As promised, here is Part of my Sew September collection. I made 5 garments and was able to pair them with each other to make a mini wardrobe collection for Fall/Winter. The first set I made was Vogue 1835, you can find the blog post here. The top and the leggings were an easy sew and a must make it again pattern. Great for running errands or dress it up with the right pair of shoes and accessories.
Piece #3, The Idra Hoodie Dress from Mood Sewciety. It is classified as a hoodie dress, but it wasn’t long enough for me to wear as a dress, so I made as a top. I am sure if I would have measured and extended the torso portion it would have been a great dress. I am seeing a lot of hoodie dress with thigh high boots, in the fashion world and I just love the look. This another easy sew and the instructions were straight forward and easy to follow.
Piece #4 Simplicity 8424 Leggings – If I had to pick this would be my favorite piece from this collection. It could have something to do with this fabulous fabric I used. The fabric is a knit that I have had in my stash for over 4 years, I rescued it from the fabric store and kept it on the shelf. I had no idea what I was going to make with the fabric when I purchased it, but when I saw this leggings pattern it was perfect. These leggings are versatile as well. They can be worn with boots or booties, sneakers or flats, a t-shirt or a sweater, the outfits are endless.
Piece #5 – Simplicity 8177 Misses’ Top Leopard Animal print, you can’t go wrong with animals matched with solids. I love animal prints to add to the simplicity of an all solid color outfit, for example the all black vogue outfit. This top can be worn with so many different bottoms, the possibilities are endless. I styled it with flats , but you can wear boots, flat sneakers, or even sandals to complete the look.
Here are all the pieces together as different outfits.
