Ever since I first found Lekala patterns, I have been in love with them. So when I saw a challenge for sewing from just one company, there was no better company for me than Lekala.
I adore their pattern selection, and of course the ability to size them exactly to my size is just wonderful. Even with the sometimes odd instructions, Lekala patterns are fast becoming a favourite in my sewing room!
When choosing patterns for this challenge, I knew I wanted three pieces – then it was just onto deciding what ones! In the end, I went with numbers #4245, #5985, and #4183. All three of them drew me in very quickly when I saw them, and even after looking through the rest of the patterns these three were still in the front of my mind.
And here they are together! I just adore that pop of brick orange under the floral jacket.
This ended up being a stashbusting challenge for me, as I only spent $1 total! I bought a remnant of lining for the jacket – everything else was out of my stash.
Construction on all three pieces was very easy and flowed well, even when the instructions were sometimes a little confusing. The top is so warm, I used a wool blend for it and I just adore it. I have already chosen more fabrics to make this again, it is so perfect for the weather here at the moment – icy cold so a built-in scarf is super practical!
And my favourite detail of the entire outfit? That curved front seam on the skirt. I just love how it sits, and it is now my go-to pin-up skirt – effortlessly easy to wear, and so comfortable! I used a remnant of stretch denim which wasn’t quite big enough for any other projects.
Overall, I can definitely say I am a Lekala Fangirl!
