Indie Pattern Month

Indie Pattern Month is being hosted by Mel of the Curious Kiwi, and Kat of Modern Vintage Cupcakes. Head on over to their blogs to find out more, and join in the fun.



Despite, having quite a substantial pattern stash containing both Big 4 patterns and Independent pattern designers, it is the Indie's I tend to reach for the most. 
Case in point, the last few patterns I have made;

Hot Patterns Cabana T shirt
Hot Patterns Superfantastic Shirt
Made By Rae Parsley Pants 
Colette Laurel
Jalie Mens and Boys Rugby Jerseys
and about a dozen different wallets and bags from Michelle patterns.


On my immediate to-do list (this list is really long, so this is just the highlight reel)

Jalie's .... so may Jalies.
Most of the Hot Patterns catalogue, most notably their pant/trouser patterns ;-)
And these beauties below ...


Decades of Style 1930's Capelet
Decades of Style 1950's Object dArt Dress


Onion Coat with cut on Collar.
If you order your patterns from shopOnion, you can even have the instructions in English!

For even more Independent Pattern Designer inspiration, head over to A Good Wardrobe for an ever expanding list.

  1. Yah!! I'm going to do this as well! I was so sad to miss out on the Burda sew-a-long that the Wellington Sewing Bloggers did. I've ordered some patterns from Christine Haynes line and I'm waiting anxious by my mailbox for them to arrive. Thanks for sharing this great list of indie patterns - there are so many great indie designers out there that I've never heard of!

  7. Oh no more temptation. I am trying not to buy any more patterns. Even op shop scores. Man that wagon is easy to fall off too without ore temptation. Sigh.
