One week ago I posted a fall wardrobe picture, with little fall color... But what a difference a week can make in the North Woods. So even though this outfit is not part of this years fall sewing challenge I had to post a picture to show you our developing fall color.
I am not a participant in the Self Stitched September Challenge although I applaud the efforts of the many women who are. I just might be able to pull off the goal of wearing a self stitched item for everyday in September...a worthy goal, but the idea of having to post all those pictures terrifies me. That's a lot of work.
This outfit is self stitched though.
The dress is a Vogue easy options #8233(now out of print apparently). made from a bargain buy at JoAnns.
My mom was with me on that day and insisted I purchase this fabric for myself. My mother has never been wrong about these things, so I have learned to listen to her prodding.
The jacket is by a favorite instructor of mine, Claire Shaeffer and is offered through Vogue, # 8333
A few years ago I taught a tailored jacket class and this was my sample. Its made from a wool crepe. My only frustration with this jacket is the hair canvas I used for interfacing was stiffer then it should be. I sold all of the appropriate weight to the students and tried to make do.....never do that when you are investing the time it requires to hand tailor a jacket.
That's my tip for the day - lol
Are you enjoying your Fall weather, or for my friends and family on the other side of our fair planet...your spring weather?
What is your favorite season to sew for?
