It’s been a while, eh? I took an unexpected break from sewing and blogging to really commit to a summer of lazy family days and travelling shenanigans including Italy and Canada.
But now summer’s well and truly over (sigh) I can get excited about a whole new Autumn/Winter of sewing.
Have you got any plans for A/W 2015 sewing? I’ve been decidedly restrained with my goals this year.
A/W sewing inspiration
I love the shape of the top in this first photo. So comfy looking. And, heck, let’s be honest this is pretty much an excuse to make me some more Deer & Doe plantains. I do love that pattern.
I’m 100% addicted to a knit dress shift dress I made using my trusty Sew Over It Ultimate Shift Dress pattern (unblogged). My current version is in a lush forest green ponte knit, but the fabric was pretty cheap and started to bobble almost immediately. Sad days. But, I shall make it again with some proper fancy knit.Also, maybe some sort of raglan sleeved knit shift dress. Sounds complicated, right? I may need to build up to that one.
Jeans. This. Is. Happening. People. I have all the supplies I need. And Named Clothing’s Jamie Jeans pattern. Plus there’s this sew along from Indiesew which looks like it will make the whole thing a cake walk. Fingers crossed.
I’m already halfway through a chambray midi skirt using a vintage pattern (found at the charity shop for 10p – score!). So I’m going to include it here, even though it’s totally not autumnal. We all need small wins, right?
I’m also loving the skirt from the first photo… maybe a By Hand London Charlotte?
