October is a magical time. Almost half the world feels the retreat of summer and the approach of chilly autumn. With the foliage changing, harvests in full swing, and nights getting colder, why not celebrate those seasonal parties with a slight twist to your wardrobe?

Winona has a variety of design options that will transition you from summer to fall, day to night. First, it features bell sleeves and a full, floor-length skirt constructed from four panels. Version 2 has seam lines in the sleeve and bottom skirt panels, so you can add a contrast fabric to the sleeve insets and bottom skirt panels. Play with some stretch lace, or a fun, vibrant color, or opt to remove the bottom skirt panels altogether and make a shorter dress. To create a fitted sleeve and V-neck version of the maxi dress, see this month's "Block Paper Scissors" article. This month's "Sewing Specifics" article will show you how to apply appliqué to the neckline to add some fun to your wardrobe!

Design number: 3047
