Patternmaker wanted
« on: January 08, 2020, 01:43:19 AM »
I make bespoke hunt coats here in the US.  Recently we lost the woman who drafted our patterns and I am looking for someone willing to do them. Nothing extensive and only need outer shell. I can draft linings, facings etc.. Just a classic frock coat and riding jacket styles for men and women.  I will only need them on a very intermittent basis.  Maybe a 1/2 dozen or so per year.. I am a one man shop and can't afford a high dollar service.. 
Thanks for any leads.

Doughboy, you might try contacting Kathleen Fassanella in Albuquerque.  She's a former patternmaker with her own CMT shop in Albuquerque.  She may be able to give you some referrals.  Kathleen worked for a western wear company in the 80s and 90s and did coats.  She has a forum called Fashion Incubator.  Her company is Apparel Technical Services.

Doughboy,
There is more information needed. The pattern maker needs to know which system you use and if he/she can have access to your old pattern.

Your link doesnt work.
Are you looking for paper patterns or digital versions?
