I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
2015 has been such a great year for me on a personal and a professional plan, most of it thanks to you. I’m so grateful and I wish you the very best for the new year to come.

As a thank you gift, I’ve been working on a special pattern for you all. Now it’s time to releave and release it, in time for the Holidays!

silk Bailén top: fabric from Julián López
cotton Bailén dress: fabric from Les trouvailles d’Amandine
Available as a free download, the Bailén Top & Dress pattern is easy to make and wear. The pattern is cut on the bias to give a great fit without addind any type of closure: the front darts and bias cut allow the fabric to follow the curves of the body without restriction. There are two lengths included so you can either make a top or a short dress.
You’ll learn how to sew french seams, a baby hem and to use bias binding to finish the neckline and make straps.
Depending on the fabric you choose, the Bailén pattern can be worn in multiple ways: think of a silk camisole or slip, a rayon summer dress, a cotton voile nightdress…

Find the Bailén pattern on the shop and sign in to download it.
I hope you’ll like it!

top-rousse-silk-sewing-pattern-1This is a top I made last month and I’ve been wearing it quite a lot now. I remember seeing this new pattern by Delphine et Morrissette and thinking “Oh, this is so lovely!” exactly the kind of top you make many times in many fabrics.
top-rousse-silk-sewing-pattern-2top-rousse-silk-sewing-pattern-3The original blouse La Rousse has 3/4 sleeves and is longer than my version. But I had a small length of fabric and I wanted it now for summer. So I made the blouse sleeveless and shorten the bodice by almost 10 cm. I had seen some versions and I knew the original length would be too long for me…at the end, I should have chopped off only 5 cm because when I’m wearing it with this low-rise short, you can see my belly almost all the time 😉

top-rousse-silk-sewing-pattern-4The pattern is well designed, I love the instructions for the flounces, they allow a very neat finish. As for the fabric, this blue and black beauty is from Supercut. Marine was so nice as to send it with an order as it was stained (Marine, where was the stain? I was unable to see it!). It’s a beautiful silk, so soft and with great colors. I love how it moves.What are you making for the summer? Tops, dresses, shorts? Let me know.
