I have now dusted off the sewing machine though and decided that it was time that I treated myself in the vogue sale.
My first purchase was this vogue coat which I wearable muslined alst spring:
The problem was though, I cut the pattern pieces out and want to make view B which is longer than the view A I made before. oops! You live to learn though so I was ok with parting with the sale price. My very favourite ever RTW coat - a red wool version from Next looks almost identical to view B and after 5 winters I doubt that it will last another. Now to find the perfect red wool!
My second purchase was this awesome DKNY dress from the new autumn collection:
I get the feeling that this could be either epic or an epic fail :-( haha. Either way I'm going to attempt this for my christmas dress this year and also in this colourway.
I found the RTW dress online
So these are my autumn sewing plans I have a few more lined up too but these are the two which I am hoping turn out epic!
Hope everyone is doing great!
