Even though the weather here is still warm (and hot some days), I've found myself thinking about what I'd like to make for my Autumn wardrobe.
I've been Pinning a few things to my Autumn Wardrobe Ideas Pinterest board, and thought I'd share a few of them with you.
One look I'm really keen on is a floral dress topped with a chunky cardigan, something like these.
Ok, so there's no cardigan in the third one, but isn't the dress pretty? I like the chunky cowls in the first two photos as well.
I've bought some floral viscose to make one dress, possibly a dress length Mathilde.
And I love this fabric by Rebecca Bischoff. It's Blythe Roses in the Sunset colourway. I think this would look lovely as a Colette Laurel or something similar.
I also have a couple of cardigan patterns picked out.
The one on the left is Meridien by Joji Locatelli, and on the right is Storm Mountain by Heidi Kirrmaier, both available on Ravelry. I've actually started on Meridien in a lovely violet wool/nylon mix yarn. I also have yarn that would be suitable for Storm Mountain.
The other look I really like, which might be more wintery, is a black leather flared or A-line skirt.
I actually have a flared black "pleather" skirt that I bought last year, but I've lost a bit of weight and I think it will be too big this year - it wasn't exactly tight when I bought it. I don't really have a pattern in mind yet, I might even try and draft one myself based on my existing skirt.
I've also got plans for another coat this year, it will be this Burdastyle one, in navy wool/cashmere/poly blend.
Have you started thinking about Autumn/Winter projects yet? I'd love to know what you're planning.
