I’m slowly starting to put together my Fall wardrobe. I’ve been sewing a whole bunch for myself and the kids. I think I have a clearer vision of what I want and what I like which really helps my focus and determination. I don’t know if I’ll get it all done, but I think I started early enough to get the bulk of it done. Luckily, the kids don’t need a whole lot and I mostly need layers and warm items. Anyway, I finished a quilted vest and some more Hudson pants. (I’m also wearing my polka dot Union St. Tee (affiliate link) that I cut the sleeves off, so I’ve been wearing it all summer.)

I’ve been wearing these pants a ton already. I love them, and I love an extra day of not shaving. I love the Hudson pants pattern. I made these out of a slightly striped interlock fabric and black rib knit for all the details. I was worried that the fabric had too much brown color in it, but my sister and these pictures confirm that they are gray. They are a great basic comfortable pants. I love wearing the comfort of pajamas but looking like I actually tried to get ready.

The vest was inspired by the fabric. I got this pink quilted diamond-embroidered remnant at Joann’s just like I got Claire’s quilted vest fabric. I love the quilted vests I’ve been seeing on Pinterest. I don’t know if I’m behind or ahead of the trend, but I knew it would be a great layer to add to my wardrobe. It’s a little bit sporty, casual, and preppy. The remnant was really tiny so I had to to cut it out on the crosswise grain. I barely fit it all in. The inside collar is even pieced together because I didn’t quite have enough fabric. And the pockets are pieced together too.

I used the McCartney Jacket pattern that I won in a giveaway. (I’m planning on making a cute jacket soon; it’s already cut out!) I used a zipper up the front and white piping for all the edges. I really love the white piping. It was a lot of work, but it makes the embroidery pop.

I had a hard time deciding on the lining. I wanted to do a flannel lining to give it extra warmth. I was going to do some boring lining, but I LOVE this little town flannel fabric. It was also a remnant, and I’ve been saving it for Claire. But I love it and decided to use it for myself. It makes me happy every time I see it, and it’ll make me happy every time I wear it. The lining is so cute! I’m excited to accessorize with it all winter!
