Development services for cut and sew apparel and small accessories designers include:

  • Concept evaluation and line planning
  • Coaching & consulting
  • Pattern making (paper and CAD)
  • Sample sewing / prototyping
  • Production planning

I coach clients through the process of preparing to work with pattern makers, sample sewers, and production facilities. For starters, read the Guide to Working With Pattern and Sample Makers.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, and I will provide a questionnaire to determine if your project is a good fit for my skill set and schedule availability. My portfolio will give you an idea of past projects.


Experience includes menswear, womenswear, and some limited youth apparel, with a predominate focus on women’s casual and athletic stretch apparel. I have experience sewing a wide variety of apparel weight materials, including wovens, knits, and lightweight leather and denim. I do NOT take on work with bridal / formalwear, lingerie, luggage, handbags, or heavy weight materials.
