s you may have seen on Instagram earlier this month, we've started carrying a new pattern line that we're very excited about - Sonya Philips' 100 Acts of Sewing. Sonya is a Bay Area artist, who decided to take on sewing 100 garments in a single year as an exploration of personal style, consumerism, body image, and the act of making. She has since published the patterns that she used during her project and the patterns that she has continued to develop since.
here are two tops, two dresses, and a skirt pattern, all of which are available in a large range of sizes. If you're looking for simple, flattering shapes and straightforward sewing, Sonya's patterns might be just what you've been waiting for. You can really make these garments your own with fabric choice and modifications. If you're interested in seeing some great examples of how a handful of patterns could become your whole wardrobe take a look at Sonya's instagram - @sonyaphilips - and the hashtag #100actsofsewing. Also be sure to take a look at Sonya's website where you can see all 100 acts of sewing and learning more about her process and other art work.
