One of our readers let me know about an Etsy Pattern Shop she felt I should share with all of you and I could not agree more! If you don't know Bunny Bear Patterns from Etsy you may know them as Bunnybear.com. When one of our readers approached me about sharing these patterns on my site I reached out to Nann who is the pattern designer and she kindly shared a bit about her shop and design background with me to share with you!
KMOT: What is your inspiration for each pattern?
"I scrupulously study actual garments in person at museums, online in historical collections, or actual rare patterns that are similar to a design I want to produce. It is extremely important to get the cut and structure of a piece as close to the original era as possible. I do this for anything I design, historical or contemporary. Then I move on to fabric choices, closures etc. The inspiration is usually a generalized iconic look of the era. Sometimes I sketch my interpretation of it and sometimes I gather a group of images and make a mood board for it."
