All November long, we are looking to “Fall Into Fashion” with some sewing and style fun. As the weather cools down, fashion heats up! This time of year can provide some of the best opportunities for styling yourself.
Have you ever heard the term “capsule wardrobe”? It is the practice of editing your wardrobe down to your favorite clothes (aka the items that fit your fashion sense, your body, and your lifestyle right now), remixing them regularly, and shopping/sewing less often and more intentionally.
Here at Patterns for Pirates headquarters, we thought it would be so fun to show you how to do this with your handmade wardrobe! We hired some incredible sewists from the Pirate Community and asked them to sew a pattern from our collection, and then show you how to get more wearability out of it. They are showing up each day to remix a different P4P pattern AND the pattern of the day will be on sale for that 24-hour period. So fun, right?
TODAY’S FEATURED PATTERN
Pattern: The Basic Tee – Women’s
Quick Summary: Everyone needs a great fitting basic tee in their tool belt! This tee is flattering with a fitted bust and full hip, and semi-fitted waist. It comes with crew, V neck and scoop neckline options, so you can pick your favorite or mix them up for variety! The sleeve lengths include short, 3/4, and long with or without cuffs so you can make them year round. The snug fit sleeve is perfect for layering under cardigans, vests, etc. You can choose from crop, shirt, tunic, or dress length. The fit works great with a wide variety of knits, light to medium weight with moderate stretch.
