f.o. : patterned outfit # many.

I wasn’t lying when I said the pandemic gave me a strong desire to add prints to my wardrobe–and time. Time at home. Time with my sewing machine (much needed). I made a bunch of 100 Acts of Sewing pants no. 1 and shirt no. 2 to get me in the clothes making groove (great patterns for beginners with some nice details like bias tape neckline, for example).

This set I sewed up using Cotton + Steel Alexia Abegg Moonrise, which I’ve had laying around for a long while. Any fabric design Alexa does is something I want, and this was a great outfit for those super warm early Fall days. And of course, matching bandana for my bestest friend, Jackie dog (he’s less than thrilled to sit in my lap for photos, however) and mandatory matching mask for safety at work with the kids (pattern is from Gather Here in Cambridge, my favorite shop).

What should I make next? I’m not versed enough in winter sews, which stinks because it makes me less motivated to sit at my machine. But I do have some amazing chambray so I think I’ll try for a pair of chambray pants with pockets.
