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: Wiggle Dress
Quick Description: This classic, tight fit pencil dress can be an everyday dress in a more casual knit, or a real show stopper in the floor length and a structured knit! It is drafted for a more stable knit like ponte roma, stretch velvet, stretch lace, liverpool, but you can also use a more casual double brushed polyester, thicker sweater knit, or a spandex blend french terry.
It has a center seam along the back from a close fit along your curves. Some lengths include a kick pleat for walking ease. You can put in a zipper to make it easier to get on and off or leave it off and wiggle in and out of it 😉 . The traditional set in sleeves and off the shoulder both come with short sleeve, half sleeve, 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve to make sure you can sew it up for all seasons. Lengths include a crop at natural waistline, top at full hip, just above knee, just below knee, midi/calf length and the stunning floor length that has a mermaid flare at the bottom for such a flattering silhouette.
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!
