Is it just me or does it seem as if more sewists are sewing with Indie Patterns? Is this another off shoot of 2020 and how it's changed our lifestyles? I know I've written about this topic before, quite a few times actually, but especially here. And some of the makes I've made recently and like most are made from an Indie Pattern.
Some days I even wonder if the Big 4 are going to survive? There are now quite a few Indie Patterns for fat girls by fat girl designers AND quite a few of the Indie Pattern designers have sized their patterns up to larger sizes, 30+. Then there was that whole fiasco with the McCalls printing plant being shut down due to hackers which stopped EVERYONE from printing patterns!
Indie Patterns and PDF printing that seemed as if it would never be the mainstream seems to be all anyone talks about and uses now. I've even bought and had some PDF patterns printed and shipped to me.
So this is the first Question of the Day for 2021? Have you noticed a change in your wardrobe due to the pandemic? And if so, are you filling the need with items you're sewing from RTW, Big4 or Indie Patterns?
My sewing is changing too. This is what's on my cutting table right now...
Talk back to me! Let me know how you ended your sewing in 2020 and how you're moving into 2021?
Also, thank you to everyone who responded to my last couple of posts! I know I've been posting erratically and so appreciate that y'all keep showing up!
...as always more later!
