A sleeveless cheyenne is where it’s at!
After a very successful first attempt at the Cheyenne pattern from Hey June I was confident that the popover version of the pattern would be all kinds of amazing. With 3 yards of this ocean blue Japanese chambray from Indiesew it absolutely had to be made this weekend. There was no way I was putting this project off any longer.
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.
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.
