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.
