I let you spend time on your core business again


Are technical matters consuming all your time? Frustrated by delays and miscommunication?

Would you prefer to leave the technical work to a professional who can follow your creative brain and think along with you?

Then you should be with me. Danielle Steman, nice to meet you.

I am your digital right hand and I help you with digital solutions for important parts of your creative process and your business operations.

This is what I can do for you:

Digital pattern development

The complete package to have your designed produced. I translate your sketches into production-ready patterns, including extensive documentation.

Digital 3d sampling

The new way to create prototypes. With my digital 3d sampling service you can show your collection to potential buyers in no time and without the hassle.

Digital fitting

The alternative method for tailor-made clothing. Switch to digital measuring and fitting and within a few days you have a ready-made custom pattern at your disposal.

Digitizing paper patterns

The safe and compact way to store your pattern archive. Prevent your archive from going up in smoke and make room in your studio by converting paper into bytes.

Why would you work with me?

There are plenty of others out there who can also make patterns. Just google on “pattern maker”, “pattern development” or “make clothing samples” and you have plenty of choice.

But why would you choose me anyway?

As a designer with a technical tic (or techie with a fashion tic, that is also possible) I understand exactly what you encounter.

I’ve been making clothes for almost 40 years, so by now I know what can and cannot be done.

I know a lot about fitting (I can write a book about it if there were more than 24 hours in a day).

Due to my technical background I have an excellent 3D insight and I am super handy with CAD programs.

Sustainability is extremely important to me. This is the reason to invest heavily in 3D software and thus make the clothing industry a little bit more sustainable and less destructive. Because it is quite clear by now that the current model doesn’t work anymore.

How did I get here?

When it comes to “important” things I have always been a bit nonconforming; I choose a practical education (technical mind you) instead of going to university, I have never been married and I have no children.

And then in 2016 I quit my well-paid job to “do something in fashion”. Something to do with whining on the couch, depression and choosing for yourself (I can recommend you by the way, but preferably without depression :-))

But then what? It was obvious to work as a tailor, after all I also have a tailors diploma.

And so it happened …

… And then you find out that sitting behind a sewing machine for 40 hours a week for work is something different than making a nice dress in your spare time.

And the nerd in me missed the technical work too. Digital pattern drawing (I soon abandoned the manual work) is much more fun than sewing.

Meanwhile, the pattern drawing has escalated a bit out of control. Photo module here, 3d module there. I can do something with that…

It had to be pointed out to me, but that “something” turned out to fit together very nicely and even more was possible than expected. As a result, I now only offer digital pattern related services.

My creative side

In order not to get completely square eyes from sitting behind the computer too much, I also lay a creative egg now and then.

This egg is my own line Dancing with Daffodils. Exclusive designs for conscious, positive people who take responsibility and want to be part of change, but only by looking their best.

Exclusively made to measure from sustainable materials. Here you can immediately see an example of how I use my services to only offer tailor-made clothing.
