Dressing for a Celebration

Hi KCW-lovers,

I am Lindsy from Stannel.  I am very excited to be a contributor for this summer edition.  I even performed a happy dance when I found out!  That brings us right to the theme of this edition: ‘Celebration’.  I hope to inspire you with my thoughts on this year’s theme!

When I was brainstorming on what ‘celebration’ could mean to me, I immediatly thought of the traditional big steps in life:  birth, wedding, birthday,…  I noticed that tulle fabric, lace and feathers are trending for girls this year. Katrien shows us a marvellous tulle dress.  The ideal dress for an elegant and beautiful bridesmaid/flowergirl.

I absolutely love the Bohemian style.  The combination of the white lace and the flower hairbands is just so adorable, as Griet shows us with her twins.

The ‘Once upon a party’ pattern from An is the perfect formal partydress pattern.  And look, even black is beautiful!

And let us not forget the boys!! Boys can look both tough and fancy.  Sarah from Khadetjes combines a cool Star Wars print with a chique blazer. Boys can wear a gillet or a blazer like grown ups.  The Cisse and Theo pattern of Zonen09 combine with that perfectly.  Everything is possible!  When Julie asked me what style I like when dressing my kids, I had to admit that I don’t have one!  Children can get away with a combination of styles, prints and colors and they look awsome anyway.

Celebration also means laughter and dance to me.  Let’s sew clothes that make our kids happy.  A beautiful Moiana coat (a new pattern from An from Straightgrain) in bright colors makes everyone happy, don’t you agree?  Summery colors, playful fabrics and garments where your children can play in!  My girl never walks.  She is always hopping around.  She just loves a twirling circle skirt, frulles on a dress flattering in the wind… Also boys can show their happiness in their clothes.  Marleen made a cute salopet for boys to play in.

This is my view on the theme for now.  I hope that I motivated you to start sewing for the next KCW.  Next time I am throwing in some water, glitter and glamour.

See you next time!
