I studied Fashion Design while in college and worked in the apparel industry for 8 years before staying home with my 3 kids. My first industry job was as a pattern maker for a small custom shop. It was my absolute dream job. If the company were still in business, I would have been happy there forever. After that, I worked as a product developer for a larger company, managing the development of overseas production for men’s sportswear. I learned so much working at these two very different companies, but ultimately I wanted to stay at home after having kids.
In 2015, I decided I wanted to draft and create sewing patterns. I completed Lauren Dahl’s Pattern Workshop class and translated my traditional drafting skills to create digital PDF sewing patterns. I released my first Girl’s pattern in November of 2015. In 2017, I released my first Women’s pattern and decided to shift my focus to Women’s patterns. I am so thankful to have found this incredible online sewing community; it is exactly where I want to be. My goal is to continue to offer patterns with simple but detailed instructions. I would like to offer designs that are fashionable and unique while creating a welcoming community around my business.
