September is almost upon us, and that for me has always meant the beginning of fall. Autumn is the time to knit, to watch the leaves turn yellow, and to prepare for winter. I usually like to go through my dresses during the first weeks of fall, and get rid of the ones I no longer care for. This year, I think I might do some serious purging. But before that, lets take a look at some fall looks. Our featured product this week is The Faerie Set, and I wanted to take this time to remind you that you can get The Faerie Gloves for free simply by ordering our newsletter. This offer expires on Halloween, so there’s still plenty of time to claim a free copy of the pattern!
Long and Elegant
For the first of today’s fall looks, I chose to wear the dress I made for my fortieth Birthday. I used a light viscose jersey, and added a lace yoke and sleeves. The dress turned out lovely, and it’s gotten a lot of wear. It’s super-comfy, and the see-through yoke gives it a unique look. This dress doesn’t deal that well with accessories, but shawls work wonderfully with it. For this look, I chose to throw The Faerie Dragon over my neck. I love the way it drapes over my shoulders at the back, though you can’t really see it in the photos.
Short and Fun
When choosing outfits, I usually go for the skin-tight options. One reason for this is that it’s almost always windy outside Wind catches clothes, makes wide hems fly, and leaves an outfit in complete disarray. I really don’t like it when that happens, and wearing figure-hugging dresses is an easy way to avoid it. For this look, I paired our Pretty Basic Lace Top with a pencil skirt I picked up from a flea market a while back. The skirt is made with a lively material, and I’ve had a hard time figuring out what to wear with it. On photo-day, I decided to throw caution to the wind, and pair it with another lively material. I didn’t expect the combo to work, but it did! The result pleases me well, and I’m pretty certain this outfit gets to go out pretty soon. As a finishing touch, I wore The Faerie Dragon wrapped around my neck. After all, winter is coming, and we need all the warmth we can get.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s fall looks!
Until next time.
