Sewing Pattern – Re-Cycling

Share on facebook
Share on twitter

Sew n Design is recycling sewing patterns, fabrics, haberdashery and excess stock left over from production processes.

* To help the environment with less waste.
* Stop extra printing of paper, when that has already been done
* Help some start ups with cheaper products.
* Clear up some room – or de-stash excess products

Some of the patterns may have been made for some fashion shows I participated in.

Some patterns are made for costuming purposes, or samples made.
Some patterns may have not suited to the fabric used, therefore modified for another fabric.

Some client’s may have not paid for the work requested and completed, or clients do not wish to keep the patterns for future projects, only wanting their one off – these particular patterns would not be sold for a few years after the clients occasion etc

Whether you purchase patterns from a pattern maker or purchase a shop bought pattern, these should ALL be sampled in a fabric similar to what you want your final product to fit and look like.

Sampling (‘Toile’) is considered one of the most important steps in producing any apparel.
