Gather round…

Yet another project I worked on during my blog downtime seeing the light of day today!

I worked with indie dressmaking pattern company Gather to illustrate the packaging for their patterns and kits. I wanted to evoke the feel of vintage pattern illustrations while still looking totally contemporary and showing the structure of the garments accurately, which was a nice balance to work out! Sandra and Caroline of Gather were awesome to work with – there’s this tricky harmony of strong direction and creative freedom which is hard to get right, but totally the sweet spot when being commissioned. I’m especially happy with the colour palettes for these gals too, lots of pleasing complementary shades.

They patterns look super cool and are beginner friendly so check them out! I’m pretty heart-eyes-emoji about the The Buchanan dressing gown, above.
