Team Candy Corn : You’re Either With Me or You’re Wrong

Oct 15, 2021

Listen up, Internet dwellers.  I’ve been seeing A LOT of hate online for candy corn over the last few years and it always ramps back up around this time of year.  I’m here to tell all you haters this:  YOU. ARE. WRONG.  Candy corn does not deserve the nonsense you’ve been sending it’s way.

When I was heading to my sewing table to make a new Go Team Dress (the latest release from Patterns for Pirates), I knew just the team that I wanted to represent.

Team Candy Corn allllll the way, baby!!

We aren’t exactly sportsy people, but that’s not all that the Go Team set of patterns from P4P is about.  In it’s most basic form, it’s a cute shirt with a fun front + back yoke that makes for scrap busting / pattern mixing / etc.  But it’s also got the ability to be stylized to represent your favorite teams.  Obvs I’m a big fan of Halloween and dorky clothes, so this felt like the perfect chance to support that tri-colored sugar candy of cuteness.

With this release, we had a set of FOUR patterns all launch at once.  The Go Team Jersey, Go Team Jersey - Youth, Go Team Dress + Go Team Dress - Youth.  I made myself a few Go Team Dresses, and I’ll be following up all week long with more super cute shirts that I created for Louis and Bennett as well.

The Go Team Dress features:

  • Three necklines: Crew, V, Hooded.
  • Four sleeve lengths: Short, 3/4, Long Hemmed + Long Cuffed.
  • Five Hem Lengths: Crop, Shirt, Curved, Tunic + Dress.
  • Front + Back Yokes.
  • Optional Sleeve Stripes.

I’ve spoken this truth about a million times on here, but I am a fan of body skimming tops on my own frame.  The Go Team Dress has a beautiful silhouette and I’m pretty smitten with it on me.  This particular make of mine has all of these options covered:

  • Vneck.
  • Shirt Length.
  • Short Sleeves.

If you’ve ever been someone who struggles with / is afraid to try a vneck, I HIGHLY recommend getting in on this pattern and making yourself a million.  I’d like to think of this as a “cheater” vneck, because it’s such an easy way to construct one!  The neckband is attached before you add the top yoke to the bottom bodice, so there’s less fidgeting and you can make a perfect v with a lot less effort than the traditional way.  I highly recommend trying it out.  I think you’ll love it!
