September has been bad for the fabric diet. Because I love fall colors. And I love fall fabrics. I spent a good part of Saturday making pretty piles of fabric. And then rearranging those piles into other piles. Yum!
Here’s what I am planning to sew this month:
From left to right: a dark gray wool hooded jacket with purple silk lining, a gray cotton dress with orange facings and pockets, gray, green, and black knit tops (probably cowlnecks) and a pair of blue-gray corduroy pants.
My collection of wool knits, mostly from Fabricmart. I’m going to make some smartwool-style tops and sweaters for winter. The orange one isn’t a knit but it was too rooish to pass up. Its also from Fabricmart. I have no idea what I’m going to make with it.
Some dressier fabrics I picked up at Winmil earlier this summer:
The two on the left will probably be dresses. For the one with the squares I am thinking of a longer jacket. Its a cool silver on the other side.
Oh yes, and these two came in the mail today:
The cream one is for another jacket, and the brown one is for my Mom’s dress. Its a little more green and less brown than I thought it would be. Here’s the pattern I am thinking of using:
Not necessarily with the buckle. Fabric and pattern okay, mom? (Don’t worry, there will be an orange contrast stripe!)
