Indie patterns

Independent pattern makers

I genuinely love craftsmanship and I try to support craftsmen (and -women) in any way I can. That’s why I love the independent pattern making companies that are usually run by one or two enthusiasts who put much time and effort in making nice patterns.

Button down blouse

Uncategorized

When I started working on this top, it was meant to be an exercise in pattern drafting and creating button holes. But this muslin turned out to be very wearable! I drafted the kimono style pattern and added fabric covered buttons on the backside. The sateen finish of the fabric makes it a very versatile top: casual with a pair of jeans or dressed up with a skirt and a pair of heels.

I can highly recommend anyone to adapt a basic shirt pattern by putting some bows or buttons on the backside!

New kid on the blog

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I postponed making a blog for a while now, and decided today that it’s time to get over my fear of maintaining a blog that’s all about me and what I made (sounds selfish, doesn’t it? That’s why I kept postponing it). I hope to make this blog a useful resource for readers that seek for inspiration or tips. To me, this blog hopefully becomes a nice archive of what I’ve made so far – kind of like an online closet.
