Amy is a custom clothier and tailor with over 30 years experience in garment construction. Over the years she has developed hundreds of patterns for her personal clients and her garments have sold all over the United States and internationally, with a brand recognized for its quality – AC Ashworth & Company.

With years of custom sewing and tailoring experience, we have refined the art and science of patternmaking; and combined with industry-specific knowledge in creating patterns and technial specifications for production, we have the tools in place to bring your design idea to life. We provide CAD pattern drafting, grading, and sample making for designer clients who want to bring their proprietary designs to market. Our team of talented professionals includes a fashion and technical artist and a quality assurance analyst. With our specialized blend of experience and skill, we are able to provide a unique personalized experience for each designer, from concept to manufacturing floor.

Not quite ready for a full-blown  production run?  We can provide your product in small batches! This option will help you test the market, make improvements, and build your client base, without the large investment of a large production run.  Our in-house capacity is generally 50 pcs or less, and we offer pricing on a sliding scale based on the size of your order.   

Let's walk through the steps together.
