About us

Welcome to Just Patterns, a line of sewing patterns inspired by high-end Ready-to-wear and produced in New York City.

Our mission is to provide beautifully drafted patterns for the experienced dressmaker, helping you create a handmade wardrobe full of clothes you cherish forever.

Just Patterns is project launched by 2 real-life friends, E. (The Pattern Line) and D. (Sewing Tidbits). We met in 2012 in a draping class at FIT. Since then, we haven’t stopped talking about fashion, sewing, fabric and patterns. Because we couldn’t afford our dream wardrobe, we decided to make it ourselves!

Our Patterns

Our products are meant for the experienced dressmaker or those who like to figure things on their own. We provide a cutter’s must and a suggested order of operations but no step-by-step instructions because we want to focus on developing many more patterns. Read more about what information we include in this blogpost.

For our anyone who may need more help, we gather some of the amazing information provided by other members of the sewing community in our Resource Pages, where each pattern has its dedicated page. If you need help or have comments, you can get in touch with us.

Where to buy

You can find our patterns in our Etsy Store: Just Patterns Atelier.

Sizes and PDF

All the patterns  available from size 34 to 46 (see our size chart below), in 2 home-printing options (A4 and Letter) and 2 copy shop options (A0 and US/36″ wide). They are layered PDF files, so you can print only the sizes you need. We do our best to limit the quantity of paper required to print our patterns, which means that if a piece is mirrored you only print half of it or that we may give you dimensions for simple pieces such as rectangles.

If you need help to print your layered PDF files, this blogpost should help you.
