TO MAKE: FALL SEWING
1. Lovely Shirtwaist
I haven't figured out what kind or color fabric I want to use for this, but I am most definitely going to make it. Isn't it gorgeous?
2. Pocket Skirt
Have you ever seen such glorious pockets? Wow. I was thinking of making this up in a heavy-weight knit. What do you think?
3. 60's Jumper
I've never been much into jumpers, mainly because they are such a homeschooling stereotype. That has all changed, however. I watched a great old movie the other day called "The Petrified Forest" with Bette Davis and Leslie Howard. Bette Davis wore the cutest jumper and now I must have one too. This one is not the same style as Bette's, but I think it would work better in the modern wardrobe. And it has bigger pockets.
(Bette Davis. Sorry, it's the best image I could find!)
4. Wrap-around Skirt with BUTTONS!!!
Um, need I say more?
I'm thinking a big, brown plaid wool suiting.
5. Square-Neck Ruffle Blouse
I love this old McCall pattern. The other views are adorable as well, but short sleeved. I want to make a few for next summer. I think I will make two of these: one ivory and one blue.
6. Wide-lapeled Jacket
In a fabulous plaid boucle suiting (see below). I think I'll change the cuffs, though, and wear it with jeans.
7. 40's Coat
I am in the process of making this out of an old recycled wool coat. It looks great so far!
8. Red Corduroy Jacket
Be still, my beating heart. I love, love, love this coat pattern. I made it last year in a green wool melton (I'll have to post a pic!) and this year I am going to make it in red corduroy with Amy Butler cotton lining!
And last, but certainly not least...
9. Mod Coat
*Cough* Uhm...yeah, I have this obsession with making coats.
I think this one is amazing. I am going to throw creativity out the window here and make it just like the picture on the pattern envelope. Well, plus pockets.
Will I really make all of these things for this fall?
We shall see.....
p.s. sorry I don't have the pattern names and numbers up. I am didn't think to write them all down before I butchered the scans, and I am too lazy to go downstairs and get them right now. If you see one that you are curious about, just let me know. ;)
