New Look Blog Tour

by Elsa

Hello! It’s my turn, along with my fellow bloggers, to show you some outfits I made using Gracious Threads‘ patterns in honor of her new blog and shop‘s look.

Do not forget to use ‘ANEWLOOK’ code on her shop (only this shop, not Etsy‘s) to get 40% off your purchase.

Back to our patterns.

I chose to sew the Raindrop Tee along with a Lazy Days Lounge Pants (Jess kindly offered me the latter).

I decided to step out of my comfort zone by 1. choosing colors I had never chosen before 2. modifying a pattern a bit.

The Raindrop Tee underwent some alterations. I cut a size 8, shortened front and back a bit and added some stretchy black lace along with NEON PINK knit (ok, it looks coral rather than neon pink…). I also lengthened the sleeves to get a ruche look by simply sewing elastic on them. Use a zig-zag stitch while pulling your elastic and voila, easy-peasy!


The neckline is really feminine and gracefully shows the neck. I love it!



The Lazy Days Lounge Pants are the quickest pants I’ve ever sewn!!! I chose to add a touch of pink to the pockets, waistband and cuffs. They are extremely comfy (so she said!!). I used some French terry I had bought (and forgotten…!).

And do not forget to have a look at the other bloggers’ works! They all are lovely and fun!
