A Mountain of Your Makes (Part One)

I am long, long overdue at showing off all your incredible, inspiring, and beautiful versions of my patterns, and I’ve accumulated so many over the past 6 months or so (shocking, I know!) that it’s enough to fill not one, not two, but three posts! These are only in rough date order from when I collected them, so if you don’t see your more recent make included, hold on, as it may be in Parts Two or Three (all of the Surf to Summit Tops are yet to come!).

If you want even more inspiration to sew your own activewear (and a peek at a few items coming up in Part Three!), then I highly suggest you look at the entries in the Pattern Review Activewear Contest, which genuinely had me clapping with delight. So many amazing makes, and so many amazing sportswomen!

And, as always, you can buy any of my digital sewing patterns from shop.fehrtrade.com, where you’ll get both fully road-tested multisize patterns in both “print at home” and “print at a copy shop” pdfs, fully illustrated instructions, and the knowledge that the highest percentage of your money is going directly to the designer…

…which allows me to design even more patterns, like the one I’m feverishly trying to finish up to get out to my testers right now!
