PDF sewing patterns for modern women's wear - comfortable and edgy!

I started sewing when I was 15. I was in a play at school and we needed to make our own costumes. My grandmother helped me choose the pattern and put it together. When I saw the process and the possibilities, I couldn't wait to start. Before I even had a sewing machine, I hand sewed myself a top out of corduroy, using cotton yarn. I had no idea what i was doing of course - I had never even heard of bust darts - but I wore the top out dancing and I even got some compliments on it!

I got my first sewing machine for my 16th birthday and I haven't stopped sewing since. A few years ago I was looking for a new challenge in my life. I decided I wanted to make and sell sewing patterns. I took a year of pattern making classes and created my first pattern. The new and improved Jade skirt is now in my shop, along with the Jasper Sweater/Dress.

    Hi! I am the pattern designer at Paprika Patterns. I create the design on paper, sew the samples, digitise and grade it, and I write and illustrate the instructions.
