Coffee and thread – blogtour 2017

A couple of weeks ago, while checking my emails, I was surprised and happy to find one from Emi.
Emi is one of the sweetest persons I know on Instagram, always in for a sweet and supportive comment and she sews the most beautiful garments for herself and her daughters.
In this email, she asked me if I wanted to join a blogtour organized by Olga (Coffee and thread patterns), featuring all of her patterns.
You can most certainly imagine I didn’t have to think twice to say yes and today it’s my turn to show you my creation.

I just love all the patterns Olga designed, you should definitely take a look over here and discover her talent.

Because of the fact that all the patterns are amazing, I did have a hard time choosing which one to make but eventually I decided on the Eleena dress because of the featured inverted pleat.

Choosing which fabric to use was another hard decision and I gave it a lot of thought.
After all, I didn’t want to disappoint because did you see who else is joining this tour?

To make a long story short, I picked two uni colored soft cottons out of my stash, cut them info pieces and sewed them back together.
I cut the front panel from this newly designed fabric and used the plain blue for the back.
Without further ado, I present to you, my Eleena dress, size 8:

I’m so happy with the way it turned out and the colors work so well together.
As you can see in the next pictures, Sterre had so much fun during the shoot.
Last sunday, we enjoyed the most warm and sunny day this year, perfect time to play and shoot.

 

For the collar, I improvised with the color scheme to make it pop and I’m fairly happy with the result 🙂

And so is Sterre…

The pattern includes 3 sleeve options but I went for a sleeveless version this time.

The pictures were taken at my most favourite place in our village, set by an old mill where there is a fantastic view and lots and lots of flowers.
In every picture, my girl is holding her flowers tightly in her hands, she just couldn’t stop picking them.
Very recently, the old mill was joined by a much younger brother.
And although the purpose of this windmill is different, I love the way they are joined together in the next picture.
Past and present in one image…

To end my story, I’m just including some more pics, just because of the bright and vibrant colors, don’t you just love that?
Colors always make me smile 🙂
