The Couture Journal in pre-sale!

Jun 1, 2017 12:00:00 AM

With Nadine, we worked on its realization for months.

We had the idea of this Sewing Planner thanks to a meeting with a printer, on a completely different subject (we will tell you more soon).

But here it was, we had to face the obviousness, the production had to be large otherwise the notebook was going to cost expensive, too expensive for our eyes.

That's why we started the pre-sale on Ulule!


Thanks to your support, we have had a better idea of your request and above all, we have been able to launch the production of the booklet which requires a very heavy investment for a small company like ours.

For the record, that planner gave us a hard time. After finalizing all the files (drawings, layout made by us), we wanted the ideal paper to draw on.

Because without paper, there's no notebook. After three attempts by the printer, we finally found the paper that gave the perfect rendering for coloring crayons, replaying with fine felt on watermark lines or writing in the boxes of fabric tables, patterns, simply !

After the success of the pre-sale (project financed 184% by you), the sale of the Couture Journal continues on our website...

Bird cloth Sirli baby romper pattern!

Mar 13, 2017 12:00:00 AM

The baby romper sewing pattern is finding more and more followers! Thank you very much. Notably to Caroline from une Souris à Paris for all her versions, in particular that of the bloomer.

It' s the occasion for us to rework the pattern so that it corresponds as well as possible to your expectations. In the coming weeks, you will find the model in a new pocket with the addition of the 24 and 36 months sizes.

Our little A also often wears his Sirli romper . That sewn birdie version looks good on him, doesn't it?

For information: The little A is 12 months old, 77 cm high, 8,5 kg. He wears the romper in size 9 months. It' s just a little tight at the waist.

For more comfort at waist level, we advise you to use a mesh elastic band . much softer than a classic ribbed elastic.

The fabric used is the beige bird cottonade, we also have the grey and the blue one .

Take some single piping or Lurex to make the outline of the romper!
