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!
It was a match made in heaven! 😀
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!
The fabric I used in this post was given to me by NOSH, but all the opinions are my own.
