Wednesday Weekly New Patterns

Happy Wednesday, makers! It has been an interesting week in the sewing community, with a lot of discussion around pattern sizing. I was in the middle of launching my new size range, so it couldn’t have been more timely! If you want to read more, check out this recap from the CSC, this post from Andi (Sew Pretty in Pink), and this post from Cashmerette. I also published the results of my Curvy Sewing Survey this week to share what I learned and what I am doing about it.
