  • Hi, I’m Dee. I first fell in love with sewing at age 8, while making dolls clothes using my mother’s industrial sewing machines. My 30-year career in the clothing industry started on the ground floor, working my way up to designer. I made for New Zealand clothing brands before becoming a sewing and pattern making tutor. I then met my partner Wayne who was also in the clothing industry, wholesaling garments to retailers. We merged our skills to start a business designing and manufacturing our own New Zealand made label.

  • TLC clothing patterns was first conceived after years working in the clothing industry. With a digital library of many timeless designs. I set about merging my two love’s, pattern making and teaching. Enabling others to create their own fashion with proven designs and helpful instructions.

  • My hope is to inspire you to create your own fashion wardrobe. Learning new skills that will lead you to try more sophisticated designs. Practice your creativity and be proud of the achievement when wearing your personally made garments.


Happy sewing everyone.
