This is a blog about patternmaking and fabric manipulation, the more creative and fun side of drafting patterns. It’s closely linked to my Instagram page @shapesoffabric, where I have been posting pictures of my experiments in patternmaking for a while now.


I often call myself a pattern-geek. I love shattering one pattern piece into a million smaller pieces and I’m particularly fond of sculptural designs. You’ll probably see lots of pleats, too.


In my blog I will be sharing some tutorials and  ideas related to the theme, encouraging you to modify patterns and add some cool details to your designs. I hope this will be useful and inspire fashion students, designers and home sewists alike.
