I often think when I'm putting together this post that I must only see such a tiny proportion of all the fantastic garments sewn with patterns from independent designers and wish that there was an easier way to see more. I try to keep my eye on as many blogs as humanly possible but my blog roll is pretty jam packed each time I open Bloglovin' and it must be the same for many of you.
I've also developed a bit of an addiction to Instagram over the past few months, both for sharing bits and pieces of the sewing process which I don't think are deserving of a full blog post as well as a quick visual way of keeping up to date with what everyone else is up to. I really enjoy searching sewing related hashtags and finding new people to follow. It was whilst browsing one day that I thought wouldn't it be great to have a hashtag for garments the sewing blog community makes using indie sewing patterns?! That way both you and I can search for the hashtag whenever we feel the need for a bit of inspiration and by posting our makes with this hashtag we create a huge pool of indie related makes to browse and enjoy.
I'm going to keep it nice and simple and suggest we use #indiesewing, both on Twitter and Instagram. I can't wait to find some new to me blogs!
What are you sewing at the moment?
