A First For Autumn.

Well I have finished my first item for the autumn season. This was the pattern I went for :

It was a lovely gentle ease into my new dressmaking regime. I really did enjoy making it and it took no time at all! I can also say that being a 80s pattern that I am closing the gap in the Sewing Through The Decades Challenge! The fabric is a really soft , actually a flannel sheet. I am probably going to put the other half on it on my Etsy page, but if your interested send me a note.

As I have mentioned before I'm not making any hard and fast rules this autumn (well only that it's wearable) mainly because I have the Burda coming through my door each month ,this will influence me no end. So here are a few of my favourites for this month.

I must admit they all seem rather glamorous but I do really love them! Also a  little picture of autumn, along with a Arthur's new toy. The vintage lovers of you will adore this! A 1970s pram, I'm glad to say Arthur loves it as much as I do!
