Scandinavian Style Sewing Series

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

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.
