Sewaholic Patterns is the first company to offer pretty, versatile sewing patterns for pear-shaped women! Our patterns are easy to use and designed to fit and flatter a pear-shaped figure.
Based in Vancouver BC, Sewaholic Patterns was founded in 2010 by Tasia St. Germaine. The idea to create patterns specifically for pear-shaped women came from her frustration in having to alter commercial patterns to fit her curvy lower body. She knew she couldn't be the only one out there feeling the same way. Why not create simple, flattering patterns proportioned for our body type instead?
