CAD Pattern maker offering grading, instructions, graphic design, technical editing for Independent pattern production
I’m a Pattern maker who does grading, PDF graphic design layouts, illustrated technical instructions, and who can help bring your home sewing pattern ideas and sewing instructions to life.
I have 30 years sewing experience, with 15 years industry pattern making and grading experience. I’m familiar with a wide range of categories (Women’s, Men’s, Women’s and Men’s plus sizes, Youth, Girls, Toddlers and Babies) and garment types (everything from lingerie to technical outerwear and anything in between). I am experienced with knit, woven and laminate fabrics. I also have experience with home décor items and soft goods.
I’m able to work from a sample garment, rough pattern, or just a sketch and specs. I can grade sample sizes out to multiple alpha or numeric sizes. I can produce full color or black and white patterns for copy shop printing, at-home PDF printing or A0 Projector patterns. I can write, transcribe, or proof instructions, including the creation of technical flats and detailed construction sketches. For a portfolio of work examples, visit aliceclemans.com.
