Gingham & Stripes

Soon we gonna start talking about Spring / Summer 2017 Trends around here ;) ! And you gonna see that this season is again poor in prints ;-(( !! 

BUT there are 2 MUST HAVES, Gingham and Stripes, and you need them even more on a Shirt ;)

So today I'm happy to share with you an inspiration post about the Gingham and Stripes Poly Cotton we just put online !

* Gingham on the SS 2017 Runways :

Fashion Show pictures from : Altuzarra - J.Crew - House of Holand - Antonio Marras - Dolce & Gabbana - from left to right

 * Gingham inspirations and some pattern proposals :

 - clic on the pictures to see them full size -
 1 - To Have a Shirt Dress with dropped shoulders like here I would suggest to mix the 2 following patterns : the Melilot from Deer & Doe and Hermes from I am Pattern,
2 - Jumpy from Ready to Sew woul look stuning in Gingham isn't it ? I would just suggest to wait until we get the heavier weight ;) 
3 - What about a pattern hack of Aime comme Mine de rien fom Aime comme Marie ? 
4 - do you like the mix Gingham, Flounces ? have a look at the Sissy pattern from Style Arc  ?
5 - for us French people Red/White Gingham belongs on tablecloth and not on shirts, but if Inès is wearing it, we all can right ? for this basic one I would suggest the Adeline pattern from Coralie Bijasson,but your favorite one, will for sure do the job ;).
3 - For this one you would need to hack the Lexi pattern from Named by "just" dropping the shoulder a little more ... any better suggestion ?  

 1 - Eole from Dessine moi un Patron, would be great no ? adding the flounces will be a taste matter ;) ;),
2 - mixing Marthe and Vanessa from République du Chiffon just sleeveless ? I like that Idea I took from Bee Made's blog ;) ;)

 * Stripes on the SS 2017 runways :

* Stripes Inspirations and some pattern suggestions :

1 - What if to realize this beauty we mix Hermes from I am Pattern and Suzon from République du Chiffon ?? I don't know what about you, but I LOVE this Idea ...!!!
2 - the shirt on the modele is I think simply an oversized Men's Shirt crossed inside the trouser ... not really comfy to wear no ? 
This pictures calls a stripped version of Jane from Ready to Sew ;)
3 - Aime comme Magellan from Aime comme Marie would be a great base for this one ... a larger ruffle with a macramé tape and long sleeves with a cuff and done it is ;) 
4 - A Pair & A Spare, already proposed a FREE dropped shoulder tutorial in 2015 ... it would be a nice 2017 version in stripped cotton with ruffles at sleeve end and bottom ;) 

As I told you at the begging of the post, Spring / Summer 2017 is THE Shirt, Blouse, Woven Top Season !

- would you be interested to know the difference between this 3 Items ?
* a Shirt does have a button ledge so for sure buttons, if not it become a blouse,
* a Blouse is necessarily in woven, if the style is in knit it becomes a t-shirt or a top ;)
* the term Top, en globes all what we wear at the top of our body, woven and jersey mixed (expected jackets and coats etc ...)
I agree this are not capital information's and most of you may know ;) but with the amount of different words the textile industry carries it's easier if we all speak the same language ;) ;).

So here a few more nice Top patterns adapted for the Poly Cotton Gingham and Stripes fabric !
Ruffles, Strings, Belted effects, Flared Sleeves, Gathered necks, Oversized Shapes but also and in particular basics are super IN this season and are gonna be everywhere, so here are a looots of patterns  to be Fashion in DIY ;) ;) ! 

That's it for the moment ;) 
If there's nothing you like, I don't know what I could do more ;) ;) !

I'm really anxious to see your beautiful makes, so do not hesitate to share them with us under the #thesweetmercerie ;)

I wish you a great weekend, I'll see you soon ;)
Stay safe,

Yvonne - The Sweet Mercerie

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 ???
