What I've been up to with Sew Indie Month - SIM

A few weeks ago Seamstress Erin interviewed me on her blog seamstresserin.com as part of the SIM festivities.  Check it out if you haven't already (it's a few weeks old so scroll down to Sept 4).

As part of Sewing Indie Month, I had the pleasure of getting to know Peggy of Sew House Seven. She and I talked about Sewing & Style (like I’ve done with fellow sewing bloggers in the past) and it was great to get to know her and her pattern company a bit better.      I am Peggy Mead of Sew House Seven – an independent pattern company that I launched in 2014.  I am currently based out of my home in Portland, Oregon.  I have a long history in the apparel industry as a pattern maker, designer and surface designer.  I had dreamed of designing my own line of patterns for years I just never thought it could be a reality until recently.  Sew House Seven was created from my need to return to my original passion of sewing and creating and a desire to leave the world of fast fashion behind me.  …


Also, last week I gave a tutorial on Sew Liberated's blog on adjusting the Paloma Top pattern for woven fabrics.  Take a look at that site for my post SewLiberated.com .



I also posted a Tutorial by Betsy of SBCC last week.  She showed us how to adjust the Alberta Street Pencil Skirt pattern for petites and add cargo pockets so check out my last post if you missed that.
