My Fall Wardrobe Plans

The fact that the temperatures are still in the high 80’s and 90’s here in Toledo cannot suppress my basic bitch excitement for grandpa sweaters, plaid flannel, witchy vibes, pumpkin spiced everything…all of the fall, y’all!


As a matter of fact, I’ve already started my first sewing project in months and it’s a fall-ready piece that I am beyond excited to wear…despite the fact that even trying it on makes me sweat while I wait out the last of summer in my hot box of a craft room. I’ve also got 2 yarn work projects on my hook and needles (1 knitting, 1 crochet) so I guess you could say that the cold weather craft season has officially commenced!

So, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my fall wardrobe goals with you guys today to help spread the seasonal cheer. Because we all know, Halloween is the best holiday of all times and, indeed, the most wonderful time of the year. First up, let’s talk about the projects I’ve already started working on:

The Jessica Dress from Mimi G Style in this snuggly flannel from (gifted). My idea behind this make is to wear it as a transitional piece with jeans, and maybe a long sleeve top underneath. I can’t wait to show you the finished product!

I started making the Mariner’s Cap by Two of Wands a few months ago but set it to the side once summer weather made holding any yarn a totally sweaty and unbearable experience. I’m so excited to pick it up again, especially since I think this yarn that I chose is going to match my Jessica dress perfectly (and also happens to be my favorite color)!

I am just about done with the yoke of this beautiful Rosebud Raglan from Knits’N’Knots and I am so obsessed! I’m using the same yarn pictured in the pattern photos (this one). I’ve actually used this exact same yarn, color and everything, on a different cardigan about a year ago and it is so squishy and soft and I am beyond excited to have another sweater worked up in it.

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1598878911151_19896 .sqs-gallery-block-grid .sqs-gallery-design-grid { margin-right: -20px; }

There’s also a few pieces I’ve started daydreaming about I cannot wait to get started on for my fall wardrobe. The one I am drooling the most over has got to hands down be this Sabrina Spellman inspired #lewk. I just bought this heavyweight flannel that is luxuriously thicc and cozy. I think It’ll work up nicely as a Ness Skirt from Tilly and the Buttons. How adorable will that be?!

#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1598878911151_25243 .sqs-gallery-block-grid .sqs-gallery-design-grid { margin-right: -20px; }

I also am in need of something cozy for chilly grey days spent lounging around the house. I used this copper colored tencel twill from Blackbird Fabrics on my York Pinafore and it’s so swishy, yet durable I think it would be great for playing with my kid or doing some work around the house. I’m still debating on whether I want to try it in a Zadie Jumpsuit, or this adorable Lounge Set from Peppermint Magazine. Which one would you pick?

As soon as I’m done with my beanie, I am casting on this Campfire Sweater from Darling J’Adore. I already have a few skeins of this cozy AF Buttercream yarn and I am here for allllllll the hygge vibes this combo is giving off.

I have been thinking alot about my style and the clothing in my closet these days because of my curated closet journey. Although I’d ideally like to make the majority of my clothing, I’m only one person and there’s only so many hours in the day. One thing I’d like to try this season is incorporating more vintage items into my everyday style. Since I’m new to vintage, I think I’d start with a couple of staple pieces, like this chambray shirt, silk hair bow, or knitted sweater.

Well, that’s all of my wardrobe plans for fall so far! What styles are you trying out for the next season?

Happy Making!
