Magazine Review – Cucito Spring 2014

May 5, 2014

Today we are going to take a look at the Spring Issue of Cucito  2014. This issue will satisfy anyone who loves sailor suits. Especially adorable on children!


The sailor tops come in boys, girls and even an adult version for Mom! (in S,M,L sizes)

There are also patterns for bottoms that will go well with the sailor blouse.


Skirts for the girls,


Pants for the boys.


There is a detailed step by step sewing lesson for the making of the pants, which is a simple elastic waistband pants with side pockets.


In this issue’s regular feature for older girls (130-150cm), there are some pretty spring blouses, tweed shorts,


and a versatile Zip up all-in-one pattern which comes in two different variations. The dress variation (red) and the one-piece shorts romper (in black)


There is also a special occasion formal dress segment for girls.


More casual wear – The blouse on the left is actually similar to the blouse made in the older girls section, and the dress on the left is a variation of the same pattern. That fabric on the right is so familiar, I’ve actually seen it at Spotlight. It is a Japanese cotton lawn that costs about $18/m (approx USD14.4/m). It’s scary how expensive fabric is here.


More pants for the boys, I wanted to show you this one because I really like the details on the short version – cuffed hem, box pleat pockets and button details.



And now, some projects for the babies. More sailor suits. The pants are so cute! 🙂



For the girls, the outfit comes with a skirt that has a front pleat and contrast lining. This skirt pattern comes with full color step by step photographs.


Other than clothing projects, there are also patterns for accessories, like this fabric growth chart shaped in a giraffe.



There is also a special feature for embroidery. A 5 page full color special with step by step photos on the different stitches, techniques and patterns you will need to personalize your sewing creations.


Ideas for using fabric scraps – making hair accessories.


Easy and cute stuff to make for kids.


 2 actual size pattern sheets included.
