I shared what I thrifted and bought for my fall capsule, now let’s dig into what I’m going to be making! I’m writing this much earlier than posting so that throughout the coming weeks I can share my pieces as I make them. I’m excited about my plans and they accidentally turned into a module- 1 topper, 2 bottoms, 3 tops- so I’ll share them in those groups in the coming weeks. You’ll notice a lot more neutrals and some basic pieces that are missing from my closet in this little collection. I’m looking forward to trying out some new patterns and silhouettes this season!
I have been looking forward to sewing this pattern since it came out. I’m going to lean into the menswear look as this is an oversized blazer, and use this classic wool suiting I picked up from Stylemaker Fabrics. I like that there are blacks and browns in it and I think will look great thrown on over jeans on cool days.
For the bottoms of my module I’m looking at two black basics, the Bob pants by Style Arc and S9237. The pants will be in a poly cotton blend I picked up from Joann and I like that they are a basic black trouser but in an interesting shape. I think it will be fun to play around with this silhouette. The skirt is a black ponte from Stylemaker and again it’s more of a basic but in an interesting shape. I loved my anniversary dress and this skirt is that same faux wrap style.
I bought this cotton plaid from Minerva and I’m not quite sure what style I want to go with. I love the menswear look mixed with athleisure wear- think elastic waists/joggers- and have a few patterns in mind that might work.
And finally, tops! Again, a couple of basics that I really need. I want an ivory top, I picked B6855 for a cute blouse and have a viscose challis from Minerva in ivory. I think this will be easy to wear on it’s own, layer up, and style more casual or dressy depending on what I need. I bought this lovely striped ponte roma from Minerva as well and want to make a classic shirt. I think the lines of the Newport top from Itch to Stitch are really nice and will give me the look I’m going for. I bought this cupro jersey from Surge Fabrics for my tshirt month but it ended up needing something more than a tshirt. I tentatively have it ready to be an Adrienne Blouse from Friday Pattern Company but am open to changing it up if I want to.
Those are my big fall sewing plans! I hope to have something to share with you next week. What’s on your cutting table? Any patterns out there that you’re really loving?
