Autumn / Winter 2012 – inspiration

Autumn / Winter 2012 inspiration

I have been rubbish at sticking to sewing plans so far – easily distracted by new patterns, fabric, the weather…

So let’s see how I do this time – I have high hopes!

I cut out this jacket from Burda October 2012 yesterday, in a beautiful berry (as I believe we’re calling burgundy this season) wool boucle.

I am quite excited about this one!  Wish me luck.

The teal dress will be Cynthia Rowley Simplicity 2406, in teal stretch crepe.  I love this fabric and have had it for a year, thinking about the right pattern (which I found in a charity shop, last week).

The grey jacket /cardigan is also in production – not quite like this one, but asymmetrical with a large collar.  The pattern is from Textured Stitches by Connie Chang Chinchio.

The grey wool skirt will be (of course) another Kelly skirt.  I’m not sure about the cord skirt yet – either a Kelly or a Colette Beignet.

As for the shirts – absolutely no idea about pattern or fabric, but I love them.

These are all from Zara, and the black and white print is made up of tiny Zebra!  If only that were possible, but I will be on the look out for the right pattern, and any suggestions are much appreciated.

  1. I love your choices! The berry jacket is going to be gorgeous, as is the teal dress. As you can probably tell from my blog, they’re 2 of my favourite colours anyway!

  2. Nice! That green is just soooo pretty. Probably better to make one than buy one, bamboo apparently doesn’t have great recovery.

  3. What a fab wardrobe. The urge to buy the Kelly skirt pattern is almost overwhelming, I like yours so much, and now you’re going to make another! I’ve put it on my Christmas list – I will not buy any more patterns this year! I love teal, one of my favourites 🙂
