July Sewing Inspiration: Your Fairfield and Jed projects

Fairfield and Jedediah

An exceptionally elegant Fairfield and Jedediah combo made by Sarah for her husband to wear to their wedding.  Both of their outfits were handmade by the couple – they even made their shoes together!

I’ve been mailing out a particularly large number of Fairfield Button-up Shirt patterns lately (and their PDF counterparts are selling in greater numbers than usual too)…after a peruse of the latest Fairfield projects on Instagram, I can see that many of you have wasted no time getting to work!  Here are some of the most summery Fairfield’s you have all been making:

Fairfield Button-up 1

I like this monochrome take on a tropical short sleeve button-up made by Suzie.

Fairfield Button-up 2

And again, with the monochrome theme, this delicate floral Fairfield looks very versatile.  It was sewn by Lise.

Fairfield Button-up 3

For a wonderful beachy-vibe, this pineapple print Fairfield, sewn by Alicia, is perfect!

Fairfield Button-up 4

Meg’s take on the Fairifield in a romantic floral is perfect for her and her husband’s date night.

Lastly, to fully embrace the balmy weather we’ve been having, this stunning hibiscus printed Fairfield by Angie is the epitome of summer!

Each summer, our Jedediah pants, or more specifically their shorts variation, crops up increasingly on social media.  Here are some of the versions that have caught my eye!

Jedediah Shorts 1

Matt could really use a pair of Jedediah Shorts in this versatile blue- grey – he’s wearing his lime green ones daily right now!  Nina sewed this pair for her husband and included my favourite detail from this pattern – the binding along the side seam.

Jedediah Shorts 2

Rumana made a slightly longer pair of Jed Shorts for her partner – I really like this flattering length and have seen a few pairs cut to just below knee lately.  Also, note her lovely binding in the photo below:

Jedediah Shorts 4

Stephanie’s take on the Jedediah Shorts, above, are a little shorter than the pattern calls for and in fact, are similar in length to the pair that I made for Matt years ago…he wore those ones to pieces!  This length is ideal for incredibly hot summer days.

Jedediah Shorts 6

This rich wine colored pair of Jedediah Shorts is one of four pairs of Jeds that Katie made for her husband!

Jedediah Shorts 7

Another person to sew multiple pairs, Natalie really perfected the finishing details such as the elegant waistband clasps and fun pocket prints.  Two of her versions are above and below:

Jedediah Shorts 8

To bookend this post with another wedding image, Jen made a dressy pair of wool Jedediah Pants for her partner, Nick.  She slimmed down the legs a bit to suit this more formal style.  She really nailed it!

Whether you are sewing a menswear outfit for a summer wedding or a trip to the beach, the classic lines of the Fairfield and the hybrid nature of the Jedediah Pants design mean you really only need one button-up and one trouser pattern for summer!
