Fabric: The most amazing Grey & Blue leopard print in wool. A matching blue satin for the lining, which may or maynot be too heavy as a lining.
Notes: I plan to use selected couture methods to make this coat, and get help with the fitting from an expert. I'll be aiming for warmth, so I plan to slightly lengthen the sleeves and potentially underline the body with thinsulate.
Fabric: Painted Gingham Blueberry Cotton (Sarah Jane Studio) purchased from the now closed Craft Depot in NSW.
Notes: I am a fan of wrap dresses, and honestly I think I own most of the big 4 wrap dress patterns. When I saw Safety Net dress by Gorman (19/20 summer campaign) I knew exactly what fabric I would use and set about finding a similar pattern, it took 4 visits to Spotlight for it to finally be in stock, but I thankfully got it just before christmas in 2019.
Fabric: Stardust double gauze in Amarante
Notes: I'm currently muslining this pattern out in rayon, and I definitely have some thoughts on improving the pattern. I love the fabric, so I'll reserve judgement on using the pattern until it's finished. So basically this one is a maybe.
Fabric: Rayon - yet to be decided.
Notes: Rayon Pj's are my favourite pjs to wear, however they have a habit of shrinking, so I'm going prewash my rayon several times in a row and hopefully that will help. After trying on a friends pair, I may raise the waist a tad. Also I won't be adding piping, while aesthetically pleasing, I don't find it comfortable to sleep in.
Pattern: Lisa Dress by Tessuti Patterns
Fabric: Sketching in class from the shop
Notes: I am extremely excited to finally be making the Lisa dress up. I got to try this on a while back, and know that I need to size down and like most of the Tessuti patterns I need to redraft the armholes. I really hope the gathering doesn't give off a maternity vibe, but I'll still wear it regardless.
