I’ll definitely peruse the pattern books at my local fabric spot, but there is something exciting about trying a pattern that isn’t mass-produced. A pattern made from our peers. A pattern that is on trend and easily altered. A pattern that is blogged about.

Here’s my not-so-exhaustive list of Independent Sewing Pattern Designs that can fuel your 10pm craving to make a new top because they offer PDF sewing patterns. Just print it off, trim and tape and you are on your way to a new piece for your closet!

Note: If you have one to add, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll be happy to update the list with the company and a link to their website.
