What others have made
Just Patterns is a line of digital sewing patterns inspired by luxury Ready-to-wear and produced in Paris. Through high-end detail-oriented sewing patterns, my goal is to help you create beautiful clothes you will love forever.
My name is Delphine, I am French and I started sewing 20 years ago. As a teen, I was obsessed with the idea of recreating garments that I couldn't afford. I read many books, old and new. I took pattern making and draping classes at prestigious fashion schools in New York and Paris. I went to see fashion exhibitions, and I looked inside all the luxury clothes I could get my hands on. But most importantly, I took advantage of the immense knowledge being shared by the online sewing community.
I hope that you will join me in sewing our dream wardrobes, one unique garment at a time!
