Commercial Pattern Reviews

Threads for Heads
Threads for Heads - This comb-bound book of about 50 pages is the only "commercial pattern" I know of that is oriented specifically to the hippie market. It gives instructions for basic items like apron shirts, pants and shorts, skirts, etc., including guidance on constructing your own patterns from your measurements. I loved the personal touch of the quotes and bits of poetry throughout... it reminded me of the Alicia Bay Laurel books or Enchanted Broccoli Forest.

Note - This is a link to another site - Lauren Clay has published this book various times in small runs, but I am not privy to the schedule if she is currently out of stock. Her email is patchymama @
