Pay Day Wish List

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. If anyone has any recommendations of places to buy lace lingerie fabric do let me know in the comments below!

What are you lusting over this pay day? Has anyone tried any of these patterns? Let me know in the comments below
