Featured Designer Cecilia Jorcin of Lily Bird Studio

Our Featured Designer for June is Cecilia Jorcin from Lily Bird Studio. Cecilia has been selling PDF patterns since 2010, but her design career really started when she was still a teenager.  Back then Cecilia didn't sew, but her mother did, and so she designed clothing patterns for her mother to make for her.  Although she thought about a career in fashion design, Cecilia opted to study computer programming and quit designing for about 10 years. It wasn't until Cecilia had her own daughter in 2008 and she quit her job as a computer programmer that she actually started sewing and designing again.

 

Cecilia looks for inspiration everywhere, but she is especially inspired by vintage fashion. She loves the movie "The Notebook" and filled her sketchbook after watching it.

Kate's Dress is her best selling pattern. It's a classic and stylish A Line dress with two different yoke options and flutter sleeves.

Cecilia's personal favorite pattern from her collection is her Juliette's Dress. The vintage style, clean lines, and fun open back design make for a dress that looks good on any little girl.

Lily Bird Studio's newest release is the Amy Peplum Top.

Fitted and fashionable, Amy's is sophisticated, yet still girly.

Cecilia's sketchbook is overflowing with new designs, and like many other stay at home mom pattern makers, there just isn't enough time in the day to get them all down into actual patterns...yet.  She has plans for new jackets, skirt and dresses, as well as expanding her boys line and making some women's patterns too!
