Fall Sewing Plans


Well here it is, September already! I didn't quite finish all my anticipated summer sewing but it's time to get moving on Fall sewing next. 

I have a couple of summer dresses that I am currently working on -- to be shared soon -- but after that it's the big switch-over to autumnal/winter sewing. I'm not as organized this year as I've been previously, but I'm basically sticking with my winter wardrobe outline that I set in September 2021. I'm not done with bright colours and suiting influenced silhouettes yet. 

I have a couple of items on my Make Nine 2023 that I'm planning to make soon, Butterick 5938 and Butterick 6127.

I'm also planning on Burda dress 103-03-21, and a Burda skirt & waistcoat set.

And I think a Fresco blouse by Studio Calicot (from my Make Nine) will be a great addition. 

Another blouse I really want to make is the Barbara from I Am Patterns. 

I'm sure I'll come up with more ideas and get distracted from my organized plans as always! But these are the items I'm hoping to finish by the end of the year. 

Do you make big plans or queue up your projects? I don't generally go beyond a handful but doing a wardrobe planning process has helped me both whittle down ideas and focus on fabrics. 


  1. I'm much too magpie to make sewing plans, but I admire those who can and do.

    1. Well, I can certainly *make* the plans but the follow-through isn't always quite there ;)

  2. Wow! You have some quite different designs there. They look a little exciting. It will be great to see them come to life!
    I have never planned a seasonal wardrobe, but this is inspiring.

    1. I'm not usually much of a planner but these ones with their interesting details really caught my attention so I want to help myself remember them! I really do need a couple of interesting blouses, so these are my hopefuls :)
