Fall is here and winter is coming. I always think that finding clothes that are a perfect fit can be a pain. Countless unfit clothes and it could end up wasting money too.
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 change from following the trend to keep it simple and modest.
When I was in my twenties, I could buy all the clothes that are on-trend but actually I don’t know if I can fit into it. Especially when we’re purchasing through online shops.
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, be able to wear stuff that you actually like and suits you!
Below are 12 beautiful sewing projects, that are simple and can be used for Fall and Winter but also can be used every other day which is why I call it chic.
#1 Plaid Flannel Fall Tote Bag
It seems like plaid flannel is always trendy during the Fall season.
What about starting with sewing this trendy plaid flannel tote bag with faux leather, for a modern and classic look this Fall.
Courtesy of Anne, this project is totally worth it.
#2 Simple Stripe dress
My next sewing project is a DIY simple stripe dress, that is easy to make.
It is a perfect starting project for the sewing newbie.
The dress can be combined with leggings or jeans and a jean jacket will compliment everything nicely.
#3 Button front midi skirt
Okay, I know you will yell at me that this skirt is for Summer (based on the blog post)!
But… You can make it with thicker fabric with a red and black checkered pattern and combine it with a stocking and voila! You get yourself a cute skirt for work or hangout.
