The nights are getting longer and the weather is finally starting to turn cool, which can only mean one thing…fall is here! There’s nothing I love more than wardrobe planning for my favorite season, the season of long sleeves, closed toe shoes, sweaters & beautiful, rich colors. With that in mind I set to work on gathering images that reference the silhouettes, textures, and colors that I hope to include in my own handmade wardrobe this season. You can see everything I’ve pulled on my Fall / Winter 2016 Pinterest board here, as well as the sources for every item of clothing shown in this post.
This season I’m imagining an easy, yet put together, wardrobe for my everyday look. Loose fitting dresses that can be dressed up or down, oversized button-ups (as always), and lots of cozy knits. I also am planning a few updated basics, like silk or wool tees for layering. This means Archers, Scouts and Larks aplenty as well as a few versions of our upcoming fall pattern. The color palette contains all my favorite colors, so I’ll be on the lookout for fabrics in the near future.
I’m also planning on making a sweater or two for myself as well as another Tamarack. We’ll be releasing a printed version of the Tamarack soon which includes an update to add snap or button closures down the front, so obviously I need one of those!
My next step is going to be working out the exact pieces I plan to make and getting started on finding fabrics. I’m particularly excited for my fall wardrobe plans this season because I finally have a sewing setup at my house which means I’ll actually get some of this done!
Are you planning a fall wardrobe or sewing list? What are you most excited about sewing up? Any silhouettes you can’t get enough of? Fill me in!
