Project Indie – who won??

Wow, what an amazing response we had to Project Indie! Three utterly amazing entries, and a huge number of you voting and giving feedback on all of the designs – yay! (Just goes to show – we’re all kinda fond of indie patterns, aren’t we?! 😉

We’d also like to give a huge thank-you to our guest judges and sponsors – Kristiann from Victory Patterns, who will be mentoring the winner, and Penny from Dresses & Me who will be stocking their first pattern in her shop.

And now, the time has come to announce the winner! Woo hoo!

Gosh, it was a tough contest though. All three entries were amazing, and all so different! We really wish we could have had three winners, but sadly, one had to be chosen.

(We’re really hoping the other two will go ahead and release their patterns though!)

So, who was it?



*drumroll please*




The winner is…….






Helena from GrayDay Patterns!

Helena designed the Sandpoint Top – a loose-fitting tshirt with a cowl neck at the back and a clever neck strap to keep the shoulders in place. A lot of you commented on how casual yet elegant the design is, and how you could imagine both wearing it during the day, or for a night out on the town in a slinky fabric.

We’re really excited to be working with Helena to release her first pattern and kick off her indie pattern label. Stay tuned for more details – when it’s ready for pattern testing and for release, you’ll all be the first to know! 🙂

We’ll also keep you up to date with the other two designers – Lindsay Woodward and English Girl At Home – and let you know when their patterns will be released.

Have you been inspired by Project Indie? Wishing you’d entered? Well, we’re planning on running it again next year, so start thinking of your designs folks! 😉

  3. Oooh, congrats, very nice top! And, you know that I love a back cowl as I just finished sewing a dress with one! It has a tie, instead of a strap across the back, but I think I like the strap better as you can wear a sweater over it without a ‘lump’ where the ties are. Looking forward to sewing your top. Here is the link to my dress, it is a Burda pattern:


  4. Congratulations, Helena!!!
    And wonderful designs from Lindsay and English Girl at Home – such a diffffficult choice & also hope you’ll both go ahead with your designs & patterns.
    Will look forward to hearing how everyone’s doing in the coming year –
    xx del
