Fall sewing

I know I'm not the only one thinking about fall. This weekend I picked up this Fall Fusion magazine at Joann. It's filled with a lot of fall sewing inspiration. As a bonus, it tells you the pattern number(s) and even the fabric they used (Joann fabric of course) for each outfit.

I love this work outfit. I've been afraid to sew pants. However, I have been training for a triathlon (in two and a half weeks) and as a result I have been holding my pants up with safety pins. I really need to suck it up and make some or buy a new pair.

This dress is from Simplicity 3622, view D. I bought the pattern intending to make view B. Now I am thinking I might be making view B and D.

Is it just me or is Joann's knit fabric selection getting better? I actually passed up this fabric over the weekend, but if it's still there when I go back I am going to grab it up.

I'm not sure I like this print (actually, I'm certain), but I love the pattern, Simplicity 3678. This view in particular, view A, can be worn through the rest of summer and into fall. I've had this in my stash for a few weeks. It's near the top of my to do list. Speaking of, time to work on making that list shorter...


  1. thanks for the post ,its very interesting to see those patterns done up in fall fabrics.I'm in Ireland so no Joanns so probably would never have seen this magazine.I love the white pinstripe dress,I've filed that idea and pattern for future reference!thanks Eithne

  2. The garments in the magazine actually look good. Not like the stuff I see in the Joann flyer. And I love that leafy print knit as well.

  3. Love that! What pattern is that red jacket? I love it!

  4. Hi Adrienne. The red jacket is Simplicity 3845 made from sportswear corduroy.
