Sewing has always been my hobby and my profession. I first trained as a tailor as a young girl after which I worked for some fabulous designers. To fit work around my son I became a teacher of Textiles and Product Design. When my son finished school and moved to the USA I decided to start my own business and do what I love best; draft patterns and teach beginners and advanced sewers how to make their projects look professional. I hope you enjoy my patterns and instruction. Now we followed our boy to the US and I get to sew in the beautiful Californian sunshine!View all patterns by designer (51) »

I would suggest you visit the projects page on my website to access the videos and additional info, pictures from my sewing courses (as soon as they have finished..)
Fabric use is low 1/2 q meter is usually enough. On the pattern you will find a layout plan which shows you just how to cut the pattern out in the most fabric saving way.
So you just have to get yourself some great fabric, watch the video instructions on You Tube and you are ready to go.
None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.
Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit. No loose armholes that are cut too low or sleeves that hang of the shoulder.
The pattern pack includes:
A pattern in PDF format ready to print on regular US letter size paper with assembly
Detailed video instructions on You Tube
No serger is required to make this skirt.
If you want to reproduce the wrap skirt for your own small business you would be on to a winner, it fits beautifully and will sell like hot cakes, obviously I would be delighted to hear all about it!
Please note though that the patterns I design are not to be used for larger scale production.
