Flannel Shirt Fall Outfit

Skirt Outfit Skirt Fixation plans to sew in 2019

This week I’m determined to share the rest of my Make 9 outfits from 2019, and first up is this flannel shirt fall outfit.  Here are my original plans:

And what I ended up with is almost exactly what I had planned!  There was only one small change which I’ll get to in a couple of minutes.  Let’s start with the flannel shirt.  I’m calling this fabric flannel, but it’s the smoothest, softest flannel I’ve ever sewn!

Of course I used the Cheyenne Tunic pattern from Hey June to create this shirt.  I cut out the pocket, yoke and collar pieces on the bias, and the effect is just beautiful!  The sleeve placket is also cut on the bias, but I don’t think I got any pictures of that, so you’ll have to believe me!

You can get an idea of how nice this flannel fabric is by looking at the way it drapes around my waist in the back.  This was deadstock fabric from Indie Sew.  Sadly, it (and Indie Sew) are gone, so I can’t link it for you.  I’m wondering if there’s some rayon in with the cotton content of this fabric though.

Okay, moving onto that Sandbridge Skirt.  Well it’s actually a Sandbryce skirt as I’ve combined the Sandbridge Skirt pattern and the Bryce Cargos pattern again.  This is my FAVORITE skirt pattern now, and you can read all about how I did it in this post.  The fabric is Maroon Stretch Twill and absolutely wonderful!  This skirt is going to last for a very long time due to the durability of the fabric.

Oh, and let me show you the insides of this skirt!  Both of these patterns have instructions for finishing the insides very beautifully.  So I splurged and used some bits of Liberty of London fabric to bind the insides of the waistband.  I used some of it for my Brunswick Pullover and still have a bit left to tuck in some fun place.

Now about the change from my original plan.  I got lazy!  So instead of printing, tiling, and cutting out the Nikko Top from the original plan, I used the Union St. Tee pattern from Hey June Handmade.  It’s a tried and true favorite, and I added the turtle neck pattern piece from the Tallinn Sweater.  This fabric is stretchy enough that I knew it would be no problem to blend the two patterns.
