Explore garment and fabric trends for fall 2018 with “Fall Looks,” by Erica Redfern, in Threads #199 (Oct./Nov. 2018). This season, individuality and comfort are key. Cozy layers, eye-catching jackets and coats, and revamped blazers are just a few of the garment trends. Fabrics range from plush wool to light-as-air chiffon and everything in between. Here are three more trends to consider, along with some patterns to try. Let us know in the comments which style you’re most excited to start sewing.

High/cowl necklines

Besides being warm and comfortable, these two neckline styles have the versatility to work for almost any occasion. Pair an oversized cowl-neck sweater with a pencil skirt, or a high-neck top with flared pants. To add a chunky knit cowl neckline to a jacket pattern, follow the directions in “Pattern Hack: Ripple-Effect Jacket” by Patricia Keay, Threads #193, Oct./Nov. 2017.

Collared shirts/dresses
