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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about that. ^_^
