Christmas 2016 window display at our West Hampstead shop!
This window! It is so full of amazing, gorgeous things and I love it so much and am so proud! I hope you’ll come by our West Hampstead shop and see everything in person.
First, the garments! These were sewn by Kym.
We’ve put two tulle underskirts under there to give it that lovely full silhouette. It’s such a stunner!
Our little man is wearing a simplified Oliver + S Art Museum Vest in Ho Ho Ho in Red from Winter Essentials IV. Kym used it for the front and the back so it’s just so fun and charming (so stealing this for Harvey!) The shorts are Oliver + S Sketchbook Shorts in Robert Kaufman‘s Manchester in Charcoal.
Our little girl is wearing a Made by Rae Geranium Dress (we can’t get enough of this pattern) in Timber Valley in Evergreen Metallic from Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge and it’s the cutest, loveliest Christmas dress ever!
Caroline made the quilt using a Christmas tree block she created and it looks so good! We’ll be sharing a tutorial on this quilt next week.
We put a bundle of the fabrics she used for the trees together you can find it here. It’s lots of Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge and a few other gorgeous fabrics with metallic gold or red and green designs.
A few of the fabrics Caroline used were directional, and when you cut the trees for these blocks you end up with upside-down triangles that are perfect for bunting. If you make both projects, this is a no-waste fabric situation!
She backed the bunting with Tangly Lights in Santa from All the Trimmings by Riley Blake and used white bias binding to string them together.
Kym made the toddler-sized tree based on the free Stanley Tree pattern from Sewaholic. With the larger version of the pattern as a starting point, we re-drew the tree to make it as tall as possible while still fitting on half the width of standard fabric. The fabric we chose for the tree is Corny Cane in Green from Holiday by Michael Miller and it’s so perfect for this project!
Kym also made the smaller version of the pattern for our table with scraps from the big tree. We topped both with a simple red ribbon bow.
Kym shared her top five tips for sewing a Stanley Tree if you’d like to make your own!
