Before you check out my last interview wrapping up Indie pattern month have you popped over to The Monthly Stitch and voted for Septembers challenge yet? It’s a close one, I won’t tell you which challenge theme is winning just yet but you have until the 31st to have your say.
Right, on to the interview: today is Catja of Gjeometry’s turn!
If you missed the last few interviews, here is where to read about their awesomeness:
- Penny of Dresses and Me
- Lizzie of Busy Lizzie
- Rachel of House of Pinheiro
- Heather from Heather’s Hobbies
- Sarah of Sew Love Tea Do
- Josie of Handmade by Josie
What do you like the most about sewing with indie patterns?
The fact that the patterns are relevant. Often the indie designers have their own blog as well as chat on Twitter, so they are listening to what sewists are actually sewing and wearing as well as heeding advice about what sewists like and dislike about a sewing pattern. They are designing more with the average sewist in mind who is as much interested in the fit as in the style
What’s your favourite Indie pattern/favourite indie pattern company, and why?
I have not sewn enough indie sewing patterns to have a favourite sewing pattern or designer…yet. But, stay tuned! I now have so many wonderful independent designers and patterns on my radar and I plan on immersing myself in a whirlwind of sewing these up.
What’s your favourite thing you’ve made from an indie pattern?
Favourite indie patterns I’ve sewn, to date, are:
Fleecy Hoody by Sew Liberated (from Craftsy, Sewing With Knits course)
Edit 30.07.2013: Catja has also made the fabulous Cabarita!
Which indie pattern are you planning on making next?
Indie patterns that I plan on making next: Sewaholic Crescent Skirt;
What indie patterns are on your wish list?
Thanks so much to you and Kat for hosting this terrific sewalong! I’ve learned about so many new indie sewing pattern designers and just can’t wait to get started sewing them!
Thank you Catja, it was awesome to have you sewing along with us. I am excited to see your Elisalex dress, I know you’ll put your own special spin on it and it will be fabulous!
