Hey, guess what? It’s July! Which officially means Indie Pattern Month is over for another year. However, it’s not quite the end of the indie designer inspiration posts and interviews – we were running a little late with the last three, so they’re on their way. Plus, we have a couple more lined up from some great indie businesses that have donated prizes for the final sewing contest – the pattern bundle contest! Stay tuned later this week for more details on those….
But for now, let’s talk about Closet Case Patterns!
Closet Case Patterns is one of our fabulous returning sponsors for Indie Pattern Month 2016. Based in Canada, Heather from Closet Case designs fabulous, modern sewing patterns for women. You’ve probably heard of at least one or two of her patterns – her Ginger jeans pattern took the online sewing world by storm and saw a flurry of jeans being made all around the world.
Today, we’re taking a closer look at another of her patterns – the Sallie jumpsuit and maxi dress.
The Sallie pattern is a knit dress or jumpsuit, with a groovy 70’s vibe to it. There are two variations for the top – either a self-lined V-neck kimono tee style with a tie neck, or a strappy singlet with shoulder ties. And with either wide leg trousers, culottes, or a maxi skirt with side splits, you’ve got lots of options to mix and match!
Want some inspiration? Here’s some gorgeous Sallie garments from around the blog’o’sphere….

All very nice, I LOVE the fabric used for the jumpsuit created by Crafting a Rainbow!
