Patterns for Fall 2019 Trends | Web Extra

Consider the following patterns for three garment styles for your fall sewing, and be sure to check out fall trends in “Autumn Fashion,” by Erica Redfern, Threads #205 (Oct./Nov. 2019). This season, collections featured strong silhouettes and vibrant colors, as well as 1980s style with bold suiting and fabric choices. The fall fashion article explores the season’s Pantone color palette as well as trending fabrics from the runway.

Long coat with lapels

Many collections sported long coats, both single- and double-breasted, that featured lapels. This style is versatile and can flatter many body types. The length makes it cozy in cooler weather, while the notched collar provides classic style. For help creating a neat finish, see “How to Sew a Notched Jacket Lapel,” by Jan Schoen, SewStylish Fall Fashion 2010.

Ruffles and flounces

Add a touch of feminine flair to any garment with ruffles or flounces. Ruffles can be soft in lightweight fabrics or substantial in medium-weight textiles. Consider ruffle placement to achieve the most flattering effect for your body type. For a tip about gathering fabric, read “Dental Floss is Good for Gathers,” by Ann Steeves and to add a flounce to a dress or skirt pattern, see “How did they sew that: Flounce a dress,” by Judith Neukam, Threads #166 ( April/May 2013).

Moto-style jackets

Bring a casual edge to your fall wardrobe with a moto-style jacket. The asymmetrical zipper closure looks great whether you wear the jacket open or closed. Most moto-style jackets have side pockets included in the pattern, making them functional as well. Moto-style jackets can be sewn in faux leather or other sturdy woven fabrics such as denim, twill, and canvas, although some moto jacket patterns are designed to work with knit fabrics. Several jacket patterns listed below are unlined; see “Add a Bound Seam and Hong-Kong Finish to an Unlined Jacket,” by Rae Cumbie, for advice on finishing exposed seams.
