Bellelien : Bubble Mara

By Monday,21 July,2014Mara-contest

I’m a huge fan of the patterns of Marte, especially the Mara blouse pattern. My daughter, Lien, loves to play outside. I think that for these outdoor activities a dress is less practical compared to pants in combination with a nice blouse. Including this blogtour, it is now the third time I used the Mara blouse pattern (see my blog: http://webshopbellelien.blogspot.be
However, this time, I was determined to add some creativity of my own… I present you the Bubble Mara!

I didn’t alter the pattern a lot, but I decided to add my own finishing touch: smocking! In this way, I created a cute bubble effect! I love this technique, it is easy to apply and the result is also nice! For the seam, I used a rolled hem.

The fabric I selected was one of Cotton+Steel… damn I love this collection! The Cotton+Steel fabric is very versatile, the combinations you can make with this fabrics are endless. I decided to combine the fabric with a gorgeous petrol piping I created myself.

So.. did I already mention it? I love the Mara! And my daughter Lien is also a huge fan as you can see. I hope we inspired you to sew a version of your own!
