Cool weather makes!

Cool weather makes!

The seasons are changing, and while it's heating up for some of us, it's cooling down for others!  Our patterns are super versatile and can be used for warm or cool weather, so we wanted to roundup some inspiration from the community (and from our own wardrobes too)!

Are you heading in to warmer weather? Check out our warm weather roundup here.


Cool weather Glebe Pants

 View B of our Glebe Pants was designed with wool in mind! Wool suitings, or even light-weight coating fabric can be used to make super cosy Glebe Pants! Line them with a natural fibre like silk to take advantage of the great qualities of these two natural fibres!






Toasty Torrens Box Top

Our Torrens Box Top comes with 3 sleeves options and is perfect for layering under or over other layers! Leila's short-sleeve Torrens (below) is made from a gorgeous wool, which is lined to increase the comfort factor. My long-sleeve Torrens beneath that is Outback Wife Merino fabric that's a little like a luxurious flannelette. The wide-sleeve piece for the Torrens is designed to leave room underneath, so would be the perfect sleeve to choose if you wanted to use a thicker fabric, like this Merchant & Mills cotton jacquard.





Winter Waikerie

 Although we haven't yet been swamped by Waikerie Shirts or Waikerie Dresses in bold plaid flannel, our versatile shirt and shirt dress patterns are perfect for cosy winter fabrics! If you're looking for flannel inspo, check out the current range at Stonemountain & Daughter.



Super cosy Sculthorpe Pants

We've seen wool Sculthorpe Pants (like the ones below from @frocksandfroufrou), and cosy corduroy Sculthorpe Pants (like these ones from @katie_parrott and @cookinandcraftin)! If you're making wool Sculthorpe Pants you can line them, or skip the lining if wool doesn't bother you! Don't forget about the nap if you're planning to make corduroy Sculthorpe Pants- you might like to play around with your pattern pieces to work out how much fabric you'll require since you'll need to cut the pieces out all in the same direction!

Miss Maude in NZ has some gorgeous wide-wale corduroy which would be great for bottoms and needlecord which would make a gorgeous Waikerie Shirt!



Huon to help you stay warm

Our Huon Shirt & Dress is perfect for cosy fabrics! Shannon has paired her silk noil Huon with tights here, but natural fibres like silk noil are perfect for year-round comfort! We also think that the Huon would look great in a cosy flannel!



Cool weather Outerwear

 Our boiled wool Mallee Jacket and quilted Grainger Coat are made with cool weather in mind!
