Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever

Living in Northern Spain is an absolute guarantee of the fact that no matter how warm and beautiful a day is, dusk would require a jacket. So, the Liberty Peppered cotton project needs a Becky. To contribute to the hectic past weeks I voluntarily got myself into by working on several fronts at the same time, I also started knitting a very yellow Bolero Jacket. My idea is to copy this model:

Mint Plumeti Dress - copied!

It is not as easy as it seems
Why am I wearing wings? I wonder..
Reading along the notes we have been posting recently, it might look like copying a dress just from a pic is a super easy task. And it might just be so if you are skilled in the art of dress makingwhich sadly enough, is not the CasyCoso case. On the contrary,

Repeat with me…a project at a time, a project at a time
a project at a time!

I have repeatedly told myself to carry just one project at a time...but sometimes the temptation to get just a couple of fabrics is irresistible! 
Handmade Project Overload

This summer we are being the worst of sinners. When I discovered the colorful catalogue of Swiss Plumetis I had to take both the Lavander and the Mint. I could only hold back on the Coral and that is just because

Baby Boy Bubble Romper

While we work on our summer stock, we thought we might post back a bit on a recent baby romper we knitted and sewed for a very dear friend’s first born boy:

In honor of the newcomer cuteness pie, 
we refer to this model as
Pablo’s Romper

Boy Bubble Romper – Winter 2014

We knitted it with 100% baby Merino Wool, from katia. A wonderful yarn, machine washable that also offers a very soft, elegant yet contemporary color palette. The bubble bottom we cut and sewed using light dusty grey 100% cotton piqué. As always with this garment, we made it with crotch clasp closures because as a mother, I know the tragedy that an onesies without easy diaper access might involve!

Raglan Sleeve Detail
The pattern is simple but the fitting is fantastic, as always with raglan sleeves. It buttons on the back and paired with some color matching leggings, this is for sure, our fetish garment. We included in the gift parcel a baby cap, knitted in wool, for two reasons: 
- babies look the cutest in caps
- winter was coming
Baby  Cap

If you like it, we made it available through our Etsy store.

Mint Plumeti Dress

2014 Mint Parole

The hardest next thing to hold back from buying the same fabric on every color available is, to me, to decide on the pattern. It is often the CasyCoso Case, to find inspiration on the broads of reality and commercial brand’s talents. We humbly acknowledge this and pay tribute to their creativity. So, for this particular light, breeze, extremely classy fabric, we wanted something original, cute and girly yet apt for everyday wear. We didn’t want a dress that ought to sit in the closet till Sunday coz it looks too formal or bow-ish

We found this!
Nanos 2013 Spring Summer Catalogue
Once again, it is by Nanos…we just like it so much…we want to know if we can mimic it!

Here is the visual for the pattern and the progress so far, we think we got it!

Visual for the Mint Dress

The lace details are done with a very delicate yet modern pattern of Valencienne Lace, our other confessed weakness. And the silk ribbon over the shoulder just makes it as cute as it can get...in our opinion of course.
