You all likely know my sister Jane and I best from Sustain My Craft Habit, where we share nature-inspired craft ideas, upcycling projects and creative, budget-friendly DIYs. But did you know I’m a fashionista at heart and a sewing enthusiast?
Well the secret is out and today I’m announcing the launch of our latest Etsy shop called Sustain My Sewing Habit where we offer PDF sewing patterns for women, men, children and even pets!
A Little About Me, Sonja
Sewing my own clothes since I was 12 years old, I’ve always loved the process of making something essentially out of nothing. It amazed me how one flat piece of fabric could be turned into something wearable and beautiful and so I kept at it.
I went on to study fashion and then started my career working in apparel, developing new product lines. My preference has always been the technical aspect of fashion, less about the design and more about the way in which the pieces are made. Answering questions such as “what does the pattern shape look like?”, “how can I make the clothes fit and feel better?”, “what is the best way to sew the pieces together?” and so on.
Taking all my past apparel knowledge along with my experience running our Sustain My Craft Habit shop and SMCH Stitched shop and applying it to our latest Etsy shop has been a dream that I didn’t even know I had.
In the pattern shop, we have a mix of styles from dresses and pants to tops and apron. As we expand, we’ll be adding more and more styles for childrenswear, menswear and of course pet patterns.
