Fall Sewing Part 1: Dresses

Hey everyone! it’s been awhile since I talked about what’s going on in the beehive! I have been sewing lots of bags lately. I made a for pleats sake a while back and I am almost finished with a Noodle-head Super tote. I plan on using the super tote as my knitting bag! I am so excited to have a dedicated knitting bag again after always just throwing project bags into what ever purse i am using. I am also looking forward to trying out a few new patterns that I have purchased! So lets look at my fall sewing plan! 

 

 

The Painted Portrait Dress by Anna Maria Horner I plan on making this lovely pattern in a few dresses and tops for the fall! I’ve seen this pattern a bunch but I never really wanted to make one until I saw the lovely one that Christine Hayes made for her upcoming class!  I have three fabric choices running around in my brain!

  1. SO cute! I love the pattern that seems to frame a face (and flatter the figure) of the Painted Portrait tunic/dress. And how adorable is that firefly jar pattern, really whimsical and fun! Same thing with the Foxtrot, I love the autumn colors in it. But I think my favorite is the Acadia which already has beautiful colors and pattern and then the surprise when you notice there’s a face in there!

    1. I love the whole acadia collection. Tula pink makes some of the most amazing fabric around. It is so colorful and well thought out!

  2. Argh, I wish I was better at sewing!!! I have a machine and everything, but I’m sooooo scared to try patterns. You make the cutest things though, and I’m so jealous! I’m going to have to venture out of my comfort zone soon and just do it!

    1. You can totally do it! Seriously if you need a few pointers you can bring the machine over. I have tons and tons of flat surfaces in my studio.

  3. I made my way through college, in part, by sewing. I love that Firefly fabric – I’m more of a quilter these days, and I can envision a really lovely quilt built around that theme.
