Fall Plaids

Outfit (Vintage Simplicity Pattern 8185)//Fur Purse//Cord Boots//Jewelry Forever 21 in store

I am so excited about today's post! I absolutely love 60's and 70's style clothing and anything plaid. I was on the hunt for a plaid outfit (I love sets) and wasn't able to find anything. I started to look on etsy and ebay for vintage patterns and came across this 1960's pattern. It is a Simplicity pattern #8185. I immediately could picture the outfit in my head made with plaids. I headed to Hobby Lobby and picked up this plaid material and got to work.

The outfit took me a few days to make. It isn't perfect and I used lots of different sewing techniques that I wasn't used to doing. I mean let's face it, I pretty much only sew super easy things haha. The minute I put it on though, I was so proud! It was better than I imagined because I made it.

The last step in the outfit was styling it and finding a perfect spot to shoot pictures of it. I am obsessed with orange and always tell clients to style with texture, pattern, and pops of color when I do photoshoots. I had wanted a similar bag last year from Free People and couldn't justify the cost so when I came across this very similar one at Target I had to have it. I also tried these cord boots on a while ago at Forever 21 and decided to go back for them when I knew they would go perfect with the outfit. They are also a much cheaper dupe for some that Free People is carrying. This retro coffee shop in Detroit was also the perfect spot to shoot these photos.

Is there anything you ever made that you were super proud of because you couldn't find what you wanted? I would to hear! I know the last 2 posts were homemade outfits, but my next few posts are things that can be found in store so make sure to check back and leave me a message of things you would like to see or for me to cover.
