Stylo ~ Flannel Jacket

It was really hard not to spill the beans for a while. I was invited to contribute to a section of "1 fabric 5 designers" in Stylo magazine. Stylo is the first fashion forward eMagazine centered around children's sewing patterns and style. After I accepted the challenge happily, I received 2 yards of beautiful flannel from Miss Matatabi, from japan. After going back and forth, I decided to use a pattern I found in a Japanese sewing book ‘ほんのり sweet 女の子の服 ‘ by 荒木由紀(Yuki Araki). Here are the results...

I also made a headband to go with the top.

In the sewing book, it was introduced as "cardigan" and it was made with knit. I thought if I made it with flannel, Rachel could wear it more like a shirt or jacket.

I added the belt loops and small pom-pom trim with velvet ribbon to finish it off.

My friend Kristina of Kristina Bills Photography took these beautiful pictures for me. Thanks, Kristina!

After waiting for a while, I was so happy to go through the magazine for the first time. BOY it is AMAZING! Other contributors did such an amazing job... I mean the choice of fabric to sewing to such stylish photos. I was in ooh's and ah's, and inspired by them so much. Head over to check out Stylo right now, you don't wanna miss this issue!!
