Indie Pattern Month 2015 has been and gone and my word I enjoyed every day of June for it! Everyday my blog feed with filled with wonderful treats and delights of unknown patterns and new takes on known patterns. Just like with Me Made May my sewing queue just grew and grew. I challenged myself to make something for each of the 4 weeks of June.
I am proud to say I achieved that goal. I was motivated by the fact that there were 7 prizes up for grabs each week so it felt like I had a decent shot at winning something. A free pattern is something I will ALWAYS try to go for – its a win win situation really:
1. I get to use the fabric stash
2. There is a chance of a free pattern
Anyhow I am happy to say I did make the finals 3 times and I won 2 times so yay!
Huge thanks to all who voted for my makes.
Week one I made Sleevelees Moneta
Week 2 I made a Holyburn in Bark cloth and Julia cardigan
Week 3 I made a Lekela shift dress
Week 4 I made 2 Giselle dresses
The tingle of joy at seeing a notification that I was a finalist was the best part 😉 The winning weeks were week 3 &s 4.
So all in all I made 6 garments that I like and get a lot of wear out of. I also got round my pattern buying moratorium by winning 5 patterns! I hope you all also enjoyed IPM as much as I did and here’s to IPM 2016!
Thanks for stopping by and happy sewing chums!
