Over the past couple years, I (Alex) have occasionally mentioned that I’ve been working on a MASSIVE project, and I’m excited to finally tell you about it!
This bigger, better, more magical endeavor is exclusively focused on training and producing resources for aspiring sewing wizards and DIY costumers.
What does this mean for you?
Well, several things.
First, (some) sewing patterns previously sold under the name “Bad Wolf Costumes” will now be available as “Tailors Gone Wild” patterns.
DIGITAL PATTERN DOWNLOADS
Digital pattern downloads have been one of our top requests for years now, especially from international customers … and I’m delighted to say that we’re now offering digital pattern downloads on our new Tailors Gone Wild web site!
We still offer physical patterns, too, so simply select your desired format from the dropdown menu – physical copy, digital download, or both.
Our new TGW web site also features an integrated forum where you can discuss sewing patterns and your experiences with them, as well as sewing and costuming in general!
There’s even a private area of the forum specifically for TGW customers to ask for advice, and to share your own tips and tricks.
Although the majority of the forum is available for public viewing, for full access and interaction you’ll need to create a free account.
You’ll also have the option of creating a new account during the checkout process, and all you need to do is log in for 24/7 access to all your purchased pattern downloads.
We will soon be temporarily discontinuing most of our pre-2017 sewing patterns, pending updates.
These include the various VOY, DS9/NEM, and ENT-era sewing patterns previously released under the “Bad Wolf Costumes” label.
However, the two pieces of GOOD news are:
1 – There will be numerous new TNG-era pattern releases in the meantime, for both men and women.
2 – The updated sewing patterns will be well worth the wait!
After this TNG-era uniform project, we will be updating the aforementioned patterns to be even more authentic to the original uniforms, as well as including additional sizing options, improved grading, etc. … and, of course, there will be corresponding women’s patterns!
If you’re still wanting these older patterns, don’t panic! We’re not discontinuing them JUST yet. They will still be available in our Etsy shop for a few months, before they disappear for a while.
We definitely recommend ordering sooner rather than later, though! There’s currently no ETA on the updated patterns, although it will probably be next year.
As exciting as all this, the best is actually yet to come!
For now, all I’ll say is … you are going to LOVE it. :)
