I am running really last minute here. I had originally planned to make this outfit while I was at the Sewing Summit, but umm.....Sewing Summit was way too awesome and I was sidetracked by a million things, so it didn't happen. Then when I got home I had 3 pattern tests that I needed to get done, so this outfit kept getting pushed back and pushed back.
Tuesday I had declared that I was just going to skip it.
Then Wednesday night came and I had an awesome friend tell me to get with the program and get my outfit finished.
So here is my Hipster Plaid.
(And yes, I finished this at 1am this morning. lol)
The Sweater is the David Shirt from Ottobre 4/2013. I omitted all of the pockets on it. I used strips of knit to kind of be a enlarged mirror image of the plaid in the shirt on the front and just topstitched it together. It's not all across the shirt to give it a more hipster/edgy look.
The pants are the Chillax pants from Ottobre 1/2013. I LOVE these pants. I am dead serious when I say that I am drafting up a pair of these for me.
The only thing I changed is using the plaid instead of knit for the pockets (gave it that pop of plaid) and then I added cuffs at the bottom. I wanted them to be a bit longer so that they will last all winter and the cuffs were a perfect solution.
The Plaid button-up shirt is Peek-a-boo Patterns Classic Oxford Shirt. This shirt was a really last minute decision. I had planned to make the sweater have a hood, but then realized I didn't have enough knit for that, so a collared shirt was just what it needed to finish off the look.
In all, this outfit was perfect. I used my stash (except I DID buy the dark teal knit while at Sewing Summit...shhhh), and this outfit was a need and will be used a TON this winter.
Just showing off more pics of my silly baby boy who is growing FAR too fast!
Thank you Crys for pushing me to finish this look! I really love it and know Jude will wear it a ton!
Loving all the plaid looks!
