Some of my german Näh-Connection ambassadors and I have a little blogtour going on this week. We all sewed a little fall outfit and blog about it. There is so much eye candy! You should definitely check out the other posts, too (see end of this post for links). My fall outfit consists of a Ninot Jacke and a Timpe Tee, two patterns that I added right away to my favorites list!
It took me “only” three years to sew this jacket :) I saw it first when it was Pauline Alice’s brand new pattern. I liked the Ninot Jacket right away, but was a bit afraid of sewing a jacket. Two years ago I met Pauline at Abilmente in Vicenza and even tried her jacket on. I loved it! Last year I finally bought fabric on the fabric market, soft yellow boiled wool from Pumuckl Stoffversand 4U. However, I wanted a hooded jacket and kept pushing the project back until it was too cold.
This year I finally got to sew the jacket. First, I still wanted a hood, but then I saw all those thick, wide shawls that people wear this year and simply loved them. I chose to go a different way and to sew the jacket collarless. Within just some hours I had my jacket. The boiled wool is super soft and warm and as this is a fall jacket, I didn’t even have to line the jacket. Plus I left the hems raw. Boiled wool is amazing! I graded all of the seams to reduce bulk and topstitched them from the right side. The neckline and front are finished with a facing. I understitched the seam allowances to the facing to keep this edges nice and clean. I love how it turned out.
Well, a outfit of course needs more than one piece. I had sewn the Timpe Tee by schneidernmeistern already during testing, but never got around to actually take pics. Fortunately it was perfect together with my yellow jacket. I love blue and yellow together. It’s just the perfect combination! The striped jersey is from lillestoff . I found it at the lille.stoff.festival and it just had to become a timpe tee.
I normally prefer closer fitting tops and ain’t a big fan of boatneck tees on myself as the neckline feels a bit restricting to me. Well, luckily Monika is a genius! The width of the timpe tee is perfect: Loose, but not too loose. And the neckline is the perfect boatneck, without feeling restricting at all.
I really love my new outfit. I’m going to wear the timpe tee all the time. And not only in fall and winter, but also next spring and summer. It’s going to look so good being styled in a nautical way! Do you want your own Timpe Tee? Well, Monika and I are already planning the translation and you’ll be able to get your hands on it in spring!
The jacket will be my daily companion during this fall. It’s so warm and cozy. Even at six o’clock in the morning when it’s almost freezing, the jacket is warm enough while I’m waiting for the train to Munich! Plus it’s almost wind and waterproof! Did I mention that I LOVE boiled wool?
How would your fall outfit look? Which colors and which patterns would you choose? Let me know in the comments!
