Winter Star

Was it a general trend or was it only in Spain that Winter 2015 children's fashion has all been about  


I loved the pattern so naturally CasyCoso went for it. Also, my niece (2yo) attended a wedding as a flower girl wearing the cutest Little Charleston style dress. By Charleston, I mean a low cut waist and a pletted skirt dress. She was adorable so, despite our reservations about how flattering that shape might be on a little girl, we went for it, and this is the result!

Needless to say, that I was further encouraged to go for it after I saw that my favorite children fashion brand, NANOS, had presented a couple of models along that line. As a matter of fact, here is the AW15  model We "inspired" ourselves on,  you tell me if you find any resemblance.

The cherry on the cake was to find this awesome wool fabric, soft as a teddy bear, warm as a blanket, machine washable,  and easy to work with, from TraeTela

I loved the silver star print of the fabric. We had liked it better if we could have found a way to highlight it, instead of going for our recurrent adornment of Valencienne lace, but none of the options we contemplated, seemed to measure up to the Nano's solution.

I wish we could post some pics of our birdie#2 sporting the garment, because it is really cute, but to get her to try model for our blog is an absolute mission impossible!

Organza & Plumeti Tulle

What a dream! Last week, back at my mom's house, we visited our fetish fabric store MasTelas and we found a Cream Color Plumeti Tulle to die for, sitting next to some perfectly rose delicate organza. It took us 2secs to concoct the idea of what to make of it. 

Here is the story of our very anticipated, little babybird #3 

      Plumeti+Organza Baby Dress

Newborn Baby #3 Dress Fresh from the oven!

The idea was to make a two layer traditional (aka loooong please!) baby dress. With an organza undercoat and a tulle overlay. We toyed around with the idea of making the tulle layer an apron instead. We even launched an opinion pool in Instagram (@casycoso) but in the end, we opted for a more conservative design, mainly coz the intention was to make it in a newborn size and the apron might not show very well plus it might not have been too practical either. 

I am crazy about that tulle. The only thing I didn't like was the price (19€/m) but I had tons of ideas of things I could do with it and could not (did not want to) resist.

Unfortunately, the only things I have manage to make with the scrap left overs have been the matching  baby cap, and the tulle rose waist detail which I find cute an distinctive and my mom inappropriate...

By the way, I have to give it to my new gathering gadget, how did we do it before it got I I our lives?

Here are some shots of the process. I cannot presume to help anybody learn how to sew but, if the detail shots are interesting to someone as to how to evolve the creative process into reality, may they be welcome here!

Et voilá!
