Hi Guys! How are you? Can you believe its October? It’s officially Autumn, and I’m pretty much loving it at the moment. The weather is not so warm and not cold either. I would say it’s at the stage where you don’t have to bring out the coats and jackets yet, a blazer is completely fine at least in London.

On to today’s  post. So basically when McCall came out with their fall patterns, I had to get the McCalls – 7802. I loved all the variations. In my mind I imagined making view C in a brown polka dot or an animal print, unfortunately I could not find these fabrics anywhere. And considering I committed to taking part in a sew along for September with @PrettyGirlsSew, I had to a make choice asap. In the end I went with this brown crepe abstract print, it has some weight to it. Honestly the camera did not pick up this print so well, its so beautiful in person.

Alterations:

-View C, cut the full length skirt but decided to take 5 inches off to achieve a midi length. Took in 2 inches from the knee downward.

I think pairing midi skirts and dresses with boots in Autumn/Winter is so flattering. I can not wait to make the other views for spring and summer.

What do have planned for the last quarter of year? Start where you are. Start with what you have. Wishing you a good start in the week. Xo, Lekeleli.
