This week, I wanted to focus on The Faerie Dragon Set. Again. I really like these knitting patterns, and since the gloves are free for all VIPs until Halloween, I figured we might as well do some outfits with the set! So gain access to the free Faerie Gloves Pattern, all you need to do is to order or newsletter. You’ll then receive a download link to the pattern, and a 20% discount code for a pattern of your choosing. We send out one newsletter per week, so every Friday after 7PM, you’ll receive an email with a news cap, and a 10% discount code for each week’s featured pattern. You can unsubscribe at any time, but I do hope our notes keep you entertained. So in today’s Faerie Looks -post, we’ll look at outfits featuring this beautiful, multicolored Faerie Set.
A fun fact about photos for the next three posts: on the night before photo-day, I slept with a sock bun on. I wore the bun for the first photos, let it out into a curly, messy bun for the next ones, and finally let it loose!
For the first look, I went with our Pretty Basic Party Dress. This cute little black dress features a see-through yoke, and a short hem. The pattern comes with two options for the sleeves that you can choose from. And if you don’t like either, you can just use the sleeve from our Pretty Basic Jersey Top or Jersey Dress. All of our Pretty Basics sewing pattern pieces fit together, so you can Frankenstein pretty much anything with them!
For this look, I wore The Party Dress with very little accessories. I chose a long chiffon sash to tie around my waist, and wore The Faerie Gloves to give the look a pop of color.
For the second of today’s Faerie Looks, I wore a jersey dress I made a long time ago. When I first started dating Charming, he had to go abroad on business. He was gone for nearly two weeks, and I needed a pick-me-up as well as a distraction. So I spent that time sewing dresses for myself. This is the first dress I made. It was followed by ten more, if memory serves, and set way to a tradition: whenever Charming goes away on a business trip, I make myself a dress or two.
For this look, I paired the dress with a tulle petticoat, and my brand new elastic corselet. I wore The Faerie Dragon Shawlette over the dress to give the look some color and warmth. I love this style, and I’ve actually worn something similar out many, many times.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Faerie Looks!
Until next time.
