2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

August 29, 2015

TRULY, IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT...

...Is anyone else out there starting to have thoughts of brilliantly colored falling leaves,


crisp cool morning temperatures and most importantly of all - pattern selections for fall sewing?  I know that I am!  Truly, it was love at first sight when I first laid eyes on this flirty new McCall's offering.
I have GOT TO HAVE this same aztec print in pontederoma.  I know it exists.  All I've got to do is  find out where to order it from.  Soooo, if you've seen it, please comment to point me to it.  Love this colorway and print.   However, I am also visualizing this  as the perfect LBD.  Thank you McCall's Pattern Company and your designers for coming up with this cute little number.  This WILL BE
one of my main dresses this fall.

And yes, this selection will also be mine


'
You'd better bet it will!  This in Black would make quite a statement, although this Marsala is speaking quite loudly to me.  Please point me to a (not to light, nor too heavy) weight sweater knit.  Oh, oh this would also be gorgeous in Gray.

And isn't this the cutest little vest you've ever seen?
Oh yes it is.  What about in Mustard, or Chocolate, or Pantone's fall namesake Oak Buff to make this the perfect little Fall accent piece.  I think it would look quite classy layered over a mock turtleneck sweater worn with skinny legged jeans and riding boots - oh yes it will. 

And this crossover beauty made up in just the right jewel toned knit would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe - But made in black would be just as perfect.

These four pieces look super easy to make, would pair up just fine with existing pieces in my closet and give me a great jump start on Fall/Winter sewing.  What interesting plans do you have for your Early Fall Sewing...
