About me

Hi there friend!

Welcome to Paradise Patterns, I hope you will find a sewing pattern that makes you really excited to sew a beautiful garment! My designs are chic and comfortable with some island style thrown in. I hope you like them as much as I do! 

I was born and raised in Sweden, and studied Fashion Design and Pattern Making there. In my twenties I came to Hawai'i, fell in love with a local surfer, and now we are raising our two boys on the island of O'ahu. I feel incredibly blessed to call this amazing place home!

I started my pattern making/technical design career in 2016 in Honolulu, working for small, local brands. After a few years I fell pregnant with my first son, and decided I wanted to freelance when I became a mother. My job now is so fun and multi-faceted. I still work with a lot of local brands, and I even get to pattern and grade for a lot of people that I met through Instagram, in addition to running my own little pattern design studio, Paradise Patterns. I love having one foot in the clothing manufacturing business as well as the home sewing community!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and please feel free to email me with any questions!

xx, Sanna
