I think it worked out rather well. From the last remnants I squeezed out an ADVT front, but I added a diagonal on the front. On one hand I did not have enough fabric, on the other hand because I liked these shirts a lot. The back of the skirt is made from the stripes fabric only.




The fabric is now available through the Finch Fabrics website, but it might also become soon available through your favorite fabric shop.

    1. Haha, ik was zelf verre van tevreden over de groepsfoto, dit was de enge acceptabele waar de kleren daadwerkelijk zichtbaar waren. Ze kijken nu vanaf een afstandje naar de telefoon van papa en roepen pokemon namen ;)
