PR Member Petite Sewist posted a review of new-to-me indie Skinny B*tch Curvy Chick Patterns's Maxi Skirt .

This company is aimed at Petite and Petite Plus seamstresses.

Weren't we asking for a niche indie that fit OUR needs in the recent Colette/Sewaholic discussions? Our prayers might just have been answered!

Petite Sewist has more more reviews coming in the future it seems.

Meanwhile, I have already the FREE PDF of SB322 Tonic T-shirt to try it out.


Prices go from $8 to $13 and the size chart is here



Keeping my fingers crossed and will report back here.
What do you think?

Ooh, thanks for posting! I'll have to check them out... if the patterns are true to size, that XS is exactly me!

Very interesting. I don't particularly care for the styles that are being offered (except for the basic tee shirt pictured above). However, I looked at the designer's blog, and found her blog entry on the importance of sewing multiple muslins to be absolutely correct.

I saw the review and went to the site to investigate. Like nancy 2001, the styles are not exactly what I wear, but I did download the free tee, and bought the knit dress below. I am impressed with the amount of detail on the finished measurements and included them for readers to look at.

Interesting. I'll have to give the free T a try.

I wish they showed the garments on models. I think they'd look much better.

This top (for wovens!) might be a good summer riding top. I prefer the coolness of wovens, but need to be able to move around. Plus it will cover the sports bra just fine.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.
