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: Boho Babydoll
Quick Summary: The Boho Babydoll is a great throw on style that says I’m put together, on trend, but you’re also so comfortable! It is drafted for thinner knits with a soft drape like rayon spandex, ITY, triblend jerseys, sweater knits etc. There is enough gathering along the seamline to give interest without adding inches to your silhoutte. The seamline between bodice and skirt is empire at front center and curves down to natural waist in the back. This on trend look will combine the tummy hiding empire without completely hiding your natural waist curve in the back. You can wear it and not worry about sucking in all day, but not feel frumpy with the bust being slighty fitted.
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!
