When Marte announced a secret summer blog action over at Compagnie M. I didn’t have to think twice before adding my name to the list.
When I found out that the subject of our secret mission was to be the Mara Blouse, I was thrilled.
You can see my Paris inspired Mara blouse, head on over to the Mara blog now and check it out…then head on back to find out how you can win some super prizes.
If you’d like to make your own version of the Mara blouse, Marte is generously offering a 10% discount on the pattern from now until 17th August 2014. Just pop over to her shop and use the code MARA-ACTION.
Once you’ve bought your pattern, why not enter your Mara in the sewalong. There are some great prizes to be won…check them out here! The closing date for the sewalong is 17th August 2014.
A note about the fabric:
Whilst we are now right at the beginning of the summer holidays, when very little in the way of sewing will take place, I wanted to be prepared for the raft of family events and parties that will take place in the autumn. With that in mind I created a season appropriate party outfit for Button that will be equally at home at a family lunch or a school friends bash at a play centre.
My fabric choice was a complete antidote the the raft of Pepto Bismol and Acid Barbie Pink that my little miss has been choosing at every opportunity recently. I completely pulled rank on this…I’m sewing it…I get to choose the fabric. Total Mummy Brat moment and I’m not sorry! 😉
The Eiffel Tower fabric is from Oh Sew Crafty on eBay, and the spot from Dunelm.
I received a complimentary copy of the Mara pattern in return for my participation in the Blog Tour. As always, all opinions are entirely my own.
