I know August isn’t even over, but the last few weeks the air has been changing and it smells different. I’ve started day dreaming about autumn clothes and colors. So I thought I’d start a little list of my daydreams so that perhaps I could plan a little (versus my helter skelter approach to sewing).
I have visions of the Luffa shawl collar jacket from Waffle patterns or the Scooter Jacket from Hot Patterns in a maroon/burgundy (like this beautiful brushed wool twill from Turo fabric) with black pleather trim. The only think that makes me hesitate is I’d really much rather have a paper copy of the pattern and not have to fuss about with the PDF.
I’m really liking the shape of the Pleated pencil skirt from Delia Creates and am imagining it in a burnt orange, some brilliant print like this Liberty cord. or this soft looking Chambray from ditto fabrics.
And of course as you never know what you’re going to get I’ll need to be prepared with some long sleeve blouses too like Natalie Top from Liola patterns out of one of the new MonaLuna prints or this fantastic floral.
And then there the everyday comfort need for the Bonnie top from Blueginderdoll in some of these amazing stripe knits.
Oh me oh my – I need to win the lottery I think! I’m not sure where to even start. Breath.
