Simplicity: Early Autumn 2015
Summer has ended, but there is no reason to be sad. Usher in autumn with a new, fashion-forward wardrobe.
Flowy, fun, and flattering
Look professional yet casual in Simplicity 1323. This pattern includes designs for misses’ knit tunics, pants, and an infinity scarf. This draped-knit top has an optional contrast band and can be dressed up or down. This pattern works well in interlock, jersey, stretch velvet, and two-way stretch knits. The contrast bands should be made of silk.
Asymmetrical, trendy, and unique
Stay comfortable and trendy with Simplicity 1201. The pattern features three skirt styles: a faux wrap, gored A-line, and four-point–or shark-bite–hem. Their hemlines range from knee-length to long. These pull-on knit skirts are simple but make the perfect statement with any top. They are sized for stretch knits only: Stick with jersey knits and spandex blends.
Warm, cozy, and comfortable
Simplicity 1255, which features sportswear, is special to us at Threads magazine. It includes knit tops, pants, and skirts, as well as our editors’ essential techniques for working with knits. A playlist of techniques for this pattern is available here.
These designs are good with double or jacquard knits, ponte, stretch velvet, and/or velour.
Autumn is in the air
Simplicity 1593 is the perfect design to get you ready for fall. The misses’ & plus-size ensemble consists of slim-fit knit pants with elasticized waist, simple tunic with elbow-length sleeves, and cardigan-style jacket and vest with belt. All pieces are sized for knit fabrics.
Use laundered cottons, stretch velvet, two-way stretch jersey, and double-knit (lightweight) fabrics. For view E, suede cloth is suggested (synthetic suede is a good alternative).
Which of these designs would you like to make this fall? Leave a comment below–we love hearing from you. Have fun sewing, and happy autumn.
I really liked the first idea, but I would wear it with skinny pants. I think it can get too much when both clothing pieces are flowy. A pencil skirt just below the knee will also look good in my opinion.
