September: Outerwear


I was rooting for Scraptember but it seems Jen (@makerheart) has big plans for a jacket or a coat or whatnot. (That means you have time to amass more scraps in your bin(s) until Scrapvember. bwhahahaha)

So yeah. Tackle that jacket or coat project and you'll be ready for the fall.

We've got a sweet sewing friend, Gwyn (she's @clever_colleen) that wants to share her favorite fabric with the world. She's offering up 2 yards of "The Best Fabric Ever" to be given away this month. She says-

My plans? Not entirely sure yet. I do know I do have the materials for at least one Halifax hoodie that I've been neglecting to actually make.


Recap!

A slower month for Sewing Together means I can actually tackle a round-up.


Asheley of @terrapinnasews was our winner with her Halifax hoodie.

Michelle of @sewjourners shared a sneak peek of her fall Wiksten Kimono with us.

My whole heart is in this project, like nothing I've ever sewn before. I was responsibly making my fall plans and then BOOM. I saw the #WikstenKimono that @vacilandoquilting made and I absolutely had to drop everything in true creative planner style. I found the dreamiest linen viscose blend from @PDXsewingstudio for my first because the boiled wool in this color is out of stock everywhere. I was going to make a wool version later, but after wearing this #WIP I don't know if I will. These two fabrics together are just magical, I cannot put into words how amazing they are in softness, drape, richness, breath-ability and warmth. Everything you could want in the perfect fall layering piece or just throw-on-in-the-house-and-feel-like-a-million-bucks piece. I was able to source all my supplies from #PDXSewingstudio, the copper linen/viscose, Ikat direct from Mumbai and the paper pattern which is worth every penny just in the packaging and booklet alone. (You all know I have weak spot for a beautifully designed paper pattern) I am unbelievably excited to wear it and yet I am taking my sweet time on all the details, cutting slowly, finishing every single raw hem, copying Laura's pocket idea. The whole process is delightful when working with such amazing fibers. I am in my studio every second I can because it's calling my name, and that's way more mystical than I am comfortable with so I'm going to leave it at that. #sewphotohop seasonal. . . . _______________________________ #linenviscose #Ikat #fallsewing #thedailyseam #sewersgonnasew #madewithfabric #seamstresslife #sewingisselfcare #tallstyle #thecreativegrid #instasew #sewingismytherapy #creativeoutlet #millenialsewing #fashionsewing #waketomake #linenlove #sewinspired #letssewthistogether

Sonya at @handmadebymrsk shared a scrumptious cardigan that I’d love for myself right about now. Also that rib fabric! <3

And Erin, @vinthillknits, stunned us with her recreation of a favorite rtw jacket. AMAZING, Erin.

As for Jen and me, Jen teased us with a glimpse of a cape she made earlier in the year, while sharing her progress on a coat in her stories.

I completed a Halifax hoodie plus 4 new patterns!
