The Ania Tunic + The Wild and Free Pants


Hi everyone! Is this me blogging again? Am I getting into the sewing+blogging loop again? I certainly don't have the time I used to have to sew.all.the.things, but I am managing to sew again! YAY! 

So, today I am sharing with you my recent makes. Two patterns by Coffee + Thread. Love Olga and absolutely love her patterns! 






Patterns:
The Ania Tunic and the Wild + Free Lounge Pants, both patterns by Coffee + Thread.

Fabric:
Ania Tunic: blue & white striped seersucker (purchased from Miss Matatabi) and vintage lace. The seersucker is just perfect for this pattern! So soft and with a beautiful drape. 

Wild + Free Lounge Pants: jersey knit from my stash (from my local fabric shop, Feira dos Tecidos).





Details:
The Ania tunic is available in sizes 9-12mo to 12y and it comes with two sleeve lengths (short and long). It also has optional pockets and a super easy closure at the back (see photos).

I made a size 7 (combined with size 8 for length). It is a bit too wide on her (as you ca see on some photos at the neckline) but I am making all the clothes for my kids 1 or 2 sizes bigger so they last a bit longer. At the rate they are growing these days who has the time to make new clothes every 2-3 months?! Not me. :) 

the only change I did was using French seams on a few seams. Next time I think I will shave off a bit of the sleeve head to make them just a tad less puffy, but I like them this way with this fabric. I will definitely make a few knit Ania tunics. they will be perfect for summer! 

I haven't made the beautiful bow pockets that come with the pattern because, in her words, pockets are for little girls and she is almost an adolescent. (Sighh...) She still loves the clothes I make for her but I think it won't last longer... one of these days she'll decide they are not cool anymore... 

As for the leggings, I used Coffee + Thread's Wild + Free Lounge Pants. I have tested them (you can see my testing version here) so I knew it was a great pattern. I made them really simple, no pockets, no cute animals on the knees (because again, that's for little girls in her words). 

Both patterns are amazing and the instructions are very, very good, and so are the construction techniques Olga uses.

    1. Thank you! I try not to be classic most of the times, but some times I just have to do it and if I make it to look just a bit trendy while doing it classy then I'm happy. :)
