Layer Me Up

Pretty much from September until May I am dressed in layers whether it is a heavy sweater and vest or a tank top and cardigan I always have multiple layers on.  Add a cozy scarf and my new favourite hat and you pretty much have my ‘uniform’ for the fall and winter.

While most of my closet is now handmade I still have quite a few pieces that have been around for YEARS.  Most can be found in the form of a cardigan, which could be argued is the best option for a layer, they can pretty much go over anything.  Because I tend to get warm in all my layers I usually wear a tank top under my cardigans, no one likes to have bunchy shirts in the sleeves of your cardigan either.

Selfish Sewing Week Progress: Day 1

My Selfish Sewing Week is off to a wonderful start, and at this rate I am going to have a whole bunch of great new pieces for my wardrobe.

The main pattern that was on my MUST list for this week is the Evergreen Jacket from Hey June.  As I mentioned in my introduction post for this week, I had the pattern purchased within minutes of reading it was available.


I knew this was the perfect pattern for some grey sweatshirt fleece I had from Girl Charlee, not only is it going to be the perfect weight to give this jacket substance but it will be super cozy on cool spring nights.
