It's Day 2 of the Scandinavian Style Sewing Series hosted by the wonderful Stacey from Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy crafts. I was especially excited in participating in this series because I love this style! The simplicity and minimalism are right up my design alley, and I couldn't wait to create my look. My research took my to CIFF and the Scandinavian Mini Mall. There, I found gorgeous garments ranging from bright, whimsical prints to understated modern neutrals. Searching my stash, I found some cozy off-white faux fur I bought ages ago, and knew in an instant that it had to be a part of the outfit in the form of a reversible vest. From there, the rest came together, from the black ribbed jersey turtleneck, to the quilted cotton skirt, and finally, up-cycled leg warmers made from socks.
All the garments for this outfit were adapted from existing clothing or self-drafted patterns. If you'd like to re-create part of the look, I've got a couple tutorials for you.
Thank you Stacey for this great idea for a series and for the invitation to participate.
