Have you seen the beautiful new fall issue of sew news? I think I say this every issue, but this one might be my favorite of all time! It's full of luxe fall fashion and sewing inspiration that's sure to get you excited for the colder weather and spooky season ahead!
To go along with all this fall goodness, the fall sew is all about the Black Forest bodysuit that Kimberly, our incredible sewing team member and pattern designer extraordinaire, created to be the perfect fall layering piece which will accompany you throughout the fall and winter seasons. Best of all, she's hosting a LIVE event from her home studio so you can sew the bodysuit with her!
3 reasons to sew with Kimberly
There are more than three, of course, but here are a few reasons to grab the pattern, your supplies, and your fabric, and get ready to sew!
Versatility! Kimberly designed the Black Forest Body pattern to be full of versatile possibilities. First of all, its layering potential is incredible. As temperatures drop in fall, you can easily pair a bodysuit with other clothing items like cardigans, blazers, jackets, or even cozy sweaters. This layering adds warmth and allows you to adapt to changing weather conditions. Bodysuits offer a sleek, streamlined appearance. Unlike regular tops that can roll up or come loose, bodysuits stay in place perfectly, ensuring your outfit stays put together all day long. Bodysuits can effortlessly transition from day to night looks. You can pair a simple bodysuit with jeans for a casual daytime look, then dress it up with a skirt, heels and accessories for a night out. If that's not enough for you, bodysuits also create a great canvas for showcasing accessories like statement necklaces, scarves, or belts. These accessories can enhance your fall look while complementing the bodysuit style.
Expert advice and community! Kimberly will share her tips and tricks for working with knitted fabric while going through the steps of creating the bodysuit. I mean, how often do you sew with the pattern maker? If you are new to working with knitted jersey or creating a more body-friendly garment, this event is for you! Additionally, the seams promote a sense of community among participants. You will have the opportunity to connect and share with other sewing enthusiasts working on the same pattern, share progress photos, ask questions, and offer encouragement. This feeling of camaraderie can be motivating and make the sewing journey more enjoyable. Additionally, Kimberly and other participants can provide valuable feedback and troubleshooting assistance if you encounter any difficulties.
Structured learning: Participating in our fall sewing is a great way to learn new techniques or expand your sewing skills. Kimberly is sure to introduce you to innovative construction methods, fit adjustments, fabric selection tips, and other valuable information that can enhance your overall sewing superpowers. By following step by step, you will be able to gradually develop your skills and gain confidence to tackle more complex sewing projects in the future.
I think the Black Forest bodysuit would pair well with these other great fall styles for the perfect fall capsule wardrobe:
Layer your new bodysuit with your favorite jeans and throw on a modern belt bag like the Ember Belt Bag. This one is at the top of my list of things to sew.
