Regular readers of this blog will know that I’m not the type of sewist who snaps up the latest indie patterns as soon as they’re released. In fact, I hardly ever buy any patterns at all, mostly due to my limited sewing time, limited disposable income, and very specific tastes in clothing from both stylistic and functional standpoints.
BUT. I am thrilled to see that Debbie of Lily Sage & Co has started releasing women’s sewing patterns. Debbie is hands down my style icon, and I am a huge fan of her work. She has a very unique, fresh, and modern aesthetic, and she isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of traditional fashion and come up with some really exciting and — dare I say it — thought–provoking garments. And let’s face it, she has a killer body and can pull off just about any garment you can imagine. Go Debbie!
She just released her first women’s sewing pattern, the Sea Change top, which you can check out in her store. There’s even a discount code for the next 7 days. She also has a girl’s dress pattern, the Twirl to Me dress, that she released a few weeks ago. I absolutely cannot wait to see what she comes up with next, and I’m looking forward to building my own fabulous Debbie-inspired wardrobe. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly be a bigger Debbie fangirl, she goes and starts releasing her original designs. Ahhhh!
For the record, Debbie isn’t paying me to say any of this, and in fact, she has no idea that I’m writing this post at all. I’m not affiliated with her or her pattern company in any way. I’m just a huge fangirl and want to share the love. 🙂
In conclusion, I’m absolutely thrilled to see such a fresh, modern aesthetic injected into the realm of indie sewing patterns, and I wish Debbie the best of luck in her new endeavor. Hooray!
