We’re Pier&Palace, 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 we support you every step of the way. We aim to produce quality patterns that give great value to every person who invests their money and time. We try to guide sewers to develop and push skills, to help them gain confidence in their makes and their style.
Pier&Palace was launched in October 2017 in Brighton, UK - but moved 6 days later to Los Angeles, USA. And our name isn’t the only thing derived from this culture clash, our style is a blend of quirky Brighton and cool, confident LA.
About Karen - The Designer/Founder
Pier&Palace is the fruit of a long dream of mine - to work creatively within fashion both ethically and in a way which makes high end fashion accessible to everyone who's willing.
I’m Karen and I’m a trained womenswear designer, who has always loved pattern cutting. Since university (in Amsterdam and London) I’ve been working predominately in the Bridal industry. However a growing interest in fashion ethics, the amazing growth in home sewing with young people and a desire for a lifestyle change has lead me to birthing Pier&Palace!
