I am trying to work on updating the look of my pattern covers. Obviously there is a lot involved including photography, editing, design, etc. I am certainly not an expert in any of these areas but I feel like I do a good-enough job to get by for now.
Anyways, what I am battling with is whether to use images of just the garments or garments on a model. After doing some research, it appears that different designers go different ways and there is not really a right or wrong.
Ideally, I want my covers to appeal to customers searching for patterns on etsy and also in their local sewing shop. I would love to get an opinion.What do you think? Do you have a preference? If you saw the two, which is more appealing?
(Yes, this is a new pattern and will be in the shop in the next couple weeks!)
In addition, do you think that all the patterns need to have the same appearance or could some have a model and some have just the garment? I would love to hear all the feedback you can give me!
