Indiesew.com | 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.

This week in Colorado we abruptly transitioned from a very hot summer to winter weather in the span of about 24 hours. As snow fell from the sky yesterday morning, I realized that it's time to pull out the cozy  knit pullovers and work them into my wardrobe once again.

Fabric Batch #016: Sketch

Indiesew Fabric | Batch #016: Sketch

When we sent out our 2017 Customer Survey  there were a few surprising (to me) requests that trended from this community. One of those?

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 . . .
