The Amy and other goodies!!

Hello lovely people!
It's been busy in the studio of Shelley. I'm working on a clothing production (NDA) and that has been my bread and butter for a while, and for a while longer.


I also invested in another serger for this project. Really happy about having twin sergers.


I'm working on the NVL patterns, and The Amy is done and shipping, so if you want the pattern, it's available in my Etsy store. I'm working on the next pattern right now and once I re-draw the cover, I'll announce it.

I've also taken on another dress from one of my kickstarter backers.

Plus, I made tiki shirts for animatronic puppets, because, because.


So much going on!
Whew!

I need to make some time to go through my vintage catalogs for catalog Sunday so I can post more images. I'm running really low on my scans.

Okay lovely people, that's it for now. I'm super tired and I just had a beer on an empty stomach, so I need to go to bed.

Tomorrow is a trip to the fabric store to get some supplies. Eep!

Have a great day!

The Amy pattern is available!

Hello lovely people.

My latest repro pattern, The Amy, is now available for paper pre-order in my Etsy store, or the available PDFs are up and ready for purchase. Sizes range from 40 bust to 60 bust! W00T

The pattern is a very simple economical early-mid 40s style with scalloped sleeve options and a hart-shaped neckline. It's ideal for a beginner sewer.

Check it out, tell a friend, and yay sewing!

What Have I been up to!

Man, oh man!

Times, they sure have been busy for me. Gotta hustle for that cash, yo. You know how it is.
You all know about my sewing for the costume makers, Anovos, but I have also been in the interwebs media a bit too!

I know these are a little late in mentioning, because, gotta do that hustle, yo, but they did make me quite proud to be in them and I wanted to share them with you.

I was interviewed for last month's Jan/Feb issue of Sewn magazine! It was an awesome spread, you here is the cover for the issue I was featured in. I know, I know I am so late, and I apologize, but know that I just gots the works ahead of me.


Also, earlier last year, I was contacted with data that I was one of the most popular plus size sewing blogs in the internet!

I used to be #4 but again, the hustle, yo! I'll get back up there as I get more posts into the blog. I'm sure you lovely people will help to get me up there too!


Let's see, what else have I been up to? Not much aside from working on sewing and creating my plus size patterns! My update website is in the cue, and I hope to get that started this month, so I can begin selling patterns on my own site instead of 3rd party sellers. 

I also plan to offer wholesale pricing for the paper patterns once I get a few more patterns in stock, so international buyers won't have to pay monster shipping when they can buy it local from other indie pattern sellers. More info on that later, so if you are a reseller, reach out to me on the next time I post about this and I'll give you my price list on the patterns.

Whew! So much stuff.

Thanks all for putting up with me. I often feel like I drop the ball sometimes with all I have to do to keep my head above water, but I'm glad I have this community to feel good about it all.

Thanks!
