It’s time for fall, and you know what that means: Falling leaves, falling apples, and falling temperatures!!! It’s the PERFECT time to sew up some outerwear inspired by this Winter Wear Designs Outerwear Blog Tour!!

I decided that I NEEDED to sew up Winter Wear Designs’ newest pattern, the
Fashionista Jean Jacket. It has a great clean scooped neckline, a gorgeous placket, and a banded bottom, meant to look great with any number of layered garments!!

I used a brocade woven fabric from http://www.Seweird.com to sew up my Fashionista, and chose the welt pocket option. There is also a side pocket option for this awesome jacket.

With awesome touches like having a front and back yoke and cuffed sleeves, the Fashionista will be your go-to for seasonal transition pieces and miles of style!

OMeGa!! Nailed it! A Stop on the Winter Wear Designs Hack-a-Thon Blog Tour

September is a month of fresh starts for so many at school and a time of renewal as we head into another fall season. What a perfect time to make what we have “new” again by hacking our available pattern resources into all new garments?

I love scouring Pinterest for new ideas, and I found a tank top that I Really liked the look of. I loved the lace yoke to add that special little something.

Here is my inspo pic:

I mean, how cute is that?! Plus, it’s casual enough that I can wear it almost anywhere. I looked through my patterns, and found my Winter Wear Designs (aff) Omega Top and Tunic For Women Sizes xxs-XXXL. I decided to use some 5″ black lace that I had, which provided a nice overlay for the yoke. I am super in love with my jacked Omega!

Heading Back To School in Winter Wear Designs, a Stop on the B2S Blog Tour

40086239_10217612942615324_8102580894826496000_o

It’s that time of year again! It’s time to head back to school. Whether you are a student, educator, or administrator, you always want to look your best doing it! Luckily, Winter Wear Designs (aff) has got your back!! Their amazing patterns will have you looking stylish, no matter your age!

I was lucky enough to join in the Back 2 School Blog Tour with some AMAZING bloggers, who are talented sewists as well! We each set out with the goal of creating a mini capsule for differing back to school needs, so please make sure to visit all of the stops along this blog tour to be able to get inspired by the great and beautiful creations that have been made using Winter Wear Designs’ pdf patterns!

I sewed up the Aviator Pants for Women in Sizes XXS-XXXL (aff) and the Hepburn Henley for Women in Sizes 00-22 (aff) from the Back to School Bundle for Teens and Women (aff). I also sewed up the Trendy Tank (aff), a pattern that is free with coupon code, and the Read Deal Jeans for Women, in Sizes XXS-XXL (aff) in the capri length for this change of season, as we head into autumn.

Real Deal Capri length Jeans with Hepburn Henley with short sleeves…

As I was trying to create a capsule for back to school looks, I chose pieces that were versatile so that you can mix and match and never have your wardrobe go stale or to be unprepared for a situation. I made the Aviator pants with a faux snakeskin velvet (from Mily Mae Fabrics) so that students or faculty could go to class in them or throw them on for dinner and a night on the town. I chose to have front pockets, but not the optional cargo pockets or back welt pockets, as I was going for a more trouser/dress pants kind of feel. I also went with a waistband hack for them, as I had this gorgeous glittery waistband elastic from Knitpop (aff). This glitter allows me to not only feel pretty, but also SO comfy all day long.

With the Hepburn Henleys, I sewed one up with longer sleeves in DBP and RS (the white and yellow one with daisies from Love Adore Knits), and my other one in Rose Baroque crushed velvet from Mily Mae Fabrics.

As you can see with a couple of accessories and changing from the Real Deal Jeans to the Aviators sewn up in a luxe fabric like velvet or suede, and the Hepburn Henley sewn up in fabrics like velvet, suede, silk, brushed hacci, or satin, you look can go from classroom to date night in a flash.

I also sewed up a Trendy Tank (aff) in Twinkle Teal velvet from Mily Mae Fabrics and finished my edges with silver fold over elastic (FOE) for a fun look under a blazer (Phresh blazer anyone?) or cardi (Twin Peaks Cardi perfection!) or on its own for a fun night on the town.

As you can see, the options are endless and are limited only by your imagination (OK OK, and maybe the available budget. hahaha) Grabbing the Back to School Bundle for Teens and Women (aff) will have you set with SO many possible looks for your own back to school capsule for one low price.
