Sew Ready for Fall- Stylish Sewing with Stylish Fabrics

While the outside temps currently teeter on the brink of triple digits and the ac is running non-stop, I find myself dreaming of cooler weather, cozy sweaters and pumpkin EVERYTHING?!! It may only be August, but fall is right around the corner....

As I start to think about fall, I also start to think about transitioning my wardrobe. For me, that means layers and textures all while still being dress code appropriate (I must adhere to a strict dress code at work). 

The Patterns for Pirates Pirate Pencil skirt is a fun (and FREE, if you join their FB Group) pattern that is the perfect addition to my career wear. With minimal fabric and only three seams, it's a naturally quick sew. I won't bore you with too many of the pattern details because you can easily check it out AND sew it for yourself. Just know that's it's a simple, quick and fun sew that has a great, flattering fit! :-) 

For a point of reference, I sewed up a size XS, above the knee, high rise Patterns for Pirates Pirate Pencil skirt for this post. The Patterns for Pirates Pirate Pencil skirt is drafted for a 5'-5" tall woman. So, I did shorten the skirt by 2" in order to account for my height (I am 5'-0"... at least that's what my driver's license says... ;-).

I was fortunate enough to receive this Black Ponte Roma Shattered Pattern Fabric from Stylish Fabrics to sew up my Patterns for Pirates Pirate Pencil skirt. It's got a nice, thick hand with enough stretch to fit but still feel sturdy. It shimmers just a bit and the pattern definitely dresses up my average black/neutral wardrobe. THANK YOU, Stylish Fabrics! I know that I'll be perusing the vast selection available at Stylish Fabrics again!

Okay, are you ready to see the different ways I dressed up my Stylish Fabrics Patterns for Pirates Pirate Pencil skirt? Here goes....!


Office appropriate- just add pearls!

Dressing things down with a fun tee (Thanks, Out Loud by TSP!!), favorite denim jacket and my trusty pink Converse Chuck Taylors. ;-)

Its amazing how the right fabric can really make or break an outfit. And this was definitely the right fabric. I need to see if I can fit this fabric into my budget!
