The Edit: Trans-Seasonal Sewing

Happy Sunday Foldliners! Is anyone else feeling a seasonal shift in the air? I must admit, I am well and truly ready to sink my teeth into sewing autumnal garments. We’ve been having a think about what to sew right now for this in-between-the-seasons weather. If you want to indulge in a spot trans-seasonal sewing, our pattern short list might inspire your next make.

We are offering a whopping 15% off all the patterns featured on the 4-5th September with the code: SUMMERSOUT (expires at midnight on the 5th). From the 6-10th September, you can get 10% off all the patterns with the code: AUTUMNISHERE (expires at midnight on the 10th). We hope this might help kick start your autumn sewing. Check out our video where Kate talks through all of our pattern picks in more detail and you can find links below!

Woman wearing the Cuff Dress sewing pattern from The Assembly Line on The Fold Line. A dress pattern made in cotton, silk, lawn, linen, crepe de chine or wool crepe fabrics, featuring a mid-length finish, relaxed fit, round neck with keyhole opening in the back, side pockets, elastic waist and cap sleeves with elasticated cuffs.

Women wearing the Belemnite Dress sewing pattern from Marilla Walker on The Fold Line. A dress pattern made in linen, cotton shirting or cotton double gauze fabrics, featuring a relaxed fit, fit and flare silhouette, long gathered sleeves, lantern shaped skirt, self-fabric ties at the waist, back zip closure and a V-neckline.

There’s nothing better than an autumn-friendly dress that can easily be styled with tights and light layers if the day is a little cooler, and worn with bare legs and no jacket when the sun decides to shine! Here are four of our faves:

  1. Merchant and Mills Etta Dress
  2. The Assembly Line Cuff Dress
  3. Sew Liberated Hinterland Dress
  4. Marilla Walker Belemnite Dress

We couldn’t talk about trans-seasonal sewing without mentioning the sewing community favourite – the True Bias Marlo Sweater. This pattern is almost impossible to make just once (I speak from experience!) and is a fairly quick sew, so it’s a satisfying addition to your pattern collection.


Woman wearing the Worker Trousers sewing pattern from The Modern Sewing Co on The Fold Line. A trouser pattern made in heavy to mid-weight twills, drills, denims or canvas fabrics, featuring a slight balloon leg tapering in at the ankle, fitted at the hips, concealed button or zip fly, front pockets with facings, patch pockets and waistband with belt loops.

Whether you are after a quick sewing project or something that will see slow and steady progress, adding some new bottoms to your handmade wardrobe can be very useful. We also swear by dungarees during this in-between weather and beyond. They will love almost every layer you pair them with!

There is just nothing quite like indulging in sewing a jacket. It’s a garment you will happily invest a little more time in as it is something that should last you years. Whether you pick a quilted jacket, casual-cool blazers, wear-with-everything waistcoat, or throw-it-on overcoat, you will be super proud that you made it yourself!
