Fall Flannel


In an effort to check off #7 on my Fall Bucket List, I've made this cozy flannel shirt/sweater/cape/wrap thing. I couple weeks ago, I was at the fabric store getting some fabric cut for Married & Bright, and as I was leaving the cutting table, I was literally stopped in my tracks by this gorgeous teal, black, and white checked flannel. I had to make a second trip to the cutting table {which you know isn't fun} just to secure this fabric.


I'm not really a button down shirt kind of girl, and as much as I'd love to wear a festive fall flannel shirt in a pumpkin patch this autumn, I knew it wouldn't get much use from me. I wanted a piece that I could sip hot chocolate on the deck in, snuggle into on the couch watching Hocus Pocus, as well as wear in my basement studio space while I sew. This mash up design seemed to tick all the boxes. More than two yards of fuzzy fabric make the body of the garment, which means lots of extra cuddly versitility, but the sleeves are loose and long enough to keep me warm, and be rolled up when it's time to get to work.


Whenever guests come to town, we always put Leiper's Fork on the list of must-dos. When Alex's college friend, colleague, and groomsman, Tucker, swung into town for the shortest of work trips, we knew we had to take him out on a drive over the Natchez Trace Bridge out towards Franklin and into Leiper's Fork for a pulled pork sandwich at Puckett's, and a stroll into the antique shops, and simply to sniff the nostalgic scent of a campfire at David Ames gallery.
