Sew Ready For Fall


Although summer still has another month to go, my mind is in full swing of sewing for the Fall. Jude has been my main focus, but when this tour came up, I couldn't resist making something for myself!



Stylish Fabrics has a ton of amazing fabrics to choose from and I was very pleased to see the prices they're offered at too! I finally chose to review the Navy Chambray Off White Liverpool Stretch Knit because one: I love stripes and two: I've never sewn with Liverpool knit before and I just had to try it!
We live in the mountains so although our days are still nice and hot, it does cool off quite well at night and this fabric is the perfect weight for those cooler nights in the summer but will also be amazing for those slightly chilly fall days to come. Or of course those times your husband cranks up the air conditioning because he's boiling hot and you're sitting there bundled up like an eskimo.....


I seriously live in Hoodies, and I've been dying to make the Halifax Hoodie by Hey June. I had to adjust the length a bit, but I have to do that for every pattern. All of the pieces fit together perfectly and it did not take long at all to sew up. You can't get more perfect than that!
I can see why so many people love liverpool knit too. It was so easy to sew and I didn't even need a billion pins to get my stripes all lined up!


The fabric was wide enough that once I had cut out my hoodie I had just enough left to make Jude a Safari Raglan by Titchy Threads. LOVE wide knits!
He absolutely loves that his shirt matches mine. He's absolutely the biggest mama's boy.


Stylish Fabric has an EPIC GIVEAWAY going on with tons of patterns along with a brand new sewing machine, so you will NOT want to miss it. Check them out on all their social media.
