Create perfect fashion garments, designed to build your business.

Together, we’ll turn your design into clothes that sell.

Pattern Cutting Tools On a Table

A pattern takes you from idea to finished design. It’s your map to a successful production run. 

Just as an architect has a blueprint, so you as a designer have a pattern for fashion garments.

When we work to develop your pattern, we’ll do it hand-in-hand with your creativity.

Our focus is always on facilitating your ideas. You’re the guide, and we’re here to help.

What a pattern does?

A pattern will:

📐 Help you gauge fit accurately and build your reputation as a designer.

📐    Your pattern is a communication tool between you and your sample machinist.

📐 Save money in production. A pattern means you can cut out unnecessary steps.

📐    Help you sell more. We know what hanger appeal means and how to achieve it. Patterns are our tool for doing so.

Our approach to pattern making

We take a collaborative approach throughout. 

We’ll begin the process at whatever stage you’re at now, using mood boards, sketches, images and historical references.

If you have a tech pack already, we’ll use it, but you don’t need it at this early stage. We’ll produce one if needed.

Exquisite craftsmanship is at the heart of our pattern making approach (and, indeed, everything we do). 

Like you, we compete on quality, not price.

We’ll work closely with you to define materials and finishes, supervise sample-making and oversee the production run.

Why you should care about finding ethical clothing manufacturers?

Global fashion supply chains are complex. It’s often hard to find ethical clothing manufacturers who can give you confidence in their standards. And you’re under pressure to minimise your costs and increase your profits.
