Kaftan sewing

Skopelos summer 2014

I got a few e-mails about the kids kaftan version that could be seen a lot in my last post. I know that the post was about our summer vacation in Greece, but apparently I was more interested in posting pics of my kids in theirs Indelible clothes, which is so truth-can't blame me for that :)

I took the advantage of the beautiful Greek scenery in order to get some nice pics that could inspire you more! So if you haven't tried my kaftan tutorial, you definitely have to!!! It's beginner friendly and sews very easy!! I did the kids version with the regular quilting poplin cotton, which is great for apparel sewing and the width of the fabric will work just fine for kids. The voile is even better, because of the drape and weight of the fabric, and for adults, it's a must because of the width of the fabric. For the kids version, I did the round-boat neck, instead of the V-neck, and was much easier to sew.Another interesting note-option about the tutorial: instead of making the button holes and drawstrings, you can apply one or two rows of shirring (with elastic thread)at the front and back of the kaftan. For shirring you can read some tips here.

And please, if you are making it, be sure to add your photos in my flickr group, so that I can see them :)

Indelible blog hop, part 2


indelible blog hop

It's time for the Indelible BLOG HOP part 2 or the second round up!
You can admire and read more about some amazing creations in  part 1 and introduction post HERE with the full list of participants!!!

We will start with amazing work of: 

Kathleen Kerr

She created 2 quilts with Indelible, both using Darkened Ink colorway and I am still trying to decide which one I like most...the first one that you can see is called "Delectable" and if you follow the link to her blog you will find the free pattern-tutorial for this beautiful piece of art!



The second one is created using Jaybird Quilts pattern "Park Bench". The quilting is impeccable!!!




-------------------------

Than we have fantastic "Indelible foot print" quilt top by

 Amy Friend

Amy used Subtle watermarks colorway and she was inspired by a Moroccan floor tile design to create this hexagonal pattern.




And I will finish this round up with the Indelible Doiland dress that I created for my quiltmarket booth. The dress is modeled by Lauv, fashion designer and stylist in AGF and actually while I was creating the dress (the night before departure), I totally had her in my mind as model and sort of inspiration and I wasn't wrong!!!
And I am a bit sorry that the second picture (she looks like a beautiful mermaid to me) didn't finish as a look book cover, but she was in Brazil while the look book was in the works...but at least you can see it here! :)

Thanks Lauv - you totally rock that dress!!!❤️❤️❤️
