I think the best outfits are when you don’t think about any fashion ‘rules’ and just grab things you want to wear. Today I wanted to wear something different than I would normally ever wear and it just happened to be two completely different patterns, stripes and gingham, forcing me to do some pattern mixing like a boss! And really they are both blue so it totally works!
Today I am teaming up with Indiesew who last week launched a curated collection of 6 indie patterns that be mixed and matched to create a fall wardrobe. These pieces are all amazing in their own right but when paired together you really are set for the fall and beyond. Who doesn’t love a great collection of patterns, especially patterns that can all work together giving you so many different options.
Fall is by far hands down my favourite season of the year. I absolutely love the crisp air and the falling leaves and I may be partial but I am pretty sure that there is no better place to be than the Pacific Northwest in the fall.
When Haley of Welcome to the Mouse House released The Julia Cardigan at the beginning of December I snatched it up that day. I knew it needed to be a part of my wardrobe in all of the different options.
As usual life got busy and I never got around to making one for myself. I finally remedied that last week and the finished product was just as amazing as I knew it would be back in December when I bought the pattern. How is it possible that I waited this long to actually sit down and sew the pattern that ended up taking less than an hour to do from start to finish.
