September Sewing Plans

Is anyone else excited that autumn is just round the corner? I am looking forward to layering up in cosy jumpers and boots and, after a bit of a sewing drought,  my urge to sew has returned.

The big 4 Autumn patterns are being released (in the US - hurry up Butterick and get them here!!), and I have seen some tantalisingly good looking patterns.
This has to be my ideal simple coat pattern. I may even have enough fabric in my stash to make it!

 I have had some fairly heavy wool, ribbed, sweater knit for ages and have never found quite the right pattern, I think I have now!
I have a feeling I may look like I am wearing a blanket but paired with a polo neck, jeans and boots it will hopefully look ok!

I will also be making the husband a tweed jacket. I have the pattern cut out, all squillion pieces, now I just need to find the bits to make the muslin.

Now to keep my fingers crossed that life gets a little less hectic and I might just get some of these things sewn!
