Fall Sewing Plans ~ Me Sewing

Fall, my favorite season. I love the crisp air and the beautiful colors.  (I dislike the allergies).   
Time to start a Fall Sewing List to keep me somewhat on track.
Summer plans will have to wait until next year unless they make it over to this list (and some did make it onto the fall list).

So here is what I would like to me-make between September, October, and November

  1. Looks like a great list for fall sewing! I'm still trying to catch up on summer stuff...;)

    1. Thanks Cindy, I think I've just given up on summer - accepting that I'll just not get it done. LOL. Plus it's been getting colder here already so I figured time to move forward. You still have some nice weather for a bit ;-)

  2. I love fall too! I love your plans; everything looks great! I am focusing on bottoms for me at the moment. I am sewing up my Jaime Jeans. I just need to plan a shirt for them. I just bought several blouse patterns from New Look, but I see more I want. I am so addicted to patterns. I love the planning process as much as sewing.

    1. Thanks Shirley! Let's hope I can get a bunch of these sewn up. I am a bit burnt out on the bottoms because of the Thurlows, but I haven't given up all hope yet! (I'm so close to that great fit).
      Oooh I love blouse patterns! (Well, all patterns I guess) They are just so fun to look at. I am with you, I love the planning and browsing too.

  3. This is awesome! I love the robe sweater and the Advance dress. I think we're definitely entering the fall of the shirtdress and I couldn't be happier about it!

    Love the Cambie fabric, too. I need to make a basic-color Cambie for wearing to work.

    1. lol, I am all for the fall of the shirtdress! Thanks Aleksandra!

  4. Looks like a great list! Fall is one of my favorite seasons! Can't wait to see how your jeans turn out. I am working on a pair of pants right now, but the pattern is loose fitting and I am using linen fabric.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I looooove fall. The colors are so pretty. Good luck with your pants!

  5. love your plans! I can't wait to see that floral lawn. I almost bought it like 3 times.

    1. Isn't that funny when you keep passing over something? I did the same but then bought it and I wasn't sorry. It is awesome! Thanks Nakisha!

  6. Nice choices! I was just thinking the other day about how I've fallen off the jeans-making bandwagon. I was all gung-ho after my first pair and bought that Jalie pattern, then never followed through. So I'm hoping you'll make a pair and inspire me to get back to it :-)

    1. hahaha. I hope so Gail. I would love to make mine but the Thurlow process has me a bit scared! Fitting is so hard with a sway, large rear, and full front thighs. I will hopefully get enough courage here soon!


Your comments really make my day! I read each and every one. Thank you!
