Indiesew 2017 Fall/Winter Collection

Finally (finally!) the 2017 Fall/Winter Collection has arrived! This one spent a long time in the planning stages, folks. It was one of those projects where the details didn't pull together until the end. But the day I received these photos back from the photographer? Yeah, I knew that this pattern bundle and complementary fabrics were some of our best yet.

The 2017 Fall/Winter Collection includes five sewing patterns that mix and match to create a small cold-weather capsule wardrobe. The five fabrics you see below are also for sale as part of this season's fabric collection. But let's not waste any more time...


The pattern players

Coram Top and Dress

My third design under my personal brand is the Coram Top and Dress! Unlike my last two patterns, this design is geared towards the beginner sewist and sews up in a snap. | Coram Top and Dress Sewing Pattern by Allie Olson

Coram is a boxy woven top (or dress, see in the cover photo above) with cuffed raglan sleeves and shoulder and bust darts for shaping. We sewed this top in our Autumn Blooms Crepe to add some visual interest to this simple silhouette.


Burnside Bibs

We've been eyeing the Burnside Bibs sewing pattern since Sew House Seven released it earlier this year. It turns out that Version 1 sewn in our Ice Tencel Twill is everything we ever wanted in overalls.

The Burnside Bibs are modern overalls with varying front bib options, pant options, a waistband, front and back pockets, and crossed back straps. 


Tamarack Jacket

The Tamarack Jacket has been on the market for a while now, and with each version we saw sewn it was clear that we had to include it in this bundle.

We sewed our Tamarack Jacket in our Watermelon Ribbed Tencel Twill. It was an unlikely choice for this design, but turned out exactly as we had imagined. We lined the jacket with the Autumn Blooms Crepe for a flash of print when the sleeves are rolled up.


Matcha Top

Sew Liberated has been a household name in the indie pattern world and we've been dying to try some of their patterns. The Matcha Top was released earlier this year and it is the swingy, boxy top of our dreams.

We sewed this Matcha Top in our Eggplant Rayon Crepe and the heavy drape of this fabric makes this design sing.


Carrie Cardigan

Delia's Carrie Cardigan is the perfect cocoon cardigan for chilly weather. We sewed ours up in our new Charcoal French Terry and used our Heather Grey Rayon Spandex jersey for the cuffs. | Carrie Cardigan by Delia Creates

Perhaps our favorite thing about this cardigan is that it pairs with anything! It looks great worn over the Coram Dress or with the Matcha Top and a pair of jeans.


Bundle and Save!

The best part? This pattern collection comes with big savings built into both the full and mini bundles.
