KANA’s Standard for Kids: First Dress

A few weeks ago I spotted the new books coming out for this summer and right away I ordered them. One of them is KANA’S STANDARD FOR KIDS, it is such a gorgeous book with patterns for little girls, I can not wait to make most of the patterns in here, and yesterday I finished the first one.

Hace algunas semanas vi que ya estaban saliendo los nuevos libros de costura para el verano y sin vacilar los ordené. Uno de esos libros es de KANA’S STANDARD FOR KIDS, es un libro tan precioso con patrones divinos para niñas, es que estoy que no aguanto por hacer cada uno de los modelos, justo ayer terminé el primero.

Fabric is perfect for this dress, happy print, light weight, 100% cotton and it has the colors that my daughter likes right now. I  got the material from Fabric.com and is by Rashida Coleman Hale”MOONLIT”. Pattern is B-4. The only thing I changed was the armholes, they were to wide-open and decided to close them a little higher up.

La tela es perfecta para este vestido, es alegre, no tiene mucho peso, cien por ciento algodón y tiene justo los colores que a mi hija le gustan. La tela la compre de la tienda en linea Fabric.com y es diseñada por Rashida Coleman Hale “MOONLIT”. El patrón es B-4. La única cosa que le modifiqué a este patrón fueron los agujeros de las mangas, estaban originalmente muy amplias y decidí cerrarlas un tantito más alto.

Now that I have shared this dress I can go and see if I can try out my new presser feet. I got a blind stitch and a roller hem. I’m looking for a couple of projects that involve this two techniques!

There you go, two post in one day…I hope not to get lost for too long from here.

Hang in there, I will come back with more.

Happy Week!

Ahora que he compartido este vestido con ustedes ya me puedo ir a jugar un rato con mis nuevos “pies” para mi máquina: uno para ruedo ciego y el otro para hacer dobladillos finos  y pequeños, ya estoy viendo en que puedo usar estas técnicas.

Allí está, dos publicaciones en un solo día…espero no perderme por tanto tiempo de este rinconcito.

No se me vayan, aguantenme que ya pronto regreso con más!

Feliz Semana!!!!

Finding Inspiration these days!

For the last month and a half we have been sick with flu, cold, and last week my kids got some immunizations that were a couple of months over due. We still have a dry cough that won’t go away no matter how much tea, honey, ginger we take, it is still there and hopefully we are almost done with it.

I haven’t done much sewing, oh, wait…maybe I did, but do not have any photos from those projects. I made two cute Inari Dresses, one out of Rayon and the other out of a nice light linen that I got from Miss Matatabi a while ago, but once I get photos ready I will share them with you, hopefully I won’t take me months for that.

Today I want to share a pair of cute shorts I made for my daughter a week ago, it is a bit cold still but I think the warm days are around the corner to wear shorts and skirts and sleeveless tops.

These shorts are super easy and simple to make. Fabric is Nani Iro Pocho in silver pink and got it maybe 4 years ago in Canada at the Greenwood Quiltery. Love the metallic details. Beautiful fabric it feels like linen but it is a double gauze. Pattern is LESSON 1 A from this great Japanese Pattern Book “LESSON BOOK” by Yuki Katagai.

I made this dress a while ago, maybe a year ago and like so many other clothes I haven’t been able to write a post about it.

So quick note, this one is my favorite one and I have done it twice now. Love the print with kitten faces (Girls are crazy about kittens lately, do you know why?) Fabric I got it from Miss Matatabi , and pattern is B2  from this good pattern book from my friend’s Etsy store Pompadour24.

Thank you for visiting, hope you had a great Easter weekend, we did here in Half Moon Bay!

Big hugs!!!!
