The Knitwear of Emily In Paris

Going into Emily In Paris, I assumed that it was going to be similar to shows like Sex and The City and Gossip Girl but I couldn't have been more wrong. 

Emily in Paris is the story of a gallery girl named Camille who has a fateful run-in with social media marketer Emily Cooper. Emily has just recently moved to Paris. Despite giving off a friendly first impression, Emily has a dark motive, and she slowly weasels her way into Camille's life. By the end of the season, Emily has found a way to cheapen Camille's family Champagne business, slept with Camille's boyfriend, and also her 17-year-old brother.

And for some reason, no one is talking about the two biggest mysteries of the series. One, what happened to the former social media manager Patricia who was the only person to see Emily for who she is. And two, Emily's wardrobe is MASSIVE, but we only see her moving in a few suitcases to her apartment at the beginning of the show. And in the last episode, we learn that she only has one drawer??? Does Emily have a secret storage unit? The mysteries of this show run deep, and I'm excited to see where this dark drama series goes in season two. 

I'm only 30% kidding. People have had a wide range of valid reactions to Emily In Paris but if there's one thing everyone can agree on, it's that the fashion was incredible. After finishing the season, I couldn't help but wonder... how is Emily affording these clothes and how can I DIY these sweaters and accessories?

And that can only mean one thing! It's time for a "Knitwear Of" blog post! Let's dive into the knitwear of Emily In Paris and find patterns that we can use to make them! 

P.S. I apologize in advance to my French readers. I can already tell that Google translate is not my friend.

    The Hexie Cloud Baby Quilt By Kylee Alexander

    The quilt that started it all - the Hexie Cloud Baby Quilt makes its debut. By Kylee Alexander  The Hexie Cloud Baby Quilt, in all of its glory. As a lifelong sewer and fashion designer, all of my sewing had been garment based. Upon graduating college, the first project I thought I would create was a new collection, or even a garment for myself. Instead, I began patterning on my studio floor, creating a pattern for my first quilt - a log cabin to be exact. In the spate of freelance jobs juggled with full-time work, the quilt got shelved. Over several years I designed and created several collections, lots of garments for myself, but eventually hung up my idea of creating the perfect log cabin design.  It wasn’t until years later that I began reconsidering quilting. At 75, my grandmother began (and completed!) her first quilt and gave it to me. Obviously inspired and with an array of cottons I had stashed, I began conceiving my new quilt design. I had plenty of blues, and as someone who

    Top 10 Forgotten Knits in Memorable Movies

    W hen you think of each of these movies chances are these are not the sweaters that pop into your head. But they should be! I'm going to explore knitwear that is continuously overlooked because a much more iconic item of knitwear steals the show. Maybe this will inspire you to take a second look at these movies. Each of these movies is going to get their own posts eventually. But, those posts will most likely focus on the other more popular knits. So this is a moment for the underdogs to shine!
