Hi. I’m Mari-Leen, the founder of Pattern Sewciety. Welcome!
At Pattern Sewciety we strive to bridge the gap between the fashion industry and the fashion conscious home sewer by creating on trend dress patterns and bringing you news flashes from the world of fashion and sewing. We will show you how to achieve the latest looks by featuring relevant patterns, give you trend reports to inspire you and keep you updated with the latest Pattern Sewciety news. We hope to not only inspire home sewers, but anyone who loves fashion.
Ok, a bit about me….
I am obsessed with beautiful patterns, colors, sewing, designing and decorating. I enjoy doing online courses in fashion and patternmaking, including a certificate in Womenswear Design through London College of Fashion, and Fashion Manufacturing through Central Saint Martins.
My designs are also inspired by beautiful fabrics that I also love designing.
I was born and raised in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa, but I now live in the south of Namibia with my three children – Mila, Joshua and Carla.
I love coffee, cooking, reading, and a good movie. I love learning new things, and love the way the internet has opened so many doors for people to empower themselves and make their dreams come true. Things I would definitely not be able to live without is my iPhone and Macbook:)
