ZERO WASTE GARMENTS AND SEWING PATTERNS

All Birgitta Helmersson garments are made using zero waste pattern cutting. This means that no fabric is wasted in the cutting and sewing process. We design and make all of our garments from our studio/store based in Malmö Sweden. We use europeans linens, organic cottons, naturally dyed textiles and re-purposed cloth.

zero waste pdf sewing patterns

Many of our zero waste garment designs are available as PDF sewing patterns giving you the option to make them yourself. Our patterns are unique in that they require minimal printing and are drawn directly on to your fabric with the help of small templates and step by step instructions. All patterns utilise zero waste pattern cutting and are developed to accommodate differing fabric widths.
