Hello Fabric Friends,
What's your favorite season? Mine has always been Fall! Growing up in Minnesota I couldn't wait for the hot summers to be over and the cool crisp breeze to come, which meant it was time to break out the boots and leggings. It also meant creating outfits with layering pieces like scarfs and cardigans. There is nothing better than a perfectly balanced layered look!
Below I share great sewing patterns to add to your to sew list for Fall. Adding these great pieces to your closet will have you perfectly prepared for what the Fall Season has in store!
Let’s start with the ultimate topper to any outfit in fall, scarves!! Not only do they look cute they also serve as a great layering piece to keep you nice and warm. We love making our scarves in AGF Rayon to make nice lightweight scarves that won’t add to much bulk to our outfits. If you are looking for your scarf to be extra warm and cozy try AGF knit.
This oversized button up with extended shoulders looks so cute tied in a knot or tucked in for a more polished look. Pair this blouse with your favorite jeans and roll up the cuffs for a casual look. This blouse acts as a great layering piece, I love wearing oversized button ups over basic dress or in place of a cardigan.
Layering the perfect outfit can take a bit of playing around but with the Cropped Jacket by Named layering becomes super easy for any fashionista to master. The inverted pleat at the back makes this jacket effortless to wear and the boat neck with rounded corners is perfect for showcasing the décolletage.
Another great feature this jacket has is the ¾” sleeve with dolphin hem which makes it perfect for adding stacks of bracelets or a timepiece and some bangles.
Here is another great version of a button up shirt with more details you can choose add. It has two great options to choose from, a loose-fitting button-up shirt or a knee-length shirt dress. The front pleat detail is super structured yet playful and the three-piece sleeve with the middle piece that continues up until the collar is perfect for using two different fabrics. We used our AGF Linen mixed with “Adobe Clay” Solid sooth denim! They make such a dreamy combo!
Ok! A look is never finished without a bag! The Locked Tote is perfect for being prepared for the days that never seem to end. We all led busy stressful lives and not having enough handbag space shouldn’t be one of them! This spacious tote has a cute front flap pocket that is perfect for keeping all the most used items throughout your day! This bag is extremely functional yet will bring together any outfit you decide to put on! We made our tote with prints from Artisan Fabrics mixed with AGF Denim and faux leather.
Creating a staple wardrobe would never be complete if we didn’t talk about super soft leggings made with AGF Knit and of course an asymmetrical long tunic to pair it with.This ensemble makes you look nicely put together but also feel comfortable and confident throughout your day. The tunic is made with “Tin Tint” AGF solid knit which is a nice light neutral grey. The leggings are made with the “Become One Antique” knit print! Spice up your leggings by using a fun geometric print!
Have fun layering this fall season and I hope you add some of these outfits to your wardrobe. Make it your own and style it to your liking. To get great tips on how to simplify your wardrobe check out this great blog post by Bonnie Christine!
