Patterns for sale
EDIT: Well you lot are keen! Those patterns all went within 30 minutes of posting, which was very gratifying, thank you :-)
We then searched through and found a few more that we were happy to sell. Some assorted multi-panel pattern fun. And guess what happened...? Yep, they also sold super swiftly. Sorry for those who were disappointed to miss out.
Anyway, I'm so thrilled that you're up for playing with these sorts of quirky patterns that I'm going to share something else exciting with you... But you'll have to visit the new post for more information.
This studio clear-out continues!
We skipped a load of stuff yesterday, I got more of my supplies moved onto the boat over the weekend, and we are having loads of furniture and bric-a-brac collected by the British Heart Foundation next week. It's all go!
Amongst our patterns are various old test versions and experimental bits, including many multi-panel Birds Wing inspired pieces. Since I'm keen for others to take some of these ideas forward, I thought I'd better list them here. Please note, however, that the majority of these corsets were constructed using our twin-needle machine and antique-inspired seam. What these means, to be straightforward, is that the included seam allowance (of approx. 1.3cmm, just over 1/2", if I remember correctly) is specifically geared toward that particular construction and our particular fabric choices. Ie: when you do your first toile or test piece, you will probably end up with something that isn't quite the marked size. Please buy the patterns with this in mind, accepting that the best buyers for these are people who are happy to toile and test and have a play. These are not ready-made, perfect-from-the-box, patterns. We may offer such things in the future, but for now these are advanced glimpses of our approach to pattern-development. Adjustment and alterations should be expected. Each of these patterns is designed to be sewn from the bottom up. I cannot remember if they have all been trued as they were stepping stones rather than perfectly finished patterns, but they are certainly true from the bottom to the waist, so this is why we recommend sewing from the bottom up, at least on your first attempt.
I should also say that I am happy for these patterns to be developed in a commercial context, provided you are a small business (ie: fewer than three employees), as I'd like to support my corsetmaking friends with these things. Please do not, however, sell copies, gradings, or adaptations of the actual patterns.
So without further ado...
