Independent Sewing Patterns Sew-a-thon

I recently found an interesting topic on SewingPatternsReview board: Latest Independent Pattern Releases (for the record, independent patterns are the ones not produced by the 4 big commercial pattern companies in North America).
The thread was full of information about designers, websites, etc.
Of course, I had to check out all of them!
And the following patterns ended up on my shopping list:

Patterns For Pirates

-Women's Henley : so many options, what a great value of a pattern!
-Yo-Ho Henley
-Women's Raglan with add on
- Peg Legs
-Grandpa Cardi

Stitch Upon A Time 
Scrundlewear and Goldilegs - great pair of stretch jeans/pants with a comfort band
 I already own:
Kids Boxerwear
(see a pattern)

1 Puddle Lane - this was an entirely new company to me!
Miss Ruby Tuesday Dress - what a versatile pattern with a great number of options for neck, sleeve, length etc.

Peek-a-Boo Patterns
Gloria Dress with skirt options

Here are some of the results so far:

Patterns For Pirates Women's Henley:
Great Pattern, but the cotton lycra knit (medium weight ) I used was a little too heavy.
Will definitely use this pattern again.

Stitch Upon A Time Scrundlewear's pink...and purple and features Hello Kitty - it's a win/win/win
Peek-a-Boo Patterns Gloria Dress

(modeled by a very reluctant preschooler in a foul mood)
I used the circle skirt add on an added a nylon chiffon ruffle.
Rolled hem and sleeves and fold over elastic at the neck.

Will be making many more of these!
