I know I'm not the only one thinking about fall. This weekend I picked up this Fall Fusion magazine at Joann. It's filled with a lot of fall sewing inspiration. As a bonus, it tells you the pattern number(s) and even the fabric they used (Joann fabric of course) for each outfit.
I love this work outfit. I've been afraid to sew pants. However, I have been training for a triathlon (in two and a half weeks) and as a result I have been holding my pants up with safety pins. I really need to suck it up and make some or buy a new pair.
This dress is from Simplicity 3622, view D. I bought the pattern intending to make view B. Now I am thinking I might be making view B and D.
Is it just me or is Joann's knit fabric selection getting better? I actually passed up this fabric over the weekend, but if it's still there when I go back I am going to grab it up.
I'm not sure I like this print (actually, I'm certain), but I love the pattern, Simplicity 3678. This view in particular, view A, can be worn through the rest of summer and into fall. I've had this in my stash for a few weeks. It's near the top of my to do list. Speaking of, time to work on making that list shorter...
