I love sewing for Zara!
She is so enthusiastic and gets really involved in all the details.
She has been wanting a nude hooded jacket f o r e v e r.
Nude unbrushed cotton fleece, have you ever tried to find nude unbrushed fleece?
I googled my little fingers off to no avail.
Then, around Mothers Day, Spotlight had a 40% off fabric, storewide.
Trixie was poorly and wanted to feed all the time so I cruised through the whole website.
Spotlight online is a really crappy website. It is clunky and has a horrid search function.
I found this fabric , washed unbleached coral fleece with the co ordinating ribbing.
Zara loved the colour so we gave it a go.
One nude hooded jacket.
Once again, we returned to Lekala and Zara chose this unisex jacket.
Lekala patterns are custom made, to your body measurements.
Lekala instructions are pretty brief at the best of times, this patterns were pretty much non-existent but I got there.
It sits just on her hips, I felt it could have done with a ribbing waist band but, noooo, she wanted it that way.
I am surprised how much I like it.
The drop shoulder drapes elegantly and the colour is quite sophisticated.
Zara didn't want the cord at the neck, she preferred a clean look.
I have repeat orders for a black, grey and white version, for University next year.
This jumper is exactly what I had in mind, from the colour and feel of the fabric to the pattern. It`s absolutely perfect. Thankyou so, so much mum. It is extremely comfortable but still looks dressy. Next a white one please mum : D
Thanks for reading...
