MC2-Patterns

MC2-Patterns business – making/selling sewing patterns - somewhere in-between fashion and e-commerce. Started as a Pattern Studio, we are building up a Pattern Platform offering downloadable sewing patterns.

Our blog is about USING ready-made standard-size or custom-fit SEWING  PATTERNS – no bother learning all that technical stuff based on body geometry, computer graphics, programming itself, etc. Nowadays you could hardly save money by sewing your own clothes - it's more of getting the style/fit you want, joy and satisfaction.

We would like our blog to be catching/keeping light-hearted stories for everyone coming across. Even when the subject is technically dry and textbook-based. You will find loads of sewing-related & fashion-based information written in a relaxed (humorous?) manner so you click to bookmark before you know it. ))
