The title of this post could alternatively be ‘A Pinterest wishlist’. I’m seriously on that site most days, coveting the many beautiful clothing and crafting ideas. I’ve got plenty of sewing ideas of what to make in the upcoming months. The only problem is whittling them down to what I’m actually going to make and wear.
Here’s a list of things I’m (hopefully) planning to make fairly soon.
My love for tartan is reignited around mid September and I’m like a woman obsessed with tracking down all that the high street has to offer. I already have a plan to make a tartan smock dress like the Sudley, having seen the best fabric (that I sadly didn’t pick up) at the GBSB Live a few weeks ago. I can imagine quite a few in varying colours!
There’s something special about wearing warming florals in the colder weather. Never one to give up my florals whether or not it’s sunny, I’m planning on a fair few midi skirts in burgundy and navy floral fabric, next to a few dresses of course. I love wearing florals with brogues and thick black tights at this time of year. I’ve already blogged about one here.
I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect lacy top to wear with thicker cord skirts and denim pinafores this coming season but so far, I haven’t found it. The one above is a simple yet stunning wear and I’m thinking of making something similar but still need to hunt down the perfect sewing pattern. Any ideas?
I just love the idea of pairing a shirt with a sweet embroidered collar with the thickest of jumpers this autumn. I’ve found a number of tutorials and inspiration online so this is one I’ll probably personalise. Perhaps I’ll even make a Rosa shirt to embroider?
What are your seasonal sewing plans? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
It’s always at this time of year that I particularly start craving an autumnal colour palette. For me, there’s something a bit special about mustard or yellow when the weather is a bit colder outside. I think it started with a certain Marks and Spencer advert featuring Twiggy, Erin O’Connor and a beautiful yellow coat a few years ago. The colour just stood out for me and I’ve been associating yellow, and mustard in particular, with this season ever since.
There are a number of beautiful clothes in the shops at the moment and, as ever, I’ve been pinning my faves. Here are just a few things I’ve been inspired by lately and hopefully some of these will translate into actual made by me clothing.
