A very special edition of the Kids’ Clothes Belgian Style series this week, as we have our first and only Belgian guest! I really wanted to have one compatriot as a participant, and Emma & Mona was an obvious choice. I don’t think there is one Belgian sewing blogger who is more popular or prolific than Griet. While Griet is a part-time teacher and a mother of two cute twins (named Emma and Mona, yes, good guess, Sherlock!) she also finds the time to post a new cute outfit several times a week. In a magazine article, Griet once revealed that she sewed 1400 pieces in two-and-a-half years. That’s right, fourteen-hundred. No, American readers, you do need to convert that from the metric system to your imperial system or whatever – Griet actually sewed 1400 pieces of clothing in two-and-a-half years.
On top of that, Griet is also a co-author of a beautiful sewing book (in Dutch), and a very talented photographer. Griet blogs in Dutch, but her photography is so beautiful that I bet most of you non-Dutch speakers couldn’t care less what she writes, as you are too busy swooning over her stunning pictures anyway. If you like the Belgian style, make sure to visit Griet’s blog, because Emma and Mona is all about fun, colorful and stylish children’s clothing.
Anyway, without any further ado: Here’s Griet!
