Tulip international blog tour - day 2

Yesterday our Tulip pattern started its journey around the world, today it travels to the UK and to Israel. Two countries I have never been myself, so it felt a little special to send my pattern baby there :-) But see what Maria and Maarika have done with it! Both of their dresses are gorgeous!

Maria blogs at Fairies, Bubbles & Co. She is a Portuguese lady living in the UK right now, but I think her style still can be called "Portuguese". She sews lots of classic style dresses and blouses for her daughters, often playing with collars, ruffles and floral fabrics. She chose a Nani Iro double gauze for her Tulip dress and what's not to love about that choice. Double gauze is perfect for this pattern! Hop over to her blog for more pictures of this beautiful ice blue dress!

Next up is Maarika, a German lady currently living in Jerusalem. Our Tulip bloggers for today are quite international, aren't they? 😀Although autumn is coming in Jerusalem, Maarika tried to hold on to summer a little more with her choice for this colorful floral fabric. However, the kneesocks and brown boots make it perfectly adapted for fall! All about this cute little girl and her Tulip in both German and English at Liivi & Liivi

Portugal, England, Germany and Israel. Four more countries to add to our Tulip world map!

I want to finish today's post with two Tulips that aren't on the tour, but just too nice not to show you! Belgian bloggers An and Annick let their magic work on our pattern and I'm totally amazed by the results. 

An is mom to two boys so she doesn't do a lot of dress sewing, but as a part of Kids On Tour (some sort of Secret Santa swap project between a bunch of Belgian sewing bloggers) she sewed this super cute Tulip for Dorothee's daughter Noortje!

Annick was one of our pattern testers back in August and we were very lucky to have her beautiful daughter Eloise as a model for the Tulip photoshoot. After her first tester Tulip she sewed three more and I love each of them just as much. Yesterday she posted her latest dress, in a very special Owl fabric by Bambiblauw. I just couldn't resist showing you this gem!
