Well, it’s officially Fall and I can’t wait for the cooler weather to make its way down South!  I’m not holding my breath that it will happen any time soon, but this year I can say that my wardrobe is prepared thanks to Love Notions’ Origami Tunic and Cardigan.

When I think of versatility of patterns, the first company that comes to mind is Love Notions.  Not only are neckline and sleeve length options the norm, but in Origami, there’s even a cardigan option!  Are you ready for this?  Short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, long sleeve; banded neckline or cowl neckline; straight hem or handkerchief hem; tunic top or cardigan.  All in one amazing pattern!

Since we had such a warm winter last year, I hoarded tons of sweater knits.  When the first teaser “cool front” blew through town a few weeks ago, I sewed up allllllllll the Origamis!

Because the pattern features a straight hem or a handkerchief hem, you can add variety to your wardrobe with just this one single pattern.  This floral french terry is my “oops” – after sewing the cardigan (which I wanted a bit longer), I forgot to shorten the pattern pieces to make it a tunic to wear with jeans.  After I sewed this one, I felt it was too long for a tunic and too short (for my liking) as a dress.  So I added a little trim and ended up with a fabulous dress!  That little trim did the trick!  Plus, I love that I can wear it plain, belted or with a jacket for several cute look!

I also love that I can make matching tunics for my daughter!  She is 5 and still loves to match (hooray!!).   The girls Origami does not include the cardigan, but it is just as fast and versatile!  This style is really on trend and I love that I can whip these up quickly for both of us!

What’s that?  Now YOU need Origami too?!  Well, we have a deal for you during this Origami Tour!  You can grab the Ladies Origami for only $8 and the Girls Origami for only $6!  Sale ends Saturday, September 30th at 11:59pm CST.  Think of all of the combinations you can make in one pattern!  This is a BIG DEAL!!
