Seamwork Style

Mix and match patterns for a unique me-made wardrobe.

July 31, 2016

Seamwork patterns are a great way to build and add variety to your wardrobe. Each pattern takes no more than three hours from cut to finish. Mix and match the ever-evolving list of Seamwork patterns for an easy, customizable wardrobe of clothes you love. When you subscribe you will get two easy-to-make patterns a month, helping you achieve the perfect me-made wardrobe.

This month, we styled the Lynn dress and the Elmira wrap for the transition from summer to fall.


Full skirts like the Brooklyn are a girl's best friend when the weather is warm, especially when stitched up in a breezy cotton or linen. This warm weather staple is also perfect for transitioning to fall, when the days are still warm but the evenings are chilly. Pair Brooklyn with the Elmira wrap for a cute ensemble that boasts a modern fit with a nod to vintage style. Pair this combination with your favorite thrifted broach for a classic touch, or try adding a pair of opaque tights for a cute and modest look.


Who doesn't love the chic style of a shift dress? The Lynn dress is a wardrobe building must-have that is incredibly versatile. We stitched Lynn in a fun Cotton+Steel quilting cotton that can easily be dressed up or down. The body-skimming shape of this dress makes it a perfect match for the Anise jacket. The Anise offers a boxy shape, reminiscent of the early 1960s.
