I’m back for my third week of sharing what handmade pieces I wore over the last seven days. Tibeca of Sewing by Ti is hosting this blogging series all month long. Whatcha Wearin January, for me, is just a visual way to show how easy it is to incorporate handmade into your daily wears.
Let’s get to it!
Jan 15: Stripes and plaid are my jam. And when I mash them together, I love them even more. This is the Patterns for Pirates women’s henley (without the placket) and it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I think this has stuck around since October 2015…so it’s a keeper for sure.
Jan 16: This shirt is a fun one, only because it was an upcycle project of mine. I went shopping at Old Navy recently, looking for uniform clothes for Louis’ school, and instead I found this 2XL mens shirt for $3. Using this Nicole Miller fabric from JoAnn Fabrics, that I already had lying around, this was a cheap top to add to my closet! (You can see the original tee I upcycled from on my Instagram HERE.)
And of course, this is YET ANOTHER P4P Slimfit Raglan of mine. #cantstopwontstop
Jan 17: If you’ve known me and my sewing even the slightest big, you’d know that this is another M4M Mama Mya of mine. SORRY! I just like the fit of certain shirts so I keep making them. I blogged this shirt along with some peglegs in THIS post, if you want to see more pictures.
The fabric for this Mya is a thermal knit that I found on Fabric.com forever ago. I couldn’t find red on their site anymore, but this “earth grey” color would be a dream!
Jan 18: I switched it up ever so slightly with my choice in clothing. My pants and tee underneath are storebought (for shame! haha) but the cardigan is me-made. It’s Patterns for Pirates’ Cocoon Cardigan in a delicious buffalo plaid sweater knit. You can see more pictures from when we released the pattern on my blog HERE.
When I originally shared my link to the fabric, I think it was bought up by everyone in the Pirate group, haha. But Fabric.com does have a cute purple plaid HERE that would work for it!
Jan 19: This is such a fun top to wear and I keep forgetting to make myself more! Made for Mermaids’ Mama Blair is adorable…it’s a vneck raglan with a few different hem options, one of which is this cute ruffle hem. I made this one during testing and you can see more pictures HERE if you wanna.
Jan 20: Yep. Another Slimfit Raglan. I’ll be sharing more pictures of this cutie sometime next week when I get around to blogging it. This pizza fabric from RP Custom Fabrics is ten shades of awesome. (PS, it’s on pre-order right now in case you neeeeeed it for yourself.)
I paired the pizzas with THIS french terry from Fabric.com. It’s soft and stretchy and comfy. Love it.
Jan 21: You’re getting to see my just-out-of-the-shower-wet-hair look. Woot! Today I’m wearing anooooooother Slimfit Raglan. This one is made mostly from a jersey knit sheet that I bought from Target. Sometimes their sheet sets go on sale, are in cute prints (or this basic grey which is a good staple to keep around) and are cheaper than what you’d pay in yardage for similar fabric. It’s awesome for muslins, or for regular tops!
The sleeve fabric I paired it with isn’t available online anymore, but THIS would be super cute to use instead! (And the design on my shirt is available in my shop as an IRON-ON and a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD!)
