I’m so excited to be apart of another Blog Tour, this time for Indie Sew, in collaboration with Seamly! Each season, Indie Sew comes out with a great fabric bundle. For their summer collection, they’ve teamed up with Seamly and created patterns based off of their ready wear items. There’s three great basics in the collection: the Vallynne Tank, Basic Tee, and the Wrapped Cardigan
For the tour, I made a Basic Tee in a light grey knit and the Wrapped Cardigan in an AGF knit by April Rhodes. Indie Sew has a whole blog post about which fabrics to use for these patterns.
First up, my Wrapped Cardigan:
You guys, I’m obsessed. Along with my Wrapped Cardigan, I’m wearing my Basic Tee and Birkin Flares. My tassel necklace is from Purpose Jewelry.
The Wrapped Cardigan is a quick make, and it’s so fun to wear! I just love it. I’m excited to bring it along all summer for those late nights outside, and I’ll be wearing this well into the Fall and Winter too. There’s also a sleeveless version that is adorable layered over a tee or tank. It’s such a versatile pattern, great for every season.
Next, the Basic Tee:
My tassel bracelet is also from Purpose Jewelry.
Again, I’m obsessed. This is my favorite knit tee I’ve made so far. I usually stay away from sewing basics, but now I’m realizing that they are a great addition to my wardrobe. I’ve worn this tee dressed up with a skirt for church, and dressed down with skinny jeans and sandals for running errands. Sometimes I even sleep in it. It’s the best. I’m planning on making more when I can find some time. I think it would be cool with two different colors: one for the shirt, and one for the sleeves, pocket and neck band…
Make sure to follow along with the blog tour to get some great ideas for using this new pattern collection!
