If you have been reading my blog for the last couple of months you would be aware that I love a good sewing challenge. The monthly stitch is my favourite. Each month they offer a theme or a challenge. Seeing others interpret the challenge is very inspiring. Having a sewing focus with a deadline, for me, is very motivational.
I have decided to get involved and I am sponsoring the week 4 competition – Indie Fan girl. The purpose of this challenge is to make 2 or more garments to create an outfit from a single designer.
I am all about Independent patterns. I have curated a fantastic list of Independent Designers. At the moment there are over 130 designers with more added all of the time.
To enter the draw, you need to write a post about your outfit and publish it on The Monthly Stitch blog during the last week of June. Full details are on The monthly Stitch.
he prize that I am throwing in the ring is a $50 gift voucher from Stitch56. They are a great online Aussie retailer that stock a wide selection in independent designer patterns.
At the moment I have a little crush on Sewaholic. Tasia has lots of great wardrobe basics that go extremely well together.
Here are two other outfit options from Sewaholic.
I am all about Independent and at the moment I only make from indie patterns. I have curated a fantastic list of Independent Designers. There are over 130 designers and the list continues to grow The list is actually a simple searchable database and there is something there for everyone!
Not sure where to begin. I am more than happy to point you in a “designer” direction. Leave your idea in the comments and I will get back to you.
