Our Story

For over 20 years, our founder, Julia Van Der Sommen has been creating commercial clothes patterns, developing samples and manufacturing fashion lines. Julia, a pattern maker herself, is a leader in ethical clothing within Australia and accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia across her service offerings and her own fashion labels; Winterluxe, Sha-de and Wkend.

Sample Room is Julia’s pattern and sample development house that has supported 100’s of new fashion labels to launch their custom clothing range over the past 10 years. With a passion to save new and established fashion designers money and time, Pattern Room was hatched, a unique online commercial ready pattern directory like nothing ever seen before.

Julia saw a need for downloadable sewing patterns for people who are not pattern makers, but need patterns to launch their new fashion line. Over the past 5 years Pattern Room has been coming to life as our pattern makers have been busily working away on creating thousands of clothing patterns ready for manufacturing. We understand first hand there is a shortage of pattern makers in Melbourne, and world-wide, which contributes to the normally long lead times and expense of creating a clothing pattern from scratch.

It has become evident through conversations with both new and experienced designers, that ready to use commercially ready patterns are considered a game changer, giving that advantage of both time and cost saving.

Save over 50% off the cost of creating your own patterns, by choosing our professionally developed downloadable sewing patterns with thousands to select from.

Julia has a strong background in design, pattern making, sample making, and production management. And is passionate about helping new or established fashion labels to reach their goals. Being ethically accredited in Australia is something that is really important to Pattern Room as is a positive and safe workplace. The Pattern Room team of pattern makers is here to support your fashion label dreams.

We are located in Melbourne, Australia and base all of the patterns off Australian standard sizing. Using Western sizing standards means our patterns fit general sizing of Australia, America, UK and more.
