clothes for Marie

Benesov, Czech R...






Inspired by some cute children clothes shops, I made these pieces for my daughter (and I´m working on few more..). I saw really nice clothes online recently that I thought I could buy, but instead decided to make similar ones :). The coat is made with Burda for kids 1992 with some modifications, as are the leggings, which look more like sweatpants. I use this old Burda for various child garments, and the patterns are huge… I´m glad I chose the smallest size for the coat and it´s still quite big :). The skirt is just a rectangle with elastic.


Material Notes

cotton, flannel for the coat, cotton for the skirt, knit cotton with 5% elastane for the leggings




Garment Type
Classic, Romantic
Cotton, Blends, Flannel

    hi janul! These new Marie clothes are fantastic! The coat looks soo professional with the lining! Must have taken you hours to make, but they are all so cute.

    By the way…I was at Praha for the first time, with my boy-friend and my son! I loved it there, great artistic atmosphere and very good meals and beer ;)))

      Oh, thanks a lot! The coat was actually very easy and quick to make :).
      I´m glad you enjoyed your stay in Praha! I didn´t know you had a son, I thought you´re very young :).

      hi Janul, I used to fake my age to get in at club burdastyle ;)))) I’m 38 and my son is 17. But at least my sewing skills look young. Best wishes!

      Lol! Not only your sewing skills look young :). My husband is almost 37, so you´re still pretty young to me :). Be well, Jana
