Bonjour a tous!

I was contacted by  Katia Fabrics to work with their fabrics for a Christmas/seasonal challenge 

Katia Fabrics are based is Barcelona, Spain and have beautiful fabrics, yarns and sewing patterns and trade in 6 different languages. French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch,  and of course English.

The fabric, the pattern

I picked their prehistoric landscape sweat fabric and toughen it up by making a hoodie.  I choose to make the  Stella hoodie by Tilly and the buttons Stretch book.

I take fabric choices very seriously from a behaviour point of view, of course, as well as an overall look idea and  cannot praise that sweat fabric  enough. 

Composition: is 95% Cotton – 5% Elastane. It is described as a “Sweat fabric with a warm and soft plush interior. Ideal for sweatshirts and warm garments. So, SO satisfying to work with. It rolls a little, like most jersey, I pre-washed it because I really wanted to feel safe and not ruined it but nothing changed.

The liniing of the hoodie is from Saheed Fabrics in Walthamstow London. 

The cord was a happy find.. I was looking for blue but this dip dyed combination was perfect. 


The colours of the print are of a playful palette, lively, exuberant and an invitation to play. It bring a smile and is recognisable by both kids and grown ups who are young at heart.  It is fun print. 

  • the dominant colour is off white or even beige as a background
  • the subordinates are yellow and mustard
  • the accents are greens and blues

For the accessories i picked something for each one of the colour print

Coral: Nail polish is from HEMA

Lime green: Ring is from Pylones, my new favorite thing in the world., along with my hoodie 🙂   

Yellow and brown: Boots are from TJ-Maxx and  Handbag by Marks and Spencer which are the two grown up elements.
