January BeeBox | Vinegar + Honey Co.

Feb 8, 2018

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been able to sew, photograph and share something on here.  Being back in an office, and working full time not-at-home has really changed up my ability to do this kind of stuff.  I’m four weeks in now…and I’m hoping that I’ll have it all figured out soon so I can do more of this.  I LOVE SEWING.  Clearly, haha.  So it’s something I never want to give up.

When the January BeeBox fabric arrived in the mail to me, it was love at first sight.  And touch.  It’s very clear that I need more french terry in my life.  It’s still cold outside and ft is soooooo cozy to wear.  Plus, this floral is gorgeous.  I was sold, sold, sold.

I’ve been trying to come up with ways to make all of my sewing from this point on be something that can be worn in an office setting.  Of course I’m going to be doing my loud, wacky print combos still…but I need to make sure I can get away with it during my 8-5 life as much as possible.  Even if it means simply throwing a blazer over it.

This top totally works in the office for me.  In fact, I’ve worn it in the office already.  And I’m trying to figure out how soon I can wear it again without anyone judging me for repeating outfits a bunch of times.  Because seriously, I adore it so much.

I used the P4P Women’s Henley and left the placket off, like I usually do when I just want to whip a shirt up.  This was my first in-set sleeve pattern that I fell in love with.  The fit is perfect…fitted in the bust, but body skimming and not form fitted.  Considering how much I’ve turned into a hibernating bear this winter, and all of the beer and cheese I’ve consumed (seriously) since the holiday season hit, it doesn’t make me feel super self conscious about my non-trim size.

Maybe VHCO needs to send me some athletic fabric so I get inspired to start moving again.  Because this french terry just makes me want to cuddle.
