It has been a while since my last blog post – and I feel like every post opens with this sentence (2018 hasn’t featured many blog posts so far!) – but this time I have good reason.
Over the spring/summer I was chipping away at a little project… Inspired by lots of lovely messages I had received over the last year or so in relation to my self-drafted fully lined pencil skirt (and other projects), I decided to start selling my own sewing patterns, which are now available at Pearson and Pope!
I wanted to do it properly, which involved working with professional pattern graders / pattern cutters, and enlisting a fantastic group of pattern testers who gave me lots of helpful feedback on the instructions and any pattern issues. A talented friend of mine helped me with photos and design, and before I knew it, Pearson and Pope was up and running!
This project is very dear to my heart. I have a demanding day job, and children, but have found it so rewarding to put my patterns out there in this way and have been blown away by the response and lovely comments received so far. Now that it’s live though, I can get back to planning some slightly more relaxed sewing, and dusting off this blog, so watch out for more regular posts!
