over the past few weeks i’ve noticed a trend…one i have no hopes of being a part of. bloggers and instagrammers are posting lovely inspiration boards with their fall sewing plans all laid out. pictures of the patterns pinned right up there with swatches…and even a few have gone so far as to add accessories and shoes to complete their looks. i too have an inspiration board. one that doesn’t get updated nearly as often as i would like, but sadly there are no neatly organized plans for fall sewing.
i tend to “dream” about an upcoming season and what i might make. in spring it’s the trench coat (floral perhaps?) and then comes fall and i start thinking about that wool coat (the one i think about each and every fall). am i the only one who doesn’t have a PLAN?? i wander through a fabric store and when something hits me i take it home.
in just a few short weeks i will be attending fall quilt market…more on that coming soon…and i’ll need clothing. the designs must be specific due to the work i’ll be doing there. so today i rummaged around in the stash and came up with a few ideas of my own. they’re not etched in stone, although i’d better be getting busy since the days are flying past and i’ll be leaving in about 2 blinks!
may will become one of our soon to released patterns. a floral corduroy that struck me last fall and has been waiting for my inspiration to catch up.
another lemon squeeze cardigan? please. brown wool suiting. light enough for comfort and to wear over a sweater. no, i do not know which sweater!!!
maybe a tunic from another designer…one i’ll be working with…using this unique print.
just hope no one tries to scan those barcodes!!
so i guess i have the beginnings of a plan after all. who knew?? gotta run post it on my inspiration board!!
