Patternmaking & Grading

I work with indie slow fashion brands to draft, digitize, and grade sewing patterns across a wide size range.

About my approach:

I specialize in size chart development and drafting and grading across a wide size range.

I have developed my own nontraditional grading method that results in a smooth transition between what we would consider “straight-sizes” and “plus-sizes” so that there is no awkward break or jump in the middle of the size chart. I am constantly thinking about bodies and proportions, and am open and willing to explore designing for all kinds of variations.

My focus is on quality over quantity.

I prefer to focus on one style at a time, and refuse to work on a rushed fast-fashion timeline. I typically require a minimum of 2-4 weeks of lead time for most patternmaking projects.
