It’s a Vintage Lace Christmas!

Aug 12, 2017

My friends over at Vintage Lace are running a Holiday/Winter round of fabulous fabrics and they sent me a few to play with.  Bonus on this round for me was that I actually designed one of the prints (offered in two colorways) that is available in this round.  I’m pretty sure there’s nothing more fun than sewing something that you’ve made yourself!!

Of course I’m going to share the fabrics that I designed with you first!!

I made the Fair Isle print in two different colorways.  I wanted one that was uuber Christmasy and one that could be worn all winter long…and I’m so glad that I did.  Because I love both of them.  The green/red one is going to be AMAZING to rock for the whole month of December.  Can’t wait.

I made my strike into a SlimFit Raglan (with an adjusted neckline) and then printed one of my Fair Isle Sewing Machine designs onto the front to complete the look.

The purple colorway became a pair of Peg Legs.  Because Momma needs more comfy pants to wear around the house and these are perfect.  I have another yard of the purple, so I plan on making a sweatshirt or something out of that.  But I couldn’t resist some Pegs.

I also paired it with a Sweet Tee, in alllllmost the same color as the teal/blues in the fair isle print.  And put another one of my vinyl designs on the front to make it one big dorky sewing outfit.  It’s not even close to winter but I’ve totally rocked this outfit a million times at this point.  Can’t help it.  I love purple and sewing too much to let it be.

Next up is the awesome Nordic Trees print that they have available!  This is proof that men can have fun, themed shirts too.  And it’s not so over the top that you’re like “what was she thinking when she made that for her husband??”  I mean, maybe you’re thinking that.  But I really like this shirt for Bennett.  Plus, it’ll be excellent for the Christmas (W)Rap party that we host every year.

I downplayed the print a little by giving him a solid bodice on his Jerry Raglan.  It helped to make this less loud and more “Bennett”, even for a themed shirt.

For Louis, I’m never worried about making his shirts too loud.  He loves prints and fun shirts to wear.  And the Dylan Tee is perfect for mixing prints.  So I used a little bit of the Nordic Trees and paired it with the Blake Plaid for the cutest little shirt.

Finally, my last top…and quite possibly my favorite.  It was a combo of the Noel Floral and the Blake Plaid.  Mixing plaids and florals are probably not what the girls were thinking when they sent me these fabrics but it spoke to me.  Mostly because I love plaid and I wanted to incorporate it any way that I could in my own outfit.  But also because the colors match up perfectly and I feel like it’s so perfect together.

This top is a combo of a couple of patterns.  I used the Mama Cassie for the bodice and high-low peplum.  And I mashed the Mama Blair sleeves onto it…and then adjusted the neck for just a scoop neckline, rather than a vneck.  Cute, right?
