The new collab ikatee x Petites Choses (episode 4) 0
This is our first style, Ida. What's characteristic of Ida is her nice yoke on the front. Of course we find the typical small collar of the beginning of the twentieth (Col which is not necessary in our pattern). We wanted a structured design, flared on the bottom with a nice volume created by the ruffles on the front like on the back. At the top of the back: an opening as a drop design that we close with a button (or ribbon, you are the boss).
We also worked well on finishing. So many seams are invisible
Options: it can be sewn into several versions:
Blouse or dress • with collar or without collar • with long sleeves or with Kimono Short Sleeves.
No less than 8 possible versions for sweet Ida! And good luck to choose because we find the 8 super cute!
Again, many options! All depends on the style we wish: Checks (Tartan, Vichy..) / Stripes - Double Gauze / English Embroidery / Plumetis / Chambray / Viscose or even jersey (yes you read well, the sewing pattern works super well in Jersey (without collar), which gives it a more casual but always elegant style ...
Technical points? The assembly of the yoke on the front, the technique of the enclosed seams to hide the sewing edges, and if you do the version with the stand collar: the ruffle of the collar.
Don't worry, all steps are clearly explained and illustrated in the step by step and later in a video that will resume the entire assembly!
The Ida sewing pattern will be available soon in French version . Release by end of September in English

A new collaboration : Ikatee x Petites Choses (episode 1) 0
It's with a real pleasure that I announce my new collaboration... and it's with the talented and delicate Fanny @petites_choses.
The official release of the fruit of our work is planned in 2 weeks, so in the meantime, we wanted to take you backstage and tell you in a few days these few months spent working together!
I discovered Fanny on Instagram. Keen on sewing, she creates many garments from sewing patterns often adapted according to her inspirations... and that, I love it. She regularly presented beautiful garments made from ikatee's sewing patterns.
Then she participated in the experience called ©capsul studio, a concept based on the sale of clothing made from sewing pattern partner brands. Ikatee was also part of the adventure. So Fanny proposed a nice child corner by taking pleasure in sewing her "mini things", that she always reinvented.
This is what finally led us to meet at the fair Creations & Savoir-Faire 2017 in Paris. Fanny came to meet. For those who do not know her, she is a passionate who has a taste for the delicate universe, beautiful materials, modern outfits, always chic and with great finishes. She has a real talent in design; she starts from her inspirations and transforms and combines the products between them with Brio. Besides, Fanny makes almost professional finishes and I have to say that the quality of her works really impressed me... yet it's not her real job (she is orthoptist in life :) the original creations she proposed from the sewing patterns quickly made me imagine a collaboration ; a partnership animated by the envy of fine, contemporary products.
A few months later, I proposed Fanny to develop together a child stylde that we would turn into a sewing pattern for kids.
... we tell you more quickly, be patient!
