Our story

Hello. We're The Avid Seamstress, a London-based sewing pattern company dedicated to helping modern makers enjoy sewing and making themselves look great.

The Avid Seamstress produces versatile & multi-functional sewing patterns to bring together a community of makers that empower and inspire each other through sewing.

Aimed at beginner to intermediate dressmakers, we give users the freedom to create easy casual outfits or more formal garments just by changing their fabric choice. We also support customers on their sewing journey by offering blog tutorials and online help.

The Avid Seamstress sewing patterns are printed on high-quality pattern paper and include a step-by-step instruction booklet. What's more, we include helpful cards showing users how to take their own measurements, an easy explanation of common sewing terms as well as a useful sewing checklist. All of this is encased in a beautiful, big re-closable envelope.

Our sewing patterns are available worldwide in both PDF and printed format.


Individuality. We give you the structure to base your clothing design on and you do the rest. Our patterns are versatile, multi-functional and allow you to express your own unique style with every design decision you make along the way.

Quality. From conception to production, each pattern is tested and retested to ensure a flattering fit on any body type. We invest the time to create the perfect pattern for you to make your own.
