I don’t know about you but when the weather starts turning from Summer to Fall, I get excited. I LOVE sewing for cooler weather seasons…more opulent fabrics, structured silhouettes, and the ability to layer. I probably start a little too early thinking about my Fall transitional wardrobe. I love cool weather…fashion is just better when the temperature outside is not 100°…so I just can’t help it! I am going to show you the patterns that I am most excited about this Fall.
Click the images for links to the patterns and below each image, I have a list of recommended fabrics.
First of all, I can’t say enough about this coat! The color, the shape, the hat (in the picture that I need to find and purchase…all FIERCE!). When this pattern was first introduced, I knew that this would be first on list of patterns to buy. Now I need to make it…! Here are some of my fabrics that I am considering for this coat HERE, HERE, HERE.
A short peacoat is the perfect transitional weather outerwear essential that every girl needs in her wardrobe. I would love to refresh my closet with a new, peacoat for the Fall. The McCall Pattern Company is doing their sew along for this coat. I will be following along to make my own peacoat. The fabric options are really endless with this pattern. Here are a few of my favs that I would recommend HERE, HERE.
A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a project on my sewing bucket list on Instagram. I can’t promise that I will make this before the end of the year, but I think that this pattern is GORGEOUS! Also, I recently purchased the most AMAZING fabric from a store that I follow online Fabrics-Fabrics. I can’t wait to cut it…but this is going to be a special one…so I will need some time to perfect all of the details.
Ok, I think that this is cool style to wear as a casual look for the daytime. Nevertheless, I am currently training for a half marathon that will take place in January. I think that this jacket would be perfect made out of an athletic fabric. Found this great option HERE. I will make the sleeve length slightly longer and cut out a thumb hole…but this is the perfect runners jacket! Stay tuned!
Like the jacket listed above, I think that this pattern is easy and the PERFECT pants for my half marathon! Let’s see how it turns out. In the meantime, here are some fun fabrics that I might consider HERE, HERE.
BCBG has some really great long dresses that they are selling currently on their website. One in particular HERE reminds me of this dress. I think that the pattern and even solid fabric options for this dress McCalls M7242. Here are few fabric options that I love for this dress (HERE, HERE, HERE…this one is my fav! You will need a little more yardage as it is only 45″…but OMG this would be AMAZING in this fabric!!!!).
I love this dress for so many reasons…and again…the fabric options on this pattern are endless. The ThReD and Needles sewing group is working on wrap dresses for the September project. For my wrap dress I will be using this pattern for my project. I am still deciding on fabric…but this pattern is so great that I think that that is going to be the easy part. Denim would be a great option for either view. Here are some denim options: HERE, HERE. I also recommend this pattern in a great printed cotton (solid on the bodice and printed on the skirt portion…perhaps?). Here are some great printed woven options HERE (entire dress out of this fabric…), HERE, and HERE (how cute would this one be with a solid black top HERE and the bottom (skirt portion in the camo)? L-O-V-E).
Perfect for business, layered with a blazer, or cut from a “going out” fabric…I think that this is a very sexy, slinkly blouse. I love the idea of the contrast colors but this could also be made out of some prints. To maintain the flowiness of the style, fabric options like crepe, charmeuse, or voile. Here are some great options to consider HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE.
Well…this is just a shortlist of my favorites for this Fall. I have some Spring/Summer patterns that I might also consider for Fall. What project are on your list for Fall 15 sewing?
