Any seamstress with a taste for the out-of-the-ordinary has likely been disappointed by the offerings of most pattern companies, which tend to cater to the mainstream. If you’re hankering for something a little bit on the dark side, then look no further than Be My Goth Patterns!
I had the pleasure of reviewing the Lucinda top and Lucinda skirt patterns, seen below:
Both pieces are stunning and are the types of garments that people will stop you on the street to ask, WHERE DID YOU GET THAT? I can’t wait for a spare moment to sit down and make myself the Lucinda skirt- I love the fitted high waist and the pleated pockets.
The patterns are professionally drafted in a wide range of sizes with instructions that are in-depth, easy to follow, and include lots of photos.
I’m a HUGE fan of the use of photos in instructions versus those funky line drawings commercial pattern companies tend to use. It’s so much easier to follow along with photos versus those doodles, and I think those drawings are one of the primary reasons that a lot of seamstresses are absolutely terrified of sewing patterns.
Don’t forget to check out the other Be My Goth patterns, as well. (I’m quite smitten with the Florence jacket, though it’s starting to get a little warm here for a coat!)
