Can you believe that it’s already March, which means it is almost St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of the upcoming green-clad holiday, I decided to blog one of my favorite dresses from summer 2017 – which just so happens to be one of the few green items in my closet! I love the color green, and I’ve always liked the way it looks with my skin tone, but as I look through my me-made wardrobe it seems that it just hasn’t been a color I’ve been extremely drawn to when purchasing fabric. This March, I think I’ll focus on changing that!
Welcome to Month 3 of Project Sew My Style! This month, we will be focusing on the Kalle pattern by Closet Case Patterns. This pattern comes with a few different options for length, collar, placket, pockets, and back pleat detail – it’s a choose your own adventure garment! I’ll be leading this month, so today, I’ve rounded up a few inspiration photos and fabric suggestions that have caught my eye as I began planning out my own project. Take a look, and let me know what you’ll be using to make your Kalle!
February is coming to a close, which means it is time for all of us to reveal our awesome outerwear! This month, the Sew My Style project had two awesome options – the beautiful, newly released Rumana Coat from By Hand London, and the super versatile Estelle Ponte Jacket by Style Arc Patterns. Although I had been so excited and gearing up for the Rumana, when we chose to add in the Estelle, I was over the moon. See how my February Sew My Style project turned out!
I’m a self-admitted selfish sewist. I didn’t think anyone was all that concerned with this, but I recently found out that my husband was feeling a little bummed that I hadn’t made something for him to show off in. I found it so endearing that he actually wanted something handmade, so I’ve wanted to find the perfect something to make him. I took my first dive into men’s sewing with the Thread Theory Strathcona Henley… And I loved it!
