About Alys

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. 

I believe there are already enough clothes and fabrics in the world, so we focus on using reclaimed fabrics and sustainable techniques in our workshops.
