How I Name my Sewing Patterns

Hey mates. I had someone ask me the other day about creating a playlist with the artists that are the inspiration behind my pattern names. And that was all the encouragement I needed to write this blog post. I'll take any excuse to talk about my favourite music. 

For context, I name my sewing patterns after musicians that I love/listened to during the pattern making process (the older patterns are named after suburbs I've lived in/spent a lot of time in).

So if you're into rock, grunge, metal, prog - anything dirty, sometimes heavy, sometimes soft, melodic, industrial and a bit bleak at times- you're in the right spot. 

Here's my Spotify playlist!

Tunes To Sew To

I've picked 5 songs for each artist and man it was tough to narrow it down.

And here's a list of the pattern names and their namesake if you heard some tunes you liked and wanted to go down a musical discovery spiral of your own. 

Akerfeldt Coat - Mikael Åkerfeldt, vocalist/guitarist and primary songwriter for Opeth.

Davis Belt and Davis Crossbody Vest - Jonathan Davis, singer/songwriter for Korn

Duplantier Dress - Joe Duplantier, vocalist/guitarist for Gojira 

Homme Wrap (soon to be released) - Josh Homme, vocalist/guitarist for Queens of the Stone Age

Maynard Dress (taken down for now) - Maynard James Keenan, vocalist for Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer

Page Dress - Jimmy Page, guitarist for Led Zeppelin

Reznor Skirt - Trent Reznor, vocalist/instrumentals/songwriter for Nine Inch Nails

Sanders Button Up - Troy Sanders, bassist/vocals for Mastodon
