I have over 20 years of patternmaking and grading experience. I currently use Gerber PDS to create and/or digitize patterns. My experience ranges from theatrical costume, street wear, body armor, and athletic uniforms. I have worked with various garment manufacturers, creating patterns, sewing instructions, technical data sheets and BOM's. In addition to patterns and designing I am an experienced seamstress. I have created many of the first prototypes for previous customers. Patterns are provided in Gerber ZIP files for cut and sew manufacturers, paper for small sewing shops, or DXF conversions for sublimation printers.
