10 August 2020: Sarah is the designer behind Pattern Union and she enjoys supporting Australian Sewing Guild members with her patterns. As Sarah says, inclusivity isn’t just about size. Her patterns can be adapted to different body types.
Pattern Union was created by Sarah Pondevie, owner of Workspace Fashion and Design school, teacher and maker of fashion, who has a passion for pattern making. Her years of working in made-to-measure clothing and teaching has given her the breadth of knowledge to create a range of clothing patterns that appreciates the fact that traditional sizing does not reflect standard measurements.
You should read her latest blog post about the research behind her free scuba face mask.
Sarah talks about her first patterns – the Phoebe collection.
