After wearing all-Canadian designs last week, this week was about European designers! As you helped remind me, there are TONS of pattern options from Europe, including Burda, Lekala, and Knipmode as well as the more-standard indies like BHL, Pauline Alice, Named, and so on.
Turns out I just have a few designers from Europe in my closet, so this week included lots of TNT pattern repeats. (It didn’t help that it got really cold this week…)
- 1 cropped Maria of Denmark Kimono tee (a fabulous free pattern!)
- 1 MoD Olivia Oversized tee
- 1 MoDenmark Day-to-Night cowl tank
- 1 Deer and Doe Plantain shirt (another free pattern)
- 3 Kitschy Koo Comino Cap dresses
- I also wore another Plantain and MoD yoga pants as pjs on the 17th when I was feeling sick, but no pics for those.
That’s 4 Maria of Denmark patterns – all of which I love and have made repeatedly! I just saw on Instagram today that she is releasing a book in the fall, so I’ll be waiting eagerly to see what it’s like. I hope it has patterns! (I’ve been thinking lately how there are no pattern books that appeal to me, but I wish there were!)
My unofficial goal has been to sew a new-to-me pattern from each region during the week… I’m afraid that after all your great suggestions, all I managed was a pair of Kitschy Koo Barrie Boy-Cut Briefs! (Does a BHL Anna sewn a few days too late count?) A rather ugly pair at that.. orange ity scraps with black stitching. Happy halloween! I’m still deciding if I like the fit.
This week I’m on to patterns from Australia and New Zealand. Lots to choose from! Oh, and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I finished my sewing dare! I’ll blog about it later this week. Only 11 more days of MMM, then we are into June!
