Last summer I was sitting on the beach with Leighton’s cousin and we were chatting about my new business Allie Mac. She told me about a girl from Savannah that started sewing for children and totally sells out in minutes. Well, I looked her up and she is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Her business model, design and style had me so intrigued. Her name is Amy and she is the designer behind brownie-goose.
She now sells her patterns here. I bought a few of her patterns even though I knew my Lawson would not wear them (she is a very opinionated dresser….i wonder where she got that trait?) Besides Amy being such a talented designer, I loved her pattern instructions. Y’all you want to just climb up all in the directions and have a cup of coffee and laugh. I don’t know her, but I love her.
So, I fell in love with her Hattie and Lake design. I made Lawson a top. And here she is:
Y’all, I knew I had to get in touch with Amy. I contacted her and asked if she might like to make this into an adult pattern. She said no, but go for it. Little did I know how labor intensive pattern grading is. Ahhhhhhhhhh.
So, I renamed this the Lawson. I did change up some of the pattern. And I have to say it turned out precious. And it was one of my best sellers this past Wednesday! Please check out the back of the Lawson:
If you sew for your own children, you have to check out Amy’s Etsy store and her Facebook page. You will love.love.love. And please tell her that Allie Mac sent you:)
P.S. My show went great this past Wednesday! I am just now starting to recuperate and tonight is the Taylor Swift concert:) Whoooohoooo. I do want to let you know what is in the works. There will be another show here in Columbia. And possibly a show in Decatur, Alabama. My hometown with my bestie:) I will also be updating my Etsy store. So, keep checking in with Allie Mac!
Please, please have another show in Decatur so I can make it this time !!
