About

Montoya Mayo Patterns is a new line of independent sewing patterns that feature classic silhouettes for the modern seamstress. With my new line, I will be creating designs that can be worn throughout the different seasons and make statements for years to come. Through my pattern line, I will be able to fuse my passion for design and teaching. You may be familiar with my step by step sewing tutorials that I publish on YouTube. Currently I teach others how to draft their own patterns, hack patterns and sew commercial patterns. Now it's time for me to showcase my designs. I will be debuting my line with a wrap coat design available in both PDF and print, a step by step video tutorial will also be included.

Pattern Features

My first design is a versatile wrap coat. The pattern features three different views that can be mixed and matched. There are two bodice options and three skirt options; six different variations in all. The pattern includes belt loops, a sash and my personal favorite feature, POCKETS! This pattern knows no limits. While it is a coat, this design can also be worn alone as a dress. Use this wrap coat pattern year around, you have the option to sew this design with sleeves or create a sleeveless version. 

My Inspiration 

Throughout my sewing career I've been hacking commercial patterns to bring my designs to life. I've had a vision for this particular wrap coat for about a year and after countless searches for a pattern to hack, I decided that I needed to create my own pattern. With the creation of my own patterns, I now have the ability to ensure that my audience has all of the course materials needed to successfully complete the tutorials I create. Whether a beginner or intermediate, I like to differentiate my instruction so that all viewers create a successful garment. In my tutorial for the Tory Wrap Coat pattern I include time markers, which enables viewers to pick up where they left off, fast forward through what they already know, or rewind to a particular step. Similar to my tutorials, my pattern includes everything a sewer needs to create a successful garment: notches and dots to line up pieces, finished garment measurements, layout examples and much more. My goal is to help you feel confident from beginning to end.  

Current Stage

The Tory Wrap Coat has been professionally drafted and graded for sizes XS-XXL.  To ensure quality, the pattern has been tested by six seamstresses here in the U.S. The instructions were also proofed and tested by these seamstresses.  A tutorial for the coat is on my YouTube channel so you'll be able to follow along with me step by step. With a successfully funded project I will be able to acquire a printed pattern inventory. The printed pattern will include an instruction booklet and a durable card stock envelope. 

Bonus: Imani Necklace Pledge Options 

I love to make bold statements through the pieces I wear and I want to help you do the same. In addition to the printed pattern, I'm offering a limited amount of Imani necklaces. Below you'll find the pictures for the necklaces that I have available. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for this project will be the potential for delays with the printing. Before final printing all aspects of the printed pattern need to be proofed in both the physical and virtual form. Proofs and final pattern materials will need to be shipped across state lines, which adds days to the process. I will be working diligently with the companies I have partnered with to ensure the printed patterns are mailed out to you all in a timely fashion.
