Pay Day Sewing Wish List – July Edition

Pay Day this month has crept up on me, I can’t believe we are at the end of the month. Sadly pay day this month has also passed me by. With a holiday looming, my money went as quickly as it came. So this months pay day wish list is mostly sadly just that, wishing. But making sacrifices for a holiday is hardly the biggest hard ship.

Lets jump into my wish list.

First up is fabrics. This month my fabrics are all from Liberty. The reason for this. I have a gift card. My friend very kindly got me a Liberty gift card for my birthday and I have patiently been waiting to get spending. So all my fabric browsing has been on the Liberty website thinking about what lovely fabric I can buy without making a dent in my own bank account. So these are the fabrics I have been lusting after. I sadly don’t have enough for all of them so I will have to make a decision. Let me know in the comments which is your fav. But knowing me I’ll go in store and will end of being wowed by something different.

Pay Day Wish List Dominique Major Liberty Fabric

First up is the Juniper Tana Lawn. Every time I scroll through the Liberty website this fabric catches my eye. My heart says this is my favourite and the red colour way in particular but I am fond of the black with the yellow flowers!

Hard decisions but I have this dress in mind for the red fabric. Dreamy!

Otherwise I really like the girliness of the Delilah fabric in this green. I don’t really have fabrics like it but feel it very me and can imagine lots of dresses made up on this beautiful fabric, perhaps even the Wear Lemonade top that you are about to see in the patterns section.

Lastly is the Lolly Tana Lawn. Again like the  Juniper I’m having a colour dilemma but as much I like the green, my sewing visions are having a red moment. I can imagine the dress I previously mentioned made up in this fabric . Oh Liberty why have you got to make such beautiful fabrics?

I have been really interested in sewing my own bras recently. I’ve seen some beautiful ones popping up on the Internet and seeing as underwear is so damn expensive I have been considering whether this can be a new skill I can learn.

 

The first pattern I have been lusting after is the Boylston Bra by Orange Lingerie and this is mainly because I saw this bra made by Miss Make in this gorgeous Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton and Steel rayon.

Isn’t this just the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? I have some wonderful Liberty scraps left over and I think there will be enough to knock up this bra. Imagine this in the Liberty floral from my Birthday dress, ahhh perfect!

Another bra pattern I have been eyeing up for a while is the Watson bra by Cloth Habit. I really like bras like this, not being particularly blessed in this department is something that has never bothered me as I love easy bras without wires. So much comfort. So the Watson bra is definitely one that could become a sewing staple.

Last up on my pattern wish list is another Wear Lemonade pattern. Back in my Pay Day Sewing Wishlist I included the Lila skirt. I just love the Wear Lemonade patterns, the branding is so on point and their styling is everything! I am tempted to sign up to their take on an Netflix for sewing patterns. I love so many of them it seems like a good investment. My favourite this month is the Falbala blouse. I love a ruffle so it was tie between this and the Leia. See I said I need this subscription.

Lastly, I have a bonus item for this months sewing wish list and it is a book. This month I am intrigued by the new book by Rosie Martin – No Patterns Needed: DIY Couture from Simple Shapes. I’ve seen some beautiful images on Instagram and there are so many things that I can see myself wearing so I might just need to give this book a go. Any one tried it?

So that’s it for this month. What do you think of my picks? Do you have a favourite? What’s on your pay day sewing wish list this month? Let me know in the comments below.
