Getaway Sewing Series: Spring Winery & Antique Shopping Tour

Christine Jonson Patterns

Getting away for a weekend winery and antique shopping tour? You're going to need some comfortable traveling clothes! Most winery tours involve driving from winery to winery by car or bus. Our Winery and Antique Shopping Weekend starts you out with our customer-favorite top, the Princess Wrap Top. This top, a faux-wrap with shirring on one side is very flattering. For early spring, we recommend the long sleeved version worn under a reversible hooded vest. The Hoodie Vest is shown as a jacket here, but can be made easily by omitting the sleeves and turning the vest out from an opening in the sideseam instead of the sleeve as in the pattern directions.

You'll want a great pair of pants to wear and the Cuff Pant is super on trend right now. It's a drapey but narrow pant - so you get all the benefit of a relaxed pant with a scrunchable waistband, and neat pockets inserted in a dart (there are no sideseams on this pant!) And you still keep the narrow slim pant silhouette.  Top the whole thing off with the Easy Coat. Try this in a laminated cotton or cotton-canvas. Trust me, it's an easy coat to sew, that's why it's called the Easy Coat!  You'll round this fun spring outfit out with either wedge sandals or ballet flats - comfortable but stylish, as you'll be standing at the wine bar or wandering antique shops all day.

If you're bold (or younger), I saw these very same pants in a college town boutique window in a small repeating zebra print worn with an eyelet crop tee. The pants come up high, so no worries about a completely bare midriff - you'll be showing off only the best part if you pair it with a crop top. For this, I recommend an abbreviated version of the cut-on cap sleeve Three Tees pattern.
