1. Aria Button down

  • 2 Collar Options: Banded and Standard Collar
  • Dress Options: Tie Belt or Drawstring Waist

  • A worsted wool plaid vest, with the drawstring waist ~ completed
  • A tunic length Rust and Olive plaid linen version ~ completed

2. Terra Tunic

Why?

  • This pattern is soooo versatile. It can be casual or work appropriate depending on fabrics and options chosen. Most of mine are casual~ I’m a retired teacher!
  • Options: 6 neckline variations (and they are all awesome!), 4 sleeve lengths, elbow patches and welt pockets. My favorite sleeve length for Fall is the 3/4 sleeve.
  • Can be worn year round! (It even makes a great beach coverup come summer!)

My Fall Terra Tunic plans include:

  • A French Terry V-neck hooded version in a fun Fall print ~ completed
  • A V-neck version in a mid-weight sweater knit
  • A funnel neck version in a mid-weight sweater knit~perhaps with more of a cowl neck

3. Constellation Pullover

Why?

  • Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall!~ this pattern is great for all 4 seasons!
  • Half-zip front makes it so easy to put on and take off(much easier than a hoodie!)
  • Great alternative to a hoodie
  • Comfy as a hoodie~ but looks so much nicer
  • Can be color blocked
  • Huge front pocket!
  • Available as the North Star for men, or the Navigator for kids so you can make them for the whole family!

This Button Placket Constellation was made following Katie Grimm’s hack as a guide. You can read about Katie’s hack here.

My Fall Constellation plans include:

  • A “Teddy Bear” fleece version, to recreate a RTW version I saw last winter
  • A French Terry version in a Raspberry Creek Fabrics Holiday print.

Be sure to revisit my blog in December when I will have a detailed blog post on the Constellation pullover

4. Metra Blazer

Why?

  • It is such a fun sew!!! Totally doable for an adventurous beginner.
  • Casual style blazer that is so versatile. Looks great with jeans AND skirts/dresses.
  • Great construction techniques (that are fun to sew!). And the inside is just as pretty as the outside!
  • Great lapel options: shawl or wide lapel
  • Inseam welt pockets that are nice and big enough for your cell phone(and it won’t fall out!)

    I’m not sure what my favorite LN pattern will be — I have recently found LN and am enjoying dreaming. I’ve made the Cadence and the Laundry Day Tee. I’m gearing up to make a Rhapsody. But I know that finding the perfect “topper” will be the most helpful for my wardrobe.

      Hello, I am always inspired when I see your makess. I have been really enjoying the harmony but I think my all time favorite is the La Bella top. Such a quick sew and so confortable.

        Thank you so much Josee. I love the Harmony too, such a quick sew! My favorite version is the sleeveless for summer. The LBD is also a great one~ I have about 10 different solid color ones!

    Wow! That’s a hard question! I haven’t met a Love Notions pattern I didn’t love! It would be a toss up between the Rhapsody and Metra blazer…or maybe the Tempo sundress? You can’t go wrong with LN! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thank you for sharing your sewing plans with us- it’s given me lots of ideas and now I’m convinced I need the Metra blazer pattern! So far my favorite LN pattern is the Rhapsody- I’m on my 4th version!

    Je vous ai découverte sur la page LN de Facebook, et j’adore votre façon de présenter vos tenues. J’ai du coup passer commande de patrons qui vont être de sympathiques projets. J’ai même tellement adoré Aria qu’il est désormais dans mes patrons mis de coté. Etant auxiliaire de vie de ma mère âgée et handicapée , le temps me manque pour réaliser aussi vite que je voudrais. Mais c’est ainsi 😊
    Gardez votre bonne humeur qui arrive jusque dans le sud de la France.

      Thank you so much! Now I have to be honest~ I don’t speak French~ my husband does(he when to school there way back when). I hope you will someday have more time to sew. Maybe you can set a small amount of time aside to do so~ as it can be quite soothing to the soul.

    Gosh, I have so many favorites! But judging by the number of times I’ve sewn it up (I lost track at 10!), I’d have to go with the allegros!

      I think it might be very close!. I had a friend that sold them and I loved the style and fit, but wasn’t going to pay the price when I had to shorten it so much to fit me! You can always hold up the pattern pieces to your rtw dress to compare them and make some adjustments.

    The Boyfriend Cardigan is high up on my wish-list. My favorite pattern to sew up is the Arlington Sweater. I have several that I am wanting to sew up this year. You have some great picks for your fall favorites! The Metra Jacket will be on my sewing table next to add some staples to my basics capsule wardrobe, along with several Constellations for comfort!

    Just getting started with LN patterns, the Boyfriend cardi is really cute! I’m looking for things that are more form fitted and like the versatility I see in the LN patterns. Haven’t sewed for myself for some time, but looking forward to getting started! Thanks Mary!!

    It is difficult to choose a favorite pattern. I’ve only started using LN patterns this year & love the fact that there is a full bust included. I think the Lincoln Tee is my favorite right now. I only just found your blog today! Thanks

    I just bought the Rhapsody pattern and can’t wait to make it with RCF rayon challis. I have my eye on the Metra blazer because I want something with a chambray that’s not a button up.
