Fall Wardrobe Plan

Every quarter on the Artisan Square forums, there is a capsule wardrobe sewalong called the 6PAC.  (I recently found out that stand for Six piece Autumn Collection!  Not sure what it means in the other seasons.)  Anyway, I have some special commissioned sewing I am working on, but then I plan to make a 6PAC.

The centerpiece of my little capsule will be my Mindy Cardigan that I am knitting,  It is a pattern by Julia Farwell-Clay.  I started it many moons ago, but recently picked it up again with gusto, in hopes of finishing it before the weather turns cold.  Here is a photo of the back in progress.

It sort of reminds me of Marsala, one of the Pantone colors of the moment. This color does not have the brown undertones that Marsala seems to have, but this means it goes better with my current black/grey wardrobe.

So along with the sweater I plan to sew two pairs of pants, probably using Butterick 5222 like I did for my brown capris.  I have stretch twill in both navy blue and a dark charcoal.  Then I will try a new top pattern I have drafted in Pattern Master Boutique, based on my TNT tshirt pattern, but with a bit of a draped neckline.  I have a light blue cotton jersey and a white jersey with black and grey accents for this pattern.  To fill out the 6PAC I want to make a button front blouse with some blue chambray I bought last year.

Linking up to Patchwork Times for On the Needles Friday!
