Create fantastical, high-fashion gowns with half-scale sewing patterns. Practise and perfect your dressmaking skills in a way that is affordable, convenient and allows for creativity.
If you've ever tried to make an evening gown you know full well it takes an excessive amount of time, effort and cost in materials.
Also, there is a lack of home sewing patterns teaching high-fashion designs to seamstresses serious about the craft. Ones that are available are geared to the beginner or hobby sewer. Designs are simplified and lack speciality. Threadora will offer a modern couture-inspired approach to the home sewing pattern.
By using a half-scale design method it reduces all aspects of the construction process by, well, half! Patterns are easier to work with, less material is used and wasted, and you have more time to spend on your creative avocation. Because it's proportional, you are still able to witness how they fabric drapes as if it were full scale. Any level of sewing skill will benefit from practising using this method.
Your pre-order purchase and support will help with the cost of:
- creating the original and digital patterns
- developing garment samples
- hiring professionals to create stunning final dress photos
- making the instructions, graphics, sketches etc. that are included with each pattern.
- creating a new website with a content delivery system built-in.
- update video software and technology to create better instructional videos.
Our goal is to release 12 patterns in batches of 3 throughout the year. Depending on the response and amount of funding we receive here we can increase that number of designs exponentially.
