This is the first patterns I’ve tried from Filles a Maman. I am very impressed. The instructions and diagrams are very clear. The pattern pieces uses the layers feature for easily printing and cutting out your size. There are notches and placement guides for everything. Very pleasant pattern to work with. I love the look of the top. I got the Woman’s version during the Sewfab pattern sale promotion in December but had not sewn it due to the busy holidays and aftermath. The tour was a great excuse to sew it up and to get one made for my little.

DSC_0899I made my daughter’s using all Stenzo scraps from previous projects. I had just enough foxes for the front and back of this color blocked. It was meant to be. I added the other small pieces for accents. The Foxes were from Loiseau Fabrics, the dots from Mabel Madison.

DSC_0880For mine I also used some Stenzo from Loiseau that I have been holding back for a long time. I adore these prints.  I only had a meter of the floral and I was determined to use it on something for me. The color blocking of this pattern came to the rescue again.

Both tops sewed up very quick. I spend about two hours cutting out and sewing them. I made the sizes according to the chart. I was super happy with the fit. I did shorten the sleeves just a little on mine. It will warm up here very soon and I wanted to make sure I could wear it through the spring.

DSC_0894For my daughter’s version I added the optional little pocket. So cute! I am very in love with these. They will get a lot of wear. Stay turned to more Filles a Maman very soon. Her patterns are quickly becoming favorites of mine.
