Autumn 6PAC

The 6 PAC (6 piece Autumn collection) is a challenge initiated by Elisabeth over at Stitcher’s Guild Sewing Forum that runs each season. The Autumn 6pac starts in August and ends in October, the idea being that you finish with 6 items to add to your Autumn wardrobe.

There are rules, although these are flexible and the whole point is that you actually sew some items. So it’s late September already and I’ve only just decided on the final 6PAC. It’s taken me this long to settle on the fabrics, although I knew I needed warmer skirts and a cardigan/jacket of some sort to fill the gaps in my wardrobe.

Aren’t these gorgeous colours? I sent for loads of samples and bought lots of other fabric before I decided on these. The brown cotton velvet at the bottom is from my stash, it was originally pink but I dyed it years ago. I think it was originally a velvet curtain. The others are all new purchases.

From the top:

1)Sea green wool knit cardigan/long jacket
2) viscose jersey mock wrap top
3) navy velveteen knee length skirt
4) chocolate cord trousers
5) wool knit wrap dress
6) brown velvet a line skirt, possibly with stitch detail hem

I can get 4 outfits just from these 6, or 8 if you count with and without the cardi as two separate outfits. Add items I already own and just watch me work that style!
