An Indian Colombine - Papillon et Mandarine

Buenos días!
Good morning! 
Por fin hemos tenido buen tiempo en Madrid y he podido sacarle fotos a la nena con las cositas que estoy cosiendo para la primavera-verano! Esta blusa a día de hoy, creo que es de mis favoritas. Y lo es por varios motivos. El primero es que la tela viene de la India. De una tienda de descubrí por casualidad en Etsy (The Delhi Store) y que me tiene enamorada. Tienen sedas, algodón, tiras decorativas bordadas para Saris, sellos labrados a mano para estampar la tela...
We finally had good weather in Madrid and I was able to take some pictures of the latest things I've been making for spring-summer on the model! This blouse is for sure one of my favourites of all the things I've made. And there are several reasons for this :) The first one is the fabric. It comes from India; from a beautiful shop I came accross by chance in Etsy called: The Delhi Store. They have beautiful silk, soft cotton fabric, vintage trims for Saris and hand carved stamps for printing your own fabric...
 
La tela de la blusa es un algodón súper suave con un estampado entre rosa y naranja neon y está pintado a mano con una técnica que llaman "Hand Block Printing". Utilizan madera labrada con el mismo dibujo repetido varias veces y estampan la tela de forma artesanal repitiendo el patrón a lo largo de toda la tela. 
The fabric I used is a super soft cotton with a floral pattern in an orange-pink neon and is hand painted with a technique called "Hand Block Printing". They use a hand carved wooden stamp with the same pattern repeated several times and they print the whole fabric handcrafted.
El patrón una blusa "Colombine" de Papillon et Mandarine con algún toque personal. Lo que hecho sin mangas inspirados de nuevo en las versiones de "S is for Sewing" :-) y le he añadido dos volantes siguiendo las costuras triangulares que recorren el cuerpo del vestido desde la parte delantera hasta la trasera. Me encanta como queda para una blusa de verano vaporosa.
For the pattern I used the "Colombine" blouse by Papillon et Mandarine with a personal touch. I made it sleeveless (inspired again in "S is for Sewing" versions :-) ) and I added some ruffles in the triangular seams of the bodice, starting in the front piece and finishing in the back. I love the flowing look for a summer blouse.
Y de regalo esta fotito de la niña hecha en casa, que sale con una cara preciosa :)
I had to add this picture we took at home :) Love her face!
En breve seguimos con más ideas para el veranito! Qué ganas de que llegue!
We will keep you posted with some more ideas for this summer!!! 
Besos // Kisses!
Fátima.
