Style Maker Fabrics' Fall Style Tour 2020 - Outdoor Fun






Fall is here and in Missouri and we are having fall, cool, crisp mornings, warmer afternoons with a chill in the air for the evenings.  This change in the air is just the best and I am loving it, we usually go from 90 degrees to winter!  With this perfect fall weather in mind, my stop on the Style Maker Fabrics' Fall Style Tour is all about outdoor fun.



Michelle and Sharon of Style Maker Fabrics do such an amazing job curating a collection and this fall selection of fabric is so good.  Take a look at the Style Maker Fabrics' Fall collection and you will see what I am talking about. 




If you have followed me for anytime, you know I have a passion for plaid, so I knew plaid would be involved and for outdoors, I wanted a jacket.  Pinterest here I come for inspiration and this was the pin

Style Maker Fabrics' has so many amazing fall plaid flannels, deciding was a bit hard.  I have been so drawn to the mustard color, I went in that direction and picked, this Tartan Plaid in Terracotta, the mustard for the trend and the terracotta is quite trendy, too, making it even better.

This flannel is a bit heavier, good for a jacket  and now it was  time to find a pattern.  Fellow tour member, Lindsey of Inside the Hem helped me find the perfect pattern.  The Paper Cut Stacker Jacket , is a bit relaxed with  drop shoulder and a shorter length.  I did make some changes in the pattern and my interpretation of  the inspiration. 

  1. I eliminated the front yoke
  2. Lengthened the arms by two inches, the pattern envelope looked like the arms were short, I ususally do one inch but felt on this one two was necessary.
  3. Lengthened the body by 1 inch
  4. Deepened the armholes, I felt like the armholes were tight and if this is a layering jacket, I needed room for sweaters and in this case a sweatshirt
  5. I worked on smaller chest pockets and flaps but with the plaid I didn't like the look it was creating so I went with the big patch pockets and cut on them on the bias
  6. Cut the back yoke on the bias
  7. Interfaced the front pieces, back, hems, sleeve hems and the upper sleeve
  8. I also interfaced the pockets and lined them



Now back to the plaid flannel, this has to be one of the nicest flannels I have sewn.  Grain is so straight, perfect weight and sews beautifully, Style Maker Fabrics never disappoints.  I did cut in one layer so I could really control layout and matching.  To match the plaids from front to back and the sleeves to match the body of the jackets. The tutorial I use for this is easy and so doable, Grainline Studio's tutorial and I love the results.  One more thing I had pieces of paper with a "w" for wrong side.  I pinned it on the wrong side just to keep everything straight. 

  See that great line from the back to the sleeve - this just makes me so happy!  


And here the sleeve to the front,





The pattern does include pattern pieces for lining and I used Style Maker Fabrics' Bemberg Lining

To keep with Outdoor Fun theme, I was inspired by this look on Evereve's Instagram.  A hoodie under a jacket is just so fun and I couldn't love the look more.  





Style Maker Fabrics had a great match for my plaid, a Terracotta Eco Sweatshirt Fleece, which is such a perfect sweatshirt fleece, cozy, warm and soft.  Terracotta not quite your color, no worries it comes in 12 colors, I am going to be order more!  The pattern for this is Chalk and Notch Page Hoodie


I made the view with the waistband and added an inch to the sleeves and 1.5 inches to the body.  Note this is cropped version and I am wearing it with my very high waist jeans.


The crop length is very fun and does work well with the jacket






I did make one change on the hood - I didn't want it lined, I wanted that fleece to show, the texture and color are perfect and needs to be shown off.  

To do this I cut a small strip of fabric and stitched it down to cover my center hood seam.  Just look at that fleece, it is so good!



Next I made another pattern piece for the front edge of the hood, enough for the casing and a bit extra just for looks.  Next time this extra could be a bit less

Another view 





Here is a look of the back of the hoodie.  Notice the cocklebur on the back?  Part of taking pictures in the woods!


My husband and I are spending lots of time outside these days and I am excited to wear my garments this fall. 

I hope everyone is enjoying fall weather, fall sewing and fall planning



Here is the full tour, check out all these amazing makes and look what is ahead.  Next stop  is Mainely Menswear  and I can't wait to see what Duane has made.




Disclosure  I am so happy to be part of  the Fall Tour and deeply appreciate the opportunity and the beautiful gifted fabric.  All opinions on this post are mine
