Riley Blake Designs - Woven Wool

 

My favorite things to sew are all for the fall weather. Pants, coats, sweaters, jeans, etc. They're all so cozy and fun to make! When I saw that Riley Blake Designs was coming out with a full wool collection, I may have jumped up and down a little bit! I've been imaging making all the wool things!

Green is Zoe's favorite color, so I grabbed the Check Green and the Plaid Green. I underestimated how much Zoe has grown though and didn't quite grab enough to make this outfit for her. Paisley was more than thrilled that she got it instead!

I love the weight and drape of this wool. It was a dream to work with and would be perfect for so many different projects!

For the coat, I wanted a pretty simple wool coat, but couldn't find one that fit my vision, so I hacked the Moiano by Straight Grain. I made the front and back pieces one long piece rather than bodice and skirt. I also added a couple of hidden welt pockets in the liner and added a belt.

The pants are the Book Fold Trousers by Made It. Again slightly hacked. This time I added the back pockets to be on the outside and I omitted the side darts and made them one long piece rather than two.
I made the pants out of the Plaid Green. I really love this print and think they match the style of pant quite well.


I did make the pants a little more tailored to fit Paisley. She is such a long and lanky creature.


I love the pockets showing!


It's a good thing that we're having fall temps today!
We'll be back to summer temps tomorrow, but the last couple days were a nice break.
This coat will be perfect for our winters!

Make sure to check out all the Woven Wools by Stacy West! They're seriously amazing!

  1. The latter can be difficult. write my college essay Taking into account the lack of time, being able to punctually complete all assignments can be quite problematic for some students.
