June has been Indie Pattern Month and the Monthly Stitch has been celebrating independent sewing pattern designers with a mix of sewing contests and a variety of interesting interviews from around the sewing community.
It has certainly been a busy sewing month for me. I started almost as soon as this month’s events were announced ordering fabric from the internet. (How organised was that!) My first make was the Lucinda Shirt from Be My Goth. I have to say this took me quite some time to make – about 5 weeks, but I make the deadline for the New to Me contest in the second week.
All in all a very productive month of sewing. I’ve enjoyed immensely the challenges and hearing from so many designers too.
