Swimsuits for girls and boys 0

Summer is coming, it's time to prepare holidays , jump into the sea or the pool;

Here are 2 patterns for you to sew swimsuits for children from 3 up to 12 years

Paulette first, the swimsuit developed in collaboration with Paule from the blog By Paulette, a bubbly woman, who loves colours and makes us discover places, favorites, desires. I like her creations, her blog articles too. We imagined a girl pattern with multiple possibilities; a 1-piece from the most basic to the most worked with options of cutouts, insertions of ruffles, frills ... And a 2-piece with a high-waist panty for a retro look, as we like at ikatee. Chic and with temperament! It's up to you to imagine your Paulette!

It will be sewn with full lining,  it ensures comfort. We will learn you how to sew the the small rubber elastic, hyper resistant to chlorine and salt, we will tame lycra, which is so comfortable. Do not panic, it's meticulous but simple in the end.

The pretty detail we like at ikatee ... the little ruffles inserted into the suspenders

and for the boys, we also developed little boxershorty,  simple but hyper molding for a perfect fit!

Sebastien and Paulette .... 2 patterns, and endless versions of swimsuits!

IDA and LOUISE, our new sewing patterns by ikatee x Petites Choses 0

Fanny discovered Ikatee at its beginning.

An immediate favorite for its modern  designs and its chic and comfortable fittings.

Stephanie, who likes neat details and romantic and modern clothes, could only adhere to the elegant universe and the talents of seamstress Fanny.

It was after a meeting at the Creation and Savoir Faire Show in Paris that the idea of ​​a collaboration was born. Both have imagined Ida and Louise, refined dresses and tops inspired by the Victorian era (but version 2.0): a small ruffled collar, structured cuts, comfortable to wear. The idea was also to propose evolutive patterns depending on the season (to be worn summer and winter) ... and evolving in difficulties of making. Thus multiple versions are possible; some, easy and accessible to all and more technical options.

For the 2 sewing patterns, ikatee also offers hyper-detailed instruction English booklets montage videos (only in French at the moment but English versionof the video will be available soon); we have also created a menu by chapter to visualize points that interest you directly. Louise's video is already available in free access on the site. Ida's will be online in a 10 days.

The new collab ikatee x Petites Choses (episode 8) 0

The release of the  @ikatee x @petites_choses__  is imminent...
We just have enough time to introduce Louise...
Ah Louise... of course, we find the little collar that is common to our theme: the Victorian era! (collar which, as for Ida, is not mandatory in our boss)
Apart from this collar, it consists of a slightly advanced yoke on the front, and right on the back; of on the front as on the back, and a back placket.
Then it is up to you to compose your Louise because several variations are possible. Focus, let's go.
* Louise is a blouse or a dress.
* it can also be sewn with or without collar.
A collar like Ida? Of course No! This one is "Double" with 2 ruffles at top and below the stand collar.
* And about sleeves?: 2 options. You can choose for the elegant long sleeve that ends with a small slightly tightened cuffs. Otherwise, more summer and relaxing: the short butterfly sleeve and gathered
* Finally, in long sleeves: you have a choice between:
- a back ruffle
- or small ruffles at shoulders: these are discreet and oriented inside...
- or you can also choose not to add ruffles at all!
We counted: 16 possible versions for Louise!! What to mix options to get different styles but also to wear Louise summer as winter!
The sewing level?
Louise is an evolutionary pattern.
- if you are a beginner, we advise you to start with short sleeves, dress or blouse but without the collar. It's simple and fast for a hot result! Then you can make the style again with more technical variations: first the long sleeve, then the ruffles, and finally collar
Just know that the step by step guidebook is obviously illustrated but above all, @ikatee prepared you a video of all stages!
The Louise sewing pattern will be available end of Sept.
