Holiday Debut Blog Tour

Scroll down for english, please!


Já está tudo em modo de festa? Ah pois é, Dezembro cheira a glamour e aconchego. E eu tenho o prazer enorme de participar neste tour, com tanta gente talentosa, e criações tão magnificas, perfeitas para estes dias festivos. Este tour, apresenta 3 moldes, de 3 designers que celebram assim, o fim do seu primeiro ano como designers. Os moldes são o Fishtal Kimono (Chalk & Notch), o Abby Footed Tights (The Wolf and the Tree) e o Blue Ridge Dress (Hello Holly Patterns), e eu, hoje, apresento-vos as minhas versões dos dois primeiros. 

Are you all into festive mood? Oh yes, December smells like glamour and cosiness. And I have the great pleasure of being part of this tour today, with a lotof talented people, and gorgeous crestions, perfect for the holidays. This tour, presents 3 patterns, from 3 designers that are now celebrating the end of a year as new designers. The patterns are the Fishtal Kimono (Chalk & Notch), Abby Footed Tights (The Wolf and the Tree) and Blue Ridge Dress (Hello Holly Patterns), and I have picked the two first ones to show you my versions today. 


Ambas as peças me deram imenso gozo, e foram super rápidas de fazer. Comecemos então por onde eu comecei também, que foi por escolher o tecido para as meias. A partir dai tive que escolher o tecido para o kimono, queria algo que fosse digno das festas, mas que ficasse bem com as meias e que desse também para conjugar com outros looks no dia a dia. E depois de analisar bem as possibilidades de todos os meus tecidos, acabei por escolher o mesmo veludo preto que usei para fazer os Bubble Shorts, o molde da Marta (Do Guincho), e que infelizmente já não servem à G. Infelizmente também preto e veludo não são propriamente a coisa mais fácil de se fotografar, e os detalhes nas costas do mesmo, ficam impossíveis de serem vistos nas minhas fotos, e é por isso que não há nenhuma sequer. Ó sim, e ela tem um buraco mesmo no meio da blusa porque caiu mesmo antes das fotos e rasgou-a, para grande tristeza minha, já que é uma das minhas preferidas. 

Both pieces were amazingle fun to make, and quick. Let's start from where I started too. which was the fabric for the footed tights. From there I had to pick the fabric for the Fishtail Kimono. I wanted something suitable for the holidays but alsowearable with daily looks. And after going throgh all the fabrics available on my stash, I picked the same velvet fabric I used for the Bubble Shorts by Marta (Do Guincho), and sadly don't fit G. anymore. Sadly as well, velvet and black aren't really the easiest thing to shoot, and the back details are nearly impossible to see in my photos (and that's why I am not posting a back view of this). Oh yes, she does have a hole in her sweater because she fell right before we started photographing, and it ripped, I was so deeply sad, because this is one of my faves. 


O kimono vem com opção de ajustar a altura das mangas e do corpo. As costas são compostas por duas peças, sendo que a parte de baixo é franzida no centro criando um detalhe interessante e feminino. E os tamanhos vão do XXS (18-24M) ao XXL (12 anos). Embora as medidas da G. a enquadrassem no S, eu fiz o XS e ainda bem, porque ainda assim, é bastante largo. 

The kimono comes with lenght and sleeve lenght adjustment cut lines. The back are built out of two pieces, and the lower one gathers in the center, creating an interesting and feminine detail. Size range starts at XXS (18-24M) to XXL (12 years). Although G.'s measurements would fit her into a S, I chose to make the XS and I am glad I did since there is a lot os ease in this pattern. 


O nosso look pode não parecer muito festivo, bem sei, mas não temos o habito de nos vestirmos formalmente nestas ocasiões passadas em família, claro que ainda espero fazer um vestido para ela, mas nada demasiado glamoroso. Mas continuando, e passando então às meias. Foram uma surpresa agradável. O molde traz na realidade dois moldes, um indicado para tecidos com elasticidade em dois sentidos, e outro para tecidos com elasticidade nos 4 sentidos. O meu, foi o segundo. A cintura também oferece dois acabamentos: cintura com dobra (tipo yoga) e cintura com elástico. Neste caso não segui as instruções e apliquei o elástico da mesma forma que faço sempre. São 17 tamanhos disponíveis, dos 0-14, e sim, pergunto-me se me servirão a mim também?! 

Our look isn't as festive as you'd imagine, I know, but we don't usually fancy up much for those family celebrations, of course I am still planning on making her a cute dress, but nothing too glamorous. Anyway, let's move to the footed tights. Those were a good surprise. The patterns comes actaully with two patterns, one for two ways stretch fabrics and another one for 4 ways stretch fabrics. I used the last one. The waistband has two ways too, one is a yoga waistband and the other one is an elastic waist. I went with the second option again, but I didn't follow the instructions tofinish it, instead I did it as I always do. There are 17 sizes in this pattern, from 0 to 14 years and yes, I am wondering if they fit me too?!



Alguém reparou nos outras peças feitas à mão desta publicação? São outras 3: A boina feita pela minha mãe (eu tenho um igual), a macaca, a amiga inseparável dela desde os 17 meses - aqui recusou-se mesmo a largar a macaca, já que tinha caído momentos antes - e também os calções (Morocco Shorts - Petit a Peit and Family) que fiz para o Top Stitchers em Maio. 

Did anyone spot the other handmades in this post? There are 3 of them: the beret my mom made (I have got a similar one too), the sock monkey, her best friend since she was 17 months old - she really refused to part from it in here, since she fell right before - and also the Morocco Shorts (Petit a Peit and Family) That I made for my Top Stitchers entry in May.
