Clothesline Patterns

An older neighbour once told me about how she would shop in the morning for a pattern and fabric, sew a new dress in the afternoon and wear it out that night. I love that idea! That's the spirit of Clothesline Patterns, simple clothes-making to be sewn in a single day.

Back in 2008, when I couldn't find the simple, speedy clothing patterns I was looking for, I decided to make them myself. Private patternmaking classes led to full time study in clothing design and technology at MSIT, a technical college in Brisbane, Australia.

I've worked in a number of creative industries - visual merchandising, graphic design, event styling - but now live amongst the sugar cane fields just outside Mackay in rural Queensland, happily making things for my website www.clotheslinepatterns.com.

Our motto at Clothesline : Be you. Everyone else is taken.
