  • The Fabric Store shears ($60)

    They're not on the main website, but the Adelaide outlet has Japanese fabric shears in stock; they're both very nice and an excellent price.

  • Practice bow for archery

    I don't know if this is the exact bow I'll be getting yet, but something in the 30lb draw weight that's a recurve. Pricing seems to range from about $100-$200; I haven't looked into arrows yet.

  • Patternmaking for Fashion Design by Helen Joseph Armstrong

    Don't buy it from the link, it's overpriced as heck because it's an undergrad textbook apparently, but if anyone can find a reasonably-priced second-hand copy that would be great.

  • Buckaroo Bobbins 1880s Western Vests pattern (Patterns of Time, US$12.95)

    This would be my preferred vest pattern, as it has fitting notes for AFAB people. But, it's been out of stock for months.

  • Thread Theory Belvedere Waistcoat PDF Pattern (CA$15)

    Alternatively, the Buckaroo Bobbins vest pattern could probably be done similarly if it ever comes back into stock... but I do like PDF patterns better, and they never go out of stock.

  • Buckaroo Bobbins 1850s-1880s britches pattern (Patterns of Time, US$12.95)

    I want these because it's the closest to a woven equestrian trouser pattern I've found so far. Unfortunately, this is a tissue pattern coming from the US, so shipping is... Unpleasantly expensive.

  • Thread Theory Fulford Jeans PDF pattern (CA$15)

    This can likely wait a while, as I haven't covered woven trousers yet so I don't feel confident taking it on. Yet.

  • Thread Theory Jutland Pants PDF pattern (CA$15)

    I don't feel super confident doing woven pants yet, so this pattern can wait for a while.

  • Thread Theory Goldstream Peacoat PDF pattern (CA$15)

    This pattern can wait as I haven't tackled outerwear yet, plus finding coat-weight good wools is very difficult before winter.

  • Thread Theory Strathcona Henley shirt PDF pattern (CA$15)

    I'm trying to sell the tissue pattern as I found it kinda frustrating to work with, so I'm happy to gift it to someone who wants to buy the PDF version for me.

  • Buckaroo Bobbins 1880s-1890s blouses pattern (Patterns of Time, US$16.95)

    I'm not as enthusiastic about these, but there are some interesting styles. Again, beware the US shipping costs!

    This is by the person behind the silvousplaits YouTube channel that I get hair styles and styling tips from.

  • Game of Thrones: The Official Costume Book (Booktopia, $68.90)

    It's a huge design inspiration, but I don't actually like the show that much past about season 4, so I'd rather have the lookbook.

  • Silk For The Vikings by Marianne Vedeler (Google Play Books, $16)

    One of many recommended books for constructing my Viking garb, that's not available to me for free.

  • Sense & Sensibility Regency undergarments pattern

    This pattern is still undergoing revision, so I'd like to wait until the revision is done - and I'm not feeling confident tackling corsetry yet, but one day... One day I'll have short stays.
