Aspiring Designer: Madeit

Hi my name is Anna and I am the designer at Madeit

I am so excited to be part of this challenge, I have had a love of making clothes from a very young age watching my mum tracing out and making from her Burda pattern books then I would mimic this and make clothes for my Cindy doll.

I gained a degree in Fashion with Technology at Manchester Metropolitan University here in the UK and went on to work as a creative pattern cutter for many suppliers and top end Brands.

When I had my little boy in 2011 it sparked a love of making children's clothes and Madeit patterns was born in 2013.

Madeit are pleased to announce that in September this year we will launch a Fall/Winter collection along with a brand new website and blog.

Here is a taster from the new range, The Ziggy is a oversize top which is great for both girls and boys. This boxy shape is on trend for the coming season and can be made from any sort of Jersey, sweatshirt, or true knit fabric construction.

Get printing and appliqué to funk it up a bit! the tutorial includes the instructions for simple printing techniques to achieve the looks in the photos, or create your own designs. The top will also look great in a printed jersey, maybe put on a contrast neck band, the variations are endless, get creative! 

Lauren wears a top made from cotton/elastase single jersey with printed continuous chevron stripes going over the sleeves and body.


Cole wears a true knit with printed jersey appliqué stars and stripe sleeve detail.

The pattern is to make sizes 2T to 10Y, the simple style means its great for beginners and advanced sewers alike. The tutorial also includes 2 different neck finishing techniques and tells you when to use each one depending on your fabric choice.

We are offering this pattern for £1.50 ($2.50) up until midnight GMT on the 23rd August so hurry over to our Madeit Etsy shop to get your copy.
