As I write this blog post a steady amount of snow is falling from the sky. I’m finally reminded that is nearly full-on winter, despite the warm fall weather we’ve been having. I’m also reminded that I need some new warm clothes, stat. 

I curated the 2016 Fall/Winter Collection with the idea that it could be sewn up into two different capsule wardrobes: a lightweight fall ensemble in autumn tones and a few cold weather outfits with warmer fabrics.

Now that my mindset has shifted to colder weather I’m dreaming up a lined Lonetree Jacket, some denim Chi-Town Chino pants, and a Toaster Sweater dress. The patterns in this bundle are workhorses that will easily take you right through to next spring.

In fact, a few weeks ago six sewing bloggers showed us just how versatile each of these garments is. Let’s take a look.

Alina went above and beyond and sewed the Lonetree Vest and Bonn Shirt in two Indiesew fabrics. We love them paired with her corduroy Chi-Town Chino skirt.

Fleurine was one of our stellar Lonetree Jacket testers. She also sewed up a cozy Toaster Sweater (check out that amazing textured fabric) and a pair of Chi-Town Chino pants for Norwegian winters. 

Believe it or not, we’ve got even more Fall/Winter Collection goodness coming your way. I’ve got to get started on those winter sewing plans and a few of these patterns play a key role!
