All the colors

Springbomber__013

Mummy, I would like to have a jacket in all the colors of spring. That was my girls request. Who am i, to say something against that. I took her to my sewing room and started to take some suitable fabrics out of my stash. This beautiful flower fabric was the first one and she immediately knew, that it should be this one and no other. It`s a slightly brushed cotton twill and it`s super soft.

So I took this fabric, added some sparkle and turned it into a beautiful little bomber. She really wants to wear it every single day. To see her face when it was done and ready to wear… priceless! It`s allways a good idea to let her choose the fabric she loves the most.

It was a joy to sew. Piping, lining, pockets, collar. It took me some time, but I loved every single step. She looks so cute in it! I used an Ottobre pattern from Issue 01/2015. I made it one size bigger than necessary. She will be able to wear it in autumn as well and hopefully still in spring next year. Otherwise, I didn`t made any changes to the pattern.

The dress she wears under the jacket is a little sneak peek of the Apron Dress by Lolah likes. It will hopefully be released soon. Be on the luck out for it, I really like the pattern! I`m a bit jealous every time she wears it. I`ll have to make one for myself. If i think about it… i need the bomber and the dress.

  1. What an amazing blog! I am impressed with your sewing! Stylish, simple and inspiring – makes me want to grab my sewing mashine and make something like that NOW 🙂

  2. Love that whole outfit and even better in real life. Ha, I can’t believe I had that bomber jacket pattern all along and I never realised it was the same one. Yours is definitely more appealing than the pink one in the mag.

  3. This whole outfit is adorable!! I want it for myself, too! That bomber jacket is so beautiful in the floral fabric. She has excellent taste 🙂
