Pier and Palace is a modern independent PDF pattern company, with our feet in fashion but our head in technique. Our patterns are a level up for a lot of sewers, but are fully supported to ensure success. We produce quality patterns that reward every person who invests their money and time, whilst guiding sewers to develop their confidence and skills.
Pier and Palace began in October 2017 in Brighton, UK - but quickly moved to Los Angeles, USA. Our name isn’t the only thing derived from this culture clash; our style is a blend of quirky Brighton and cool LA.
About Karen - The Designer/Founder

Karen is a professionally trained womenswear designer, who has always loved pattern cutting. Since attending the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and the London College of Fashion, she has worked predominately in the Bridal industry; however a growing interest in fashion ethics, the explosion in home sewing with millennials and a desire for a lifestyle change has led her a begin Pier and Palace.
