Sew What Do I Wear

So, the Holidays are approaching and I'm quickly sewing up Christmas outfits for my kids, family pajamas and even a few gifts. The question is what is mama going to wear? We have a list of events to attend in the next few months: brunch, fundraisers, choir performances, tree lighting ceremonies, and tree decorating with the family.  I want to wear something festive but weather appropriate, which means it need to be warm because it's COLD here. It also needs to be comfortable because I have three kids who I will be chasing around at each event. I love the slim fit raglan, it's flattering and comfortable but is it dressy enough for holiday events? Well, with the right fabric and a funnel neck add-on it's the perfect choice for me.

I made this one in red french terry and it's just what I needed: festive formal enough for our events and most importantly comfortable. I love the funnel collar because it adds a bit of class to the raglan and makes it just right for holiday events.

Scarves are everywhere this season so I used the Made for Mermaids free tutorial and made mysself an infinity scarf to add to my outfit for those especially cold nights.

Now I have the perfect holiday look!

I sewed up one more raglan just to show how versatile this pattern can be. This is my tree decorating shirt. This pattern can go from formal to sporty depending on fabric choice and that's what I love! A pattern is especially versatile! (Slim Fit Raglan) (add on pack) (bundle)
