Hi, I’m Annie!
I have been sewing and designing since I was a teenager. Being one of seven children, my mum thought it would be great 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. After moving back to Australia, I decided to settle in Melbourne and worked in the fashion industry as a Product Developer in Childrens and Ladieswear.
I was a stay at home mum for a few years when my boys were little so I decided this would be a good time to put my experience to work and created my own PDF sewing pattern business and sewing school, Sew This Pattern.
