So some of us....ahem.... still have winter projects from 2011 never cut. I was favoring basic knit cardigans and flutter types
for layered warmth and ease over sewing more-structured jackets. But should I still start on those patterns?
What is showing up for next year? I notice ruffles on tops are fading out, of course it's simpler for RTW to add raggy strips anywhere now.
I'm always behind for myself--several summer things are still un-buttoned and un-hemmed, enjoy sewing faster things for GK's and starting a brown tweed cord vest and pants for the 2-year old
boy's fall/Christmas wear. And the moms give me lots of mending.
Those of you who are started on fall are as annoying as those who can finish their Christmas shopping by Oct!

If it makes you feel better, I haven't sewn squat for 2 years.

I've got a couple things cut out, but between getting pregnant (and sick from that), my gallbladder, my sarcoidosis flaring up, baby, DH and his gazillion VA appointments and a bout with depression, 2011 is looking good.

It will be dull at my house. I've been making a few turtleneck from an old Kwik Sew pattern to go with some pull on cords I made last year from an old Kwik Sew pattern. I bought some loafers on sale this summer.

I will be mainly driving between 2 college campuses several miles apart and teaching my younger child at home. The collge boy was doing it for me, but he's got a really full schedule and a part time job.

Since hitting menopause and dealing with shifting weight, (actually... slowly increasing!!!), I find it much easier and more economical to purchase RTW at TJ Maxx, Stein Mart, and department store sales. Sewing for myself just isn't rewarding. I now have 5 grands with #6 on the way. It's much more fun to make children's clothes! I'm also loving my new embroidery machine. For some reason, I'll still purchase patterns for myself... not quite sure about sizing... but when I can get them 10 for $10 at JoAnn's, I'll buy a couple with dreams of sewing for myself again.

BTW.... I was once the "Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving" type. I'd buy stuff in the the summer, hide it, and then not be able to find it! We've made Christmas more simple over the years, emphasizing family time, and giving to charity, instead of so many presents under the tree. It's helped.

What if you are just thinking about starting stuff you got for Fall, but back like more for Fall 2010 or 2011 instead? I think that is not all that uncommon, if you got lots of fabric. Or pick any other year in the past decade even maybe. I actually think that is a good reason to leave it as just un cut fabric until you get around to it, more one by one, and not precut up, project wise, too much in advance ever! Just since if you really love a fabric, I think most times you do end up eventually using it, just maybe not for the exact same thing later, that you were envisioning it might have been for, in the first place.

If you liked a particular style from 2011 and still like it in 2012, than by all means sew it. Otherwise, do a little online snoop shopping on your favorite retail websites and see what strikes your fancy, and then find the equivalent pattern. You are your own best fashion advisor.

I tore this page out of the July issue of Vogue and I love it. It's the Vogue Point of View for Fall. It says "Think Big - If you're the kind of woman who likes anonymity in her wardrobe--who prefers the utilitarian uniform of an all-white pantsuit or a little black shift to any bold statement of personal style--this, frankly, isn't your season.
Hold on to your hats: Fall is going to blow in like a gale, on the winds of what we're calling hyperfashion--all the best pieces exaggerated, pushed to the nth degree. Prints are kinetic or magnified. Fabrics are slicked up or metallicized. Even minimalist silhouettes are coming on stronger, pieced together in cool intersecting planes of flat, powerful color. Many of the best workday looks fall from shoulders as wide as a clothes hanger. Hair is windblown, lips a slash of unabashed matte red.
Chic is a confidence game. go big or go home."
According to WWD, the trends for Resort 2013 include mixed prints, laser-cuts, vibrant colors, bomber jackets, lace, short easy dresses. Peplums will still be around as well.
Menswear for S/S 2013 will see lots of color with paisley being a key trend. Linen blends and 1960's Riviera-style fine gauge knits for shirts.

I suppose I'll go home, then.

"fall from shoulders as wide as a clothes hanger."

That is sooooooo* not funny. What is that, 12"? That's not going to even make it over my UPPER chest.

I understand that clothes hangers now come in sizes so people can choose the select the size that supports their clothing properly.
