Wear to Where – Touring your City

I first “met” Katy when she reviewed my Timmy Top pattern (my first review by someone I didn’t know! I was so excited!!) and was instantly hooked – she’s just so fun! When she called for bloggers to join in the Wear to Where series, Tasha and I knew we wanted to be involved!
Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}This is extra special for us, because this is our birthday week! How lucky are we that we’re not only best friends and sewing buddies, but that we actually get to celebrate our birthdays at the same time? We’re turning 29 this year, but we’re already planning our 30th birthday party – to be celebrated in about five years… ;)

Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}So back to our post – we decided to take a girls’ weekend and head out of our actual city to a city we’ve both lived in or around: Seattle! We left all the kid with our husbands and spent the weekend eating good food (mmm – sushi! mmm – brewery food!), catching a movie (The Martian is so good!!), and visiting the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park.

Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}It was a little cold and drizzly, but that’s not really a surprise considering we were in Seattle! I’ve never been a real “artsy” person, but the sculptures in the park were really intriguing! And it was right downtown, so we had a good view of the Space Needle, too.

Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}This was one of my favorites – it felt like we were standing in front of a fleet of ships (or at least, what I would imagine that feels like…).

Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}Tasha made herself a Laurelhurst Cardi (with the ways she’s been raving about this, I’m adding it to my to-sew list!), an Anna Blouse (how gorgeous is that fabric? We found it at Joann’s), a pair of Jamie Jeans, and a self-drafted fold-over clutch. Everything she made turned out looking so professional!

Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}I made myself another Pemberly Dress – this is my third, plus I’ve made a couple tunic length tops! I used this super soft dark gray knit and colorblocked the back bodice with a piece of embossed suede and I love how it looks! I also used the suede for the little clutch I made – it has metallic rose fabric and an exposed lace zipper, too. I also made my Watson Bra and used the Mykonos Tankini bottoms to make my underwear, but I’ll spare you a picture of those – you’re welcome ;)

Wear to Where - Touring your City {{Friends Stitched Together}}It was so nice to get away and spend a weekend doing grown-up things with no schedule to keep! And taking pictures in the middle of an art park made us both feel like models ;) I see more girls’ weekends in our future!

And thanks to Tasha’s long arms, we even got a great selfie – we sure clean up good!

The Old Spaghetti Factory – growing up, this was one of our favorite “special” places to go out to eat.

Even the inside was cool!

This tree totally fooled us on the way in – we didn’t realize it was metal til we passed it a second time!

    What? I was your first reviewer? I didn’t know that! How fun!

    I adore this post and you girls. SUPERMODELS!! I love the location. I love your outfits. (I especially love that picture of you where you’re looking all “I even made my underwear and you don’t get the privilege of seeing them.) Haha. What an amazing weekend. I seriously need to do this soon with my galpals. Sometimes a little female bonding time is just what the doctor ordered.
