Plenty of mornings I want wardrobe choices to be mindless. And what’s easier than a dress!
If you’re looking for a quick and stylish autumn or winter top, keep reading.
One of my 2018 goals was to sew a jacket with structure and a lining. I have made a couple of jackets out of knits, and one lined cape. This one was a case of learning one seam at a time.
In my work life, there is a single constant – professional garb. Trousers, button-down shirts, and jackets have been my wardrobe staples. But times have changed – workplaces are more casual. More than that, I’m learning what I want to wear and it isn’t what’s in my closet. So it’s time to work on workwear.
If you’ve read my blog in the past you know that I don’t like doing FBAs because I am too impatient to do all that tracing, cutting, taping. It seems like each Indie pattern designer has their own design sense, so while perusing patterns I finally took a serious look at Cashmerette and did some shopping.
In the past couple of weeks, I’ve somehow managed to acquire a lot of fabric. First there was a trip home to Canada, then I attended the annual conference for the American Sewing Guild, and finally, I was tempted by Fabric Mart Fabrics.
