My goal in life is to be comfortable always. Comfortable with who I am. Comfortable with who I give my time to. Comfortable with my choices. But, most importantly, comfortable in my clothes. 😀 If I could work in jim jams, I would. They frown on that at my work. You might have noticed that I do my best to make clothes that are comfortable, while still being work appropriate. My lounge clothes are no different! So this Rebecca Page Comfy Town Blog Tour is the PERFECT topic for me!!
Nothing is more comfortable than well-fitted, soft, cozy clothes. Turning over the theme for this blog tour sparks so many options for living in #comfytown. When I think of Rebecca Page Sewing, the patterns that pop in my head first are beautiful, classic, well-fitted pieces. Mostly just work appropriate sews. But, there are soooooo many choices for ridiculously comfortable clothes to be made from these patterns!
Now, I can’t make comfy outfits without including Virginia. It is a goal in my life to help her feel the true college experience. This includes studying for hours in your jammies. You can’t focus on psychology without soft fabrics, cozy tops, and warmth! So we started with Pippa Pants. We both LOVE Pippa pants. I used them to make our Christmas jams last year and I wear mine all the time!! (I hacked them to shorts, so they’re perfect all year!) We picked up the ever-coveted Harry Potter Fabric at Joann Fabrics when it finally hit our store (and our sister’s store). It is the perfect weight cotton lycra for these pants!! Plus, I made them a little long, so when she curls up with her textbooks, her feet have a bit of extra coverage!
We are doing our best to avoid buying fabric, so we were stash shopping for something for the top. I found this great burgundy/maroon ish waffle knit that I ordered a while back from Fabric Mart. Since I picked it up for me, I hope Virginia appreciates my sacrifice. 😀 (I really am kidding. We have lots of fabric! I much prefer using it for the perfect project, rather than having it sit around.) This waffle knit is PERFECT for the Paris Party Top! I cut the neckline a bit wide, then took no care not to stretch it out a bit while working with it. The off-the-shoulder coziness was this delightful end result. I did bind the neckline, rather than the traditional t-shirt neckband, and love the end result!
But, with an off the shoulder look, we couldn’t not use the Strappy Cami to make a coordinating tank! Bonus – this black double brushed poly is a scrap from a bundle from So Sew English, that we already used to make a shirt! That’s right y’all, a quick sew that also uses a tiny bit of fabric! Crazy.
Virginia is now comfy and ready to study. Or help decorate for the holidays. You know, whichever is most important. 😉 Now for me!! I also want Pippas. Obviously. But, I’m not much for pants, and we’re in the stage of our house where we are desperately trying to not turn on the furnace, so it is a bit too cold for shorts. The 3/4 length is exactly what I need! This french terry has gotten a lot of use in the last month, after sitting in the stash for at least a year. I’m 90% sure we found it at Fine Fabrics. (That’s how long it has been in our stash! I just don’t remember.)
I knew I wanted to try the Strappy Cami with the ruched option. So I dived into my stash and found this great black mystery knit from a scrap box I ordered FOREVER ago from So Sew English. I’ve been meaning to make a tank out of it since the box arrived. I am so very glad I waited! This tank is PERFECTION! It fits perfectly. It is comfy. It is more than just a layering tank. With the ruching, I am more than happy to wear it out and about with a cute cardi!
So, obviously I need a new cardi. I’ve had my eye on the Cora since it released. So simple, but so beautiful. The Moms bought this oatmeal sweater knit from her first visit to Fine Fabrics, the remnant section, which I didn’t know existed. I was so excited about it and KNEW it needed to be a Cora. I just hadn’t taken the time to print and glue the pattern. Turns out it was less than an hour from a stack of pages to wearing this ridiculously comfortable cardigan. I almost immediately made a second one. And text all my friends to tell they everyone needed this cardi. I knew it would be comfy, but had no idea that it would be cozy and warm, but cute and easy to wear. Everyone really needs at least half a dozen of these. EVERYONE.
Outfits complete, Virginia and I are ridiculously comfortable, but so cute, and ready to tackle anything. Christmas decorating. Target runs. Movie marathons. Plus we’ve added a few staple pieces that can mix into our regular work wardrobes as well.
