Fall into Love; 10 Sewing Patterns Perfect for Autumn – 2017

10 items to make for your autumn wardrobe!

In Ohio, the fall is a great time to wear those light sweaters, cardigans, jeans, leggings, sweater dresses and lightweight hoodies. It’s the time where the days are warm but the nights cool off to almost chilly! But it’s the best time of year to wear those staple layering garments. I love my jeans and a tee with a cute cardigan layered with a hoodie if needed. Thinking about the fall it makes me want to snuggle up for a haunted hay ride and drink pumpkin drinks!

I searched the internet high and low to find some amazingly simple yet cute patterns to get your fall/winter wardrobe started!

Top 10 patterns to make to wear in the fall/winter!

I have looked for my favorites, new and older patterns to put together a nice mix of clothing that can be paired in different ways. Dressed up or down depending on the fabric and accessories chosen!


Named – Kielo Wrap Dress

A great wrap dress is something that everyone girl needs in their closet. It’s a quick way to dress up or down depending on your shoes and accessories as well as your choice of fabric. I love the look of this wrap dress, it’s not a traditional look but will definitely turn some heads! 


True Bias – Hudson Pant

The Hudson Pant is the perfect fall pant! If you make it from a sweater knit it would be perfect for the cooler nights by the fire. These are a quick sew and look great on most body types!




What a fun way to spruce up a simple dress! I love the pintucks on this!  I can imagine this with a cute cardigan leggings and boots for those cooler nights! Perfect for work or play!



Closet Case Patterns – Charlie Caftan

This is the perfect day or night-dress! Made from a linen or Satin it would be stunning for a night out on the town! Knee or Maxi lengths give you a chance to make it fun or elegant!


Debbie Brooke Designs – My Dress

I was lucky enough to pattern test for Debbie Brooke Designs a few time, her patterns are fantastic and this one is so much fun! I will say this is still one of the dresses I recommend to my sewing students. It really is a fantastic pattern, directions are spot on! A staple garment that can be made as a casual or using a higher end fabric for a more expensive look. This is a quick sew and is lined. She has the option to make it as maternity as well which is so awesome!  Perfectly paired with a cardigan or a scarf, it’s great for any occasion!




Grainline Studio – Archer Button Up 

The Archer is a classic button up shirt. In the cooler months, these are perfect, can be made from silk chiffon, charmeuse, crepe de chine, cotton shirting, chambray, lightweight denim (like Art Gallery Denim.. oh so soft!) or flannel! Grainlines instructions are so easy to follow and the tips/tricks make your garment stand!


Sew to Grow – Fall into Love Cardigan

So I figured since I love cardigan’s and keep talking about adding them into the mix. I absolutely love this one! I have made a few in different knit weights, I even added pockets to a few!  Great pattern by one of my favorite Indie Designers, I have also been lucky enough to pattern test for Sew to Grow as well!



Sewaholic – Thurlow Trouser 

A great pair of pants is perfect for the cooler month, I love these Thurlow Trousers, I recently made a pair from denim purchased from Imagine Gnats! the perfect pant! I have more fabric to make a few more pairs, these will now be my go to pattern for pants! I didn’t do the welted pocket, I ended up adding traditional patch pockets on the back like you would see on a pair of jeans. Once you get the fit worked out, you will be stoked that you made these!


Christine Haynes – Piper Top

This super cute and mod top will be a perfect match to a few of the staples listed above. I love the funnel neckline and the sleeve options. This really could be the top of your dreams! All of Christine’s patterns are made with the new to advanced sewist in mind. Easy to follow and sizing really isn’t that hard to fit!


Made by Rae – Josephine Blouse & Tunic

I can not tell you how many Washi Dresses I have made, Rae’s patterns are easy to follow, easy to sew and fantastic finishing tips! This top is extremely versatile.  Tunic, Blouse or tank there are a few looks from one pattern. Depending on the fabrics you can dress it up or down and layer this top!
