I am crushing hard on fall right now. In New England, it's almost as if Mother Nature looks at the calender and uses Labor Day as a cue to bring in the cooler temperatures. I've been loving the weather this week - my windows and sliding door have been open every day while I've been sewing up a storm, and nothing beats sleeping with the windows open and listening to the crickets outside at night. Ahhh fall...
So needless to say, my thoughts have moved on to fall sewing. I'm digging a lot of the fashion I've seen pinned on Pinterest, so I created a "Fall Fashion" board to keep track of looks I love that I want to sew myself. It's all about layers, slouchy tops, red and orange, and some plaid thrown in. Some of the patterns that I think could work well for my fall sewing:
1. Long Sleeve Scout Tee in plaid - I'm loving that Lumber Jane look, I think the Scout tee pattern would get me a close knock-off of the ModCloth top I pinned. I found the perfect plaid flannel at Mood!
2. Sloppy Josephine Tee - I like how the raglan is fitted but the rest of the shirt is loose and blousey.
3. Moss Mini in red corduroy - I made one last year in teal, I need another one this year but will make it a little longer
4. Sewing my own knit jersey scarves - so much cheaper than buying them at Gap and I have plenty of leftover yardage from knit tops in my stash
5. A modified Simplicity 3631 in red wool - wouldn't belt the short version and would lengthen the sleeves, maybe make them a little less flared. Would be great if I could add a funnel collar or something.
Are you thinking fall sewing already? What are your sewing plans?
