Have you seen STYLO yet? I'm so blown away by it! STYLO is the first eMagazine that focuses on fashion forward children's designs you can diy. So many amazing designers have patterns featured in the first issue and it also has interviews from some phenomenal people (hello Laura of JCrew/CrewCuts) plus some tutorials.
Like this one...
Do you recognize this handsome little man? Elliott loves the shirt I 'dandied' up for him. I wrote this tutorial for the eMag on how to add a welt pocket to any shirt and made the inside of the pocket in a contrast color that can be pulled out for a pocket square look. Usually Elliott wears his shirts with the pocket tucked in and holds all kinds of treasures inside it. He loved the shirt so much I actually made a second one for him from a red shirt and the pocket square is made of Angry Birds fabric. Ha!
You can get the full tutorial about half way through the issue.
Near the end of STYLO is a picture of my 4 year old in the lace dress I made as part of my Downton Sewing Series last week. (To see more of the series click here to see my flapper style look, here to see a round-up of Downton Abbey fashion from the show, here to see a round-up of patterns I put together that are 1920s inspired, here to see the cloche hat I made and 1920s hairstyles, here for a free owl puppet pattern (a toy from the 1920s era), and here, here, here, here, and here to see all the guest posts from the series.
Isa is one thrilled little girl about being in a magazine!
I am just in awe of the talented Celina (from Petit a Petit and Family) and Jess (from The Sewing Rabbit) on the incredible project they have launched with STYLO. I really believe it will become THE place to go to be inspired by modern sewists and pattern makers. Please check it out and sign up for their newsletter so you don't miss an issue.
