The Perfect Pattern Parcel

I just love it when creative people collaborate to come up with even more creative ideas. My friends at Made with Moxie and Imagine Gnats have teamed up to create an ingenious program for sewers by curating a collection of sewing patterns designed by independent pattern designers. Proceeds during the duration of the sale go to Donor’s Choice, their featured charity for March. This curated set has a retail value of over $48, BUT, the kicker? they’re letting YOU name your price. That’s right. YOU get to decide what this amazing curated set of patterns is worth to you. But don’t wait too long, the first Perfect Pattern Parcel released on March 7th and will only run for two weeks!!

The first PPP is perfect for some “me” sewing. It is geared towards women + has lots of options to extend your Spring Wardrobe.

I chose to sew up the Dixie DIY Summer Concert Tee (included in Perfect Pattern Parcel #1). Below are some photos of the top I made. I can’t wait to wear it all Spring long, it is SUCH a staple!

Here is some extended info on The Perfect Pattern Parcel:

About PPP:
Put together two entrepreneurial makers driven by their internal voices and one self-taught hacker with an “if you build it, they will come” mentality, and Perfect Pattern Parcel was born. We are passionate about supporting independent designers in their craft and fostering a community of makers to grow. Our mission is to offer high-quality pdf sewing patterns written by indie designers while supporting children’s education.
About Donors Choose:
Donors Choose is an organization that matches up the needs of teachers and their students for specific projects with willing donors. The funds raised from each Pattern Parcel sale will go to help K-12 students in minimizing educational inequality and encourage a community where children have the tools and experiences necessary for an excellent education.
About Parcel #1:
Pattern Parcel #1 includes sewing patterns for women that are modern classics, featuring both flattering silhouettes and garments that are comfortable to wear. From a new little black dress to weekend play wear, the patterns in Parcel #1 have got you covered.
Support Indie Designers
Independent designers create patterns that are innovative, imaginative and in line with current style trends. Their patterns encompass a broad range of sizes and fabulous “out of the envelope” fit because they’re thoroughly tested by real people. With detailed and well-explained instructions, these patterns often teach as you sew. Independent designers are approachable, providing support, suggestions, publishing additions to your favorite designs, and hosting interactive sewing events. When we are patrons of indie designers, we are supporting small, mostly women owned, businesses. We are developing the community around us. We are helping to making dream come true.

  1. I love this idea. It lets me try patterns that I otherwise would not have bought (due to price, concerns about fit, etc.) at a reasonable price. Did you lengthen the front of the shirt? It seems longer than the one in the photos included in the pattern.
