Maxi dresses

It is hard to beat a maxi dress for versatility and style. Choose a plaid or fall floral fabric in rich shades of brown and beige to stitch up a maxi dress that is comfortable and cozy for cooler days to come. You can add a jean jacket or cardigan in a solid color to complete the look.


There is nothing like a scarf to bring an outfit to life, and what could be easier to sew than a scarf? With the ease of sewing, you can make several scarves in a variety of colors and patterns to dress up any outfit. Whether you are wearing jeans and a tee shirt to the football game or heading to the office in your workday attire, having a beautiful selection of scarves in your wardrobe will give you endless options in fall fashion design. 


If you love all things cozy and comforting, add a poncho or two to your fall wardrobe. Simple to make and suitable for wearing around the house or when out running errands, ponchos pack a powerful punch in comfort and design. Choose a fabric you love and create a poncho that is sure to become one of your favorite fall pieces.


The ease of sewing a tote makes it possible to have one to match every season. Whether you love all things Halloween or simply enjoy the colors of fall, stitch up a tote bag with a colorful fabric or pattern for some fall fun. Totes can be used at the market or the office and are also inexpensive gifts. 

The arrival of fall brings cooler days, cozy evenings, and the return to warmer clothing. It is a great time to stitch up a few new items to update your wardrobe for autumn's arrival. Whether you decide to make a poncho to keep you warm on chilly mornings or a fun tote to carry your supplies to the office, you will have plenty of projects and colorful fabrics to choose from to dress up your wardrobe for fall.
