BIG NEWS, I have begun the arduous but exciting task of undergoing a name changeover. Formerly known as Momo Kurumi, my new moniker is Momo Kariño, or Momo Karinyo (spelled phonetically for social media).
A more detailed blog will be coming out explaining the details of this development, but in the meantime, please bear with me during the transitional phase. Some links and social media might be temporarily inaccessible until I complete this process. Thanks for your patience and understanding, I look forward to sharing more info very soon!

Awesome news! My pattern, 1322, aka The Magical Girl Sleeveless Leotard, is getting an upgrade! Now it will feature my new logo, name, will be offered in multiple sizes, and even comes with THREE length options for each size! Tall, regular, and short. Starting October 10, I will be posting leotard sizes XS through XL on my website, with the extended size range X1 through X5 to follow soon after. Yay!
Once those are complete, the Sailor Collar are next up for updates + more sizes, and an all NEW set of patterns, the Sleeve Pack, intended for pattern 1322, will be coming as well. Various template and OSFA patterns will be getting upgraded also, some of which won't affect the pattern itself, just logo updates and contact info + website address updates.
If you have bought a pattern from me in the past and notice that it has an upgrade, email me your transaction number, and I will send you an upgrade for free! Contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions about that. ^_^
