Over the years, I have noticed that sewing helps us to unlock new layers of our personal style. Having more control over the silhouettes, colors, textures, and prints we dress ourselves in, brings us in touch with our style and the way we present ourselves to the world. To me, personal style is the way we introduce ourselves without words; it is a visual language that only becomes richer when you have control over your medium.

With Seamwork Style, I want to inspire you to see the creative potential behind each pattern, because your me-mades should work for your life and your style.

Fall is all about layers, and pinafores offer a ton of fun and unique layering opportunities. Whether you prefer to keep it classic with a merino turtleneck, or you like to put a boyish spin on it with a T-shirt and denim jacket, we’ve got some style ideas for you!


The Dani pinafore is an ideal layering piece, breathing new life into your favorite turtlenecks and sweaters. Try shortening Neenah into a top and sew it in a cozy merino wool. Not a fan of turtlenecks? Switch it up by wearing a long-sleeve T-shirt like Alice.

Capes are basically made to be dramatic, and Dani’s short hemline perfectly complements Camden—a Seamwork favorite. Go bold with a daring color and fabric combo—black suede and rust boiled wool—or keep it monochromatic for a chic alternative

Dani can even fit into the most laid-back wardrobe. Keep things simple by pairing your pinafore with a simple T-shirt and a classic denim jacket—and don’t forget the sneakers!
