ABOUT US

We believe that a combination of great design, high technical ability and creativity is what makes the difference between a good pattern and an outstanding one. Our patterns are brand-led, commercially aware and bespoke, and crafted on industry standard Gerber Technology.

Our aim at Lucy-Jane is to make your design into a perfect pattern. But what is a perfect pattern? Technically it will fit well on the model, be cut to take into account the properties of the fabric, and for production be easy to sew and minimise waste.  In the end it needs to look and feel great in the opinion of all involved - designer, wholesaler, retailer and customer in an industry of constant change. But note that fashion is inherently subjective and changeable and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.   

To interpret the design and meet these expectations we need to understand both you and your customers - the more information we have the better we can use our experience to produce a perfect pattern.

 

We can work from the skimpiest of briefs and give you great patterns but the better you can describe what you want to achieve the more likely we are to produce what is in your minds eye.  If the size or shape of your customers is unusual it's not a problem, but we need to know.  If your fabrics are unusual in pattern or properties we need samples.   If you're creating a stunning individual design or aiming for a mass market we need to understand.  If you're looking at a new market or distribution you can rely on us to produce designs that work and that sell - our patterns are worn by thousands of people every day.  Our quality assurance system ensures that your brief and instructions are followed and checked at every stage.  Our studio with industrial coverstitch, overlocking and sewing machines can give you full short run production or samples for photoshoot and standards for your factory to work to.  These systems combined with our skills and experience create great patterns, first time, with minimal alterations.
