My name is Rose and I’m the designer and creator of the sewing patterns and sewing blog that is Honey & Rose, based in the Blue Mountains, Australia.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
When my Mum taught me how to sew around the age of 18, I mostly started out making skirts and loved being able to make something in a fabric that no one else would have.
I pursued a career as a graphic designer and later completed an online sewing and pattern drafting course to gain new skills and haven’t looked back since! I learnt how to combine my knowledge of graphic design, my new pattern drafting skills and passion for sewing for my own personal projects.
ABOUT HONEY & ROSE
Fast forward a few more years and I discovered the world of indie patterns and PDF patterns - my eyes were opened to a world that combined all of my passions. I couldn't wait to get started drafting my own patterns and create my own label.
I started researching sizing and drafting my basic pattern block in multiple sizes. I took it to a range of friends and family to try on my basic pattern block dress and found common issues and adjustments that they also had with ready-to-wear garments and I was excited to work on my sizing to reflect the real women in my life - and so Honey & Rose was born!
Every Honey & Rose sewing pattern is tested with an amazing group of sewists with different skill levels, international locations and covering a range of sizes from 8-24 (AUS/UK) / 4-20 (USA/CAN) / 36-52 (EUR).
