Petit Oiseau Blog Tour

Scroll down for english. 


Não sei se por ai fazem o mesmo, mas por vezes, quando vejo alguém (adulto ou criança) com alguma peça de roupa vestida, que contenha algum detalhe interessante, ou algo diferente que sobressaia, saco logo do meu caderno de apontamentos e rabisco aquilo que vi para mais tarde tentar reproduzir à minha maneira. Há uns meses, estava eu numa gasolineira, quando vi uma rapariga com uma camisola que me pareceu interessante. O pormenor da mesma, era uma faixa em tecido contrastante que começava num ombro e atravessava até ao braço oposto, na frente. Rabisquei-a claro, mas nunca mais me lembrei disso até que a Mélanie (Filles à Maman) lançou esta tour para o seu molde Petit Oiseau, que é basicamente aquilo que eu tinha visto. Na verdade, o molde vem com mais outra opção, um folho costurado entre as duas peças da frente (como podem ver na imagem oficial da tour abaixo), mas eu escolhi a opção mais simples, porque folhos não fazem muito o meu género; não descarto todos, mas com toda a sinceridade, este seria demasiado para mim. É uma questão de gosto pessoal, lá está. Gosto muito mais da versão sem ele, por ser mais o meu estilo. E optei pela manga comprida, também traz opção para a curta, mas aqui, agora, faz frio para mangas curtas. 

I don't know about you guys, but sometimes, when I see someone (adult or child) wearing somthing that catches my eyes, with an interesting details, something that stands out and different, I quickly pick my notebook and scatch it so I can try to reproduce it my way later. A few months ago, while at a gas stop, I saw this lady wearing a pretty interesting shirt. The detail, was a sort of a band, starting at one shoulder and ending on the oposite sleeve, on the front. I sketched it of course, but I didn't think of it anymore, until Mélanie (Filles à Maman) came up with this tour for her Petit Oiseau pattern, which is basically what I had seen. The pattern actually comes with another version, a ruffle that is sewn between top and bottom pieces of the front, but honestly here, I am not a ruffles person, I don't dislike them all, but this here would be just too much for me. It's a matter of personal taste, of course. The plain version is much more my style and therefore, I like it much better. I also picked the long sleeve version, but there is a short one too, it's just too cold to do that one right now, in here. 


Depois do último teste que fiz, que foi uma coisa detalhada e mais morosa (mostro assim que possa), e que foi a última coisa que fiz antes de costurar esta camisola para a G. soube-me muito bem criar uma peça tão simples, em que começar e terminar numa só tarde é bem possível. O molde é constituído por 4 peças apenas (frente topo, frente, trás e colarinho opcional), e o que mais trabalho dá é mesmo imprimir e colar o molde, e ainda assim, temos a vida facilitada porque é um daqueles moldes em que não precisamos de cortar/dobrar margens algumas, e sim, apenas colar. Precisamos de uma mesa com espaço (ou o belo do chão, porque não?!), para cortar as peças pois corpo e mangas fazem parte de uma só peça. 

After the latest pattern test I did, which is something more details and slow sewing (I'll share as soon as I am allowed to), which was the last one I did before this shirt for G, it felt so good to make something this simple, quite easy to start and finish in an afternoon. The pattern is made out of 4 different pieces (top front, front, back and neckband, which is optional), and assembling the pattern is the hardest part, even though, we got it quite easy because there's no pattern trimming here, we just have to tape them together. You do need a good cutting table (or, why not, the good old floor) to cut it because body and sleeves are one piece only


No meu caso, até foram 5 peças, porque escolhi um tecido muito fino, meio transparente para o topo (com os corações), por isso, optei por usar o mesmo tecido do resto da camisola como forro. Ainda assim, costurar esta peça foi num piscar de olhos. Aconselho vivamente a toda a gente que goste do estilo, para as iniciantes, não tem nada de complicado, poucos costuras a fazer, tem algumas curvas mas nada de especial ou demasiado acentuado. Para as mais experientes, é uma óptima peça para quando precisamos de fazer algo que consigamos começar e acabar de uma assentada só. 

In my case, I had to cut 5 pieces, because my top fabric (the one with the hearts) was too thin, a bit see through, so using the main shirt fabric to line it was my option. Still, sewing this piece was in a blink. I recommend it to everyone that likes the style, for begginers, it really doesn't have that many seams, there are a few curves but they are smooth and easy going. For the experts, this is a great piece to start and finish in an mmmbop (ahahaha any Hanson fans out there?). 


As mangas asa de morcego (ou dolman) dão o toque final. Adoro. Eu fiz o tamanho 4 anos para a G. Sinceramente nem a medi, sabia que caberia num 3 ou num 4, mas como ela já tem um número considerável de camisolas para este Inverno, preferi fazer o 4 e se estivesse grande, melhor, durava mais tempo. De corpo penso que até ficou boa, mas as mangas ficaram pouco mais de 2 cm compridas demais, nada que uma dobra não resolva. Quanto a tecidos, usei uma malha de algodão de uma fronha XXL, penso que era até de colchão, mas estava novinha em folha, tecido extra!!! O tecido dos corações, comprei há uns bons meses atrás online, é bastante fino e super suave ao toque. E mais uma vez, penso que aqui a peça ganhou pela simplicidade, fácil de conjugar com várias outras peças já existentes do guarda roupa da princesa. 

The dolman sleeves are the final touch. Love them. I made size 4 for G. Honestly I didn't even measure her, I knew for sure, she'd easily fit either a 3 or a 4, but I went with the latest, since she has her share of shirts for this winter, I rather make the largest number and let it grow with her. It fits perfectly in the bodice, only the sleeves were about 1" too long, but we can always fold it over for now. As for fabric, I used a XXL pillow cover, actually I think it was a small matress cover, it is a very soft cotton knit that I refashioned, so much extra fabric!!! The hearts fabric is very thin and super softto the touch, I bought it online a few months ago. Again, I believe this piece has won for the simplicity, it is easy to put together using other existing pieces from my princess wardrobe.

    1. Thanks. My initial plans were to use a brown fabric for main, but when I opened it to cut, the fold was stained. I was so sad then, but I guess it worked better with the pearl.

    1. Obrigado Rita. Ainda não tive oportunidade de ir ler o teu post mas já vi. Cm disse no meu post, acho este folho aqui demasiado para o meu gosto, dá-me impressão, parece que está sempre ali qualquer coisa pelo meio. LOL, mas este molde, na versão que eu o fiz, será usado mais vezes por aqui. Acho que o mal das mangas é geral.

  6. Beautiful! Love the color combination my darling... :-)

My Weekly Refashion Share #1 |FREE pattern & tutorial|

If you're looking for the giveaway, please click HERE

A couple of months ago I made these two onesies for my baby boy. You can read more about them by clicking each photo.
They were both refashions from t-shirts, and ever since I made them, I've been wanting to share a tutorial. But not only a tutorial, you can have a FREE pattern, the one I drafted for my own. If you are expecting a baby, or have someone close to you that is, this would make a great gift, so go ahead, grab the PATTERN, print it and let's start sewing. 
Note before you start: - Some pattern pieces need to be taped together. In order to do that, you have to match the number on the pattern and letters A to B. Example: piece 4A to piece 4B. Tape them matching the symbols on both pieces.  - I didn't realise it, but I've added two star pattern pieces, but just one is enough, of course. It is an optional add.  - All seams are 1/4" except for sleeves hem, which are 1" long.  - Just one more t…

Pocket Sling Tutorial

Back in September, I guest posted for Tasha over I Seam Stressed, while she was adjusting to her new life as mom of two. For that post, I've put up a tutorial on how to do your own pocket sling. Today's, I am bringing it home, since all we think about now is Christmas and all the handmade presents we have to make, i think this should be a good idea to gift a new mom or a pregnant relative/friend in your life. Enjoy!

Since my appearence here is due to Tasha's baby boy's birth, I thought I'd come up with something every mom should have. Especially when they are still newborns (even though I used mine until my little one was around one year old, then she just wanted to walk everywhere and we slowly left it aside). I am talking about a baby pocket sling, of course.


I prefer pocket slings over ring slings by far, it gives me a better sense of security, but that might be just me. And today I will share a tutorial on how to do your own.


So, the first thing you have to do is…

The Dreaming of Spring Blazer |FREE PDF Pattern| day 1 of the Sew along

EDITED: You have until the 30th of November to link your blazer to the flickr group to have a chance to win a free pattern for the Bubble Shorts pattern by DoGuincho. Read more about it here.

If you are new to my blog, you might not know that I have promised to share a pattern for the blazer I made my daughter when I competed in the Sew Off. If you were following already back then, well, I am sorry I kept you waiting for so long. If you haven't yet, you might want to check out the blazers my friend testers made. You'll love them, I'm so sure!

It was about time to give something back, since I've been getting so much from this wonderful sewing community, and keep up with my word. After all, I've always heard it's better late than never, right? And it's FREE so: please don't complain.

This pattern will fit a 18 months to 2 year old, but I believe it has space to grow - especially on the sleeves department. I guess it really depends on your child. Mine was…
