A few weeks ago I found a family picture taken on my eighth birthday. I’m wearing a poppy shirt with a Claudine collar under a chasuble dress. Surrounded by my grandparents, I hold in my harms one of the most beautiful present I ever received: my very first sewing machine! Happy about getting the gift I longed for, a huge smile ornates my face. In the months that followed, I was going to discover the fabulous sewing world. I am then far to gauge how much room this passion will take in my life. I am eight years old, I’m learning multiplications, I have the ambition to sew a lot of scrunches and there is a piece of birthday-cake left.
Upon completion of my studentship I moved to Paris in order to join a famous luxury house’s product development team. This is where I’ve I sharpened my taste, cultivated my perfectionism and got a taste of very neat finishings. Captivating as my job was though, I could feel something was amiss. I wanted to renew with my first passion and signed up for an evening pattern making class. I quickly developed a crush for this discipline! I learned the backstage of a perfect cut and started designing my own sewing patterns. Muslins and new designs followed one another; I felt home.
A few years went by and my desire to share my passion with you arose: I decided to create my YouTube channel. In my videos, I present my universe, my inspirations, my creations. The cheerful audience and growing community has allowed me to dream of a new career path. My yearning for creativity becomes evident and my corporate work has to give room to it.
Thus, twenty years after receiving my very first sewing machine, I take the decision to create my sewing patterns’ brand. It’s the beginning of the Méthode Mathilde adventure!
