Fall is in the air! The nights are cooler, the cider is flowing, and football season is in full swing. This past weekend I checked a few things off my fall bucket list – got pumpkins and straw bales to decorate the porch, drank a pumpkin spice latte, and broke out this gingham button down. Fall is one of my favorite seasons for clothes – hello sweaters, boots, and flannel. This shirt is made of cotton gingham, but I plan on using this making some flannels.
I got this pattern after making my light blue gingham button down that didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted. I like the looser fit and more modern style of this pattern, plus I thought making it was a little bit easier.
