I had hoped to be sharing finished items for my fall wardrobe, but things have gotten in the way. Instead, I thought I’d share one of my favorite things to do: Daydreaming with fabric and patterns.
One of the places I visit, if I can when I visit the Chicago area is Vogue fabrics. This place is an Aladdin’s Cave. They have a fantastic selection of fabric and often have designer roll ends (total gold!!) I always want to buy the whole store but have learned some restraint. The same as meal planning – go with a list that encompasses your fall wardrobe planning.
I like Ottobre Woman patterns. Their fit is consistent, and many pieces are designed to let the fabric shine.
My first item is a pair of jean-style pants in a nice neutral.
Simple Flattering Top
This is one of my go-to tops. It is so flattering and works great under a cardigan for fall.I have added a full bust adjustment to compliment my tremendous bosom. It’s a perfect top for any first timer to do an FBA .
A special piece that works day and night
One gorgeous piece of fabric to play with
The last piece of fabric was one of those – If I walk away, I’ll regret it. This fabric is so delicious and drapey. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. There is always the risk of buying too little or too much. I should have enough for a simple tunic that will let ht fabric show off.
Thank you for joining me for my fall wardrobe planning daydreams. Finger crossed that very soon I will be back to making incredible messes while incredible creations happen.
