Fall Makes Round-Up

Hello everybody!

It’s time to share my fall makes round-up with y’all. Fall was such a productive season for me. My sewing skills are also improving with each project which is so exciting!


Hemlock Tee – This is a free pattern by Grainline Studio which I hacked into a dress. It is such a great pattern for beginner sewers. I used a knit fabric I had in my stash from over a year ago.


McCalls 7429 – This twist-front dress was such a blast to make! The fabric was a gorgeous winter jersey from Fabricville. My review for the pattern and fabric can be found here.


McCalls 7566 – I used the bodice from M7566 pattern to make an African print maxi dress for my sister. I made adjustments to the neckline and used fabric I brought from a trip to Ghana. I usually list some in my Etsy shop.


York Pinafore – Paired one of my favorite turtleneck sweaters with my hacked York Pinafore pattern by Helen’s Closet. The gorgeous navy teal mid-weight linen fabric is from Blackbird Fabrics.


Twist Knit Dress – I replicated one of my favorite RTW twist tops and made it into a dress!

Shoreline Boatneck top and Tillery Skirt – Both patterns are from Blankslate patterns. I made zero modifications to the top but hacked the skirt into a wrap skirt. The ‘many faces’ knit fabric and rust denim are both from Fabricland Canada.


Plaid matching set – I made this vibrant yet classic matching set using fabric from Minerva Crafts. I used a RTW as a pattern for the jacket and the Charlotte Skirt pattern from By Hand London for the skirt. My review will be available soon on Minerva’s blog.


Burda 6463 – I made this classic blazer using a houndstooth suiting fabric and paired it with a turtleneck top I made using Megan Nielsen’s Rowan Tee. My review can be found here.


Butterick 6244 – Of course I had to make this gorgeous B6244 cascading coat again this year! Love it, one of my favorite patterns of all time. My previous review can be found here.


Hemlock Tee – This is obviously a fav! See hemlock tee info provided above in my first photo.


McCalls 7630 – I made this beautiful ruffle sleeve top using crinkle linen from Blackbird Fabrics and paired it with my Charlotte Skirt.


Suki Kimono – This African Print kimono was one of the first things I made when it began to get cooler. My favorite this about it is the striped lining I used. The Suki Kimono pattern is by Helen’s Closet.


Charlotte Skirt + Rowan Tee – I blogged about this a couple of months ago here but it is definitely worth a shout-out! Love it!

  1. Love what you did with the Blank Slate Tillery Skirt (frill added) – did you write anything on how you hacked the original pattern? Regards, Sandra (Australia)
