Our Top Pattern Picks of the Month!

It's that dreaded time of year when the sun goes away and the rain comes to play instead. We thought we'd put together some of our top Autumn pattern picks, to get you inspired for the September and October season! We have so many to choose from, it was super hard to narrow it down, but I'm sure these wardrobe staple choices will get your sewing juices flowing! Scroll on to see! 


Sew Liberated - Arenite Pant

The Arenite Pant is the luxuriously deep-pocketed, slouchy trousers of your dreams. Incredibly versatile and amazingly cosy, you can wear these high-waisted trousers for date night, in the office, or as pajamas. The pattern includes three leg finishing options – a knit cuff, an elasticated woven cuff, or a dressier hem. Learn to sew French seams, flat-felled seams and a comfortable, non-twist elastic waistband for a made-to-last, beautifully crafted wardrobe staple. This is available as a paper & PDF pattern!

Our top three fabric picks for the Arenite Pants would be: 
1. Ochre in Rayon for super swishy, drapey pants!
2. Showering Dots in Tencel 
3. Soiree Leaf Trail in Rayon 


Megan Nielsen - Jarrah Sweater

With so many variations, you could make multiple Jarrah sweaters! The Jarrah is a loose fit drop shoulder sweater which features a crew or funnel neckline, two sleeve options and four hem styles. Sometimes an emergency jumper is all you need on an evening, and we think this is the perfect one! 

Our top three fabrics pick for the Jarrah Sweater are:
1. Brushstrokes in Grey & Silver Sweatshirt Knit by Crafted Nature  
2. Plain Organic Sweatshirt Knit by C.Pauli 
3. Stripes in Blue and White Organic Knit by Cloud 9 

You can't go wrong with a classic shirt, but what we love about this one, is the gathered back! A simple, but effective detail! The Archer Button Up is a loosely fitting button up shirt with long sleeves. View A has angled cuffs and a back pleat at yoke. View B has straight cuffs and a gathered lower back detail. Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, setting sleeves, continuous button plackets, adding a shirt collar and buttons & buttonholes. 

Our top three fabric picks for The Archer Shirt are: 
1. Crowded Faces in white Cotton Lawn by Lady McElroy
2. Fashion Forward Cotton Lawn by Lady McElroy

True Bias - Shelby Dress & Romper
