Custom Patterns for Those Who Sew

Butterick not working out style or fit-wise? We can draft custom patterns or pattern pieces for you.

  • Moulage Set (basic upper body sloper for zero-ease, blouse/bodice and jacket) $200
  • Basic Sleeve to fit Moulage armhole $50
  • Pant Sloper (with basic pockets and waistband) $250

If you need a particular pattern drafted (i.e. a pattern for a dress you have a photograph of, a jacket with a certain lapel-shape), we can handle that! Prices start at $50 and increase with garment complexity, number of pattern pieces, and our level of involvement post-drafting (We can make up and fit the muslin for you, if you like.).

Likewise, if you'd like an existing garment copied (without us taking it apart), we're up to the task!

Please call us at 208-685-9410 or send an e-mail to set an appointment to talk about your custom clothing, pattern drafting, prototyping, or other sewing or design project.

Feel free to  contact us with inquiries.

We have experienced Dressmakers, Pattern Drafters, Designers, and Sewists on the sewBoise team!
