A pattern cutter, or pattern maker, creates patterns based on designs from a fashion designer. They create the pattern on paper or card, which serves as a repeatable template that is used by the machinist to mass produce the final fabric. They thus play a crucial role in satisfactorily bringing the designer’s imaginings, ideas and drawings to life. Discover what it’s like to be a pattern cutter below!
