When I told you guys I've been on a "winter white" kick, I truly meant it.
I've been eyeballing winter white for a few months now.
I didn't jump on the cape bandwagon last year but I sure got mine in this year lol
I plan on wearing mine to DEATH. You hear me?
Since I'm wearing this to church I wanted to wear a skirt with it. I made a pencil skirt using the same fabric. This fabric is FABULOUS. I'm always skeptical about purchasing fabrics that are 100% wool. I almost always buy a wool blend. This fabric is a wool felt. I've never worked with it before but it was a dream and it is SUPER warm. I love it. I kept rubbing on my skirt during church lol.
NEXT time you see me in this I want to wear it with all black everything lol. I may put it back on in a couple of days lol. I LOVE it!
The exposure on this picture is ALL wrong but I love it. I told Kayla her mistake is my favorite picture:
I hardly ever show the inside of my clothes. I don't know why because the inside always looks as good as the outside lol. I let my photograher take my pictures so she can get practice and I love this lining so I figured why not...
The inside is equally as fabulous as the outside. I have had this fabric for the longest. I think I got it from Vogue Fabrics when I was in Chicago a few years back. I love the unexpected color when you open the cape up.
I kept my accessories SUPER simple. This outfit was a perfect time to wear my hat. I've had it over a year and this was my first time wearing it. When I pulled out my winter items I promised myself I would wear it this year. I pulled out my favorite bag, and even though the prints don't match I still love them together. I added a little texture to my look with my nude fishnet tights. Works for me!
My shoes I LOVE. They are BCBG Maxazria Laleh
Let's not even talk about how much I'm loving gold right now lol.
Moving on lol
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: XS-M
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow. I didn't need them but I followed them for the sake of this review.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved this style. So on trend right now.
Fabric Used: Wool Felt (This was my first time working with this and it feels AMAZING)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I orginally cut view B because I loved that length while looking at the pattern. I didn't realize it would be so long on me. It stopped right over my knee and that was too long. I cut around 6 inches off so that it hit mid thigh. I loved that MUCH better on me. I also didn't add button holes. I was going to use a gold closure, but decided not to add anything.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't know if I'll make this again but I love it and I HIGHLY recommend this pattern. It was an easy sew project. That is exactly what I needed.
Conclusion: Great pattern, very well drafted. Pick it up if you like this style.
