The new robe...

Teresinha's robe was really old and dirty and she really needed one! My friend Constança, the queen of the vintage patterns, sent me one long time ago. I've never used a vintage pattern so I didn't know what to expect... I was impressed, good instructions with pictures, I love pictures! I envy Constança's collection, I wish I could find some around here. Constança, can you plsss plsss sell some of your patterns? 
I decided to make a "modern" version of the robe... and I love it! The only problem thing is that it's still to big on my little monkey. We will have to wait for next year to use it!

Pattern: donated by Saidos da Concha / Constança
Fabric: Fanfare, Cloud 9

And now I'm off to Portugal! Happy Easter everyone!

O roupao da Teresinha estaba mesmo velho e sujo, ela estava mesmo a precisar de um novo! A minha amiga Constança, a rainha dos modes antigos, enviou-me um ha muito tempo. Nunca tina usado moldes antigos, nao sabia muito bem o que ia encontrar... Fiquei impressionada, as instruçoes sao optimas e tem desenhos, adoro desenhos e esquemas! Tenho mesmo inveja da colecçao da Constança, adorava conseguir encontrar moldes antigos por estas bandas. Constança podes porrrr favor vender alguna dos teus moldes? 
Decidi fazer uma versao "moderna" do roupao... Adoro! O único problema questao é que esta enorme a minga pequena macaquinha. Vamos ter que esperar até ao próximo ano para poder usar! 
E agora vou de ferias! Adeusssss e ate para a semana!

  1. Tão fofo! Também nunca usei moldes vintage. Já estive com uns na mão e achei lindos. Tenho que preencher essa lacuna. Boa viagem e boa páscoa!

  2. Oh this is so cute! Well, I say too big is not too small ;) My daughter was given a robe a couple of years ago, it had bunny ears on the hood and the cuttest little bunny ail, and although it was big for her at the time he loved wearing it. She is still in love with it and wearing it on colder mornings/days now two years later (although I will have to make her a new one soom). Love this fabric! Looks so cute and cosy :)

    1. I love it Jenya! It's actually luck that it's big on her, we are entering summer and she wont be needing it for some months... :-)

  3. I love vintage patterns, but I often get stuck with their (lack) of instructions. Guess, I need to practice more ;)
    Yours looks so lovely (love that fabric). Happy Easter ;)

    1. Este era bastanet completo em termos de instrucçoes... fiquei bastante impressionada! Bem melhor que qualquer Burda ou Octtobre (era mais o que estava a espera)...

  4. Eu tb nunca usei moldes vintage, e não sinto a falta sinceramente. Tenho outros que sendo modernos, dão perfeitamente para criar looks vintage sempre que me apetece. ;) O robe ficou super fofo.
