i love making christmas wishlists – not in a “hey someone buy me this already” way (although, if you want my mailing address ::cough:: i’d be happy to accept gifts ::cough:: lol), but more of a pictorial list of things i would like to eventually buy as my funds free up. don’t pretend like you don’t do it too!
in the spirit of this blog, though, i’ll keep it sewing-related! especially since most everything i ever want is sewing-related anyway ;) oh, and i’m including links for everything so you can buy yourself a prezzie if you find something you fancy – i won’t tell anyone ;)
let’s start with patterns. i need more colette patterns!
colette pattern’s cinnamon slip
have we discussed the cinnamon on this blog yet? DARLING. i recently decided that i have a sudden need for pretty loungewear – silk & flannel slips, matching flannel pajamas, cozy wool socks. no more yoga pants & ratty tshirts. the cinnamon is pretty perfect for this – it even includes how to make a cami instead of a slip.
colette pattern’s chantilly dress
i love the chantilly, but the amount of fabric has always felt a little off-putting to me – i am definitely a lover of fine/expensive fabrics, but yeeesh that’s a lot to buy at once! anyway, i found this gorgeous piece of silk at the thrift store last weekend, and i think it would be perfect for this dress.
colette pattern’s jasmine blouse
i keep seeing everyone else’s versions of these popping up – i want one too!
colette pattern’s oolong dress
as with the jasmine, more and more of these have been appearing on my blog feed & i’m getting more and more jealous that i don’t already have one. hee.
turquiose wool coating from mood – 2.5 yards
i recently won a giveaway on molly‘s blog, and won a wonderful coat/pants pattern (vogue 2925, if you’re curious). I WANT TO MAKE THIS COAT SO BAD. coating fabric is throwing me off, though – not even the expense, just the selection! i thought i wanted a camel-colored wool, but after looking at a bunch of camels & beiges, i’ve decided that tan is boring & i require something more like turquiose. isn’t this turquiose lovely?
dark grey bemberg rayon lining from mood – 3 yards
with coats come lining! i love this dark grey, although a brighter turquoise or teal would be equally swell.
turquiose silk shantung from mood – 3 yards
wrapping up my mood mini-shopping spree, here’s some turquoise silk shantung! this would be perfect for my bombshell dress (that i haven’t started yet because i stalled on fabric choices). gawd, i love turquoise.
pants for real people
i already have the sister book, fit for real people, but they don’t cover pants-fitting at all :( pants are my new favorite thing to torture myself with sewing, need to fine-tine my fit!
burdastyle sewing book
i actually almost bought this right after it released. then i remembered that it’s christmas and i’m supposed to be spending my money on other people ;) still want it, though! i can’t get enough of these “sewing how-to” books & i love when they include patterns.
clover 1/2″ bias tape maker
well, this is pretty boring. i want a bias tape maker. i already have a 1″ but i want to make baby bias tape, because it sounds totally presh.
gingher 5″ snips
these would be a great addition to my gingher shears collection. 5″ snips for cutting notches & threads.
what are some things you’re hoping to get this holiday season? anything i missed here? indulge with me!
