Mara blog action in threefold
When Marte of Compagnie M launch the idea of her Big Blog Action I didn’t hesitate. I love her patterns and this was the perfect opportunity to start printing, taping and cutting. After a while, we received the secret message that we would work with the the mara blouse pattern. I was really excited because although I bought the pattern already, I haven’t created anything yet.
No hesitation, I had already the perfect fabric in my closet; the woopsy daisy fabric by Soft Cactus. I used three different colors; pink, blue and yellow. One color for each one of my girls. Before starting to cut the fabric, I measured up the girls, as advised by Marte. Finally I chose to make the sizes 3 and 7 years old. The pattern is provided with a very clear ‘HOW TO’ with clear pictures and tips and tricks. This made that the making of the blouse was not so difficult and by the third one I sewed a lot quicker.
For all blouses I chose the same sleeve-option, but there are a lot of different options available in the pattern. For the pleating in the front, I followed Marte’s pattern only for the pink blouse, because I tried something differently for the two other blouses. The pattern is available from size 1 until 10.
To conclude: I love the pattern. Good news if you want to try it yourself. I am honored to be a part of the blog action. Hopefully you enjoyed the result. Curious about my blog: http://mumendemiekes.blogspot.be/
