Fall Jackets

Morning Dew in My Fall Garden

Fall is my favourite time of year.

I enjoy the cooler air and the change in energy.

Fall sewing is so satisfying too, especially if you like jackets.

An Easy Jacket

The Zip Front Jacket #201 is hands down, my favourite easy jacket. I've made it out of every fabric imaginable from fleece to suede. It fits the bill for casual, business or dressy occasions. Here, I am wearing the Zip Front Jacket made in wool boucle, faux fur and dupionni silk. You may notice that there's no zipper in either the wool or silk jackets. Sometimes you just know you'll never zip up, so why bother with the extra work!

Worn beneath the boucle and the silk Zip Jacket are two of my favourite basics, the Pullover from Sweater Twin Set #102 and Flat Front Pant #601. Under the faux fur jacket, I'm wearing Tuxedo Wrap Vest #150 and Jeans #605 - both pieces in pleather.
