Remember this refashion contest I won on Thread & Needles more than a year ago? For my first place, I had a voucher from France Duval-Stalla that I’ve used recently.
When visiting their website, I noticed their fleece offer, fabric that I love so much in winter for its softness and warmth. I chose 100% brushed cotton in candy pink. It marks a little, which is normal considering its composition, but it is very comfortable to wear and almost as warm as a cashmere sweater.
For the cut, I found inspiration into a Zara sweater I bought a few years ago. The fabric was beginning to loose a bit. The original model had short sleeves, I did a winter version:
With the scrapings I sewed two mini-dresses decorated with pink tulle and silver rose piping. The princess can brave the cold now.
