BIG (good) changes coming! Read on...
Because I apparently don't have enough to do (haha...), I have decided that now is the time to finally overhaul our entire pattern line. A lot has changed in the world of indie patterns since we first launched ours almost TEN years ago, and we've learned a lot as well. This is a huge amount of work redrafting, editing, digitizing, writing, and yelling at technology. However, the end result will be fabulous:
- MULTI-SIZE pattern packs
- PDF patterns with layers allowing toggled size printing
- Fully updated drafts on several styles
- Large format available with PDF patterns
- Improved instructions
- Typos and whoopsies fixed
- Paper pattern envelopes (no more plastic)
And more! Kits will be updated accordingly as well.
What does this mean for the current pattern and kit line?
We will have a blowout Black Friday sale the week of US Thanksgiving (around Nov. 21). All paper patterns and kits will be marked down significantly. Once they sell out, that's it. We will temporarily close the digital pattern Etsy shop in early December. Patreon coupon club members will get early sale notification.
We will restock some kit sizes between now and then, but we do not plan to restock paper patterns. This will help us conserve funds to put toward developing the new line.
We will launch the shiny new updated patterns and kits in early 2023. Hooray!
What should customers do?
If you know you want a specific paper pattern or kit before 2023, buy it now or try your luck in our upcoming Black Friday sale. Buy digital patterns before December 1.
The support of our customers makes this update possible. Thank you.
I’m excited to read of changes for 2023. I’m loving the clothing from 1890-1910 so the two corset patterns for that period are my favorites. I’m sure I will love the changes.
