Announcement    Elizabeth Sweetwater designs and makes original “vintage-inspired” women's pdf sewing patterns with a nod to the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.


All my designs are made using the latest software. They have been lovingly fine-tuned and graded across a full range of sizes, EU34-50.

All Patterns include a body size chart, a piece checklist, and a colouring-in sheet to print out and try out colour combinations. They are supplied as two pdfs, one to print out at home on A4 paper, the other to take to a print shop to print out at A1. Each pdf has bookmarked sections so you can easily jump from size to size.

I continually add retro designs so do please keep stopping by.

On Etsy since 2006

Vintage inspired jersey garment sewing made easy with our pdf patterns and free tutorials. So you can say: "I made this".

My name is Liesbeth Soeterbroek but translated in English it is Elizabeth Sweetwater.

I live in The Hague, The Nederlands and married to Paul, ( also a maker and designer) and we have 2 children, Luke and Kate.

Love reading, vegetarian cooking and making city trips looking for anything vintage.

My biggest hobby is designing and making clothes. I adore clothing styles from the past and they are definitely a great source of inspiration. I feel so fortunate that I was able to turn this passion for handmade into my job!

I have been active on Etsy for over ten years, previously making and designing upcycled clothing for kids under the shop name Dressme. You can still purchase Dressme patterns in my shop.
