Hi there, Compagnie M. lovers! Sophie here from C’est la vie.
I am so honored to be part of this Mara Tour. I had great fun sewing this blouse as the Mara pattern is a very quick and easy pattern. I love the retro look it has in common with all the other patterns created by Compagnie M.
For my Mara, I chose this print by April Rhodes from her amazing collection: Arizona. I had shorts for my girl in another print from the same collection I wanted to match.
The buttons are the cutest thing: blue flowers with a little shinny “diamond” in the middle: as you can imagine they were chosen by my daughter!
My girl is obsessed with horses and loves to predend she is a native American!! This Mara and the shorts create the perfect outfit for my little “Skwa”!! All it takes is a dreamcatcher and an bow and arrow to complete the outfit!
We love this blouse at home and I can imagine there will be many more. The Mara blouse is a quick project with a great impact. It creates an eye catching garment and there are so many options! I think the next one will be a dress version: the Mara dresses I have seen on this blog have truly inspired me!
Thank you Marte for inviting me to this tour! I am so glad to have sewn my own version of your gorgeous blouse!
