Rebecca Page - Autumn Blog Tour



Good day everyone and welcome to the first Rebecca Page blog tour "Turning the page sewing for the changing season".  

(La version française est disponible ici)

Over the years, the Rebecca Page collection evolved from the original brand name “Mummykins and Me by Rebecca Page” and kids patterns to a wide range of patterns for babies, kids (girls & boys), ladies and crafts patterns.  So far, I featured on the blog a few projects made from her pattern collection (including the Owl Costume & Bird costume).  I have probably completed 15 projects with Rebecca Page patterns.




I’m currently signed up for a wardrobe planning workshop . My goal is to have a cohesive, wearable and practical wardrobe. This changing season blog tour was timely for me,  I combined both activities to create an outfit that I can actually wear for this fall season. 




My first Fall project included the Peggy pencil Skirt* and Olivia peasant top*. Two new pieces in my wardrobe.   



This classic skinny black skirt was made out an heavy knit - scuba. I selected the traditional style for this pull-up.  Definitely a quick sew!



For the Olivia, please note the fabric choice will impact the finished look of the garment.  My  fabric has drape which hangs in folds and swings when I move, limiting the oversized appearance. In addition, for this version of the Olivia I went down one size to reach the look I was looking for.




I can combine those two pieces with other pieces I created in the past or I already bought.

Here is my Olivia peasant top, Peggy Skirt with the Cora Cocoon cardigan*, which is perfect for casual Fridays! 



I cannot wait to wear this Cora Cocoon, it's so warm & cozy!


I love the Olivia top with a skinny jeans for a night out with the girls.





Keep in mind that the ladies sizes are drafted for a C cup bust and a height of 5 foot 6 inches.

Rebecca Page collection is full of Fall/Winter options, including the woman version of The Riley vest which is on my to do list!

    2. I love them. If you don't mind me asking what fabric did you use for the Cora Cocoon and did you size it up or down. It looks amazing and so cozy.
