Fall trends & fall sewing

Aack! I’m conforming to the marketers! It’s august 9th and I’m thinking fall!


Okay, let’s take a step back. What I still really want to sew this summer (but may not get to it) are two patterns from the Weekend Sewing book – the little girl’s sundress and the Weekender Sundress for mama. What I need to sew is a new diaper/mama bag (my Laura design) and a sling and bag for our La Leche League silent auction.  I’ll also make the Laura bag for that, too. Though I am considering the Annie reversible tote as well, since I have to redo that pattern itself, I think. I’m thinking of making it in a bigger size, too, wider and taller, more of a very large tote. So maybe offer it in two sizes – the purse size and the diaper bag/tote size.

Yeah, I really DO need to sew bags right now. Bags and slings. Another cousin is expecting, and I’ll make her a sling and nursing cover.

Aah so my summer sewing didn’t quite all happen, but it IS still summer!

And now, let’s think ahead – several pieces from Christine Jonson’s collections – the Travel Trio One, a reversible sleeveless wrap top (can be worn over a tee or under a sweater), the shirred turtleneck with nursing changes, and ruana. A reversible wrap skirt.

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
