I am one woman, with several sewing machines (but I can only use one at a time) so I can’t always make every single thing that pops into my head, especially if I’m busy making lots of orders. That’s why I’ve spent this morning adding lots of my designs to Sprout Patterns! It’s an amazing site where you can order sewing patterns printed directly onto the fabric of your choice, and either cut and sew yourself, or pay a bit extra to have someone at Sprout to make it for you!
I have been looking into different ways of expanding my little business for a while, but with the one main rule that it had to be ethical! It’s hard to find manufacturers who are both affordable and ethical, so until now I’ve been a bit stuck. I’ve already been working with Spoonflower for a few years, so I know the quality is excellent, they use eco-friendly inks, only print what is needed, and are generally an excellent company! You can read more about their company values here.
I’ve mostly focused on the Moneta dress by Colette patterns today, but I’ll be adding lots more over the coming days and weeks. It’s available in sizes XS-3XL, which is a US 0-26, or UK 4-30.
Working with Sprout means that I get commission for all my designs, while freeing up time to work on existing orders and new projects, everyone at Sprout and Spoonflower gets paid fairly for their work, and you get custom made clothing (either by you or Sprout!)
