How Do You Wear the Eureka?

Sometimes the best garments are simple, easy to wear and comfortable. Clothing that will take you to work and to the park on the weekends.

Introducing the Eureka Top & Skirt. A pattern all about simplicity with a few creative details.

Here's a look into Kathy's way of wearing the Eureka.

"Pieced Eureka Top: I saw a short boxy sweatshirt in one of the fashion magazines that was pieced in several different fabrics.  I found several knits on our shelves and gave the piecing a try.   The skirt is a black knit. (Also shown with the Verona Jacket)

The Zona Jacket is one of our previous patterns. I have always loved the closer fit at the shoulder, the diagonal seams and of course the convertible collar that can stand up and frame your face or lie flat.  This Eureka skirt is a poly texture.


When working up the new Eureka pattern, I tried the skirt in a woven instead of a knit.  The look is very different, but it works out fine.  This plaid is a very airy cotton, the woven fabric does not give so much on the bias as a knit would, so the skirt fits a little slimmer.  Maybe I will add just a touch more to the size next time when working with a woven.  The sweater is from my closet, but I loved the mix of gray, black and taupe that picks up the colors in the skirt."


Erin's thoughts on the Eureka Top & Skirt: "I love how much room to play I have with the Eureka Top! I can create an evening look with a metallic lace knit top, slim black pants with platforms sandals. Then I'm ready for drinks with girlfriends!

In contrast the Eureka Top is also the perfect weekend staple. In my favorite knit stripe the Eureka goes perfectly with skinny jeans and boots.  I can even chase around my 3 year old in this outfit. A definite necessity for me!

I call this my work friendly outfit of choice. Granted I have a pretty relaxed and creative work environment! But the look can be more conservative by just adding closed toe pumps, tone down the Urban T-Shirt with a solid or throw on a button-down shirt. The Eureka Skirt has an elastic waist. A comfortable skirt you can wear all day long."
