DIY Fall Accessories

Falldiy_medium

It’s finally felt like fall here which means that I can stop thinking about ‘hot weather clothing’ and start shifting my focus onto sewing up cozy jackets, long-sleeved shirts, and fabulous accessories. Oddly enough while surfing blogs over the weekend, I stumbled across this entry on “How to Make Fall Accessories” – not only were there some good tips on making your finished designs look professional, but there were fantastic (and new-to-me) resources as well. So, my question now is – what’s your first fall weather sewing project going to be?

At The Office: 4 New Women's Sewing Patterns

Fall_looks_medium

Do you ever have bittersweet “back to school” feelings when September comes? My mother used to take me and my sister school shopping, and while my sister would strike gold, I’d never be happy with what was there. So my mother and I would sew my clothes. Going to the fabric store was pure inspiration for me. Now that some of us aren’t dressing for school days anymore— we can still dress for the office right? Here are 4 office friendly patterns to play with.

From Fashion Week: Cynthia Rowley's Punch Bowl

Cynthiarowley_medium

During New York Fashion Week I had the pleasure of attending the Cynthia Rowley show in the main tent at Lincoln Center. Flirty with some hints of retro in the shape of mod-ish shift dresses and easy trouser-leg pants, Rowley kept it interesting with a recurring theme in the form of punched out circles and colorful circular cabochons, which adorned some of the more simple silhouettes. You can get a jump on the Spring trend and try the look for yourself on some of our classic patterns.
