Pattern making is a world where you are always in a state of learning. That said, over the last three years I was lucky enough to work with a pattern-making genius who taught me the ropes. Under her guidance, I learned the basics, and over time, along with a lot of trial and error, I learned some tricks along the way. Early on, I had the idea that we could construct three fits to work for the breadth of male body types, but I needed to prove it.
In order to sharpen my pattern making skills and to get more data, I started making custom t-shirts for men. Over time, I developed an understanding of the specific fit attributes, and corresponding pattern making techniques that flattered them the most. With more custom work, we saw consistencies in certain body types and were able to improve upon the original idea. After years of testing and refining, our signature three fits have stolen the show.
