In September I’ve sewn my first Julia sweater with a fabric from Bambiblauw! When Lieselot saw me at the La Maison Victor fair, she asked me whether this fabric would be interesting for sewing my adult version of the Julia pattern. Well: I think it’s amazing. The print is unique, the texture is special and you can only purchase this fabric at Bambiblauw. She has four fabrics in this range and they are all awesome. A fabric that doesn’t need for a complex pattern, like the new Julia for women!
Together with the great vintage style fabric, I purchased a piece of super soft denim like jersey. I showed this fabric already in this Julia, but actually the women version was already finished a long time when I blogged about Lisa’s new sweater…
In the end, I realised that I didn’t have enough fabric and had to split the back of the sweater and insert a small pieces of the denim jersey. The testers seem to love this idea because I’ve several version like this already! :)
The testers are ‘working’ very hard on their Julia sweaters. I’ve seen amazing creations so far! One of the outcomes of the test is the need for more neckline variations! This is the first option I’m showing you, but in the final pattern I’ll include 4 different styles.
Next week I’ll show my 6 other Julia sweaters! I know: I have a new wardrobe by now. But the Julia is such a quick project and you have so many options. I kind of got addicted to my own pattern and the alternation some of the testers will present you in the tour.
So yesterday Bjorn and I hired a very good lens and went on a big tour in Antwerp to shoot all these new Julia sweaters. Our first location was the Wasbar: I love this place since the big blogameetup! I hope Soetmin will organise a new one this year!
I hope you like the picture, the pattern, the fabric as much as I do. I feel a lot more confident with being a ‘model’ when the quality is amazing. Bjorn did an great job, don’t you think? Love to hear from you!
