Fall Sewing & Lady Grey

Who turned off the heat?? Literally, the outdoor temperature went from a high of 80F on one day to a high of 60F on the next day. Damn northern states. That's what the weather is like in Michigan. It's never a gradual increase or decrease. One day, it's hot. The next day, it's Arctic. Oh well, whatareyagonnado?

Since Fall is upon us, I have switched to fall sewing mode. I've actually been in fall sewing mode for a while, but I guess I'm finally making it official. Since school started for me as well, my sewing time has drastically decreased. I am still putting projects together, but I have to be more diligent with managing my time.

My fall wardrobe colours right now consist of purples, grays, cream, rust, and a soft shade of green. I am hoping to overlap some pieces with a second fall wardrobe. We'll see how that goes.

Anyway, I am looking forward to participating in the Lady Grey Sew Along. I still don't have a fabric picked out, but I've been eying this wool coating on Fabric.com

I am not a fan of pink. At all. Bu, I am loving this nubby fabric. The fabric is described as heavyweight, so I don't know if this is an appropriate weight for the coat.

I could also go with something plain like this wool blend from Fabric.com. Meh.

Melody at Fashionista Fabrics has this fiery red wool coating. Mmm..

I've never ordered anything from Fabric Mart, but their new batch of Shetland wools are very tempting. This one is called 'heathered palm'.

Decisions, decisions. I think I'll focus on getting the muslin together before I buy fabric.

I need to do some job-related work now. I haven't been feeling well the last couple of days, so I have lots of work to do and need to make the most of the time where I feel okay.
