Chouchou & Cie – Maïlys in Mara in Brittany!

By 25/07/2014Mara-contest

I discovered the patterns of Marte for the first time via the Louisa Dress Tour and directly wanted to sew my own version.
I loved it so I was impatient to sew my version of the Mara blouse and was even more excited to participate to this big blogtour. I bought a few months ago some lovely Liberty Betsy fluo-thé bias tape – just love it! – and I wanted to associate it with the fabric of an old dress of mine.
The Mara blouse was just the perfect pattern to do so!

I really like the fact that you have so many options. For this version (this will definitively not be the last one) I chose the butterfly sleeves. I love the result.

The 7 YO was perfect for Maïlys (who is 7 YO ;-) ), I just made a few modifications. No third button for my daughter’s comfort – she can be a little picky sometimes and for me to add the bias tape I love so much inside the collar, that I also put inside the sleeves.

    Nice version for older girls. Have to keep that in mind!

    this is a beautiful version! I love the solid fabric, and the bias tape just adds the right pop of color! Great job!

    Your fabric choices make it look very sophisticated. I love that you used the same colourful fabric for the piping AND the button loops. Nice touch.
