Today we celebrate love! We wish you a very beautiful Valentine’s Day, enjoy those you love and make love live all around you. Unlike last year, this year there is no capsule for this particular event. We like novelty and we love to offer you different creations according to our inspirations. A year ago we unveiled our project “I love you”. The backstage section had not yet appeared on the blog and we had not discussed with you the underside of this event. It must be said that with 4 hands at the time we could not do everything. It is with pleasure that we offer a retrospective of our first sewing pattern who opened the door to this fabulous adventure.
“I love you”
Launch Saturday February 6, 2021
Just a year ago we unveiled our Valentine’s Day capsule with our very first pattern. We invite you today to come back to this fabulous memory and behind the scenes of this capsule dear to our hearts.
The birth of the project
Lise D. has just joined Lise Tailor to continue writing the fabulous story of the brand. During a conversation, Lise P. shows her new colleague the reasons why she had a crush (literally ❤️) some time before. This soft and romantic motif evoking love seemed obvious for a special Valentine’s Day capsule. Ideas fuse and follow each other on this motif…
For the occasion there would of course be accessories, as Lise P. used to offer for each collection. It was the perfect opportunity to launch the vanity, a project Lise P. had already been working on for several weeks/months. For the anecdote, the final vanity was finally slightly modified compared to that of the photos. We preferred to make it wider so that it would be easier and more pleasant to sew.
The sewing Pattern
With the “I love you” viscose, they wanted to push the project even further: sew pretty pajamas. With its romantic notes, they imagined this motif for the interior. Through her past experiences, Lise D. possessed the codes of lingerie and the rules of patronage. It was decided, Lise Tailor would launch her first sewing pattern in February 2021: short pajamas with a pretty camisole with thin straps and pretty bows, a V-neckline to make it comfortable and a bit sexy. This model has been designed for beginners and so that everyone can have fun creating.
It was the brand’s first steps in patterns and we had to find a printer for the pattern sheets and create a cover from scratch. An exhaustive list of what the cover should contain was defined to create the ideal cover for us: a technical drawing, a photo, the necessary footage quickly visible, a short description of the model, the name, the difficulty and the pattern. The cover had to be able to close with a Velcro to slip its transferred pieces into it and be able to be opened and closed at will.
The cover had to be pretty, a beautiful object that we want to keep. The flap has been scalloped to reflect the girly spirit of the brand. This cover has since evolved, we are sometimes forced to learn on the job. The too thick initial pouch was damaged during transport, later a new, thinner imprint was created.
The attention to detail has always been at the heart of the brand’s concerns and for this project too, it needed the extra detail: the lace. Produced in France, it has been designed exclusively to blend perfectly with the fabric.
The DNA of the brand resided in the fact of offering ready-to-sew kits for sewing with complete peace of mind. 150 kits have been prepared with love and patience. We had to cut the fabric, the elastic, the lace, the iron-on and slip in the printed pattern and the thread. A gigantic job for a big launch. In less than a morning, all of our kits were sold. The complex logistics of this project did not allow us to sustain this operation. This is how we decided to subsequently offer the fabric, the pattern and the lace individually.
I love you today…
Since then, you have honored our “I love you” fabric with magnificent dresses or blouses. We loved this pattern but weren’t 100% sure you’d wear it all the time. It was a wonderful surprise to see it made your own so quickly. We were particularly touched by the beautiful Caprioccioli dress sewn by Estelle from Apolline Patterns. You can review the pretty achievements here.
To meet your many requests, this fabric has even been reprinted 3 times. It is always difficult to know in advance whether a pattern will please a little, a lot or crazy. This viscose, like all our fabrics, was exclusive and ephemeral. You won’t find any more on our shop (perhaps at some of our retailers) but the pattern continues to live its life with all the magnificent fabrics you choose. The last time we sewed this pattern, we chose Comète viscose.
