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: Cocoon Cardigan
Quick Summary: This is a loose, slouchy fit through waist, but skims bust and hips for a flattering but comfortable silhouette. Sleeves are a dolman style and lower sleeve is a slimmer fit, but still has a bit of ease to allow for layering under comfortably.
The cocoon, circular shape is perfectly on trend and easy to dress up or down! This pattern pairs amazing with a sweater knit, rayon spandex, rayon blend french terry or other knit fabric with a softer drape.
It comes with almost endless options! Cropped looks great with a dress, tunic looks great with jeans or leggings. They both include short and tall bands. The tall bands give a shawl collar effect. Sleeve lengths include short (both hemmed and banded), 3/4, long (hemmed, short or tall banded). We also added 2 different pocket styles! Inseam or patch pockets finish off this cardigan for the perfect staple piece in your closet!
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!
