one of my favorite projects in kid’s sewingblogland over the last year has been STYLO Magazine, the brainchild of Celina of Petit à Petit and Family and Jess of The Sewing Rabbit. it’s an online magazine featuring fashion-forward kids clothes – and all of the outfits are handmade!
when first issue came out in January, it blew me away with how editorial and different it was from the usual fare – the looks pushed the envelope and i saw something really fresh and new going on. it inspired me, as did issue two, which came out in May. C was too little for me to participate back then, but i put a bug in Celina’s ear that i reeeeeally hoped i could join in for a future STYLO, and i was so excited to contribute to issue 3, which is now live!
i made up a storyline of a “girl detective” hot on the trail of her “archvillain nemesis” and sewed two outfits for E so she could play each role. i sewed 7 pieces of clothing, knitted a scarf, and made accessories too, and i’m thrilled to have brought my vision to life. it was a lot of work, but so creatively satisfying. E and i had a super fun photoshoot where she really got into character – she’s cunning, she’s stylish, and she’s trying to take over the world!
the photo above is a preview of my villain look…you’ll need to head on over to STYLO to see my detective look and to check out the fantastic projects by my co-contributors. there’s some serious talent in there. gorgeous photography, great ideas, it’s so exciting to see everyone rise to the challenge.
