I’ve got a question that I would love your feedback on.
Up to the present most patterns I have offered have been in “sets”. Outfits you can purchase that have multiple pieces- shorts, pants, blouse- or blouse, skirt, shorts, etc.
In the back of my mind for some time I’ve considered breaking up future patterns into separates to be purchased individually. This could be blouses, skirts, jackets, shorts, pants, whatever the future may hold.
The pro is that if you were between sizes you could choose a blouse to fit, and a separate bottom to fit.
The con is that if you wanted all pieces it would be more expensive than buying the outfit pack. My patterns and instructions are done digitally now to conserve paper the best I can- there will be more “empty space” so to speak, on the pattern sheets and instructions which raises my supply cost. Since it takes me a lot of time to do the layouts after I have made the patterns digitally in each size, it would only be available in one OR the other… for example, even though a blouse and skirt were meant to go together they would have to be purchased separately if you wanted the whole look.
I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on this and will take all into consideration in what I decide to do in the future releases.
