Fall might be my favourite season for fashion.  Sure, it doesn’t have the relief of Spring or the bright colours of Summer, but it certainly makes up for it with cozy fabrics and rich hues.  I love wearing tights, boots, and scarves too so that helps.  I have so many sewing plans for this autumn season, including a couple of entries into Sewing Indie Month.

I’ve already set aside many fabrics for this adventure, but I just received Blackbird Fabrics fall fabric lineup in my inbox this weekend – I might have to make some adjustments!  As usual, it’s patterns, patterns, and more patterns!  I do have some plans to make a couple of solid staples, but who knows….maybe they will end up as patterns in the end.

I’ve also got two makes lined up for Sam, he deserves some handmade clothing too, right? After all, he does take such lovely photos for the blog.

So gratifying to see things all lined up this way!

I should start Storyboarding my projects in some way like this (though I’d never be brave enough to publicly pre-commit to them on a blog!) so that I can encourage a little positive thinking and planning. You’ve got me excited for blustery fall days, warm drinks, cool crisp nights, and all the lovely colours that fall brings.


This looks like a great plan! I can’t wait to see everything! Those new Blackbird Fabrics are gorgeous – I want a piece of every one of them.

Right? I honestly can’t choose!
