What I’ve been up to…

I don’t know if you guys follow the indie pattern company Muse patterns, but I’ve been quietly working away on a little collaboration!

I’m excited to announce Mānuka, my first pattern released as a guest designer for Muse patterns!

Not going to lie, it was a lot of work and I’m proud 🙂

“Featuring a fun sleeve and a breezy fit, Mānuka is an easy-to-wear top and dress. Designed for lightweight woven fabrics, Mānuka has a loose fit that skims over the hips, and doesn’t require any closures, so no zip woes!”

And you can buy it here OMG!


Let me show you the variations!

It comes in three lengths (crop top, top, and dress), and two sleeve variations. And with Muse patterns, there is a D-cup variation for the large-busted among us. 🙂

You can see the full details on the product page here. 🙂

Getting this pattern released was lots of hard work- way more work than I expected it to be, so I have a new respect for all those hard-working indie designers. It was great working with Kat. She is awesome!

I am planning to keep working on more patterns, so keep your eyes peeled… Now, I hope you guys don’t worry that this will turn into a “buy my product” blog, but I’m planning to blog on a bunch of different stuff in future. 🙂 To be honest though, it would be a dream to be able to continue doing this, and I can’t keep doing if I don’t even promote it!

Seriously though guys, I am very excited and  you can buy it here! And I’d love to hear any and all feedback of course 🙂

  1. Congratulations, Jo! This is so exciting. All your learning and hard work is paying off. I’m not naturally drawn to crop top styles but I particularly love how your pattern looks as a crop top. It looks fun and cute with the flutter sleeve.

    I hope you do manage to continue designing and would happily read more about it if you do 🙂
