Fall Is In The Air

Still have a few summer projects in the works, it's past time to start working on my fall wardrobe.




At the top of the list are; a black and white hounds tooth coat. The fabric is a gift from Marji. This coat is right in line with the fall collection of Salvatore Ferragamo. Erica B. posted some of his fall collection on her blog. This UFO was started over a year ago. It's cut, ready to sew and would be the perfect alternative to the traditional trench coat. Vogue 1257 is also high on the list. I want to make this before the harsh winter comes. What's on your list?

A few months ago, I received the Pantone color palette for Fall 2011. I like phlox, deep teal, and coffee liqueur. You may see these colors in my fall wardrobe. The color report it below for your convenience.




Happy Sewing!

  1. Love the black and white hounds tooth. Can't wait to see the coat. A red trench coat with black piping is on my list. I also like teal and thinking about a wool knit dress teal.

  2. I am loving the houndstooth, too. I got the Pantone color palet and I am liking the those color choices too. I need to do a trench. I am thinking a basic beige or black with some wild piping and lining. Can't wait to see yours.

  3. I can't wait to see your new coat, this is such a traditional classic look and it will be great with accessories using the pantone guide for the colors.

  7. I love the houndstooth, I can see it on you already. The colours aren't my favourites this year, but I am seeing a lot of coral in the stores and it's starting to grow on me. I just bought a pair of teal shoes this week, so I'm good to go!
