Pinterest is one of my favorites spots..... I can look, plan and then look some more. I pin things from blogs, fashion sites, retail sites, to name a few. I still tear pages out of magazines but with Pinterest I am so organized, no more bookmarking, no more emailing myself links, no more trying to remember "where did I see that?" I use to spend way too much time on Pinterest, just like with anything new. Now I feel it is a good balance and I still am getting things accomplished.
I thought I would share a few things I have pinned for fall sewing ideas.
I love this blazer and have to get some fabric to make it.
How about this top? ponte here I come.
A new look on the peplum, I like the pleats for a bit of a change. The belt and the pearls are a nice touch, too
A floral blouse, I have fabric for this, too. In fact two different ones. I think one will be a traditional blouse and the other fabric will be for a different type.
This fun tunic - fabric purchased a bright pink Thakoon from Mood. A bit of bright color for fall but more for the dreary days of winter
|Pinterest - Burda pattern|
Some other ideas pants I love my Burda 7447 pattern and the pants I have been making from them, so plans for a few more of these.
a jacket (either Simplicity 2250 or 2446 or Hot Patterns Riveria jacket), possibly a skirt. From this fabric. Actually, I have enough to make a jacket and a skirt. Any thoughts on the jacket pattern? I am leaning toward the 2250, I like the no lapels and the rolled up sleeves.
|Mood Fabrics' brocade|
and I have tops made from this fabric (my Mood Sewing Network post) and I think it looks really good with the above fabric. That is why I want to make a jacket.
There are no dresses in my plan, I just don't wear them that often. My job really requires jeans with occasional pants. so I try to do tops and jackets, to dress up the jeans or pants.
My goals for fall sewing
1. Make things I will wear often, things that will work in my everyday life.
2. Fill up my closet, things that will go together and make it easier to get dressed each day.
3. Try some new techniques and new fabrics, expand my horizons.
