I like to keep things simple in my wardrobe because honestly I rarely wear things that are much more than jeans and a tee shirt. Working at home and living the mom life means I generally grab for comfort but as I have always said you don’t have to sacrifice style when choosing comfort. A woven tank is my newest obsession, it feels like a dressed up version of just a simple knit tank and is the perfect layering piece as we head into fall.
I have a closet full of Leschi tops and dresses. For awhile there it is all I was sewing because every fabric just seemed to go perfectly with the pattern. Usually I either lengthen it into a dress or tunic or leave the sleeves off, but this time I wanted to try remixing it into a long sleeve dress. I had this picture in my head of a simple elastic through the wrist to give the sleeves a bit of volume and the end result is exactly like I pictured.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I love to sew my patterns in as many different fabrics as possible. No one wants to buy a pattern that is limited to one fabric, or at least I definitely do not. But what I also want to show is that you will get a different look depending on the fabric you choose. Magnuson is the perfect example of this which you will see in the 3 versions I sewed. So if you are unsure of whether Magnuson is even your style or if you aren’t sure which fabric to use, let me help you choose fabric for your Magnuson vest.
