It's Begging to Look a lot like Christmas !!

In exactly 1 month it's Christmas Eve (But where did this year go ??? ....) so it's about time to start thinking about our outfit, right ?

We are happy to introduce to you today the fabrics we specialy secleted for this occasion ! And as you may know, if it's not the first time you have a look here, I always like to propose you some inspiration and some matching Pattern / Fabric ideas .

What are this year trends ?

* colour wise, the winning duo of the season is without any doubt Black / Gold , but let's not forget about pinks, greens, a little red and midnight blue ...
* what about fabrics, nothing happens this season without velvet, it's as simple as this ;) !! 
but if you like sequins, metalic fabrics and satin, there will be something for you as well ... added of few touches of Plumetis, Lace and Leather !!

Let's have a look ;) ! 

I'll start with the perfect party outfit : a Dress

I selected 6 patterns who would work quit well with our fabric collection :

* The new Dessine Moi un Patron pattern Bonnie, that I would do in 2 diffenrent fabrics and that for a good reason ;) ... I would attached the cape only with a few points to the dress, in order to re-cut a more wearable version in Spring ;) 
- the dress could be in Black Porto crepe,
- and the cape in multico pleated Tull or in Golden Pleated Satin,

* The Seda Dress from Pauline Aline version B, here as well with the body in Black Porto crepe and the yoke in Black Plumetis or Black / Gold Lace ;)

* Let's speak about the fabric of the season ;) Velvet ! And this new released pattern from Pauline Alice, the Aldaia Dress version C is perfect for that !
It could be in plain Midnight Blue, Mustard or Black Velvet, or in Black / Gold printed Velvet.

* my next proposal is a classic for the festive season, the LBD and is 100% reusable all year long !! I would suggest the new Schnittchen pattern Jeannie, I just love this shape, maybe that's gonna be my Christmas Eve outfit  ... ;) 
- it could be done in Black Stretch Twill or in Knit Velvet (and if that's your choice, you can skip the zipper, that earns some time, what's not bad ;)...)

* the 3 next shapes are maybe little more "Trendy" and maybe more for New-Year's Eve than Christmas ;)
Let's Start with a Slip Dress, the Lane shape from Named in Cupper foil Jersey

* a 2snd slip dress is based on the free pattern from Pauline Alice, the Bailén Dress, in Pink pleated Satin with silver foil .... and that's what it would look like :
if you like this version, let me give you another argument ;) it will be perfect for the up-comming summer weared with a simple white tee and some sneackers ;)

* You may have seen this "Ballerina" trend that started this Fall, that could be something for Christmas as well ;) ! With the Formidable pattern from Louis Antoinette, with the skirt in pleated tull and the top in Black Strasbourg crepe or even in Black Scuba knit ;)
Or if dresses are not your cup of tea, it could be a Tull skirt and a plain Black Top (yes, right, I have a solution for nearly everything ;) ..) 
  That's it for the Dresses, I think there should be something for every taste and style ;) !

- Another must have of the season that can be nice for the festive season : the pleasted skirt ;)
* I used the Lumme pattern from Named (on sale at the moment ;) ...) in the Pink with silver foil pleated satin ! With that better stay soft and neutral when it comes to the top ;) so I would suggest to pair it with the Tulli Body from Named in Grey/Silver Jersey for a more casual silhouette !
Or with the Bailèn Top from Pauline Alice in Sand crepe for a more feminine look ;).
You add some accessories and it's done ! And you have an outfit you can wear when ever you feel like !

* For the second look with a skirt I went for another must have of the season, the Rib Top !! Kommatia Patterns created a special pattern for this fabric ;) I would see that really well with a Bordeaux leatherette pencil skirt !

For sure some trousers could not miss in my selection ;) 

Here as well I selected 2 casual styles but adapted for the situation, don't worry ;) and a more dressed up silhouette but really modern (why m'I using this word, I hate ?? ;)..)

* First up, the Tyyni trouser from Named in a stretch twil with foil (really confortable, if you had a little to much dessert, if you know what I mean ;)...),
paired with a Lace Selja shirt or a pleated Tull top : 

* My second proposal is based on the Sorell trouser from Pauline Alice (on sale at the moment right here .... ) in a Pinhead Gabardine to wear with the Eva blouse from Coralie Bijasson in crepe and Lace ! I have to say, me with my more Casual look, loove that silhouette ;) :
 * And finaly my 3rd and last proposal is also based on a season's must have, the Jogger ! And nothing less than a Velvet Jogger ;) I stayed on the save side using the Black Velvet and not the Mustard one like on the inspiration picture (but why not ...). As velvet is a little shinny I would pair it with a soft Black Crepe Bailén Top.

And to close this waayy to long post (thanks for those who arrived until here ;) we for sure need a littel cardigan to match all this outfits right ?? 
I would go for an easy to combine and recycle Black body feeted one, and the best shape for that, is for me the Lola cardigan from Schnittchen !   
   Hope this silhouettes inspired you a little and gave you some envy to plan a special outfit for the holidays ;)

Have a great evening and a cool warm weekend,

Un petit Cadeau se glisse dans vos colis cette semaine !!!

De temps en temps ils nous arrivent de nous tromper quand nous achetons nos tissus .... et ce fut le cas pour ce Jersey :-((
Rdv tardif à l'usine, on trouve le motif sympa, agréable au toucher, 130 gr/² c'est bien pour l'été - allez hop (coucou les origines Alsaciennes), emballé c'est peser 1 rouleau svp Mr Francisco B. .... sauf qu'a la livraison du rouleau .....
C'est un Jersey avec un imprimé placé qui n'est pas vendable pour nous au mètre car son utilisation est forcément plus limité que pour un imprimé "allover" sur toute la laize ! 
Mais ce Jersey 100% coton - 130 gr/m² est tout à fait transformable à condition de choisir le bon patron ! 

Il était donc impensable pour nous de laisser dormir ce rouleau de 40 métres de Jersey au dépot :-))C'est pour cela que dans toutes les commandes reçu du 13.06 au 15.06, 4 coupons* y seront glisser en cadeau ! 

Mais quoi faire avec ces coupons ???
