I so love the mustard vibe and the minute I saw this fabric, I knew exactly what I'd make, even if that meant copying the pattern envelope. We all do that sometimes, right?
So this Simplicity pattern has had my attention for a while. It is super stylish and there are three very cute, completely different things to make. I just wish I'd ordered more of the yellow as this stretch suiting would have been perfect for the wide legged trousers as well as the duster.
If you are counting, that is photo 2 with my eyes closed. Ugh.
The length of this is awesome. I am 5'7" and I think this is perfect. Check the length if you are taller/shorter or want a different look.
This fabric is very comfortable to wear. It has a nice stretch to it but retains its shape and I've worn this all day--no horrible wrinkles!

I also made the knit top out of another favorite fall combination: gray and white stripes. This is a ribbed knit and it performed just beautifully as I sewed with it. I had my fashion photographer take a close up of the neckline as I love how it finished off with this knit.
The pockets are also nice and deep, perfect if you don't want to wear a coat but need to keep your hands warm.
These fabrics appear to be sold out but there are so many other great choices on Fabric Mart's site! I hope you are enjoying sewing for the changing seasons as much as I am!
Thanks for reading!
