Remember my sister and I went to London before the Royal Wedding? Remember we spent around 4 hours in Liberty? Well this has just arrived:
All I have to do is spend £100 and get £15 off..... Here's the wish list:
|A McQueen jade skull scarf|
|early morning wake up call|
|fabric (I wanted to buy this one when we went to the shop, but|
didn't think it would work with the pattern I had in mind....)
|I used to have a Liberty tie up watch, and they're all the rage again|
|and more fabric - something for Ian|
So if the scarf is about £90 I think I may have blown the budget by the time I've reached the Vivienne Westwood skirt!
But this has been an interesting exercise for me. I always sew from commercial patterns and never think to look at what's "hot" on the high street. I know alot of sewing bloggers look at catwalk stills and sew from there, but it never occurred to me to do that. So there's a change a-comin'. I could easily make that Sonia Rykiel stripe skirt and there's a lovely one-button Paul Smith jacket that would look great with it too.
So I'm off to build a file of images I not just like, but LOVE. I 'll carry on working through the stash, but I think some of that fabric's got to be given away. There's just TOO much of it.
Oh, and I won't be using the voucher to purchase more fabric!
Have a good weekend all. We're going back up North to Leeds for the weekend and I'm really looking forward to it.
