Sleeveless vest Kids – Bodywarmer

Sleeveless vest Kids - Bodywarmer | TummieTown | Tutorial pockets #sew

I love sleeveless vests & fabrics with houses! This is the perfect combination 😉
For the outside I used the ‘house/ little farm’ organic cotton by monaluna I bought at Modes4u.com. They have a lot! of Japanese imported fabrics (like Kokka) and other cute stuff like patches, tapes and stationery. They have detailed information and pictures at fabrics. For the inside I used a very soft and thick teddy fabric.

The vest pattern is from Ottobre 1-2015 (no. 15) and I left out the sleeves. I choose this vest because the pockets are so cute! I will definitely use this pattern again.

This time I didn’t forget to take some WIP pictures! Yay! Of course you can use the work description in the Ottobre. But most of the time I search the internet for some helpful tutorials with pictures. You can also take a look at my previous posts like: sleeveless vest I or summer jacket.

Hope these pictures will help! And if you don’t need to see these WIP’s you can scroll to the bottom where you’ll find some cute pictures of Koko wearing her new vest 😉

Sleeveless vest Kids - Bodywarmer | TummieTown | Tutorial pockets #sew As I said before the pocket are so cute! and easy if you know how.
First draw the shape of the pocket on the front panel with the help of the pattern and a vanishing fabric marker ( My biggest friend! ) Then lay the inside piece of the pocket on the right side of the fabric and pin it.

Sew together the two vests. One for the inside and one for the outside. Make sure you add all the label, pockets, batches etc before you sew them together.

Take a look at my jacket post for tutorials if you need some help with this. Turn around through the armholes).

I bind the armholes with red bias tape. Take a look at one of my previous posts to see how, or visit the Colletterie for a helpfull tutorial ‘How to bind knit edges’.

Jersey Shirt & Skirt

jersey skirt &shirt | sewed by Tummie | Tummietown ENG: My winter break is over! And I’m ready for some new spring/ summer outfits! The ‘To sew’ list is getting longer and longer… there are so many cute things I want to sew. I think I need to move some ideas to next year.
I sewed a matching shirt and skirt but of course she can wear them separately 😉 I used a sweater tricot which is a bit thinner than jogging fabric. The ‘Triangles marshmallow’ sweater fabric is from Andrea Lauren. Both ordered at Noeks.nl.

For the shirt I used a pattern from the Ottobre 1-2015 and for the skirt I traced Koko’s favorite skirt. I should have took some WIP pictures of the skirt… I know…I’m not good at this 😉 I’m thinking of sewing a similar skirt for myself and when I do I hopefully don’t forget to take some pictures.

NL: Mijn winter stop is voorbij en ik heb zin om nieuwe lente/ zomer outfits te maken. Mijn ‘To sew’ lijstje word alsmaar langer en ik denk dat ik wat moet verschuiven naar volgend jaar. Deze keer een matching setje, maar ze kan het natuurlijk ook gewoon los dragen.
Ik heb sweater tricot gebruikt wat net iets dunner is dan joggingstof. De driehoekjes stof is van Andrea Lauren. Ik heb ze beide bij Noeks.nl gekocht. het shirtje komt uit de Ottobre 1-2015 en voor het rokje heb ik Koko’s lievelings rokje nagemaakt. Ik ben van het rokje helemaal vergeten WIP foto’s te maken. Maar ik ben van plan een vergelijkbaar rokje voor mijzelf te maken dus hopelijk denk ik er aan om het dan te doen en misschien wel even een patroontje online te zetten… wie weet 😉

See you soon!
