London Sew Social Giveaway, and a new pattern crush!

4:44 PM


Creating your own personal style is an art. For me, it’s mostly a struggle. I feel drawn by a variety of colors, prints and textures. Sometimes it’s hard for me to visualize the finished garment with a specific fabric and pattern. I purchased fabrics for a while not thinking about what to do with them beforehand. Most of those fabrics are still in my stash waiting for the right project. Maybe they will never find one! Now I know more what’s suitable for me, I buy fabrics for specific projects, and I’ve learnt to buy better, even if I still love to be surprised by new prints and textures.

This is the case! This is a Julia Cardigan by Mouse House Creations (downloaded on UpCraft Club) in a surprisingly super soft and warm hacci sweater from Girl Charlee Uk


Both fabric and pattern were part of our London SewSocial sponsors’ package.

The Julia cardigan is definitely my new pattern crush. I could sew it completely with my serger in an hour (choosing the no-hem version!), and it’s so versatile. I love to wear it with jeans and a tee. I’m planning already to sew another one in plain knit with ¾ sleeves. 


I didn’t know what hacci sweater felt like. I choose it blindly, hoping to get something warm and soft to use in autumn. Let me say it loud: it is! Hacci sweater is a sort of knit with an open, loopy texture. It’s lightweight but slightly wooly and very warm (I probably deserve a prize for wearing it in my garden at 30°C to take the pictures). You can forget to iron it: just pull it out of your washing machine and wear it (well, wait for it to dry out). The print caught my eyes immediately, even if it’s something that goes out of my comfort zone. It reminds me of African prints and Missoni. I love it. It’s still available on Girl Charlee UK and I totally recommend it!


If you’re feeling lucky, you can try to win two meters of it (or any Girl Charlee UK fabric) together with a bunch of amazing goodies from our Sew Social sponsors.
