From Sketch to Finished: Angelica’s Fall Sewing Roundup

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be back to share how my fall sewing queue has been progressing over the last few months. In September, I shared my fall sewing queue with you all, with an outfit for each month sketched on my custom croquis from the MyBodyModel app. It is no lie when people say your queue will always change and evolve over time, because I did end up adding one outfit to my September sewing and shuffled some sewing projects around, which I hope to also share with you all soon! Here are my makes so far, along with my original sketches.

August

Moji Pants + Moselle Ruffle Top

August wasn’t included in my fall sewing queue, but thought I would share how this one turned out. This was the very first outfit I sewed as part of my monthly ‘me made’ goal, and I learned so much in the process. I sewed this outfit a little too late in the summer, because I only got to wear it once. But at least I can look forward to wearing it next year or on a sunny vacation! Plus, the Moji pants have been a great addition to the more casual pieces in my wardrobe.

September

Rowan Bodysuit + Jenna Skirt

This outfit was included in my original plans for September. The Rowan bodysuit has already become a huge staple in my wardrobe and I made it in the most buttery soft bamboo jersey from Mood Fabrics. I definitely plan on making it in more colors! As for the Jenna skirt, I thought it was essential to have a simple chambray skirt in my closet. It goes with anything and everything!

Seamwork Georgia

This next dress is something that was a bit unplanned. I realized I didn’t have anything to wear to a wedding in October, but I didn’t want to go out and buy a dress that I would probably only wear once. I decided to make a dress that I could not only wear to the wedding, but add to my daily wardrobe. Whenever I make something I ask myself, “how many ways can I wear this?” I decided to go with the Seamwork Georgia because you just can’t go wrong with a shift dress. They are so easy to dress up and dress down. I just paired this dress with some heels and nice jewelry and it was the perfect fall wedding outfit! Now I wear it to work almost every week.

October

Self-drafted costume: Shae from Game of Thrones

Last but not least is my very first self-drafted costume! After binge watching Game of Thrones and attending various medieval/renaissance faires over the summer, I knew I wanted to do something along those lines for Halloween. I think that the dresses in Game of Thrones are so gorgeous and decided to make a dress inspired by Shae’s handmaiden dresses. Since it was my first time doing a self-drafted costume, I am thankful to have my croquis to sketch and plan. It took about two months of sketching, draping, and finding the perfect fabrics to create the look. I must say, I’m pretty proud of myself and am super happy with how it turned out!

If you are looking for a great way to plan out your wardrobe, definitely get yourself a MyBodyModel croquis! I can’t wait to keep sharing more progress on how my queue and wardrobe evolve and come to life.

Angelica is a lifelong resident of the Greater Seattle Area. She has always been interested in fashion and learned to sew in 2017 when she bought her first sewing machine and her husband taught her how to do a basic straight stitch. After sharpening her skills more through YouTube and by following the sewing community, she is focused on creating a #MeMade wardrobe that works for her petite 5’0” and muscular build, something that she has always struggled with in buying ready-to-wear clothing. She believes that sewing is an important life skill and a way for all genders to feel more connected to and confident in their body type. When she’s not sewing she also enjoys knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, traveling, and spending time with her husband and furry children.
