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
Quick Summary: Maybe you can’t decide between the fitted look of leggings and the great pockets of joggers… Enter the perfect choice of LOGGERS 😉 the tight fit pant with pockets and cuffs! These loggers are tight fit, so still need a high percentage of stretch (we recommend 50% stretch with a little vertical- although you can use fabric with zero vertical they are more comfortable long wear with some vertical stretch). You can use performance fabric for a great pair of work out wear bottoms, french terry for a cozy pair, ponte for a thicker fabric, thermal for some jammies, cotton lycra, sweater knit and more! The short length make great lounge wear, work out wear, under dresses or swim cover up shorts!
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!
