Pattern Cutting – where good design becomes, and manufacturing begins…..

The frustration of sealing a garment for manufacture has increased in recent years as fashion designers have become more distanced from the pattern-cutters and garment-makers who actually construct their styles. Pattern amendments are filtered through other personnel and the actual pattern cutter is unable to discuss uncertainties directly with the designers. In response, pattern counsel offers a series of services specifically aimed to help the pattern-room, solving problems, training personnel and advising on all aspects of the pattern production.

  • Pattern Cutting Coaching for Technique and Fit
  • Block Making
  • Specification Writing
  • Grading
  • CAD & Card
  • Garment technology
  • Based in London but willing to travel

Maggie has over 30 years experience as a pattern cutter and grader working with designers from couture to high street, and is a specialist in all aspects of pattern making.
