Inspiration for Fall 2011

Have been watching the fall fashion? I'm seeing skirts just below the knee, boots, and jackets. Here's a couple of items from Ellie Tahari to think about:

Here's an early fall look, a Jacket and Skirt.  Isn’t this a great look?  I love the gray and the red together.  The jacket is the Shellie Jacket in carbon.  Price tag: $498.  The skirt is the Fiona skirt in Graphite.  Price tag: $298. 

Recreate this look could be easy. Let's use some patterns from the Silhouette Patterns line.

Here's the Max's Jacket from Silhouettes Patterns.   It is a very similar look to the Shellie Jacket. (I do not currently have this is in stock but will order if asked.) 

Now, for the skirt:

The Joyce's Almost Bias Skirt pattern by Silhouettes will work for the skirt.

Here's an alternate look using the same style jacket in a different color:

Here's a Jacket and Pant from Ellie Tahari.  This is the Shellie jacket in carbon (same color as the skirt above).  Price tag: $498.00.   The pants is the Theora Straight in black.  Price tag:  $298. 

Use Ralph's Pants pattern by Silhouettes to duplicate the style of pant shown.

If you used the same fabric (maybe a dark gray) for all three pieces you would have a very nice three piece suit in a neutral color.  From there, you could add another pair of pants (maybe in black) since the pattern has already been fitted.  Silhouettes has some great videos on fitting their patterns.  Visit their website to view these webcasts.

Special offer good through the end of June 2011.  If all three patterns are ordered through me, I will ship these free within the United States.  International customers will get discounted shipping.  Please note, I will place one order on July 1, 2011.  This means that you will have to wait on patterns but just a short while. 

Happy Sewing!
