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.
