Julia sweater by Compagnie M.

Julia sweater - my new favorite sweater of all time !

I got this pattern for free after helping Marte from Compagnie M. out with the start of her paper patterns, some pattern checking and I got a great thank you :)

Let's start by stating the obvious, this is a lovely sweater, easy and comfy and depending on the fabric fancy or casual. So all and all a super versatile pattern!

I made the basic sweater with the wide neckline in a glitter sweater fabric and added a fuchsia shiny paspel on both arms.

It's an easy make, very well explained and because of the difficult fabric it took me an afternoon to make. An less fuss fabric will take less time :)

So here's another huge thank you to Marte from Compagnie M. ! 
The fabric is from Sjiekebiele in St.Michiels Brugge.

Lotta skirt by Compagnie M.

Lotta skirt - my new favorite skirt !!!

I love this skirt, I really do, it's cute, it's comfy and it looks amazing!

So here are the pics

I had a hard time finishing this skirt, cause my machine was a bit of a pain in the butt. Luckily, just yesterday I got a new machine, the Janome Skyline S5. I finished the skirt with the newbie tonight and I must say it runs great.

My skirt is made out of a lovely satin-cotton fabric by Kokka, with some silver birds on it. For the lining I just used satin and the pockets have some cute vintage clear buttons with engraved leaves.

Can't wait to wear this tomorrow!
