I have this crazy idea of starting my own indie pattern line. It’s totally crazy because I’ve never taken a pattern drafting or design class but reading about some indie pattern designers on the internet like Dixie DIY and Closet Case Files gives me hope!
My idea is to have a line of knit dresses…. that you can mix and match! I have a few self-drafted patterns which I mix and match myself and I just love having options. Plus, knit dresses are amazing! They go together so quickly and mistakes are easily hidden by knits.
The question is, how on earth can I offer a line of mix and match bodices and skirts??
That is where you, my lovely readers, come in.
I have created a short survey (less than 10 questions) asking you about how you would like to see this project take shape.
I would really appreciate if you would share this survey on your facebook and/or twitter. I will be forever grateful! Plus I am offering a small token of my gratitude to one lovely survey-taker. A €10 (or your currency-equivalent) gift certificate to the online craft/sewing supply store of your choice! I know it’s not a huge amount, but I’m a recent graduate with student debt and I would really like to start my own company.
To give you a little idea of what kind of patterns you might expect, here are a couple of my self-drafted makes from me-made-may. So you do the kimono sleeved bodice with the A-line skirt or the patchwork top with the bubble-ish skirt, if you know what I mean.
So you’d really be helping me out by taking this survey and sharing it with the world. I hope you like this idea as much as I do!
