It’s that time of the month again, pay day is here and my wish list has grown. Sadly, what with booking holidays and all of that stuff I didn’t manage to get much from last month’s wish list but I am definitely still lusting after it. That being said I still plan to add to it, you can’t stop a girl from wishing.
There have been quite a few pattern releases creeping up on us and I’m need of a wardrobe update, what with this so called summer approaching. (Sun if you’re reading please start shining soon.)
But here’s an older pattern that I’m surprised I haven’t bought yet but have definitely been lusting over and that is the Tilly and the Buttons Francoise.
This classic 60s shape can be made in everything from classic fabrics to jazzier pattern fabrics. I love the sleeveless version and feel it will be the perfect addition to my handmade wardrobe.
I’m also really loving Meghan Nielsen patterns at the moment. There are quite a few so it’s hard to choose one. But if I had to, I think my current favourite is this one from the Darling Range. I quite like the ease of the unfitted version and think it will make a great casual summer dress in a light chambray. Perfect for travelling and when you don’t want something clinging to you in the heat.
Now there’s no hiding the fact that I love dungarees. I already have the Kwik Sew K1438 dungaree pattern as a wip but that doesn’t stop me lusting after the Pauline Alice Turia dungarees. I’ve seen quite a few bloggers making them and I think it’s about time I made my own.
Alongside, a bunch of new patterns I have of course been eyeing up some new fabric.
First up a stiped jersey. I love a striped top, well who doesn’t? But as of yet I haven’t actually sewn one myself. So I’m very tempted to rectify this with this really cool stripe jersey. I like how the stripes are zig zag which I think adds a cool twist.
It’s no secret that I love a print but this time I have one that isn’t a floral! I really like this lip print fabric and think it would make a great jumpsuit.
Remember those Turia dungarees? Now how about those in this awesome floral denim fabric? Yes, just perfect.
Now that’s all for this months pay day sewing wish list. Having just booked a holiday I need to be a bit more careful with how I spend my money so I can spend it all on lovely sewing things when I go away. What’s better than visiting sewing shops in places you’ve never been before? Currently I’m off to Vancouver, Portland and Seattle so any recommendations, please send them my way!
What’s on your pay day sewing wish list? What patterns and fabric did you buy last month?
