Perfect Pattern Parcel #2 is here!
What’s Perfect Pattern Parcel? In a nutshell 5 indie designers bundle 5 of their patterns and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity. Here’s the kicker: you set the price! I purchased Parcel #1 that included many well-known women patterns. This time it’s all sugar and spice and everything nice to sew a pretty spring wardrobe for your little girl.
Hanami Top or Dress by Straight Grain, Hosh Pants by LoubeeClothing, Celestial Tee by Figgy’s, September Tunic & Dress by Too Sweets Patterns,and Caroline Party Dress by Mouse House Creations. BONUS Pattern!!! Prefontaine Shorts by Made With Moxie
I decided to make up Hosh and Hanami for fresh Spring outfit.
The weather has been very Spring like as in rainy and cloudy Sorry for the not so great pictures, but hey the rain turns the grass back green and helps the flowers bud. So why not help the process along than with some sunshine bright floral pants? The fabric is a stretch peach skin twill that I’ve had in the stash a while. What’s so great about the Hosh pattern is that it only has the inseam, so it lends itself perfect for crazy prints that would be a beast to line up. I’ve actually had it in my collection for a while, but a bigger size has been added just in time for PPP#2. Now it goes up to size six! I know what your thinking….Boogie is almost 11. That’s why we sew my dear! I slashed and spread the living day lights out of this pattern, but it was all worth it.
Hanami is a sweet little pattern with many options. I made the peplum style top with tulip flutter sleeves out of a white eyelet.
While I was fine tuning the fitting I remembered that I had not put a tag in it. ”Don’t!” Boogie shirked. I asked her why and she said “No one will believe my that you made it if it has a tag in it!” She knows all the right things to say.

Put together two entrepreneurial makers driven by their internal voices and one self-taught hacker driven by data analytics , 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.
Choose your price:
Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. Independent designers create patterns that are innovative, imaginative and in line with current style trends. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we’re going to allow them to show their support for independent designers in naming their own price for each Parcel.
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.
About Donors Choose:

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.
