This year, fall fashion is all about the fabric. Fabulous furs, bright colors, mixed textures and patchwork pieces… we’re combining the unexpected to make clothing interesting. As designers and sewers, the options are endless when it comes to creating our own wearable works of art!

There’s no such thing as too much fur this season! Extravagant fur coats and fur accents are an autumn must. Colored furs on collars, cuffs or as a decorative trim add a modern touch to the traditional look.

Mod, 60’s inspired dresses are another fun fall trend. The short hemlines, retro prints and a-line skirts have a flirtatious appeal, but are still a great choice for school and work wear.

Turtlenecks: the nineties classic is officially back in style! The layered look creates a preppy, yet fashion forward feel. If you’re not ready to fully embrace a classic fitted turtleneck, try a slouchy knit cowl or tie-neck top to get a similar look.

Plunging V-necklines are popping up in a number of different ways lately. In addition to the sultry open neckline, we’re seeing V-necks sewn with contrasting panels or styled with eye-catching layers. The layering option allows you to modify this revealing silhouette for evening or casual wear.

    It seems like there is nothing new for Fall trends! I like the Chanel bomber jacket and the Valentino retro dress. In general I like the BurdaStyle patterns more than the runway stuff in this post.

    Orange seems integral to Fall 2014 attire. Love the lemon yellow in the one sweater photo!

    Since digital prints can make very interesting fabrics, I’d like one with slightly curled maple leaves of various tones of champagne, red, orange-coral, brown and yellow. It would be a feat of no-sleep in trying to collect actual leaves and stitching them into a dress. The digital print would bring the leaves and colours and I could use a Burda Style pattern to have fun with the fabric.

    The last trend: deep V-neckline is great for XL-sizes and full breasts, when using a top or so under it.
