Fall 2021 Trends To Sew For Your Doll!

With fall 2021 right around the corner, we’ve rounded up some great fall patterns for you to work on for your doll!  This trend report was inspired by top designers’ looks from Fall 2021 ready-to-wear runways, and we’ve found some patterns that will help you “steal the look”  for your fashion-minded doll!

Bonus Giveaway! Scroll down to the bottom of this post to learn more and leave a comment telling us what you’re looking forward to most this fall!

 

1.  SWEATER VESTS

One charming trend we’re seeing this fall is sweater vests!  Sweater vests have become increasingly popular among Gen-Zers through popular social media sites and are now hitting the runways. This trend is also perfect for fall because they have a very academic vibe for the back-to-school season.  Try layering these sweater vests over a button-down shirt and pairing them with some bootcut pants to complete the trend.  Grab your knitting needles, and take a look at the patterns listed below for starters:

  

 

2.  HEAD-TO-TOE DENIM

Another popular trend for the upcoming season is head-to-toe denim.  The “Canadian Tuxedo” is back and prominent for ready-to-wear fashion.  Try making a pair of jeans or a denim skirt and pairing it with a chambray button-down shirt and a denim jacket to complete the look.  Alternatively, you could make a chambray dress with a denim jacket over it.  Either way you can’t go wrong with this trend!  Pixie Faire has plenty of denim/chambray-friendly patterns for a variety of doll sizes:

  

 

 

3.  STATEMENT COATS

Statement coats are the perfect trend for the coming fall season!  Try making your doll coat with a fun print or texture to help her stand out and also keep her warm when those chilly, fall breezes hit.  Adding details like embellishments or zippers will give a coat extra pizazz.  Check out one of these patterns to start your project:

  

 

4. MIDI SKIRTS

Instead of the mini skirts that were popular during the summer, midi skirts are what’s on trend for the fall.  Midi skirts (or dresses) have longer hem lengths that will fall anywhere between below the knee and above the ankle.  You can start by taking a look at these patterns:

 

  

 

5.  FLARE PANTS

The final fall trend on this list is the ever-so-70s inspired flare pants that are making a comeback!  Pant leg style is starting to trend away from the skinny leg and back towards bootcut leg and even the flare leg which  have been popular in decades past.  You can make these pants for your doll out of denim for a casual, everyday look or with a bold print or color for something more unique.  Check out these patterns for some project inspiration:

 

  

 

FALL 2021 COLOR PALATTE

When thinking about starting your projects, always consider what you’re making them out of!  A great way to make sure your projects stay on-trend is to create them using “in” colors and prints.  According to the Pantone Trend Report, this season’s colors are surprisingly bright for fall.  Other popular colors that have been seen on the runway and on the streets that weren’t listed by Pantone are colors like lilac and lime green. 

 

FALL 2021 TEXTURES & PRINTS

The popular prints and textures this season are bold, colored leather, leopard print, acid wash denim, and sequins (especially using sequins for casual, everyday clothes).  Mixing these prints and colors are a sure-fire way to give your doll a trendy look for the coming season!

For Fall I am looking forward to the colors of coppers, golds, burnt oranges and burnt reds. Loved seeing the trends for this year. The flare pants bell bottoms take me back to my high school years. I did save some so might have to try them on and maybe even where them, since they will be back in style
