Unfortunately, the end of August means that Fall is on it’s way and Summer is drawing to a close. It also means it’s time to bring out some clothes that we might have put away for the Summer and try out some new patterns. I rounded up five of my fall handmade wardrobe staples that are a must have in my fall wardrobe!

One | A Perfect Pair of Jeans
Jeans are part of my uniform all year round, but especially as we move towards fall and winter they are a must have! My work moved to a more casual business casual in the past couple months which means I can even wear jeans during the week. So many pairs are necessary!
Finding your perfect pair of jeans can be a bit of a journey, but once you find them you won’t regret it. For me, it’s the Ash Jeans in a jeggings denim. I’ve sewn up one pair and have more planned and can’t wait to fill my wardrobe with them! You can read all about my Ash Jeans here and for those Ginger fans, I have a post on that too!

Two | A Drapey Cardigan for Layering
As it gets to be chillier, a cardigan is a great accessory for the evenings. I love a good layering cardigan like the Laurelhurst or Blackwood Cardigan. Putting this post together reminded me that I need another one of each of these. you can read about my Laurelhurst here and my Blackwood Cardigan here.
Three | A Woven Tee
I love a good fitting woven tee – they provide such flexibility in your wardrobe. They can be dressed up or dressed down and are easy to accessorize. Some of my favorite include the Coram Top, Key Largo Top, and Summer Day top which you can read about here, here and here!
Four | Sweatshirt for Chilly Mornings
There’s nothing I love more on fall weekend mornings is a trip to get donuts and those trips require a cute sweatshirt to keep you warm! I get so much wear out of my Halifax Hoodie and Rockford Raglans that I could make a million more and still not have enough. I love that both of these patterns have multiple options so that you can make different versions all while using the same pattern. You can read about my Halifax Hoodies here and here and my Rockford Raglans here.
Five | An Transitional Weather Jacket
I couldn’t write up a post about fall wardrobe staples without including a fall jacket in the mix. My Kelly Anoraks get so much wear out of them in the Fall and Spring. I work my Kelly Anorak all through Camp Workroom Social last year and even though I made a second one in the spring, I could see myself making another one this fall. You can read about my Kelly Anoraks here and here. Some other great options that I’ve sewn up are the Joy Jacket and Lonetree Jacket and Vest you can read about my Joy Jacket here and my Lonetrees here and here [and bonus my comparison of the Lonetree and Kelly here!].
