Whether you are a seasoned seamstress or just beginning to make your own clothing, fall fabrics and patterns are sure to excite you. Knowing what to expect in sewing trends for the fall season will help you plan a wardrobe that is uniquely yours and suited to any occasion.
Working with clothing you have
Using the clothing you have can save you money and time as you transition from the summer season to autumn. For instance, if you have a great summer skirt you love, you can stitch up a lightweight jacket or blazer to wear with it as cooler temperatures arrive. Sew a shrug or poncho to wear over a summer maxi dress to keep away the autumn chill.
Fabulous fall fabrics
Faux leather is often a popular fabric finds in the fall and has a more natural leather look than previous faux fabrics of the past. Useful for sewing leggings, skirts, jeans, crop pants, or dresses, faux fabric will give you plenty of options for your fall wardrobe sewing.
Expect to see lightweight wools in neutral shades for fall sewing. Jacquard prints and fall florals are also appearing in the fall fabric line up. Knits and flannel are staple fabrics you will want to choose for constructing your fall wardrobe.
The colors of fabric
Look for plenty of fabrics in rich shades of chocolate brown and rust to welcome fall. Olive green is a big hit in fabrics and will look great when mixed with any shade of brown when sewing your fall wardrobe. Fun and light colors, such as sky blue and violet, are a few of the unexpected but pleasing colors you will see in the fall fabric line up.
