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.
L-R Cloud 9 – Yucca , Liberty – Day Dream , Art Gallery – Nightfall Lunation
After spending all of my hard earned pennies on all the fabric I bought on my recent holiday, not only have I crossed a bunch off of my wish list but I also have too much fabric! (If that is such a thing.) So with that in mind I have recently been hunting for new patterns to try and put all this fabric to good use. So this Pay Day wish list is pattern packed!
While I am yet to make a Named Pattern, their new pattern collection looks set to to change that. The styling, the modern styles. I love! So there are quite a few on my wish list but I think the one I am lusting after the most is the Helmi Tunic. I like the relaxed fit tunic and the neckline. But I think the shirt will be great to layer under pinafores or paired with skirts in the winter.
Since making my Butterick B5030 I can’t get enough of wrap dresses. Why has it taken me so long to wear them? They are so flattering! We all know I love the Wear Lemonade patterns but I really like the Dita and I like the fact it can be worn either way. From the promotional mages I’ve seen I think I really like the wrap at the back.
I’ve always loved Madalynne’s bra patterns so when I heard she was bringing out patterns with Simplicity I was eager to try them. So these two patterns were high on my wish list. They were quickly taken off my wish list and put into my pattern collection when I saw the Simplicity patterns at half price over on Jaycotts.
