Indiesew Style Post | Fulton Sweater Blazer by Alina Design Co

I have been excited (and a little impatient) to add the  Fulton Sweater Blazer to the Indiesew Pattern Shop . This stretch blazer design by Alina Design Co. is modern, beautifully cut, and so on-trend.  But I wanted to wait to add this pattern until we launched Winter Knits Week . Yesterday, we launched several new  ponte fabrics (perfect for this design) and I finally get to show off my Fulton! . . .

Joy Jacket with Fool's Paradise Poly Crepe Lining | Joy Jacket Sewing Pattern with Fool's Paradise LIning

Today we get to showcase my favorite piece from the Fool's Paradise photoshoot: the Joy Jacket by Chalk and Notch ! I knew that sewing a fun contrast lining using the  Fool's Paradise Light Poly Crepe would appeal to those who are a little more print wary. What I didn't expect was that this would quickly become my favorite thing to wear this fall. It's that good. If you're just tuning in, check . . .

How We Wear It: Archer Shirt | How We Wear It: Plaid Archer Shirt

Today's style post is firmly rooted in basics (nothing at all fancy here), but it's a silhouette I find myself reaching for constantly once the weather cools down. Every fall, I sew at least one button-up shirt. I have narrow shoulders, and set-in sleeves paired with collars tend to balance out my proportions. I find them comfortable to wear and they elevate an outfit to a notch above a casual . . .
