Fall Into Fashion with Patterns for Pirates

Nov 9, 2020

Judy had the. best. idea. ever.  She thought it would be super fun to take different sewists from our community and ask them to sew up one item with a P4P pattern — and show (at least) three different ways to style it, using the items they already had in their closets.

I assembled the team and we were off!  It has been such an incredible amount of fun, and I’m excited to be sharing my portion of the journey.

I used the Hepburn Top + Dress pattern, and made the turtle neck, 3/4 length sleeve, top length version.  Normally I’m not a gal who likes to wear higher necklines, but this leopard print really sang to me and it needed to happen. NEEDED to, y’all!

While I don’t consider myself stylish, I had a ton of fun putting together these looks.  This is my version of going from work, to casual, to date night — all by changing what I’m wearing with one single top.  Super versatile, wouldn’t you agree?

For my “work” look, I paired my leopard Hepburn top with a knit blazer and some black ponte skinnies, as well as my trusty black ballet flats.  I’m a girl all about comfort and while at work, I’m constantly up and down and around the office…pretending to be the IT department, cleaning and reorganizing things, harassing people, you know the drill.  So comfy is key for me.  (I mean, but when isn’t it?)

My second and much more casual version involved some skinny jeans and my new rainboots.  If you’re wondering why you keep seeing these boots in photos of me, it’s because I’m OVER THE FREAKING MOON about finding a pair of this style boots that actually fit my giant calves.  If you’re in the market for some wide calf rain boots, I highly recommend these on Amazon.

And last but not least, my “date night” outfit.  I took a simple half-circle skirt, some black nylons, black booties and BOOM.  I’m ready for a night out with my man.  Or my girlfriends.  I’d take either at this point.  #thanks2020

What was your favorite way to style this top?  What would you have done differently?  I’d love to know!

Make sure to get in on the daily rotating sales that are happening all month at Patterns for Pirates!  We launch a new pattern on sale every day, along with stylized images just like mine — check it out on the blog, on Facebook, or on Instagram all November long!
