I bought a lot of patterns this weekend.
Not sure what fabric yet. It has soooo many pieces--I'm afraid I'll have to actually read the instructions, yikers. Every step. I want it to be super cute. I wish I had the perfect greige heavy but soft cotton... but I don't.
The jacket from this looked super cute for work--there was a photo of it on the big picture in the pattern book.
'Course, I don't have fabric for that yet, either. Could I pull off a colored blazer-like jacket, I wonder? Hmm...
This cardigan looks good, considering how often I wear long, open cardis... and I bought some grey knit on clearance to make it out of.
And--don't judge--look at the girl in the picture in the tan cropped version of these pants. Now, ignoring the fact that there's also a pajama version, couldn't these pants totally work for work? Out of a substantial enough fabric, of course. I have some issues not looking 20 years older than I actually am when I wear pants to work (I can't wear jeans, but there's no need to wear nylons and heels). Dunno what color. I usually wear ballet flats...
Oh! And I'm also very excited to be making one of Paradiso Designs's bags, for my mom!
That one I actually have all cut out and started. Making purses is not my usual thing, so I'm following all the instructions on that one, too! And it's going really well so far, and it's a lot of fun to see how simple steps put this super cool bag together really fast!
Anyway. I welcome any suggestions for using my new patterns! Do you have any great fall projects in the works?
