Progress and Packaging

Things are still ticking along nicely at gather HQ. Our pattern is SO nearly there, but we've decided to make a few last minute design changes which has slowed us down a little. We've tweaked a sleeve, lowered a neckline - all little details that you don't realise make a massive difference until you have a few finished dresses in front of you! 

Our slow-down has given us chance to start thinking about our packaging though. Here's some of what we've been looking at for inspiration.

What do you think? Have you got any examples of amazing packaging that you've seen - sewing related or not? We'd love to see!


  1. They all look great but you might want to keep shipping (local and international) in mind while making that decision. Yes, awesome packaging rocks, especially for style blog reviews but at the end of the day most/ all of that is either going in the bin/ taking up more space in my pattern drawers so I'll happily swap it for a plain brown paper envelope with (front and back line diagrams) and a notes section on it somewhere.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. We've certainly got shipping costs in mind, trying to make things affordable AND stylish at the same time... It's a tricky business!
