It’s fall–in my sewing room. I got the autumn stitch itch (ASI). After the little write-up with my picks for the Simplicity early fall line, I’ve had cool-weather clothes on the brain.

Without further ado, here is the knit top:
This is only my second knit top, so it’s just not perfect. This is definitely progress over the first one though.
Love, love, love the extra-long sleeves. They’re great for when it’s warm during the day and a tad nippy in the evening.
easy project–anyone but me could do in a day
The fit around the neck isn’t perfect. It’s not the kind of fit issue I would have noticed before I started sewing, though. So if you’re not a total freak, it is probably nothing.
I’m happy enough with it that I’m *definitely* sewing up the dress that goes over it.
Lastly, I have your 360 view:
Not that anyone asked, but I was totally wearing my McCalls pajama bottoms from last month while writing this post. They’re still such a win.
Who else is already elbow-deep in their fall sewing?
Kisses and stitches,
