Posted in: Style & Wardrobe • October 31, 2018

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.

A stylish coat is the perfect garment to add polish to any cold-weather outfit. Invest some time to sew a timeless piece of outerwear like the Francis coat, and you’ll have a wardrobe staple with tons of styling options for seasons to come.


Laid-back











Francis | Skipper | Manila | Sneakers



This look is perfect for when you need a comfortable outfit that doesn’t scream “I woke up like this!” This combination gets a cool upgrade with the addition of texture and dreamy, muted colors.


Classic










Francis | Astoria | Tessa | Boots




A plaid Francis coat with a faux shearling collar epitomizes classic, cool style. For the ultimate fall ensemble, pair this coat with your other fall favorites like high-rise jeans, a cropped sweater, and boots.


Colorful










Francis | Lane | Earrings | Block Heel





Don’t be afraid to play with colorful outerwear. Sewing Francis in a vibrant hue can help you add color to an otherwise neutral outfit or lend a fun color palette even more pop.
