The thing I love most about making sewing patterns is seeing what amazing things all of you in the sewing community do with them!
Lately I have been thinking about ways I can show more diversity on my website, blog and social media channels. We are all different shapes and sizes and have different preferences, lifestyles, experiences and ideas, and I want to celebrate and showcase that... but to do that I need your help!
The idea is to create a 'Makers Gallery' where makers can see a wide range of women using the same sewing pattern, so that other makers can feel inspired, as well as be in a better position to make an informed decision about what pattern will suit their body shape, what fabric will work well and what alterations may need to be made to the pattern to achieve a great fit.
Would you like to be part of this project? All you need to do is head to my website and fill out a submission form (direct link in profile). The Makers Gallery will be constantly growing and evolving and I hope it will become an invaluable resource for makers in our community - sharing images of real women, wearing real garments and telling real stories about their lives and making experiences.
I really hope as many of you as possible can be a part of this! #inthefoldsmakersgallery
