I'm so excited to share this first look of my month long collaboration with TÉLIO today! If you're just joining in, I'm going to be working with TÉLIO the month of September to share some great Fall transitional wardrobe pieces. If it takes you a week or two to get into the next season of sewing like it does for me, I'm hoping this will be the jump start you need to get inspired. So lets get into this weeks project, the casual top.Read More
Hey everybody! I'm so excited to kick off this first week of my collaboration with TÉLIO! I am a big fan of their fabrics from the colors, prints, quality, I really love and enjoy working with them. In today's post, I'm sharing all about inspiration for a simple casual style top. I think having simple pull on tops are great for fall because one, it makes layering really easy, but when made with beautiful fabrics, they can stand alone and look fabulous with jeans, boots, skirts, you name it!Read More
Hey everybody! It's September 1st, and its time to kick off this Fall Collaboration with TÉLIO! I'm so excited about it! I don't know about you, but when seasons begin to change, I always get off to a slow start with sewing. Whether its overthinking what patterns I want to make, fabrics I want to use, or what I really need over just want, it takes me a couple weeks before I dive in!
I know I can't be the only one that gets off to slow start, so I figured what better way to really get the ball rolling on Fall sewing than to sew some staples. When I think about Fall I think about casual tee style tops (perfect for layering), lightweight jackets, classic button up shirts, and some versatile denim pants. Of course, your style and idea of Fall staples may be totally different from mine, and thats completely perfect (its what makes you....you!) but don't let that stop you from joining in this month!
I uploaded a video with details of this collaboration and what you can expect, but I wanted to go a little more into the post scheduling so you'll know whats happening on what days! On every Monday of this month, I will post read-to-wear inspiration, pattern options, and fabric options for the project of the week. On Wednesdays, I will post my finished look of the project, giving a review of the fabric and pattern. On Fridays, its sew along time! I'll upload a "sew with me" video to my YouTube Channel and we can sew the project together!
Sounds like fun?! I think so! And here is a schedule of the order of the projects......
- Week of September 3: Casual Top: Pattern- McCalls 7630
- Week of September 10: Denim Pants: Pattern- Simplicity 8701
- Week of September 17: Classic Button Up: Pattern- McCalls 7575
- Week of September 24: Utility Jacket: Pattern- Simplicity 8700
And in case you don't follow me on Instagram (you should :) here's a sneak peek of the first project! I won't get into how amazing this Rayon Voile Print is now, but y'all its amazing!
I can't wait to talk more about it in Mondays post!
For my dress, I wanted it to be in a beautiful fabric, but not a special occasion fabric such as a satin, or taffeta. While browsing Fabric.com, I came across this Telio Embroidered Red Chambray and thought it'd be perfect! Once the fabric came, I started to doubt it! I thought the print would over-power the dress a bit, but hey....only way to know is to sew! So thats what I did!Read More
