I’ve been busy working on my next pattern which should be out by the end of September. More on that soon. Now that I am making patterns I have found that it is easy to get wrapped up in it and neglect my blog. I am trying really hard not to do that. I love making things for myself and trying new patterns and I love my blog. So, to keep myself on track I decided to put together a little list of the things that I want to make this fall.
1 – Large Print Pencil Skirt – Pencil skirts have always been one of my favorite silhouettes. I think that they are flattering on pretty much every body type. I am on the lookout for the perfect print though. I want fabric that is large scale and bold. Considering the Charlotte or Jenny pattern.
2 – Woven Hudson Pants – I love my other pair so much that I want to make up another pair in a nicer fabric. Maybe even silk. They really are the perfect fall pant and are easy to dress up with a wedge or clog or down with sandals. I just need more of these in my life.
3 – Large Bag – I have found that I really could use another bag in my life. I fell in love with these Nena and Co. bags and I have this tribal linen fabric that I have been hoarding forever that should fit the bill. I am thinking about pairing it with either some leather or waxed canvas (anyone have some favorite sources). I want something a little less purse and a little more tote bag so that I can strap it to the back of my stroller when we go to the park. Still deciding on the pattern to use, but thinking about the poolside tote, or the senna tote although I am open to suggestions.
4 – Black Ponte Dress – Somehow I have lasted this long without having a LBD in my wardrobe. I’ve been hanging onto this Cynthia Rowley pattern for awhile meaning to make it and I think it’s finally time. Nothing more flattering and I know that it will get tons of wear.
5 – Large Bead Necklace – OK, not sewing, but DIY for sure. Every time I see Sophie of Ada Spragg wearing her chunky bead necklaces I want one of my own. I have found a few tutorials to make them myself and I am crossing my fingers that they work out.
How about you guys. Thinking about fall sewing yet? Any must sew items?
