Pumpkin spice lattes, cool weather and gorgeous autumn colors are just around the corner and that means so is fall sewing!
My cha-cha skirt was the last summery type garment that I made for summer. I’ve been looking through pattern books, IG feeds and my own patterns in anticipation for fall sewing 2018. I think I”ve narrowed it down a bit. My big sewing project is going to be a duster. I have not found a pattern that I really like and don’t have the fabric either. It could be crushed velvet like this one:
Or, maybe a linen in this New Look version.
I also want to make one out of knit. For that I have the BurdaStyle pattern and I’m fairly certain on this one. Although I’ve seen some really nice indie patterns such as Named Patterns Esme Cardi/Duster.
So many decisions.
Here is a snapshot of my patterns and fabric choices. I like this mix. I have a mix of Big 4, Indie, BurdaStyle (both digital and traditional). Plus, what’s not shown is two knitting projects.
May I also suggest this duster by Paco Paralta of Barcelona? Paco is one of my favorite designers and his garments are always sophisticated. Vogue carries some of his line also. The description states that this duster is very loosely fitted, which often means going down a size or two. http://uniquedesignerpatterns.blogspot.com/p/patterns.html
