6 Fall Sewing Must-Haves with Allie Olson

We hope the August/September installment of Clothes Minded got you in the mood for fall sewing – it worked for us (and we’ll be sharing our plans later this month)! In that installment, IndieSew.com’s Allie Olson shared her tips for creating the ultimate fall wardrobe. She joins us today with her 6 fall must-sews…and they’re good ones!

Every fall I find myself reaching for the same garments and sewing up multiple versions of my tried-and-true (aka TNT) sewing patterns.

Bonn Shirt by Itch to Stitch

Tops: Archer Button-up and Bonn Shirt

Both patterns fit well and look pulled-together. My Archers tend to be more casual, sewn in plaid shirtings. I have a few printed crepe Bonn Shirts that look a bit dressier.

Seamly Wrapped Cardigan

Cardigan: Seamly Wrapped Cardigan 

My navy blue rayon spandex version is constantly in rotation. I wear it every time I fly because it feels like being wrapped in a cozy blanket.

Ginger Skinny Jeans by Closet Case Patterns

Jeans: Ginger Jeans

My skinny Ginger Jeans are worn at least twice per week, with button-up shirts and dressy blouses. (A few Sew News staffers have also sewn Gingers!)

Lander Pants by True Bias

Trousers: Lander Pants 

A pair of canvas or twill Lander Pants is an awesome way to take elevate a fall outfit. I love their vintage vibe!

Lonetree Jacket Sewing Pattern by Allie Olson

Jackets: Lonetree Jacket 

My army green twill version gets a ton of wear, layered over jeans and button-up shirt. (Stay tuned….we *MAY* have an upcoming sew along in the works for this pattern!!!)

Accessories: Fringe Scarf

I find myself wearing a fringe blanket scarf a few times a week for added warmth. I use the How to Sew a Fringe Scarf tutorial on Indiesew, which takes just 30 minutes.
