Katy posted about making some AP.C. style clothes and then I saw this cute post by Hannah Shuckburgh and it got me thinking.Why don't more of our favorite brands (mainstream and indie) have sewing patterns? I am sure there is some reason. It's complicated, expensive, etc, but it seems like a genius move in this economy.
When I was a kid my mom used to sew up all sorts of designer clothes for me because lots of brands made their patterns available. Right now, Vogue has a few (often too hoity-toity for my taste), and Cynthia Rowley and Builty by Wendy have small lines with Simplicity and then there's the Betsy Ross Pattern Company, but that's about it. One of you genius clothing designers or business people should start a pattern company!
