Winter has officially hit Seattle and I knew a vest would be a perfect layer to get me through these cold months. While I love a plaid vest or even a down vest, sometimes you want something that is a little bit more of an elevated look. Let me introduce you to my newest free pattern, the Bell Town Vest.
One of my favourite things to do is take one of my patterns and make a couple changes to get something new. The Carkeek that I am sharing with you today is really filling a hole in my wardrobe, lightweight layer for cool summer evenings. And with just a couple changes to the pattern as written you have what I am calling my Carkeek remix.
As you hopefully already know, the Carkeek dress is a free pattern available in 4 sizes that is available for download here.
I am so excited to be joining Melissa of Melly Sews for her 5th Annual 30 Days of Sundresses. This series is always so much fun to follow along with because you never know what everyone is going to share.
With the temperatures rising here in Seattle I knew this was the perfect opportunity to draft a relaxed fit dress that could be worn dressed up or casual. I am all about relaxed and flowy so a dolman style shift dress seemed right up my alley. It was from these ideas that I came up with my newest pattern, Carkeek, which is also a free pattern for all of you!
