Planning My Fall and Winter Sewing Projects

Some of my bounty from a fabric swap I attended.

Recently my local American Sewing Guild Chapter (American Sewing Guild Denver) had a fabric, pattern and notions swap. It was on a Saturday and you could donate fabric or just come and pick up some fabric. I of course got there early and the above photo is a bit of what I took home. The amount of fabric was immense and a lot of it was from a professional garment sewer who is no longer in the biz. 

Now, I am planning my fall/winter sewing wardrobe. This is what I am thinking so far, but I haven't pulled too many patterns yet. Just thinking.

  1. A midi skirt in grey satin and a rust colored silk
  2. A coat of some sort
  3. Wool skirt (have the fabric already and it's pretty fabulous!)
  4. Pair of wool men's wear inspired shorts
  5. Need to make some sort of blouse/top
  6. Working on a dress with a sleeved bodice and a bias skirt

That's about it, but I'm sure I'll add more as I go. Always do.

What's your plans for the fall and winter months of sewing! Let me know on the blog!

  1. Hi! I’m brand new to this blog (blogs period!), so please excuse my stupid question. Where do we post our fall/winter projects you requested us to post? Here? Thanks!

  2. I’m new to custom-made clothing, so it’s baby steps for me. I live in Arizona where it’s either hot or heavenly comfortable all year long. I’m going to make several skirts that will make it when the weather is pleasant. I have a jacket that I made years ago, and I still like it. It needs to be altered, so I’ll do that and make a skirt to match it.

  3. My sewing list for just Sept
    1. three kids shorts for under daughter’s tunic
    2. two long pairs of pants for son
    3. hoodie for son’s PE uniforn
    4. hand bag for me
    5. two swim suits for daughter
    6. swim shirt for son
    7. halloween costume starts. Sigh
    8. to work on a pants sloper for me
