Week six's creation is in full swing and I have had so many ideas this week so I thought I would post my ideas so far.
Early in the week I had a trip to Oxford Street to go to John Lewis to have a look around the most exciting department, which is of course the Haberdashery department. However I was a little disappointed in that all the patterns I found in the catalogues were sold out. Saddness. So I came home, after a little shopping of course and log into sew direct. A few days later the patterns I ordered arrived.
The patterns I got were :
1. McCalls easy M6439, which is a pattern for 4 fun skirts with a few frills.2. McCalls easy M6553, which is a dress with a lot of flowy material at the back. Very excited for that one.
3. Butterick B5695, which is a selection of gloves and is on top above. I would really like a pair of leather gloves but the ones I have found in shops are either too expensive or so cheap they look like they would break! I shall make my own then its ok if they break ha!
4. Very easy Vogue V8815, which is a selection of different peplum tops. Instantly wanted to make this one. So the ideas started to roll.

While I was out shopping I treated myself to a couple of things, one being this delightfully fun jacket from Forever21, a shop I have fallen in love with recently. I have been looking for a leather jacket and a denim jacket for a while now but didn't want to spend too much money and didn't want a cheap looking one. This was the perfect option to go for. Love it.
After buying the jacket and the patterns I ordered all I could think about was a design with leather sleeves I also had leather on my mind from last week and it was really nice to work with.

With this pattern in mind I had a look around to get some inspiration and see what can be done.
These pieces have given me the inspiration I needed. The mix of soft materials with leather will look great. Off I go!!!
