top 10 PATTERN making questions and answers (FAQ)s

Can you construct patterns from samples?

Yes, we can. Selecting a pre-existing sample that has the fit, silhouette or style that you like to build your design is a great way to start the development process. Please keep in mind however, that the new design that you are trying to build must be similar in weight, type of fabric, and seam placement. Cutting your pattern in a fabric that is not similar to your sample’s fabric type will not work on your newly created pattern. Example: your sample is a Knit fabric men’s shirt and your sample yardage fabric to cut your new pattern is a woven fabric.  

To whom and where do I ship my designs?

Please send all your designs/samples to our shipping address below.
