Fall into Sewing: Look number 2!

It’s my second day posting on this tour and I am super excited to share with you how I used the amazing jacket I made earlier in the week and layered it with a new outfit! You can find my earlier post HERE.
This time I made the brand new Collared Shirt Pattern that recently released. I would have loved to make the dress for me but with it being the week of Halloween I have been in a last minute rush and was not able to get to the store to get me fabrics for my own, so of course Sweet Pea lucked out. In my previous post, I paired the Phresh Blazer with a tshirt and jeans look that completed a look that Sweet Pea wanted. In this post, I really wanted to accomplish a fun almost Harry Potter school uniform look with layers and textures and knew that the newly released pattern would be the perfect dress for the look I was creating.
Features:
  • Sizing in 1- 14y
  • Shirt or Dress lengths
  • Suitable for all genders
  • 2 shoulder widths (THIS PATTERN INCLUDES A WIDE SHOULDER ADJUSTMENT)
  • collar and collar stand
  • Inseam pockets
  • Chest pocket
  • 4 sleeve lengths- cap, short. 3/4, long
  • optional cuff on the long sleeve
The back yoke allows for fun details. Sweet Pea opted for a black yoke, placket and collar to match the skirt portion.

Model mesurements:

  • Chest: 22
  • Waist: 20
  • Hip: 20
  • Height: 41.5

Size made 5t with a 6t bodice length because Sweet Pea’s girth is very long.

This pattern features really great instructions for the placket, so if you are afraid of that you don’t have to be. Also you can swap out snaps if buttons aren’t something you enjoy (or in my case snaps are easier for Sweet Pea to close.)

Starting on the placket
Enclosed shoulder seams

I feel like we achieved the perfect vision with being able to layer the jacket and let it get 2 completely different looks—- what do you think?

Oh and the Harry Potter fabric, for those interested, is a current preorder from Cosmic Fabric Creations and they have all the houses available. The in hand feel of this woven has a slight stretch and lovely drape. The white and black were thrifted from my stash.
