About Sew This Pattern

Sew This Pattern is about getting creative and making exciting clothes that will show off your unique style and personality.  Not only will you get excited about sewing your own clothes but also actually wearing your own DIY fashion!

I’m Annie! A sewer, designer, mum & partner. I live in Melbourne, Australia with my partner Tony (my photographer and creative director) and two tweenage boys Ollie & Noah. We also have a very lazy Aussie bulldog named Roxy and an elusive kitty named Oki.

I  have been sewing and designing since I was a teenager. Being one of seven children my mum thought it would be a great idea to teach me how to sew at a very early age and I’m so happy she did. I developed a love for fashion immediately and have never looked back working most of my life in the Fashion Industry.

In my twenties I moved to Canada for a few years where I studied Fashion Arts in Vancouver and  was really inspired by the street style and unconventional designers there. More recently I have developed a penchant for vintage styles.  You can get more of an idea of the styles that inspire me by taking a peek at my sewing creations on my  blog Nine Stitches.

I have created Sew this Pattern to bring the hottest trends and fashion  to the sewing world by providing downloadable sewing patterns that are exciting and directional. I want to provide patterns that are fashionable but simple and easily achievable for the beginner and beyond sewer. My patterns are designed for the beginner to advanced sewer with comprehensive instructions, photographs and illustrations provided.

More recently, I opened up a little sewing studio in Elsternwick, Victoria where I teach sewing lessons to kids and adults.
