Well the whole month of September went by so fast I couldn’t keep up. I did mange to get a few thing done. Not much sewing, surprising seeing it was National Sewing Month. I had a few cosmetic bag orders and I did mange to make myself something. It’s the first thing I have made myself since I had put myself on a fabric embargo earlier this year. As soon as the set time had passed I ran out and got a few yards of Autumn themed fabric.
I was hoping to get a dress out off the fabric but I was short a yard and a half for the dress I wanted so I made a skirt instead. I love skirts and I have a lovely red sweater that would look lovely with the print. I made a lovely circle skirt(it’s my favorite skirt shape) a bit longer then I do for summer and was ready to wear. Problem..
It was still too hot to wear a sweater the whole month of September. The only time during the day that called for a sweater was early mornings and even I won’t dress up to take the dog for a walk. I waited day after day for the weather to cool down, then finally October 1st. A lovely cool day that called for sweaters.
It finally felted like fall outside.
So why not dress as Mother Nature’s third daughter Autumn while out running errands. I had to go grocery shopping and fabric shopping. Already saw fabric I want to get for Christmas.
Whipped out the new skirt just in time for the leaves to start changing. I can’t stay away from a floral/ foliage print.
Also made a some lovely Autumn accessories to wear. I had made a few golden Mum hair flowers with pine cones and acorns.
Hair flowers are available for sale Here.
I had a few leftover craft supplies from making hair flowers and decorating the house so I made a brooch.
Nothing is too crafty to fashionably wear.
Yorkshire even got in on the Autumn “photo shoot” more like jumping in to get my attention.
Well it’s now October and I’m getting ready to start costume work. I have Yorkshire’s and mine all sorted out and I can’t wait to get started. I also have a costume commission for a Four year old boy. I love doing children costumes, so I’m really excited about that.
