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: Go To Jacket – Women’s
Quick Summary: The Go To Jacket is the perfect wardrobe staple for fall and spring weather! You can make it out of a lighter weight fabric for those days you just need a bit of coverage or make it from a heavier, warmer fabric like fleece to keep you from being chilly! It includes a bomber neckband and 3 piece hood for two drastically different looks as well as two pocket options- kanga pockets and inseam pockets. You can pick from the longer booty covering tunic length or the more traditional shirt length. You can hem your long sleeves, cuff them or add awesome thumbhole cuffs too! And don’t worry, these thumbholes wont look silly or gape open if you’re not wearing them on your thumb either- so enjoy them on or off all day long
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!
