I have my final piece of my fall module to show you today and it may be my favorite! To see everything I’ve made as a part of this collection, click here!
The idea for this top absolutely started with this amazing Atelier Brunette Autumn Posey Rayon Dobby in Chestnut. I’ve had my eye on it for months and when I was planning this module, decided this was the print I wanted to go with. In working through The Conscious Closet (you can see my whole series on the book here!) I realized that I am more of a solids gal. I like color and playing around with color mixing, but find I wear less prints in general. So when I kept thinking about this fabric, I knew it was one worth throwing in the mix!
I am absolutely loving the seventies fashion inspiration right now and this pattern B6378 felt like a modern take on a seventies blouse. I made version B in a size 12 and it has turned out to be one of my best made garments yet. The finishes are beautiful and the fit is pretty perfect. I didn’t make any alterations and I found the instructions and construction of the neck facing and neck tie to be really well done.
I’ve paired it here with my pink Pietra pants. I don’t know if this is too much pink, but I kind of dig these two pieces together and feel like Harry Styles might approve of this outfit!
I love that I was able to fall in love with a print and imagine it made up as something lovely and then create exactly what I wanted. Sometimes sewing really does feel like magic.
