Trending: ‘Warmdrobe’ Sewing Patterns
We spotted the fashion term ‘warmdrobe‘ recently and thought, yes, that’s what our handmade wardrobes need – an injection of cosy layers. I love to add layers to keep the cold at bay. I rely on a minimum of three during the winter and always have a pair of woolly socks on as I get such cold feet! I’ve started sewing pieces to keep me warm this winter and reduce my reliance on the heating when I’m working from home so I have made quite a few of these patterns myself. Several of the sewing patterns selected are also fairly quick. and easy to make, so you can stitch and get toasty!
We trawled the shop to find sewing patterns that may inspire projects for your own ‘warmdrobe‘. It’s a lengthy read as we wanted to include lots of options so grab a cuppa and have a browse!
Our first two garment types for a ‘warmdrobe‘ come from Kate’s Sew the Trends research! The Cold Arm is a trend I am keen to adopt. Perfect for days you want more body warmth, but don’t want to forgo your tops and blouses.
Another trend Kate spotted is a favourite of mine – high-neck sweaters! Whether you like something form-fitting for layering, or slouchy and ultra-warm, this project is pretty easy and speedy to sew and will get lots of wear.
If you want the ultimate layering piece, a roll neck is a must. I’ve made the Megan Nielsen Rowan and the Papercut Patterns Rise and Fall Turtlenecks and thoroughly enjoyed sewing them. The Rise and Fall are particularly good value as you get slouchy and fitted patterns so you can make both!
Oh, I love throwing on a cosy cardigan. This classic layering piece is pretty straightforward to sew and wear!
I think most makers have heard of the True Bias Marlo Sweater… and almost as many have made it (myself included!). It’s such a great layer for keeping warm. The Style Arc Palermo Knit Jacket also looks like a really great pattern for sewing the cosiest cardigan possible!
A popular autumn project with the Fold Line team, quilted jackets are a sure thing for keeping you warm. They can be worn as outerwear when it’s milder or around the house when you want to insulate yourself indoors.
