Can you believe it! September is almost over. Where did the time go? Today I’m sharing my plan for
the fall season. Yes, this fall season which by the way is flying way faster
than I can put pieces together. I better get a move on it because this train isn’t
staying long. Here are a few patterns that I’ve placed on my to do list.
First up is the pretty Classic Pea Coat from
Burda’s 9/2015 #104. To complete this project, I’m taking tips from a well know

too, after seeing McCalls M7261 it was a

looks like from barely scratching the surface.
Finally, here is my wildcard – Burda’s 7/2015 #112 Zip-up Vest. This is
so darn funky, I just love it. It would be a nice addition to a chunky sleeve
sweater, talking about keeping it real with style and staying warm in Wisconsin.
With such an ambitious sewing plan, my video pattern reviews may be
combined and content heavy or short showcasing outfits of the day. I’ve set the
Bar… Let’s find out just how high it is as I’ll begin sewing this week.
Thanks so much for stopping and reading.
