Celina for Project Farmer's Market

Today we're highlighting the Up Beet Tee & Dress and the Turnip Up Trousers & Shorts and their designer, Celina of Petit a Petit + Family.


Hello! I’m Celina, the creator/ designer behind Petit a Petit and Family, and Ensemble Patterns.  I took my first sewing class when I was 12 and haven’t stopped creating since then.  I’ve had my own kids label which was made from only up-cycled materials, I’ve owned the coolest kids boutique here in Montreal but most recently besides designing clothes, you can find me creating social media content (photos, videos, tutorials, etc...) and teaching all things social media to big and small businesses alike. 


I had so much fun collaborating on this project, coming up with the theme and color scheme, as well as working on making our patterns work together and incorporating details that would flow from one style to the next.  I personally love creating designs that are stylish yet comfortable and I’m very keen on having special finishing touches or elements of surprise when it comes to construction.  I was excited to work on patterns that were suitable for both girls and boys.  For the UpBeet Tee & Dress, I matched a regular sleeve with a raglan one to give a fun design twist and so many options for color blocking.  I couldn’t help add a dress option too!  As for the Turnip Up Trousers & Shorts I went for style that was basic but on trend with a tapered pant/short with some fun details which makes it modern and cool. 


Our local farmer’s market is our favorite spot to hang out as a family. The colors and smells, the people watching and the amazing food are just a few things I love about the Atwater Market. If you are ever in Montreal, there are good chances you’ll bump into me and my kids on a Sunday morning there. 


Be sure to head over to Petit a Petit + Family to grab this darling color-blocked apron, perfect for cleaning and cooking the produce from Farmer's Market!
