I was flatter early this summer when Jill from Made with Moxie asked if I would be interested in including the EYMM Girls Asymmetrical Drape Top with upcoming girls Perfect Pattern Parcel. She was looking for modern and trendy, yet age appropriate clothing patterns that appealed to girls both little and big and this fit the bill. There are also 5 other patterns from great designers included! So what makes this bundle different from others? You can choose how much you pay, but the best part is they support indie designers AND educational charities.
From the PPP site:
Support Indie Designers:
Independent designers create patterns that are innovative, imaginative and in line with current style trends. Their patterns encompass a broad range of sizes and fabulous “out of the envelope” fit because they’re thoroughly tested by real people. Indie designers are approachable, providing support, suggestions, publishing additions to your favorite designs, and hosting interactive sewing events. When we are patrons of indie designers, we are supporting small businesses. We are developing the community around us. We are helping make dreams come true.
We ask you to dedicate part of your purchase to support the mission of Perfect Pattern Parcel. Our mission is to support indie designers, give to charity, and expand awareness to further those two primary goals. PPP funds cover the cost of all hosting and payment processing fees so the designers and charities don’t have to. With any dollar we spend as a PPP expense, our goal is to earn that dollar back and then some. Every dollar that isn’t used to cover expenses is reallocated to charity.
Support Children’s Education:
Donors Choose is an organization that matches up the needs of teachers and their students for specific projects with willing donors. The funds raised from each Pattern Parcel sale will go to help K-12 students in minimizing educational inequality and encourage a community where children have the tools and experiences necessary for an excellent education. From pencils for poetry to microscopes for mitochondria, your support will help address educational inequality and grow generations to come. To date, you’ve helped us raise nearly $11,000!
From Jill, the creator of the Perfect Pattern Parcel.
Today I’m launching a special Pattern Parcel collection for our girls. The indie patterns in their Parcel were chosen for their versatility. They’re modern styles that transcend time. They’re Audrey. They’re Marilyn. They’re Hillary. This Parcel completely covers the size range from 4 years up to a 12 tween. Most of the patterns span even further, as small as newborn and 3 months, up to a 14, 16, 18 girl’s tween sizing. We also chose these patterns because they were all styles we’d be proud to have our girls wear. But they’re also still styles our girls want to wear. And I’m sure you all know what a fine line that is to walk.
We sew for our girls because we want them to have quality garments made with fine materials. Because store bought clothing for women these days is overpriced and poorly made. It’s trash waiting to fall apart and accumulate in our landfills. Not only that, but let’s be honest, today’s store bought clothes are often styles that rush our little girls into an over sexualized womanhood or cram commercial garbage down their throats.
Let’s make our girls clothes that are comfortable. That allow them to be the people they want to be and allow them the movement they need for all their activities. These patterns let our girls climb trees and build forts or get lost in books. They let our girls run and play. They can be athletes, artists, engineers and scientists. And even princesses. 😉 Let’s make our girls a wardrobe worth wearing.
