Can you believe that it’s already the second week of September? Where did the summer go?
May thru August seemed to have gone by in one big blur for me, from moving and changing jobs, it all seems a bit overwhelming.
Despite how chaotic this summer was, I’m really looking forward to the fall. Not only do I feel like I’m slowly acclimating to my new surroundings, but I’ve also got a lot of fall sewing projects plan.
Speaking of fall sewing, have you taken a look at the new fall patterns that have hit the market. If you’ve read about my pattern stash, you probably know that I need new patterns like I need a hole in my head.
No seriously I have way too many patterns for any sane person. Yet, I can’t help but fawn over the latest patterns that have hit retailers.
First up is McCalls 1920’s vintage reproduction patterns. Pattern M7250 features a lovely semi-fitted blouse. I just love the look and drape of this pattern. I could totally see myself making this to wear for the holidays.
Next there is McCalls M7259 pattern, another 1920 reproduction of a coat and cape set. While I don’t particularly need another coat, like I don’t need patterns, I can’t help but love how amazing this set looks. At the very least I might make the cape and pair it with the blouse mentioned above.
Last on my McCalls list is M7245, which is a pattern by Designer Joi. While it might be a modern pattern I can’t help but feel the dress has a lot of vintage flare to it. It’s kind of giving me a 1930’s vibe.
Simplicity also has a few new patterns this fall which I’m really considering to add to my collection.
Simplicity 1017 wide leg pants are so comfy looking. The wide leg also gives them a vintage appropriate look. I’ve been thinking about attempting a pair of pants and think this might be a good pair to start on.
Then there is Simplicity 1014 which is for a knit tunic with cowl neck. The cowl neck can be worn a couple of different ways including a hood.
While this pattern is more a modern look, especially with the way the bottom is cut. However, I think I’d like to try to refashion it into a dress, maybe with a 1940’s old Hollywood style. Could you image those sleeve cuffs in faux fur?
The last pattern I’m currently swooning over is Vintage Vogue v9127. This 1939 dress has some very unique stitching details and back yoke. I really like the look of this pattern and would be perfect for a day at the office.
There’s a quick rundown of my current fall pattern faves. While I said earlier that I don’t need any new patterns, my birthday is just around the corner in October, and well I might be inclined to get myself one or two (or all of ) these patterns.
