Madeit Fashion Week – Fold2

Fashion Week poster4

It`s Madeit Fashion Week! I couldn`t be more excited about Anna and Olu`s new Patterncollection! It`s just stunning! Those two ladies made kids fashion in a very pure and beautiful way. Clever patterns with clear lines. There is no pink there is no candy, it`s made for real kids. They offer a few pattern for boys, but they`re actually suitable for girls as well.

I picked two patterns out of the Fold2 collection and sewed tree garments. It was a lot of fun and i`m sure,there will be more Madeit sewing in the next weeks. The instructions are clear and you can see that the graphic is made by a pro! It`s easy and straight forward to work with. And Olu`s humor is shinning through from time to time, what made me smile while sewing.

The skirt is self-drafted, it`s a simple rectangle gathered with an elastic. Fabric found at a market in Italy it`s golden linen. Pretty fancy!

I can remember sitting in the metro in Paris, while the Paris sew social weekend, back in April. When Olu showed a preview of the Petal Fold Playsuit. I was blown away and since this day, I was waiting for this pattern! As playsuits with back opening isn`t something very practical for a two-year old diaper carrier, I was delighted to find out that there is a supplement with the separates. And because I loved the look of the playsuit I made her a dress inspired by it.

Fabrics are from Atelier Brunette and Michael Miller bought at Petite Couture. (I totally forgot where the skirt fabric is from)

The balloon fold dress, which can be worn 3 ways, was my second choice. I just had to try it. It seemed to be genius! And I can tell you it really is. Such a great fit and such a fun and comfy dress. My little bean wore it the whole day after I tried it on. And that`s something really special at the moment! She take it up and down just as she feels like.

Fabric is from a local store. It`s a very lightweight t-shirt knit.

It was a little extra challenge to incorporate some Origami into our blog posts. So what do you think about my big dinosaur? By the way all the honor goes to my `husband` who took his time, yesterday evening folding it, while I was working. I love you!

  1. I love all of your outfits! You always make such beautiful things. And the dress you made using the playsuit — perfection!!!

  2. Love all your fabric choices, your giant dinosaur (where did you get paper that big?) and your clever idea to turn the playsuit into a dress. I didn’t make one for my little one as it’s not that practical for a recently toliet trained two yr old either, but the dress is a great idea.

    • it’s background paper for photoshootings. it comes in rolls 4m wide. but it was to heavy to stand on his own. it hangs from the ceiling with an invisible string.

  3. This turned out super beautiful. Love how you incorporated the Atellier Brunette fabric. And thumbs for your origami-making husband!
