Puperita Patterns

Thursday, April 14, 2016

I was invited to join a small group of bloggers to showcase the patterns from Puperita.  If you check out this shop, you'll find a ton of very sweet, very well designed patterns for your kids.  There are patterns for the really little ones, and some for the bigger kids (up to size 10).  She's got boy patterns, girl patterns, and accessories.

I first found these patterns on Etsy, then joined the Facebook group.  Lots of inspiration there!  The pattern designer seems to be always online to answer questions and deal with any possible issues.  Seriously amazing customer service!

Without further ado, here's the outfit that I put together:

A very Pinterest-y photo, eh?!

Of course, I had to do modeled shots as well.....

I'm really trying hard lately to think about what Julia likes to wear.  We got her these gold Saltwater sandals - right up her alley.  So, I used some Wright's gold metallic bias tape to really bring this outfit together.  There are two gold buttons on the back as well - found in my stash, which is always a plus.  The top is lawn from my shop.  It's from Moda, and is very nice.  Kind of Liberty-esque without the price tag.  Still, Julia's favorite fabric is double gauze, but she does like this top very much.  It's light and airy - won't make her hot which is something she hates.  The shorts are made from some Japanese canvas.  It's actually different on each side which is very cool.  What will be cool is if I ever get it listed in the shop, because it came on a huge roll and I actually have no place big enough to cut it properly!

The top pattern is the Liberty Style Blouse.  It went together very nicely.  This is a size 5 with 6 length.  I think it could use more length - Julia suggested adding a "frizzle" - aka ruffle!  Not a bad idea.  The shorts are actually a boy's shorts pattern - the Funny Boy Shorts.  I made a size 4 in these and lopped off about an inch from the top of the shorts before adding the waistband.  I like the fit on these and am going to make another using knit for the main part and woven for the waist and hem.

Oh, and did I mention that her patterns are seriously well priced?  Kind of the icing on the cake, eh?!
