NZ Pattern Companies

Dressmaking designers of Aotearoa!

We are very lucky to be sewing in the age of the PDF pattern. When it comes to choosing our dressmaking patterns, we aren’t restricted to the styles and designs (and restricted sizing) of the big 4 patterns.

PDF pattern making has really fuelled the independent pattern making industry and we are lucky to have some great pattern makers here in NZ. So keep your sewing local and check out these fab pattern making companies who call NZ their home!
