fed up with the stupid technical work?
Hand over the boring part to an expert and focus on what you do best, designing beautiful clothes
Just deliver all the input and I translate your sketches into production-ready patterns. If you want, I can also create the indispensable technical documentation.
Digital prototyping is standard part of the process, so you know what your design will look like in real life before you send you production order to the factory.
Go all the way and upgrade the digital prototype to a digital sample and get some fancy product pics.
pattern development includes by default:
Well begun is half done: we start with a thorough analysis of your design. For example, we look at materials, sizes & proportions and technical (im)possibilities.
It does not matter how you deliver your designs, as a rough sketch, a detailed technical drawing or a draped model.
After the analysis I get to work on the development of the pattern. For this I use accurate size charts and tested basic blocks.
If the digital prototype has been approved, the pattern pieces are finalized and graded in the desired size range.
After the real life sample is reviewed there will be one round of pattern adjustments if necessary.
Digital prototyping is part of the process by default.
After the first setup of the pattern we sit together and review your design in 3d and make changes if necessary.
A digital prototype is meant to give an impression of the look and feel of your garment. It is less detailed than a digital sample.
You get a pdf of the pattern in the complete size range on A0+ size.
optionally you can add these elements:
Good technical documentation is essential to keep production running smoothly.
A pattern alone is not enough to make a garment. You also need to provide info about materials, stitching, construction, colors, etc. You don’t want your manufacturer to guess what you want.
A digital sample is much more detailed than a digital prototype.
To make this digital sample true to life, I digitalize the actual fabrics you will use. Decorative stitching, buttons and zippers are applied and the avatar is dressed including accessories.
You will get several pictures of the digital sample. The options are almost limitless. Together we’ll make sure you have everything you need for a beautiful digital presentation.
I can plot the patterns for you. This can be done on plain pattern paper or on cardboard for longevity.
If your manufacturer uses a cutting plotter then you can also get digital cutting files instead.
A nested pattern sheet is also possible.

The given price is for a design with an average complexity, like a jeans or a standard blouse. On a less complex design you get a discount that can be up to 30%. On a more complex design I charge a surcharge, also up to 30%.
previous customers are saying…
Working with Danielle is really super easy (and a lot of fun). She is very knowledgeable and quickly understands what you want to achieve.
She does what she says and says what she does and especially that is incredibly important to me in a collaboration. We just finished the first product and I am super satisfied with the result. The end result is a good looking and very professional product. Worthy for the global market.
I am pleasantly surprised how beautiful and insightful 3D samples are! What a difference this makes in time and costs compared to making physical samples. Danielle is a pleasure to work with, she understands her profession and thinks along with you.
Danielle is so accurate in her work, she thinks out of the box and is so helpful throughout the whole process. I cannot wait to work with her again on a next project.
