Fibre Mood Speical Issue No 2

The latest Special Issue of Fibre Mood has launched today and it is special indeed! With 19 new patters in this issue, including 7 patterns for kids and 4 summer accessories, this issue has your summer wardrobe sorted!

 

Augusta Dress

Fibre Mood Monochrome Grid Viscose with Tencel Lyocell fibres

This will no doubt become your favourite summer dress: a lovely, loose fit with a touch of class, for a city trip and on the way to the beach and everything in between. Augusta is oversized and falls to knee length, but you can make the dress any length you like. Augusta is also perfect as a blouse! This shirt dress looks elegant thanks to its rolled short sleeves, collar with collar band, concealed button fastening and side seam pockets. The gathers in front and back make it a graceful cut, perfect for that summer breeze.

Fibre Mood Cotton Linen Bark Jacquard in Purple

Fabric suggestions: Chambray, linen, poplin, voile cotton, crepon, crepe, supple twill, double gauze, seersucker, washed silk, etc. In short, a range of choices for this summer dress. If you want extra mobility in your dress, choose a supple fabric. Does a statement piece make your heart beat faster? You’ll get a brilliant look with a stiffer fabric.


Holiday tip: go for a sheer fabric for a pool or beach cover up!

 

Terrazzo White Linen Viscose Blend Fabric

 

Blossom Dress

Fibre Mood Floral Outline on White Ecovero Viscose  

A sunset, a cosy conversation, a barefoot walk on the beach: this romantic, oversized dress suits all your plans perfectly. The deep V-décolleté with a bow gives Blossom a seductive edge, and the ruffled skirt creates a nice, breezy effect. You determine the length. Bonus: the gathers at the top and the elasticated casing at the bottom create a nice flounce effect and allow you to elegantly roll up the sleeves.
 

Fabric Suggestions: This dress calls for an elegant fabric like double gauze, linen, voile cotton, poplin, seersucker, chambray, etc.

 

Melange Burgundy Cotton Double Gauze

 

Coral Dress

Fibre Mood Floral Outline on Pink Cotton Double Gauze

Thirty degrees and higher in the forecast? With its shoulder straps, open back, and airy cut, Coral is perfectly heat wave-proof. The ties on the back make for an original eye-catcher, but can also be omitted. Your shoulder straps will just have a little less ‘hold’ in that case. The gathers along the neckline enhance the flowing effect, while the side seam pockets are a practical addition. Coral is a long summer dress, but can, of course, be shortened.

Fabric Suggestions: Avoid overly thick fabrics for this long dress: Coral falls for thinner, summery fabrics such as voile cotton, linen, double gauze, chambray, seersucker, crepe and crepon, satin, and washed silk.

White Textured Cotton Check Fabric

 

Dahlia Shorts

 

Cousette Veverine Cotton Gabardine Fabric

A must in your holiday suitcase: Dahlia, with its high, pleated waistline, is the definition of elegant shorts. The legs are wide with a cuff, mixing comfort with style. Furthermore, the side pockets, buttoned waistband, and zip fly closure complete these shorts.

Breeze Light Blue Enzyme Washed Pure Linen

Fabric Suggestions: To do justice to the model, choose fabrics such as twill, poplin, denim, linen, or woven jacquard. 

Peonies Natural Cotton Linen Jacquard

 

Dune Top

Flow Orange Viscose Linen Blend Fabric

The perfect top for a holiday on la isla bonita! This off-shoulder model looks extra elegant and is just brimming with holiday vibes. You could add elastic at the hem, but if you choose not to, you’ll have a nice, loose top. Do you prefer to turn it into a dress? Go for it!

Fabric Suggestions: Dune is undoubtedly most beautiful in flowing, lighter weight fabrics such as crepe, muslin or chambray.

Serene Sandwashed Viscose in Apricot

 

Lucca

Lush in Sage Green Jersey Fabric with Tencel Fibres

The swimsuit as an eye-catcher. This isn’t just a holiday must
for swimming; this off-shoulder, ultra-feminine swimsuit with asymmetric neckline-arm cut is also great for strolling around. The flounce gives Lucca a tropical touch, but can also be left out for a minimal look. Finish the edges with swimsuit elastic.

Fabric Suggestions: For a swimsuit, you need a stretchy swimsuit fabric. We used a blend of recycled polyester and elastane. Would you rather wear Lucca as a body paired with a long skirt, trousers, or shorts perhaps? Then choose bi-stretch jersey.

 

Nikka Dress

Fibre Mood Cotton Linen Bark Jacquard in Deep Coral

Nikka’s all about those summery layers. This sleeveless maxi dress drapes playfully and airily thanks to the gathering. The neckline is rounded and quite closed for some contrast. Original touch: the deep V-arm armholes overlap to give an interesting shape. Furthermore, the bust darts, side seam pockets and a blind zip fastening at the back make the dress absolutely perfect.

Fabric Suggestions: From fabrics with a supple drape to semi-rigid fabrics, Nikka is flexible when it comes to fabric choice. Wovens such as seersucker, poplin, linen, supple twill, double gauze, chambray, etc. are very good choices.

Stripe Light Blue Cotton Linen Fabric

 

Ocean Top

Fibre Mood Monochrome Grid Viscose with Tencel Lyocell fibres

Sleeveless beauty: this oversized top mixes a simple, round neckline at the front with a playful V-neckline with button fastening at the back. There are subtle pleats in the front, making the top drape nicely. More details? Ocean does not opt for a classic shoulder seam, but instead lets the shoulder piece run slightly down the back. This sleeveless top is long, but of course you choose the ideal length yourself.

Fabric Suggestions: To do full justice to the subtle pleats in the front, go for a flowing fabric such as crepe, crepon, satin or seersucker.

Embroidered Flowers Emerald Cotton Double Gauze

 

Children’s Patterns

Daisy Top and Dress 

Fibre Mood Stone Washed Grass Green Combed Cotton

 A wow sleeve with impact! Daisy has lots of character thanks to the voluminous raglan sleeves with a puffed effect. Mini, midi, maxi... you choose. The oversized A-line dress remains otherwise simple, but does play with gathers and pleats around the neckline, adding extra flair. And, of course, this model also has handy pockets in the side seam.

Fabric Suggestions: Daisy is at her best with a summery fabric like poplin, batiste or chambray. If you prefer a romantic touch, opt for a print with small flowers or a vichy check à la Brigitte Bardot. If you’re all about pure, minimalist looks, opt for a soft earth or pastel shade.

 

Kira Shirt

Fibre Mood Watercolour Brushstrokes Cotton Poplin

Kira is cute! This short, button-up blouse is oversized and therefore nice and summery. The gathers on the back also give the pattern a relaxed vibe. Is oversized not really your thing? Then just make it a size (or two) smaller. In that case, it is important to carefully check the table of measurements to ensure that there is enough freedom of movement in your blouse. More fun details? A collar and cuffed short sleeves.

Fabric Suggestions: If you use a fabric with a supple drape, Kira will ‘fall’ nicely and look less bulky. If a statement look is more your thing, go for a fabric that is a bit stiffer and has more body. Our favourite fabrics for this project are poplin, chambray, lyocell, double gauze, organza, seersucker and linen. Choose a solid fabric or make it extra summery with a print such as polka dots, flowers, stripes or checks.

Sweet Small Flowers in Peach Cotton Double Gauze

 

Marisol Top

Melange Rose Cotton Double Gauze

Summer’s here and now you fancy a fast and easy project? You’ll be sewing this cropped top like a pro in no time! The Marisol’s round neckline gets that extra touch by finishing with bias tape. The three-quarter sleeves are finished with elastic. Do you prefer flowing sleeves? Then leave the elastic out. The hem of the top is also finished with elastic. (There is an adults version in Issue 20 of Fibre Mood.)

Fabric Suggestions: You can really go with whatever you like for Marisol. How about a woven or knitted fabric, such as chambray, lyocell, linen, double gauze, interlock or French terry? Want your top to drape smoothly? Crepe or woven viscose reduces the volume. If you just love texture and volume, poplin will give you a great effect.

 

Parker Shorts

9oz Recycled Stretch Denim in Blue

Running wild, skating, or playing for hours is a must in these knee-length cargo shorts. A cool sewing project for you and the elasticated waistband and the patch pockets on the back will no doubt make for a new favourite in your child’s wardrobe. And the faux fly? That’s there for aesthetics!

Fabric Suggestions: Parker looks best sturdy and so you might choose denim, for example, but poplin or linen also suit this model nicely.

Breeze Cream Tan Enzyme Washed Linen

 

Pearl Jumpsuit

Stripe Blue Linen Cotton Fabric

This nice, loose, oversized jumpsuit with wide shoulder straps is 100% summer and 100% suitable for play. Essential for all those treasures on the go: two side seam pockets!

Fabric Suggestions: Here the type of fabric determines the look of the garment, fabrics with a supple drape will work as will stiffer fabrics. Use some poplin, chambray, lyocell, double gauze, organza, seersucker or linen, for example.

 

Rae Top

Mind the Maker Flowery Jolly Green ECOVERO Leia Viscose Crepe

Easy does it, especially during the summer months when your diary is full of sunny plans. This oversized, unisex shirt with a rounded neckline will have you ready in no time. Handy extra: there is an invisible button fastening on the shoulder seam. And the length? You can adapt this to your preference, naturally.

Fabric Suggestions: Depending on the fabric chosen, this piece will have a different look. For Rae, choose a woven or a knitted fabric such as interlock, single or double jersey, French terry, poplin, voile cotton, chambray, double gauze, linen, etc.

 

Sunny Dress

Dashes Terracotta Cotton Double Gauze

Sunny + funny: this model has an extra sunny look with its ruffled, short sleeves. Perfect as a playful summer dress or easily shortened to create an elegant top. Beautiful details? The deep armhole with insert, the button fastening at the centre back seam, and the round neckline finished with bias tape. The pockets in the side seam are also wonderfully practical.

Fabric Suggestions: The possibilities are practically endless: poplin, chambray, lyocell, double gauze, crepe, satin, embroidery, lace, jacquard, seersucker, etc. Even a knitted fabric results in a very nice look. We’re curious to see what you fall for!

Tip: if you want to turn the sleeves into statement sleeves, go for a stiff fabric.
