Hibiscus now available in English 0

Right in the middle between Chic and Boho stands the Hibiscus blouse.

This ruffled blouse Sewing Pattern is one of our best-sellers in France, and is now available in English with a fully translated sewing pattern and guidebook.

As you can see, I tried it with different fabrics here :

  • White dobby fine cotton fabric and fluo pink piping,
  • Peony pink cotton crepon from ©FranceDuvalStalla and golden piping,
  • Light pink cotton poplin from @AtelierBrunette and golden piping

Choose your own fabric, cut the ruffles the way you want, bring your own buttons, and create your own blouse for girls aged 3-8 years. A unique piece.

This intermediate-level sewing pattern is a very nice way to use the practice you get from following our tutorial « sewing a piping ». A good placement, nicely sewed pipings and the lining make it a good fit for an intermediate sewer, or a very patient beginner.

First new sewing patterns for girls 0

It's been a week already? Well, it is already time for new sewing patterns. This week we add two bohemian sewing patterns for girls : one for newborns and babies, and another one for girls.

Volantis is not only a kingdom in Game of Thrones, nor only a constellation, it is now also a tank romper that's very easy for beginners and very easy to sew and to wear. I put some pompons for the pictures, but I advise you not to use any for security reasons.

It is the very first sewing pattern that I wrote first in english, and then translated to french. I would drink champagne for this small achievement, but in France, we only drink champagne once a week.


Dakar is a loose pants/trousers with elastics both as waistband and on the ankles. Loose fit and very easy to wear. The string is purely decorative.

I used an afro fabric, but other sewing addicts have used less decorative patterns. 

Ready ? Set… Launch! 0

The Ikatee project started almost a year ago, in september 2015, the same day as back-to-school : new overlock, new sewing machine, and many new notebooks to fill.

After several months of preparation, and a very nice opening of the french boutique at, many followers on Instagram, Pinterest and mostly Facebook, it has come… the time to check how well I speak english.

It's with a lot of pleasure and even more stress that I'm pleased to open the english speaking web site for Ikatee. Find all our new sewing patterns for babies and children in english on the web site, and don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter to discover the quality of our digital sewing patterns.
