How We Wear It: Carolyn Pajamas

Indiesew | How We Wear It: Carolyn Pajamas by Closet Case

During  Shirt Month this year, I made a point to finally sew up the  Carolyn Pajamas by Closet Case Patterns. For years, I’ve needed an upgrade in my sleepwear. I love the classic look of the Carolyn Pajamas and since the top of this set is technically a button-up shirt, I thought  #shirtmonth was the best time to tackle it. In fact, the Carolyn Pajamas were the only button-up shirt I was able to . . .

How We Wear It: Palate Cleansing Knit Dresses

Indiesew Palette Cleansing Knit Project Panama Inari

March is such a weather and mood rollercoaster – particularly when you live in the North. Much like Spring break, a palate cleansing knit project is the perfect antidote to weather and attitude fluctuations.  A quick and easy knit project in a refreshing color provides a brilliant transition from winter to spring.

How We Wear It: Merlo Field Tee | How We Wear It: Merlo Field Tee by Sew House Seven

I did a happy dance when Peggy from Sew House Seven released the Merlo Field Tee . I love all things reminiscent of 70s fashion, and this design gives me major retro vibes with its contrast stripes along the shoulder and bicep. Paired with our  cupro jersey (available in four colors!), I knew I was going to get a lot of wear out of this top. The Merlo Field Tee is a  sporty knit tee with two . . .

How We Wear It: Fulton Sweater Blazer

Indiesew Style Post | Fulton Sweater Blazer by Alina Design Co

I have been excited (and a little impatient) to add the  Fulton Sweater Blazer to the Indiesew Pattern Shop . This stretch blazer design by Alina Design Co. is modern, beautifully cut, and so on-trend.  But I wanted to wait to add this pattern until we launched Winter Knits Week . Yesterday, we launched several new  ponte fabrics (perfect for this design) and I finally get to show off my Fulton! . . .

Joy Jacket with Fool's Paradise Poly Crepe Lining | Joy Jacket Sewing Pattern with Fool's Paradise LIning

Today we get to showcase my favorite piece from the Fool's Paradise photoshoot: the Joy Jacket by Chalk and Notch ! I knew that sewing a fun contrast lining using the  Fool's Paradise Light Poly Crepe would appeal to those who are a little more print wary. What I didn't expect was that this would quickly become my favorite thing to wear this fall. It's that good. If you're just tuning in, check . . .
