Today I’m having a little fun with a group of german designers. We exhanged patterns and are now showcasing what we did with the patterns that we got. I’ll have one post today and one on thursday, so stay tuned. I started off with a little kid sewing for my daughter. I chose the Bethioua Kids pattern by Elle Puls, which is available in English here. The remarkable feature of the tee, is how the sleeves build up part of the back bodice. This can be used for very nice design elements especially when using striped fabrics. These build a nice V-shape in the back. Time to go all the way with your stripe matching!
I worked with a beautiful organic jersey with yellow and white stripes from the Stoffbüro. This is as summery as it gets, right? I went with a size 110 in width and 122 to in length (german sizes are basically the height of the children in cm). Elke gives a perfect example in her instructions how to adjust the sizing. I was super lucky as it even was exactly the 110/122 example. Just what I needed ;)
Bethioua is a super quick sew (Although it took me half a year to finish the women’s version as I was procrastinating to finish the hem). When I was done sewing, I knew that for me the yellow and white stripes would be perfect as is, but my daughter needs a little bit more to really like her clothes. I have a stash with iron-on cut-outs that I got from friends and shops. We found the glitter rain cloud and drops and it was just the perfect contrast to the sunny shirt. I got the cloud one year ago from SuperCut for their #parissewsocial sponsoring. Sometimes you just have to wait for the right project. Btw. if you have a silhouette and want to cut something similar, the cutting files by pedilu might be interesting for you!
I really like how this turned out. My daughter is happy and so am I! Now, I can’t wait to show you my woman version of the Bethioua. Soon…
