The UK’s Biggest Pattern House

Designer spotlight: Madalynne

As you may have spotted, one of our fabulous independent designers Madalynne has taken over our Instagram feed all this week! What better excuse to focus our blog this week on her and her beautiful makes?

Hailing from Philadelphia, Madalynne wasn’t always a creative type, preferring science at school. Later inspired by her mother, who sadly passed away when Madalynne was in her final year of high school, Madalynne’s interest in sewing was sparked when she found her mother’s old sewing machine.

Fast forward around five years, and Madalynne now has a range of lingerie with Urban Outfitters, as well as a pattern range right here at Simplicity!

Our Madalynne highlights

Madalynne’s aim is to produce lingerie which is as beautiful as it is functional – and we think she’s nailed it with her Simplicity patterns! Stitchers may be apprehensive about creating their own lingerie, but it couldn’t be easier with her range. Here is a selection of our favourites…

Simplicity 8624

The latest addition as part of our Simplicity spring collection, and one Madalynne has been shouting about this week on our Instagram! A beautiful set with high neck – best used with fabric that has stretch.
