Inespiration

Hey Inês, surprise surprise, we're celebrating your style and wonderful smile by sewing something  Inês inspired! I hope you're enjoying this crazy ride with "Inespiration"- makings popping up all over the sewing blogger community. Oh and if you're reading along and aren't Inês, I'm sure you know who I'm talking about, Inês is the lovely lady behind La Folie where she shares her gorgeous sewing  projects.


Okay, sewing something inspired by Inês. At first I just wanted to copy this fantastic hooded striped groove dress, it really is one of my favourites, but my boys weren't to keen on wearing a dress and I'm probably just a bit too old to wear an item like that.



So I decided on a different angle. We all know (and share) her love for Nosh organics fabrics, that was an easy starting point and I know she likes using wovens for knit patterns and vice versa. So I tried the same and here it is, a cappucino tunic (a Liesl + Co pattern) in Nosh's fantasy blue jersey. The hack worked like a charm, especially with this nice jersey quality.

Okay, now I'm just missing a picture with a big Inês-like smile, here it is, I tried!


Ha but that's not all, go check out what the others came up with, just follow the links and tumble down the rabbit hole!



The fabric I used in this post was given to me by Nosh Organics as part of a co-operation, all opinions are as always honest and my own.

    1. Thanks Olu! The smiling part wasn't easy. Smiling on demand for a picture usually turns out as awkward grin :)

  2. This is genius. I love that pattern in woven (I'm pretty sure Ines have actually made it, right?) but it looks really really well as a knit tee version as well. Perfect Inespired hack ;-)

    1. Ah thanks Mie! And yes, Ines made a couple of woven cappuccino tunics. I think it's even her blog where I spotted the pattern first.

  3. I hadn't realised this pattern wasn't for knits, it worked so well! I love it in this fabric. I could definitely see you rocking a stripey Groove dress too.
