Fabric for Pirates: October 2020 Reveal (Part II)

Oct 22, 2020

I’ve got a second round of fabric reveals for you, for the Patterns for Pirates’ fabric subscription service: FABRIC for Pirates!  And I’m just as excited about this fabric as I was the first.  No joke.  Both fabrics are the same base, a deliciously soft and stretch French Terry. (Fabric Content: 90% POLY 7% RAYON 3% SPANDEX) and both are totally up my alley, in color, print and fabric type!

Louis was another lucky recipient of this month’s fabric.  We are coming into cooler weather and he’s legitimately outgrown all of his lounge/sleepwear from last year.  Honestly, this kid is growing at such an incredible rate lately that it’s difficult to keep up with!  His shirts are all practically belly shirts, and his pants are all making him look like he’s ready for high waters.  Whew.

In that event, I thought it’d be perfect to give him some new Baby Bear Joggers.  The french terry fabric is perfect for this application, and they’re super cozy to wear as well.  Louis is like me, in the event that we aren’t rocking loungewear too often.  So you won’t really find us outside of the house, or anytime that isn’t right before bedtime, in non-structured pants.  However, we still like having them to wear to bed — and on those super random days that we are having a “comfy clothes day” at home.

I made him the slat pocket, elastic waistband version, and I just gave a basic hem to the ankle portion.  Typically I do the cuffed version in his joggers but I thought it might look better leaving it off this time.  I think they turned out super cute.  Especially paired with the (placketless) Yo Ho Henley that he’s got on in these photos as well.

I made myself a Flutter Wrap!  Stick with me here on this.  Because clearly what I’m wearing isn’t fluttering or wrapping.  I’ll tell you what I did to it.

First, instead of having the true wrap design, I ended up sewing the side seams together completely.  And then I turned it around and wore it backwards so the neckline was high in the front and it has the crossover in the back.

Not too extreme.  But it is an obvious change of design and style when it’s worn!

I actually love it, because now I can wear it to work without worrying about the ladies giving too much of a show to my coworkers.  Ha.  Nobody wants that.  It still has a sassy element to it with the crossover being in the back too — because I’ve got a little more back showing than a typical top.  However, it’s not so much that it’s inappropriate.

For me, it’s pure love.  I actually have another top in the same distressed star design, but a different fabric base and color…and I wear it ALL THE TIME.  So I’m excited to have another one, but in a more fall/winter weather fabric.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.  What would you have made with this fabric?
