Monday Mood


You guys, it’s been a while. So much has happened since last January, but lets not get caught up in the details, unless you wanna talk about turtlenecks. That’s right, I can’t stop looking at them. If there is one thing that’s been on my mind recently, it’s turtlenecks. My number one guess? I suspect it’s the sub arctic wind chills we’ve been having in the Midwest. I can’t even look at my beloved rayon challis without piling on another layer of socks.

Let’s talk patterns. True Bias just released this little diddy and I am truly excited about it. Not only does it look super easy sew, BUT I’ve been wanting to remake that sleeveless turtleneck dress from CupcakesandCashmere¬†for a really long time. It’s so chic and put together. You could easily throw on a slouchy cardigan or get some structure with a blazer. Ugh. I love it.

I’ll just breeze through the next two because it’s 15 degrees outside and I want both of those patterns made in sweatshirt fleece, on me, right now. They’re like casual athletic, but super stylish. My favorite version, hands down, is from Closetcasepattern’s genius Heather Lou. THIS SWEATER is the business when it comes to combining fleece and elegance. They pose as sweatpants, but you’re holding a champagne flute. (But not like the people who show up to brunch on Sundays legit wearing sweatpants acting like they’re too busy to put on real pants. Let’s be real).

That’s all. I miss writing on here and I miss sewing. Until next time guys!
