Hey all! I’m back today with a little sewing for me, woo hoo! And both of my items are out of knit fabric…yay for pajama like comfort! Indiesew has bundled up another great group of patterns just in time for the winter weather. You may remember when they had their Fall collection that I blogged about here. Well it’s time for the Indiesew Winter Collection!
Indiesew has done it again with five great patterns all bundled together, that all work so well together. The Winter Collection contains the Out and About Dress, Pleated Pencil Skirt, Josephenie Top, Union St. Tee, and the Leather Accent Pouch. I’m showing you two of those patterns, the pencil skirt and the tee (both of which I have sewn before and love)!
So let me tell you first about the Union St. Tee. Want to know how many times I’ve made this pattern? This is my fifth time. And this pattern is perfect! I’ve blogged about my first three makes here (one of which was a rash guard). My fourth union st. tee I never blogged about, and here is number five! I think it’s safe to say that this pattern is good! It fits better than any store bought t shirt I own and my many union st. tees are in heavy rotation in my closet!
For this t shirt I grabbed a men’s large t shirt from the thrift store for 50 cents. (I have no idea what the t shirt logo is about, it says MOVE the faith journey, but I love the colors.) I simply just cut up the thrifted shirt, fit the tee pattern on top and cut it out.
And now the pleated pencil skirt. I’ve made this one before also, out of coral lace last time. I wanted something a little more every day wearable, so I sewed this skirt out of knit fabric. I had grabbed a yard of red ponte knit from the Jo Ann’s remnant bin a couple months ago, and that was plenty of fabric to sew up this pencil skirt. I followed Delia’s tutorial on how to turn her pattern into a knit pencil skirt! And again I love it! Both of these outfits are definitely my type of every day clothes!
Interested in buying the Winter Collection bundle? These patterns all grouped together save you 15% off the pattern price, and they are all so so good!
P.S. Wondering why I’m wearing a skirt and t shirt for my winter collection? This is winter…Florida style!
