New Atelier Brunette fabrics!

By 01/05/2015Blog

In Paris I got the chance to get my hands on some beautiful new Atelier Brunette fabrics! The quality is amazing. This fabric was not only my personal favourite, so I’m sure you’ll get some more inspiration soon! :)

As I was going through my purchased PDF patterns I stumbled upon this dress. A free paper fan pattern by Anna Maria Horner. Actually it was one of the first patterns I’ve ever pinned. Don’t know why it took me this long to make it. I think the design is amazing. I love the pleats at the front and the asymmetrical back.

Although technically it’s not the most sophisticated dress ever, I’m sure more will follow. I made this dress in only 3 hours time. Just two pattern pieces and 3 rectangles!

Nore was really happy to spend some time just with me. So we enjoyed taking those pictures a lot. That’s why there are soo many. ;)

Both fabrics are bought in Paris. I think it’s clear which one is the Atelier Brunette one!? I bought the grey fabric together with Nina in one of the amazing fabric coupon stores around Montmartre! Nina is the best fabric shopping friend ever! I hope to meet her and her lovely family again….

I will dedicate a blogpost to our Paris adventure on Monday, but I probably there’s no need to tell you that it was amazing ? I bought a big pile of fabrics for about 50euro, got spoiled with a lot of goodies (including my first Liverty of London fabric!) and got the chance to meet 15 great European seamstresses. On Monday I will share a link to a great give-away because we (or better Annika & Gioia)  didn’t forget you of course… To be continued!!

    Oooo, ik wacht ook zo ongeduldig op de nieuwe stofjes van atelier brunette! Mooi verwerkt! Benieuwd naar al je avonturen in Parijs!

    • Compagnie M. says:

      Bedankt Sylvia! Ik vind Nore in elk geval wel mooi staan met dit ‘romantische’ kleedje. Een stijl die ik nog wel eens wil proberen! M

  • Mooi! Ze staat er prachtig mee! En bedankt voor de tip van het patroon, er staat er weer eentje op de lijst bij deze!

  • Maarika says:

    Oh I love it – such a beautiful little dress. I’ll have to take a closer look at the pattern!

  • Ilaria says:

    It’s so lovely. The fabric and the pattern! I have that pattern too, but I’ve never made the dress. I think it will be my next project!

  • Jenya says:

    What a special treat to spend a day just the two of you :) Nore looks super cute in her new dress. The fabrics are simply gorgeous. Going to check out the pattern now.

    • Compagnie M. says:

      Thanks Jenya. I think Nore looks great in this more ‘romantic’ style! :)

  • Hema says:

  • nina says:

  • An says:

    Heel geslaagd! De stof is prachtig, maar het patroontje zeker ook. Laat er zo nog maar komen!

  • Evelien Trog says:

    Hey Marte,
    ook ik was instantly in love op je kleedje. Plots zag ik het licht en de stofjescombi die hier al lang ligt te wachten op een patroon, zou er mi perfect voor zijn. Maar, het is tricot… Denk je dat dat doenbaar zou zijn?

    • Compagnie M. says:

      Ik denk dat tricot geen optie is voor dit modelletje. Het vraagt om een ‘licht’ stofje. M

  • deborah ingelrelst says:

    Toen ik doorklikte naar de link voor het patroontje, bleek dit niet meer te bestaan :(
    Hoe geraak ik aan dit patroontje? Kan iemand mij helpen?
    Ik vind het resultaat hierboven prachtig, en wil er graag ook zelf mee aan de slag…
    Ziet er goed te doen uit voor een beginner?

    • Bieke says:

      Heb je ondertss het patroontje gevonden? Ik zou het ook graag gebruiken. Tips zijn welkom 😊

    I’ve enjoyed discovering your site, and have purchased several patterns. Do you know if it’s possible to still acquire this sweet pattern? I was unable to kind link on the Anna Maria Honer website.
    Many thanks.
