    agree with many of the suggestions above; personally i would love to see some relatively easy dresses – though you already cover this well! it’s probably wishful thinking but any innovation or ways to simplify the process of printing patterns – such as being able to order them by mail perhaps? would be very much appreciated!

    I’d like to see some sweater vests for my man :D Less specifically, anything that can be described as quirky-cool! That vinyl purse project fits this description well. And these thread colors could def do some serious damage- way cool.

    i’d love to see a funky fitted jacket pattern, because i’d like to make one but haven’t found any patterns i like yet! i’d also love to see a classic shirt dress, with a few sleeve variations – something that is a versatile pattern that can be dressed up and professional, or dressed down and casual.
