I provide patternmaking services for everything from established brands to individual clients looking for custom clothing. With experience in tailored woven garments, suiting, and cut and sew knits, I can draft production-ready patterns for a broad range of women's garments based off of designer sketches, specs and fittings.

  • Custom patterns tailored to individuals
  • Altering existing patterns
  • Leading fit sessions
