DIVERSITY POLICY

We know that everyone is unique and we strive to produce patterns and online classes that are accessible to all.

Moving to an online learning platform makes our classes and workshops available 24/7 so you can learn new skills and techniques at a time that suits you.

Our newest patterns are graded from a UK 6 to a UK 30 and while we know that each design won’t suit everyone, our step-by-step fitting and grading tutorials will help you adapt them to your style and body shape. We have brought out our best-selling patterns in an extended size range but with an extensive back catalogue it is taking time to extend the size range across all of our patterns, so bear with us, we will get there. Do let us know if there is a particular pattern you are keen to see in the full size range and we’ll do our best.

Sewers are a diverse group and we strive to reflect that in our product and pattern imagery and in the fabulous photos of your SOI makes. We’re often asked questions about our models, so if you want to know more you can read their mini bios below.
