Stylish Fabrics Blog Tour: Sew Ready for Fall!

Who’s ready for fall? I’m always sad to see summer go, but I sure love fall. I was asked to be apart of the Stylish Fabrics Blog Tour “Sew Ready for Fall”. Even though I’ve lived in Utah for 7 years now, the California girl in me still has a hard time transitioning into colder seasons (including my wardrobe!). So, I was excited to jump into this tour, and make something to add to my wardrobe as we get ready for cooler days.

The challenge of this blog tour was to make something you could ear now in summer, but also take into your fall wardrobe. I think this top works great for summer nights, or cooler summer days paired with sandals and will become a staple for my fall wardrobe layered with a scarf, jacket and boots-so many great combos with this one!

So first of all, this fabric! I chose a pink/mauve french terry slub fabric. It’s soft and cozy, but also light and airy. I really love it so much! It washes up beautifully too.

I decided to go with the Halifax Hoodie Pattern I picked up from Indie Sew. It is so good. I made view B in size small, and sewed the whole thing up in about 2 hours. It’s a very easy and quick make, I will definitely be making more. My husband also seemed to be quite impressed with it, saying it looked “store bought”, and that’s always the goal!

I did take out about 1″ out from my neckband. If you use this fabric I would suggest doing this because it is a little bit slinkier; otherwise your neckband will fall over the neckline edge, and not sit up straight as it should.

I wish you could see what’s on the other side of this photo above. My photographer (brother) moved out of the state last week (so sad!!), so I asked Nicole of @nf_merritts on Insta if she would be up for a photo swap sesh. Behind the camera she’s got my 18 month old in one arm (a very hard feat) and our two 3 year old kids corralled behind her somehow, keeping them from jumping in the picture with me. So this photo deserves an award, or Nicole deserves an award! Thanks Nicole!

There’s a HUGE giveaway going on as part of this blog tour, and it’s a good one guys. You can enter here!

Also, don’t forget to keep up with the rest of the tour for more great fabric, pattern and fall inspiration! Thanks Stylish Fabrics!

  1. Great job! I love this pattern and am looking forward to making more when the weather finally breaks. I may have to pick up that terry, just love it.

  2. I love your pictures and the backstory is very funny. It’s always a laugh to hear what was going on behind the camera. I have the Halifax hoodie pattern but haven’t tried it yet. After reading your review, it just sailed up to the top of my to-sew list!
