Pattern making, Grading, Testing and Prototype sewing
I am an apparel and soft goods Pattern maker with 15 years of experience who specializes in CAD. I can develop patterns from specs, or digitize existing patterns and grade them out to your size range. I am comfortable working in knit and woven and have experience with both. I can develop PDF patterns of individual sizes or nested sizes, both appropriate for large format printing. I can develop and apply prints to fabric and pattern pieces. I also am able to sew prototypes for fitting, size runs to check grading, and test current patterns for ease of construction and evaluate instructions for clarity. I am at ease working in an independent pattern format or supplying production ready patterns to a factory.
