Hey, I'm Alys and I'm a pattern maker!
Originally from the UK, I grew up in Devon and then moved to London to work with brands such as steventai, Teija, Paper London and Alexander McQueen.
I also tutored Pattern Making and Sewing at The Fashion School for children and adults. At The Summer Fashion School I designed the Zero waste programme - 'Fashion Express.' The course was picked up by Sarah Mower MBE and The British Fashion Council to run sessions during London Fashion Week.
I love teaching and bouncing ideas around with others to turn a design into something real.
I moved to Sydney with my partner Ross to further explore creative pattern making and sustainability. (And for the after work dips in the sea!)
I opened UNPICKED studio to be a safe and comfortable space for you to learn and try something new. We offer workshops and 1:1 tuition for Pattern Making, Sewing, Upcycling and Repairs.
