This year I'd like to do a monthly #patterncrush
where I pick the designer whose patterns I'm swooning and drooling over. This month I'm swooning over the pattern collections from @marillawalker.
At £7.50 her patterns are some of the most affordable UK patterns, especially considering that each pattern is a collection of different shapes and styles enabling you to make a variety of outfits from one pattern! My favourite is the #iscashirtdress
. The lines are quirky, without being crazy, simple and not overly girly, which is exactly how I like my patterns. Plus there is a free expansion pack to turn your shirt dress pattern into a fantastic shirt pattern. I loooooove a free expansion pack. The #robertscollection
is INSANE value for money, giving you a whole cute, cosy wardrobe with one pattern. I also like the #mayatop
as a multipurpose wardrobe builder. Go and check out the hashtags and see all the amazing makes. If you're looking for something a little offbeat, a little boxy, and a whole lot of awesome, then spend January sighing over these patterns with me. Better yet, go online and grab one! #notsponsoredjustafan #sewist #sew #sewing #sewcialist #imakemyownclothes #plussizesewing #curvysewing #southafricasews #beingbrokeishard #patternaddict #patternwishlist
