Transition from Summer to Autumn

Versatile sewing patterns that will take you from one season to the next!

How on earth is it coming into Autumn already? I’m sure it’s just flown by in a blink of an eye! Now is the time that my wardrobe is transitioning from lightweight floaty dresses and shorts to longer sleeve garments and tights. Bring on the snuggly hoodies!

Make the most of your patterns!

Summery dresses
You can still wear your summer floaty dresses by adding a cute cardigan like the Pearl Cardigan from Tilly and the Buttons or the Fuller Cardigan from Cashmerette. Just by adding tights and a pair of ankle boots will make sure you keep toasty warm too!

Stylish Shorts

When it comes to shorts, wearing tights underneath a tailored pair of shorts in the autumn months can look really cute! Try the stylish Flint Shorts from Megan Nielsen or the Pietra Shorts by Closet Core.

TIP: If you’re not a fan of coloured tights, go for some flesh coloured ones to give the illusion you can survive the cold! Snag tights do a vast array of colours and skin tones!

Dungarees – this is a garment that’s be made for layering with a tee underneath or you can even pop a jumper or cardigan over the top. 

Rebecca Page Kingston Jacket


A stylish jacket will be your go to and you can’t beat a denim jacket! Worn with a white shirt or blouse, will make your denim jacket smart. The Kingston Jacket from Rebecca Page is a and beautifully finished topstitched denim jacket that will be a staple in any wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down and can customised to suit your style with multiple pocket and sleeve length options. Cropped jackets are perfect to wear with high waisted skirts and trousers and over a midi/maxi dress! The Poas Jacket from Itch to Stitch and flatters many figures. Cropped jackets have an elongating effect due to define the waist too!

If you’re still needing to wear tee’s, you can look for accessories in autumn-appropriate colour palettes. It’s just enough of a change to make the outfit feel fresh and stylish, yet you’re still getting use from your summer clothing.

Scarves are great trans-seasonal layering pieces!

They add another layer, make one in a light cotton or rayon so if it gets warm you can usually get away with still wearing them. They also had a pop of colour! Why not sew your own in snuggly jersey Pompom Scarf like I have made here!
