This past month I’ve been on a self imposed spending ban, which didn’t go particularly well. With the release of the Republique du Chiffon Ernest coat, I needed to make a winter coat. So I had to buy the pattern and of course the material to go with it. I’ve also found my AW wardrobe to be lacking in the me made department so I’ve been having to buy bits here and there. Now I have enough to keep my occupied I shouldn’t really be spending anymore but here’s what I have my eye on at the moment!
My one rtw weakness has always been khaki green utility style jackets (I own 7 different styles) I never felt the need to make one of my own but then enters the Kelly Anorak from Closet Case Files. It looks like it might be a challenge but I want to add to my utility jacket with a me made one.
Continuing on the wardrobe staple theme, pinafores definitely fall into that category. They are perfect for stylish A/W layering and the Ivy Pinafore from Jennifer Lauren is fab! The gable top is pretty great too.
What’s a pay day wish list without a Wear Lemonade pattern? This time I am lusting over the Maria Jacket. I like the classic shape and think it will look great in some statement fabric.
