Hello! Celina here, I am back sharing once again my Sew Japan, this time for the month of April. When Mie showed me the dress she was making for Petit a Petit and Family, I knew I wanted to make one too- naturally it's from my favourite Japanese Pattern book! I thought it would be fun if we both shared the same dress on the same day, hers on my blog and mine on hers. I hope you will find it as amusing as we do. I think it's fun to see how we each interpreted the style and pattern, how we each made it our own and how we both totally did not follow all the instructions in the book. Not that we can read any Japanese anyways! haha. Funnily enough we did end up making some similar changes.

Today I have a quick Burda Style project on the blog. A project that has caused me a lot of head scratching and wondering but it had nothing to do with the sewing.... I promise I will be back explaining that cliffhanger, ha.
It's a Burda Style pattern 03/2016 #103A Cropped T-Shirt.
I immediately fell for the simple cut but with some interesting details such as the significant hi-low hem and the big back pleat.

Let's start by how we are feeling about this dress.
That was her idea with the heart by the way (but I do agree). And it's obviously double perfect because not only do we love it, it also imitates the cuuuute top-of-a-heart shape on the front bodice and bottom-of-a-heart on the back bodice. You are basically being hugged by a heart when you are wearing this dress.

Hello, My name is Mie and I'm addicted to stripy fabric!
(And a little bit to sherpa too).
I have really been looking forward to show you this cardigan.

Don't say I didn't warn you about lots of stripes on the blog and here we go again....
The stripy item is The Aurora Tee by Hey June Patterns and the skirt is the Narrow Pleated Skirt 10/2015 #107 from Burda Style. It is my first time sewing both patterns.
