November is our Month of Making Outerwear! Is Outerwear one word or two? Oh well, anyway, check out these patterns that you can buy to keep yourself warm and protected from the elements!
The Nell Cape from Style Arc
I just bought the Style Arc Nell Cape Pattern, and I can’t wait to make it. What excites me so much is that it appears that I WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE MY DAMN ARMS while wearing it. I made myself a cape a few years ago, and it’s gorgeous, but I can’t drive while wearing it- so I don’t wear it. Bummer! But the Nell looks like she’s ready for action.
The cape is unlined and finished with binding. I expect to wear it like a sort of fancy jacket. I have a thin synthetic winter coat that is surprisingly warm that I think might fit under this too. I have a feeling this will go fast, and if so, I’d love to make several!

Two Trench Coats
Cashmerette Patterns by Jenny Rushmore has distinguished itself as a versatile and accessible pattern line that makes sewing for curvy bodies easy and enjoyable. I know that fitting a full bust into a coat, RTW or Self Sewn, can be difficult, so the Cashmerette Chilton Trench Coat is the answer- with cup sizes C-H included in the pattern! Grab a hard copy of the pattern here, from the Confident Stitch.com.
I don’t have a large bust…at all, and the Sewaholic Robson Trench looks like something I’d be willing to try! I am totally someone who likes to be dressed in statement clothing (probably too much of it) all the time. Get a hard copy from The Confident Stitch here.
Coats from Closet Case Files
Sandi, an original Self Sewn Wardrobe member, made a purple on e a few years ago, and it’s gorgeous!

#sewphotohop Day 6: Seasonal Favorite. I absolutely love the wool coat I made last fall. Of course, winters in Winnipeg last *forever* (the world makes jokes about Canadian winters, but Canadians make jokes about Winnipeg winters…) so by March I am DONE with it, but I’ve had a few months off and now I’m excited to start wearing this beauty again soon. #sewphotohop2018 #clarecoat #closetcasepatterns #winnipegsews
The Kelly Anorak…the project that haunts me….is still so in style that I have no excuse for not finishing mine!
Let’s Hear It For The Boys!
Or the male identifying stitchers, or for the people who like the cut of “traditional men’s clothing”. Whatevah- Thread Theory has you covered!
The Newcastle Cardigan has been on my list for a while. I’d like to make it for myself and use leather or waxed canvas for the yokes on the front and back- I think that’d be pret-ty neat!
Zede and I made the Finlayson Sweater with Vince Fabra from the “You Almost Had It” podcast. It went pretty quick (even when we let him use the serger for the first time) and he looked adorable!
