Sew The Look: Holiday Party Outfits!

        Sew the holiday outfit of your dreams with our showstopping range of party-ready fabrics in our Holiday 2022 collection! These fun and fancy fabrics are ideal for shimmering on the dance floor, celebrating with loved ones, or to add a little joy to your winter #WFHwardrobe. Whether you want luxe texture or subtle glam, our range of velvets, satins, silks, & prints is sure to add some much-needed festive flair to your 'fit!
        Delicate and fine, these fabrics are best sewn up using our Schmetz MicroTex Needles! With an ultrafine and sharp tip, these needles will glide smoothly through your fabrics without leaving large stitch holes.
Come along as we walk you through all the special occasion looks we've been dreaming up!

1. Layer up with texture 

Sewing Inspo for our Holiday Collection

        Play with opacity and texture with some lustrous layers! Pair our Checkmate Velvet Burnout in Blossom Pink with the Anna Allen Clothing Anthea Blouse (up to a 51" hip) and wear it under the Friday Pattern Company Saltwater Slip (up to a 60" chest, 63" hip) in our Silky Dotted Viscose Dobby in Chocolate

2. Lustrous Lounging
Sewing Inspo for our Crushed Stretch Velvet

        Staying in? Be the belle of your own (at-home) ball and drape yourself in a comfy velvet loungewear set! We've paired our Crushed Stretch Velvet in Merlot with the Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater (up to a 64" hip) and The Hemming Bay Flares (up to a 58" hip), and it's giving slouchy sophistication!   

3. Slinky Silhouettes
Sewing Inspo for our Crushed Stretch Velvet and Buttery Poly Satin

         Turn up the volume in the sleeves but dial it back in the skirt with this elegant ensemble! We've paired Sadie Egan's (@spaghetti_western_sewing) #SWSRamonaNoonDress (up to a 60.6" hip) from Issue No. 5 of Tauko Magazine with our Crushed Stretch Velvet in Moss and the tried & true Seamwork Dezi skirt (up to a 58" hip) with our Buttery Poly Satin in Lagoon

4. One Piece Wonder
Sewing Inspo for our Crushed Stretch Velvet

        A wrap dress is easy to wear, effortless and completely timeless! The Closet Core Elodie Wrap Dress (up to a 63" hip) sewn up in our Crushed Stretch Velvet in Bluestone is the no-brainer outfit for any and all holiday occasions. 

5. Velvet Tuxedo
Sewing Inspo for our Non-Stretch Crushed Velvet

       Make your own #MeMade version of the iconic Christian Dior Le Smoking Suit with our Non-Stretch Crushed Velvet in Black Smoke. Whip up this glam twist on a classic suit with the Friday Pattern Company Heather Blazer (up to a 63" hip) and the Closet Core Mitchell Trousers (up to a 63" hip). Worn together or as separates with a casual tee and denim, these pieces are sure to last you many years to come!
