In June I participated in every weekly contest for IPM2015 and it was great fun! I’ve discovered some great new Indie designers and seamstresses/bloggers in the process. Plus I won some great prizes – thanks to everyone who voted for me.
I’ve never used a Lekala pattern but am pretty excited – you add your measurements and the pattern you get is specifically tailored to you! How brilliant is that? Great for me as I often combine three sizes. The patterns I chose (after 3 weeks of changing my mind) were these:
During week 2 (theme: separates) for my Maritime shorts & Sorbetto top I won a Sewaholic PDF pattern of my choice and a Named PDF pattern of my choice. Again I’ve never used either of these designers. In the end I decided to challenge myself with the Robson Coat and the Alpi Chinos.
I’m quite excited to get cracking on all of these, but after a month of sewing for myself I have a few projects for other people that I need to focus on (well after I finish my 3rd Datura blouse – which of course was an absolute necessity this weekend).
