#Outfit# Ondée à la française

Here is the first finished project of my #makenine challenge: a striped Ondée sweater. So French!

Breton-stripes are a true French wardrobe staple. For us, they basically count as neutrals as much as black, white, nude or navy. They go with everything!


I made this sweater out of a luscious striped interlock knit from Harts Fabric, thick and very soft. At first I considered using this fabric to make a looser top, using the Plantain tee pattern. In the end I’m glad I went with Ondée, as it goes with so many items in my wardrobe. I’m wearing it here with a coral scuba Zéphyr skirt, but it also works great on all my fit and flare dresses 🙂 .


So, it’s my first project out of nine, and it’s already August: not that great! It turns out that when you sew all day as part of your job, it’s hard to get motivated to sew for yourself in your free time. I also have to admit that during the summer, my productivity is at an all-time low! Between the exhausting heat and the cloudless sky calling me outside, I have a lot of trouble staying in front of my sewing machine… Is it the same for you?

This looks lovely Camille; a great combination. I have two Ondees to make using my old version of the pattern – did you lengthen the top or is this the updated version of the pattern. Many thanks Peta

    Thanks Peta! I used the first edition of the pattern and lengthened it by 2 cm to accommodate my long bust, so it is slightly longer than the pattern in the new edition.
