Since August is a transitional month, I tried to plan projects for this month that fit the season.
Fall is definitely my favorite season for clothing, so I don’t mind diving in, but I did want to work on things I can wear right away.
For reference, see the last Wardrobe Architect post, in which I listed out my fall sewing plans and process. It really helped me focus on what to make.
Floral shirtdress shift
I’ve been wearing a wine-colored sleeveless shirtdress all summer long, and thought it would be a perfect use for this big, dark peony-patterned rayon that I have. I can wear it with tights and boots, put a sweater over it, and wear it basically all year round.
Rust silk camisole
I have this gorgeous rusty-wine colored silk that’s been in my stash for months. I’m going to make a Savannah camisole, trimmed in lace. I have some crazy ideas for incorporating an antique lace trim I have, so we’ll see how it goes.
What’s inspiring you guys this month?
