While summer is surging forward in other parts of the country, up here in Colorado we’re starting to get hints of fall. We have forecasts for highs in the 60s later in the week, we’ve been getting more rain than usual, days are already getting shorter. This from a place that snowed on Mother’s Day; I DO NOT APPROVE.
But come it will, so we’d better start planning. Here at RST, we’ve scoured the Internet for the best fall indie sewing patterns to make fashion-forward, gorgeous fall clothes. There were so many to choose from! We’ve included casual and dressy, woven and knit, easy and more involved. If you’re a garment sewist, there’s bound to be something here for you!
