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.

The new collab ikatee x Petites Choses (episode 7) 0

Tomorrow you'll see second sewing pattern Louise... but in the meantime, here's a version of Ida I love in cotton / Linen.
 
 
Before I made the very first prototype, we took time with Fanny @petites_choses__ to detail the model as we wanted, each bringing his stone to the building and bouncing on the other's ideas: Length of sleeves, Shoulder Head, neck width,... everything happened!
 
In the end, I really love this style! Ida is refined, sweet and modern...
 
Few words to Women: you were a few to ask if ida would also exist for adults. For Now, it's not planned! But we heard you, and you never have to say

The new colla ikatee x Petites Choses (episode 6) 0

Being cool for the BACK TO SCHOOL.... for the new Ida sewing patterna, we wanted a versatile pattern, in order to adapt the style and to get a contemporary one with a current detail (the ruffled yoke) associated with an ultra practical shape. The armhole has been redesigned for short sleeves in a Kimono Spirit (the long sleeves version is a classic set-in sleeve armhole); this allows to give ease and a graphic look that combines super well with the curves of the top and the large volume (wheel and puckers); it breaks the "Ultra Refined" side of the blouse and it allows different outfits, other uses.
Sewing Ida with short sleeves in jersey appeared as something obvious to me!
Ida is also a daily style, romantic and casual at the same time.
This is what I love with sewing; starting from a inspiration, then from the pattern and rethinking options, reinventing garments according to the material used and the finishes chosen...
Ida: coming soon
