12 Chic Sewing Projects for Fall and Winter

Fall is here and winter is coming.

I always think that finding clothes that fits perfectly can be difficult to find. I’d prefer finding a needle in a haystack, if you ask me!

Since I’ve always a fan of sewing, today I want to share with you these 12 gorgeous sewing projects that you can try for Fall or Winter.

Being a summer girl, I always dread the coming of winter. I would pile up a couple of clothes to keep me warm and most of the time it does not look stylish (yep, that’s me).

I don’t know about you but as I’m getting older, I do realize that my style changed from trend follower to keep it simple and modest.

When I was in my twenties, I could buy all the clothes that are trendy but nowadays I don’t know if I can fit into it, especially when I’m purchasing online

You can search for clothes endlessly at Macy’s but you will never find a style or size that suits you (been there, done that!).

So, why not try sewing your own clothes? And finally find the Holy Grail: Be able to wear stuff that you actually like and suits you!


Below are the 12 beautiful sewing projects that are simple and can be used for Fall and Winter


Or you can also use them every other day, which is why I call it chic (for all occasions).
