These professional, industry quality sewing patterns have been designed with you, the makers and the sewists, in mind - allowing you to have inside knowledge of industry secrets for a polished finish to your garments. With these dressmaking patterns, you will be able to create garments with spirit and integrity that you will want to wear daily and will love forever. Clothes that are beyond fashion, grown up clothes for the young of heart and creative of mind. Not the stuff of teenagers but of the woman who knows what she likes and wants to wear it, to make it, love it and cherish it. And make it again and again in a different cloth. These are the clothes of the women who will help save the art of construction, the art of making, who will enjoy the journey savouring every stitch. And these are the patterns for the women who will tear through the instructions in an excited rampage because it’s only two hours till tea time and by jingo, she will have a new top to wear while she burns the fish fingers!
Each pattern has been tested (and tested, and tested several more times!) so all should be well...but we're only human. If you have a problem contact me, I'm happy to help!
Here are some things just listed by other crafters and sellers on Folksy.
After a lifetime working as a professional ladieswear pattern cutter, creating clothes for many a high street store, Mrs M became slightly disillusioned with the high turn over of said fashions and the endless need to buy new. What was being lost, she felt, was the art of fitting and construction, and of clothes that made your heart sing, not just for a second, but every time you saw them. So she rebelled, quietly because she’s like that, but rebelled none the less and quit the rat race, deciding instead to make clothes that she loved to wear, that reflected her life rather than those generic fashions of the day. So she has dedicated herself to working at Granny’s table, to cracking open the spot and cross* and sharing her knowledge with you in the form of Maven Patterns.
