I'm trying to hold out on buying any more fabric until I've used up what I already have, but as for the patterns, I have to admit I've been getting a little bored of making just the same one or two with a couple of variations. I want a new challenge.
|001: By Hand London Flora Pattern, £14|
That said, I've heard such lovely things about the company that I'd love to give this one a try. A full skirt, and a cute summery bodice seem a bit more "me".
By Hand are also embarking on a little adventure, it seems. They're currently looking for backers to help them kickstart their new fabric printing venture. Imagine being able to design and print your very own fabric, in the UK! I'm very excited about this. If you are too, you can find out more and help them on their way by donating here..
|002: Butterick B5919, $11.98|
So, instead I've found this one, which has a few cute variations to the cut-out at the back of the neck and the collar, which I like. I've always found Butterick patterns easy to follow and construct, so I don't suppose this one will be any different.
|003: Gather Kits Mortmain Dress, £13|
One of the features of the Mortmain is the exposed zip, which I am quite tempted to make with one of these lace zips, in a contrasting colour to the fabric. What do you think?
All I need now is some actual spare time, to get some of this list of "want to makes" actually done.
