Suco by Susana sews Project Jet Set

 And we're off again!  We loved visiting Tokyo with Lindsay, and now we're in Lisbon for Day 8 of our Project Jet Set travels!

We got the royal tour of Lisbon from Susana of Suco by Susana, and her kids were wearing such fun clothes from the Project Jet Set pattern collection.  We asked her more about them.

Comfortable shorts and lightweight pants with knit tops are perfect for the warm and sunny weather, so for Joana I made the Singapore pants in a cotton/linen blend from Katia paired with a Sevilla top. Luís' favorite combination this spring is Singapore shorts with Lemon tees, so he got some shorts in lightweight denim and in cotton/linen woven, and Lemon tees in cotton jersey.

To protect from the sun, a Camper Hat is an essencial and this one has been used every day since I sewed it. The hat is reversible, on one side I used pink soft canvas and on the other this tie dye woven from Katia Fabrics. I hacked the pattern a bit to make the brim wider and Joana loves it.

I think the Passport to Paradise Mini Backpack is the cutest bag that I've ever sewn. Really. Sewing bags is always a challenge for me (as I'm definitely more a garment sewist), and I took my time making this one, to make sure that it came out perfect, and it did. I used the same pink canvas from the hat paired with other fabrics and it made a gorgeous mini backpack. It has the perfect size to take a few essencials, a water bottle and the small purse included in the pattern.

The Cruise Culottes in denim blue lyocell from Katia look super cute. I LOVE these culottes and would like to have some for myself too. The pattern has different length options and sews up very quickly.

I also made a Rimini Dress in knee length with the waist tie. This pattern has a beautiful fit with princess seams, contoured back, faux wrap skirt, a lined bodice and a scooped back.

The Too Wild Dress looks beautiful made in this double gauze from Katia. The gathered skirt has a lot of volume and feels wonderful in this soft fabric.

We're planning to shop at Katia when we get back home!  And be sure to head over to Suco by Susana for lots more fun photos and information about their adventure.

Any guesses where we're headed next?  See you there!
