Anneli Tee and Dress + Ninni Culottes

A few weeks ago I had the chance to choose from Nosh Organics spring collection. The moment I saw these prints I knew exactly what patterns to use!

Named Clothing had just released it’s new collection SS17 – Playground, and I had my eye on two patterns, the Ninni Elastic Waist Culottes¬†and the Anneli Double Front Tee and Dress.

It was a match made in heaven! ūüėÄ

For the Anneli Tee I used this beautiful organic cotton jersey in grey and for the Ninni culottes this striped loopback sweatshirting. Both fabrics worked so well for these particular patterns. I was really happy with the outcome!

I’ve been wanting to make a pair of culottes for such a long time, but didn’t really feel like doing a big sewing project. So these were just perfect! Quick and easy… ¬†Plus, pockets!

The silhouette is quite full and that’s what I love about it, but if you prefer a slimmer fit¬†I would suggest making a size smaller.

I just love the double front feature on the tee. It makes it quite special and not just another t-shirt pattern. And at the same time it has a very classic style. The cotton jersey is fantastic to sew with. It’s a medium weight knit, very similar to a double knit, which makes it perfect for¬†beginners.

The Anneli pattern also offers a dress option. I love maxi dresses for summer and this print just made it perfect! I didn’t add the belt loops, because, silly me, thought I could wear the dress loose. Well, I was proved veeeery wrong on a windy day!

I still prefer to wear it loose and after seeing a¬†photo of¬†Mie¬†wearing the dress with a layer underneath… Genius!! Thank you Mie! This makes me much happier!

You can find all these wonderful prints here. And a new collection of fabrics here. The print I used for my dress is only available in these three colors, which are just as beautiful!


The fabric I used in this post was given to me by NOSH, but all the opinions are my own.

    You look so gorgeous in that dress (perfect print for it!) and I’m always happy to inspire ūüėČ Clothes with potential exposure stresses me out, lol. Thanks for the shoutout!
