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: Sporty Piko
Quick Summary: Warning, if you start sewing this pattern you may find it very difficult to ever stop!!! The options including in this pattern can give you such a variety of looks you will want multiples of each style! You might find yourself asking, “How many Sporty Pikos is too many?” My personal answer, “You can’t have too many!!” Options include four lengths: cropped hemmed, cropped with drawstring, shirt banded and curved tunic. The cropped is perfect to pair with those trendy high waisted bottoms! You don’t even have to worry about perfecting that front tuck, it’s already the perfect flattering length for you. You can choose from curved hemline or banded for when you need a longer style top. Both have a very loose, relaxed, even oversized fit depending on fabric choice.
This pattern is on sale only thru tonight, at 11:59pm CST. If you’ve had your eye on it, don’t wait to jump on the deal!
