Autumn Outfit

There are a number of patterns that I have been waiting a while to be able to make.  Some more simple than others, but the desire is there all the same.

Over the Easter weekend, I began making an outfit that has been in my imagination for a while.  I knew I wanted to create a coat and pants set from particular fabrics I already had in my stash.  I've had some burnt orange cotton blend that I figured would be the perfect weight for an in-between season coat, and some white cotton duck that would be great for pants.  It was just a matter of deciding on a top.  The coat doesn't allow for the top to be seen, so I was happy to opt for a simple cotton knit tee that would be comfortable for the warmth of the Autumn days.

I have always been terrified of buttonholes as I am all to aware that they are the final step between a garment being complete and a garment being ruined.  I was very brave, I feel, as I not only did one, but four buttonholes on the one garment!  They all worked, they all lined up and they are all the right size! Phew!


The Empire Peacoat, Bootleg pants and cap sleeve t-shirt are all made to patterns found at www.pixiefaire.com

Thanks for popping by to see what I have been creating.
