Fall is in the air...
October...that really snuck up on me.
The temps have dipped into the 70's (downright chilly after our 100+ summer) here in sunny San Diego which means our version of Fall is just around the corner. Of course, as soon as I even thought of Fall, I thought of a Fall wardrobe. There's no "new wardrobe" budget in our house so this means I get to plan sewing projects. Geez, what a chore. :)
My first Fall 09 project is this little jacket from Chic & Simple Sewing. The fabric is a cotton/poly blend with a nice body to it that I bought at my local discount fabric store (Yardage Town). The trim and tie belt will be made with the Joel Dewberry print hung on the shoulder. And if I don't totally screw it up, I'll post a finished picture at some point.
By the way, I'm still on the fence about the Chic & Simple book, but since it's bought and paid for I'll try to get some outfits out of it. I did get this dress that I've lived in for the summer - well worth the time. And, if you live in the San Diego area, the no-frills Yardage Town is a must-see. Not only do they have all the essentials and great prices, the ladies who work there actually sew and are incredibly helpful.
Hopefully, Fall is inspiring you in some way this week. Have a great Weekend! Pin It
