Pumpkin Patch

I am so happy it’s finally fall! It’s my favorite season. I always look forward to a visit to a local pumpkin patch. Fall is also my favorite season to sew and dress for. I’ve been busy making a lot of new garments but the weather is taking it’s time cooling down. It was nearly 80 degrees this day but I was determined to finally wear this outfit!  It’s an Ellie and Mac Be Smart Jumper and a Sweetheart top from Gertie Sews Vintage Casual.

This is my second Sweetheart top. The first one I made years ago as a short sleeve, summery version. I was going to buy the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes pattern but I remembered this was similar. I was so happy to see that there was a long sleeve pattern piece included. I’m trying to limit the amount of patterns I’m buying. This top is a really great basic to add my wardrobe. I plan on making more of these. For this one, I used a burnt orange rib knit I found in the remnant section at Joanns. I know I will wear this a lot this season.

The Ellie and Mac Be Smart Jumper is a circle skirt with waistband and straps. I used a plaid knit I had left over in my stash. I didn’t have enough to cut the circle but I did have enough to create a gathered skirt by cutting two rectangles. This was a very fast sew. I’ve already made another that I’ll be sharing soon.

Ellie and Mac Southshore Romper

Hello! I am sharing my Ellie and Mac South Shore romper today. My friend Hannah bought this pattern and I thought it looked like such a cute, comfy garment to wear in the summer. I made it with that Robert Kaufman cotton jersey knit I shared a few posts back. I made sure to finish it before our trip down to Cape May, New Jersey. It was the perfect thing to wear shopping around this beach town, then out to dinner!

This pattern has a few variations but I stuck to the short sleeve option with the shorts. I graded this pattern out to a larger size for the waist and shorts. I’m happy with the fit but I could probably make the top a little bigger next time.

It was a quick sew and I definitely see myself wearing it a bunch this summer. Also, how cute is this flower stand we found while we were walking around? I had to get a little bouquet!
