As many of you know, last week I guest pinned for The McCall Pattern Company. Usually, as fashion transitions from one season to the next and also with sewing, I get overwhelmingly excited. Sure, there are always basics for the new season that I want to sew. But I also like to add in certain colors, fabrics and style trends. When I was granted a reason to pin instead of just my random pinning, I really started to see my personal trends developing.
Who knew I needed velvet in my life?! Velvet is one of those luxurious fabrics that I never even think about until it's holiday season. But wouldn't that gorgeous velvet blazer simply look amazing just with jeans and boots? I think so. And a black stretch velvet bodysuit, paired with a full midi skirt? I'm thinking to die for! And the richness of the blue wide leg pants? Yes! So velvets will be on my fabric shopping list.
Another fabric that just came out of nowhere and wasn't on my radar is wide wale corduroy. I see corduroy every fall, but I never think to purchase it. And I actually own a RTW brown wide wale coat. I love the asymmetrical wrap skirt, the flared pants that are so 70's and the trench coat is amazing.
I thought I was over blanket coats since I've made a couple. But I guess I'm not! Not only is this one of the quickest coats you can make, they're so easy to wear.
So, Butterick 6244 is currently on my to-sew list.
