Blimey, being involved in a project like Sewing Indie Month is one way to get your September off to a flying start and blow away the summer holiday cobwebs!! There’s been loads going on. Here’s a little round-up of what I’ve been involved with….
** A little heads-up before I start – the PDF pattern bundle sale (which my Walkley vest and dress pattern is included in) has been extended for 2 more days!! You now have until Saturday 12th September to get 10 fabulous indie sewing patterns for just $38 (approx. £25!!!) with 20% of the proceeds going to Women for Women – a charity helping women who are facing violence, marginalisation and poverty because of war and conflict. If that’s not enough, you’ll also get a coupon for 15% off at Grey’s Fabric and Notions!! **
So, back to what’s been happening so far….
I was interviewed by Betsy of Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick patterns for her blog. Betsy is a brilliant interviewer and came up with some really thoughtful questions which I enjoyed sitting down to think about. Have a read here.
Blog Reviews of my MIY Walkley Sewing Pattern
There have been some fabulous blogger reviews of my MIY Collection Walkley vest and dress sewing pattern, with some excellent advice on hacks and workarounds for various style and fit requirements:
First up 2 gorgeous versions from Cation Designs in stripe and plain. Read her review for an excellent lesson in how knit fabrics are not all the same!
Next, a cute floral version with a clever workaround for anyone who thinks a boat neck won’t work for them by Magpie Makery.
And another stripey version of the dress by Lisa at Paprika Patterns. Lisa has chosen a different way to finish the neck and used an ingenious method for eliminating excess fabric at the back of the dress for a novel sway back adjustment, which I have to say I love!
And I love this striped version by Winnie at Scruffy Badger Time. Read her thoughts on deliberate stripe matching and mis-matching, quick sews and making a super versatile top.
So, that’s it for now lovely readers, there will be more goings on here and on all the other participating designers’ blogs over the month of September, but in the meantime – get your bundle of 10 amazing PDF patterns now before it’s too late!
