Well to distract ourselves from knots in throats and pains in the pits of our stomachs, we sew. With fall rapidly approaching, I would like to get on the ball with some fall sewing. I have a bit of catching up to do, because our trip to New Mexico got me a little behind on my to do list. The pattern above is one I have mentioned before, but I think that it is perfect for fall and winter for the boys!!!!! The vest is supposed to be done in fleece, which is always nice and warm in our cold Colorado winters!!!!!!!!!
I love a good pinafore style dress for my daughter, and this pattern includes the leggings!!!!!!!!!!!! I love simplicity patterns, I would have to say that they are one of my favorites. Simplicity and Burda are usually what I sew with the most.
This pattern is super cute!!!!! I would love to sew up this as well. I usually choose things that can be layered. That way, when they get to school they can just add or remove layers to be comfortable indoors or out.
For myself, I have a few things planned. I love the vintage pattern below, but I have not been able to find it to purchase. So maybe I can adapt the Burdastyle pattern above to recreate the style.
I will also be making this blazer. I already have the fabric, a beautiful textured black stretch twill. I have a feeling that this will be a wardrobe staple!!!! I love the peplum! I will line it with a red fabric with a white pin dot.
I will also be making a pair of high waisted skinny jeans, hopefully that end up looking like the picture below. I have fabric for this as well, a very dark blue, almost black Italian stretch denim. This will be the first pair of jeans that I make, so I hope it goes well. I will be using a Burdastyle pattern for this as well, the one pictured below. I may have to do some fitting adjustments, but I am looking forward to the challenge!!!!! I will be omitting the pockets in the front and may be adding some in the back.
So readers, what are you all excited about sewing for fall? Do you as well have a hard time sending your children of to school? Any advice for my daughters dilemma? Thanks for stopping by and reading! Besos!!!!!
