I have a couple of very specific things on my Fall closet wish list! Northern Utah transitions pretty swiftly from Fall to Winter weather, so I better get on it! Hopefully these items will be useful through the Winter too.
The first is a long blush pink cardigan. I have several dresses and outfits that I think this item would be the perfect topper for, and I’ve seen many pretty examples on Amazon and Pinterest. I know the Helen’s Closet Blackwood Cardigan pattern is perfect, since I’ve made it so many times, and I’ll have to order a good sweater knit (maybe this one) and I think I can make myself one of these pretty inexpensively.
The second item I’d like in my Fall wardrobe is a sherpa vest! This is one of those things took a season for me to come around to, but right now I’m loving this look. I’ve pinned some pretty cute sherpa vest outfits to my style board and Hobby Lobby has the sherpa fabrics right now, in three colors and for a great price too. I’m thinking this pattern is perfect, although there are plenty of good ones. I’m pretty excited about this one!
Lastly, I don’t have patterns and fabrics picked out for this one yet, but I’d like some tunic length tops. I have a pair a really nice rayon ponte leggings/pants that I got from my last thrift store haul and I’d like some longer shirts to go over them (maybe even with my sherpa vest, like this!) I have plans for a long flannel shirt and I”d like to make a few like this too. Pattern suggestions are welcome!
Do you plan ahead for seasonal sewing? Or do you sew for the season you’re in. I think I kinda do both, but I’d like to plan ahead a little better. Problem is, I often don’t see holes in my wardrobe until we’re already into the season at hand. How about you?
