For some reason I am totally addicted to the Linden Sweatshirt pattern!
Maybe because it fits perfectly my need for basics in my wardrobe and my new addiction to my serger.
Maybe because I feel so comfy wearing it and I think it is the best way to look attractive!!:)
Or maybe because it can look casual or chic depending on how I wear it!
Bon je suis complètement accro à ce patron du Linden Sweatshirt. C'est simple, rapide et hyper confortable.
Le mois de janvier est un mois où je suis en mode "survival" pour différentes raisons et ce patron a exactement l'effet euphorisant dont j'ai besoin!
Le tissu de chez Camillette était prévu au départ pour faire une copie honteuse de la jupe de Julie mais finalement, je voulais un projet rapide et facile et j'ai décidé d'en faire une version B du Linden.
I chose to add a bit of color to this grey fabric: the neckline and a little tag on the side are mustard. If you have asked me 6 months ago I would have told you I would never wear mustard. But it grew on me : after making this skirt, I was hooked!
But I also wanted to know what it would look like when I wear it when spring finally comes: so I put on some jeans and we made more shots!
But I can assure you I am nothing close to sophisticated! well, at least I don't feel like I am. I am quite the clown both in my classroom and the teachers room too and my kids often call me "crazy mama" when I improvise a funny dance in the kitchen while cooking dinner for them.
It is not easy to convey one's personality through a photoshoot. It is easy to put special make up on and do your hair nicely and pretend it is your "everyday look".
So I thought I would show you some of the photos that were a bit more fun this time, so you can see I am nothing like a posing queen!
These are the clothes I wear daily , except I would not wear heels with jeans, but rather boots. But my heels were out to wear with the first outfit and it was more convenient to put them on for the second.. .dinner was cooking and we had very little time to give to this photo session!
So ! here is to more versions of this Linden pattern!
January is the hardest month of the year for me: I am quite on the "survival" mode during that month. So anything comfy and cosy is more than welcome!
I don't know, it is like I am walking around carrying with me the joy I had WHILE sewing the garment! if ever that makes sense to any of you!!:)
But I am sure you sewers do understand!
Do you also have or had seasons in your life when you needed to feel comfy like I do now? Do you prefer to sew wardrobe builders or special occasions garments?
