My Sewing Mood-board - Autumn/Winter 2018

So knitting may be taking over my life right now, but I've still got my eye on some sewing plans now we're heading into a new season. I love sewing for Autumn and Winter, they are much more my seasons and I love layering up my me-mades. This year I'm hoping to tick off some sewing bucket list items like a faux fur leopard print coat, a polka dot denim jacket and some super snuggly pjs...

1. Leopard print is a neutral and in my eyes it goes with anything... I do already own a RTW leopard print coat but it's quite dark in colour and is a brushed fabric not faux fur or particularly warm. I'd love to make my own, perhaps with a baby blue or pink collar.

2. For one of my upcoming Spoonflower projects I'm making a polka dot denim jacket! I'm so excited about this one and really hope it's a successful project! 

3. Bring me all the snuggly coats! I've been eyeing up this eye catching fabric for almost a year and I think this might be the season I actually get some.

4. Plaid shirts are so good for layering. I've just finished my second Archer Shirt (I'll share on the blog soon) and I know I can see myself sewing couple more. 

1. If I don't make a denim Archer shirt, I can see myself making a denim shirt dress. They are so easy to wear and always look stylish. I'd love to add a touch of embroidery too.

2. I'm making my dream wrap dress this Autumn! I've got the most beautiful jersey fabric from Spoonflower and the leopard print is the nicest I've ever seen. I'm not 100% sure on the pattern yet, but this Vogue one is looking pretty good!

3. Seeing as I spend most of my time in pjs, I should actually make some for once! I made the Carolyn pjs a while back, and I'd love to make another set now my sewing skills have improved. I'm obsessed with this tattoo print fabric, another gem from Spoonflower. 

4. Continuing on from my love of pjs, the Stella hoodie and joggers from Tilly and the Buttons new book 'Stretch' have been on my lust list since it's release. I know it's not the chicest fabric, but I might cave and use a leopard print fleece for my first set!


I can't wait to get stuck into my Autumn sewing plans, especially my upcoming Spoonflower projects. But perhaps I don't need 3 coats or leopard print items on my to-make list? We'll see! 

Thanks for reading, pinups!
