Maven Patterns is an independent sewing pattern company founded by Sharon Mendham (AKA Mrs M) in 2015.
After a lifetime working as a professional ladies wear pattern cutter, creating clothes for many a high street store, Mrs M became slightly disillusioned with the high turn over of said fashions and the endless need to buy new. What was being lost, she felt, was the art of fitting and construction, and of clothes that made your heart sing, not just for a second, but every time you saw them. So she rebelled, quietly because she’s like that, but rebelled none the less and quit the rat race, deciding instead to make clothes that she loved to wear, that reflected her life rather than those generic fashions of the day. So she has dedicated herself to working at Granny’s table, to cracking open the spot and cross and sharing her industry knowledge with other Makers in the form of Maven Patterns.
Our printed patterns are multi-sized in either UK sizes 8 – 18 ( a UK size 20 for our Good Times skirt) or UK sizes S – XL and printed on 60gsm paper. They each contain a fully illustrated Maker Instruction booklet (we also have supporting tutorials on our website) and they are presented in our beautiful wallet style box, which has proven to be very popular with our customers.
