Named Sewing Patterns

Have you heard of Named Sewing Patterns?  I hadn't either until they popped up in last month's PatternReview.com newsletter.

From the website:
Named is a Finnish clothing pattern label founded by sisters Saara and Laura Huhta. The story of Named started from the dream of turning a passion into a career, designing an own collection of clothing patterns felt like a natural way to implement both sisters’ love for clothes, fashion, design and DIY. The duo wants to encourage fellow fashion lovers to give sewing their own garments a try.


Named garments are a combination of Scandinavian clean-lined simplicity and interesting details. The aim of the collections is to bring a new perspective to making one’s own clothes and to support ethical and ecological consuming in contrast to a clothing industry focused on fast fashion. Self-made clothing also allows for freedom of choice; by choosing one’s colors and materials and by changing garment details, the customer can be part of the design process. If dressing is a way to express oneself then self-made clothes are self-expression at its best.

They  have two seasons of patterns out so far and both are shared in beautiful Anthropologie style Lookbooks.

They offer their patterns in both printed format and as a .pdf file.

I like how basic but modern these styles are~

On top of all that, they have a lovely blog as well, with some really interesting articles.

What do you think?  Will you give these Scandinavian patterns a try?  Leave a comment below~
