Here are the pictures of my “Autumn Snapshots” outfit. I drafted the pattern for the cowl neck top myself. I love how this pattern came out, so I plan on making a few more in different colors.
The cardigan/jacket was based on an old Vogue pattern I have, #8696. The cardi/jacket is made from some fleece I bought last year, but never got around to using. I love how warm it is! The cowl top is made from a cotton jersey. I am happy I was able to line the stripes up so well. I always get nervous when cutting out stripes or plaids.
We shot a few of the pictures on my porch before we left to the park near my house. It was a windy day today, so I wanted to make sure I had some “control” shots before arriving at the location. I had no idea what to expect of the wind. I am happy the way the pictures came out, and the wind worked with us, instead of against us.

It was funny trying to walk on soft ground in those shoes! I felt like I was aerating the grass! LOL! The heels kept sinking into the soft earth. I stand about 5 foot 9 to 6 feet tall in these booties!
Tomorrow I will be back at work on the faux fur coats for Ciarra and I. After that I am not sure what I will be working on next. I might make a couple of Christmas dresses?…who knows! 🙂 I have so many fabrics I can play with, I really don’t need to be buying anymore just yet, even though I found some recently that I would LOVE to own! hahahah can we say fabric addiction!?
Until next post,
