Two of my most hated foods: mustard and olives. Two of my favorite fabrics we’ve sent out for Fabric for Pirates (which are the last two we’ve sent): mustard and olive. I find that to be the most hysterical thing ever.
It’s the 15th of the month, y’all! Let’s talk about what we sent out for this month’s Fabric for Pirates!
We sent out such a delicious fabric this month, perfectly in sync with the fall season that’s heading our way.
Fabric info: Oversized Waffle
Material: 64% Polyester, 34% Rayon, 2% Spandex
If you’re ever wondering how you can turn yourself into a redheaded fall goddess, this. This is fabric is how. It’s so flipping amazing that I can’t even handle myself right now.
Just as a fair warning: if you have a puppy at home who is still a jerk even though she’s 2 and likes to jump on you…watch yourself (and your temper) while you’re wearing this amazing sweater at home around her. Because claws can grab between the loose weave so quickly it’s ridiculous. Maybe someone needs to come make my dog act right, haha.

I paired this month’s fabric with the Sweater Weather pattern from Patterns for Pirates. I know, I know. Shocking, right?
It felt like a reunion when I slipped my new sweater on. Seriously this pattern holds my heart in ways that it shouldn’t. Because I’m aware it’s just a sewing pattern. But it feels like we are connected in a beautiful moment of oversized sleeve, split hem goodness.
The Sweater Weather pattern is like “why are you so obsessed with me?” and I’m just like “hush, hush…just let it happen.”
