Holiday Sewing Inspiration
Posted on 01 November 2018
I don't know about you, but we're already getting invitations in the mail for upcoming holiday parties and are making plans for family dinners to celebrate the festivities. This year has been flying by and the holidays are going to be here before we know it! Time to start on some serious sparkly sewing (say that five times fast).
We've rounded up some inspiration and pattern possibilities here on the blog, but if you're looking for more ideas, check out our Pinterest board!
There's nothing that screams holiday more than sequins! Our Geometric Embroidered Sequin Velvet is stunning on its own, but would make a show-stopping outfit.
Because of intricate detailing in the fabric, we recommend pairing it with a relatively simple and straightforward pattern. Lengthening the Scout Tee into a dress would be perfect for last minute parties! For some sparkly bottoms, you could try the Pacific Leggings - how cute would they be with a big chunky sweater?!
Our Shimmer Gabardine is perfect for a little bit of subtle holiday spirit. For pieces that you'll be able to wear more than once, try the Willow Tank. The dress version would be perfect on its own, or pair the tank version with the Cleo Skirt for a 2-piece faux romper look.
If you're feeling adventurous, this fabric would make an amazing bustier. Lengthen the Esplanade Bra into a bustier-style top and layer under a blouse or jacket for a sexy, yet tailored look.
The Crushed Stretch Velvet may be one of the most versatile fabrics we have in this collection! From wrap dresses like the Orchid Dress, to the oversized Lou Box Dress, to the Hudson Pants, this fabric is perfect to dress up any look.
We are so excited to offer not one, not two, but three gorgeous silks in our holiday collection! Not only can these silks be dressy enough for holiday parties, but can also create gorgeous and refined pieces for year-round wear.
The Ogden Cami is a perfect blank canvas to let the silk shine on its own as a statement piece. For a more vintage-inspired look, the Mito Cami/Dress pattern would look elegant and timeless. For a truly show-stopping dress, try the Magnolia Dress! The perfect #sewfrosting match.
For a bold holiday look, make a statement piece with our Gold Floral Brocade. Because this fabric has a little more structure, it's perfect to pair with patterns that create shape and volume. We'd pair it with the Chardon Skirt or Belladone Dress. There's no way this won't be a standout outfit!
