    Founded in 2019, Dart Apparel is a company that focuses on apparel design and development. Dart’s goal is to help companies and individuals with their design and development needs. Dart Apparel can fill a need for apparel companies during times of transition and growth, allowing companies to have access to professional work done by an industry expert, without going through the trouble of hiring and relocating a new employee. Individuals seeking help also can have their dreams brought to life through Dart, and are encouraged to reach out. Specialties include computer pattern-making, conceptual design, technical design and development, sourcing, construction libraries, grade rules, drawing and other design services per request. What makes me stand out from others within the apparel industry is my strong background in small, medium, and large companies. Working in each gave me unique skills and experiences, and helped me learn the challenges of doing business on three different scales. This has given me the ability to; design, develop, manufacture, and sell almost any good, on any scale, while maintaining a clear vision and realistic path to success. ​ I have also founded a Maternity & Baby Apparel Company called RASKANA in 2021 (RASKANA.com) . As the founder and CEO of RASKANA, I inspire to design fashionable, ethical and quality maternity and children's apparel that is unique but practical for real moms. The designs are personally designed and developed by our brand founder and mother of three Jessie, who focuses equally on pattern-making and fit, in conjunction with design, to create products that are fashionable and practical for your journey in motherhood. ​ My unique set of skills also comes from my extensive background and experience in sewing & patterning. I started sewing when I was 7 years old, and soon began to teach classes in my mother’s sewing machine dealership. In this dealership, my mother and I worked alongside each other: learning, teaching, and traveling to Husqvarna Viking international sewing conventions together. In high school, I dual enrolled in art classes, and went on to study Fashion Design in College where I received my BFA in Fashion Design from The Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago. During high school and college, I never left the industry, working hard in upholstery and interior design to pay my way. Being a passionate expert in the apparel industry, I am confident in leading projects and delivering end-to-end apparel development with high expectations. Combining my degree in fashion design, growing up in a sewing machine dealership, and my work experiences, I am able to deliver quality services and products within the competitive apparel market. I love to champion new projects and challenges and thrive within creative and fast-paced environments. Hard work, combined with passion for finding efficiencies and best practices, has allowed me to effectively manage competing priorities on very short time-lines.

    Having always worked for small companies is a point of pride for me. Smaller companies have to work with what they have and when you have just as many departments as a large company, but half the staff, you as an employee get to pick up many skills inside and outside of your area of expertise. A few duties outside of design I have preformed for former employers you will not find listed on my resume are blogger, sales, customer service, delivery driver, accountant, and social media marketing. You will also not see on my resume that I am tenacious, kind, hardworking. The greatest skill I will bring to any company is not patternmaking, sewing, or anything apparel related. It is my self starting spirit. As an employer you will have to rain me in every once in a while, but I think it is much easier to pull someone back than to push them forward. It might take me a walk around the block to build up confidence, but I will give any task set before me everything I have. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to working together. Sincerely, Alexandra Loverink

    Hi! I'm an experienced lingerie designer and pattern maker, and I also work as a university lecturer for Lingerie & Corsetry. I'm passionate about lingerie because it can empower people and help them create their own identity. I've worked for several lingerie and bridalwear brands as well as for bespoke clients, and I currently run my own couture lingerie brand. That kind of work experience has given me a broad skill set in pattern drafting and fitting. I'm also aware of the challenges that small and mid-size companies experience, so I'll be able to help you through all steps of the process: from design and fabric research to product development, pattern making, grading, and the creation of professional tech packs that factories can understand. I'm really excited to work with you and create high-quality products that your customers will love!

    𝗧𝗢𝗣 𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗘𝗗 𝗣𝗟𝗨𝗦 | Your go-to 3D technical designer for lifestyle brands🌷 Develop your custom clothing line using a digital-first approach to solve fit problems before they get to your customers. Hi, my name is Ellie and I'm here to help you succeed in developing your next successful apparel product. I'm an apparel pattern maker and technical design expert. I love helping small brands get their styles developed and produced. Using powerful industry-standard CAD software and solutions to build comprehensive prototypes and tech packs. 𝗩𝗜𝗦𝗜𝗢𝗡 | Many of the brands I've worked with share something very special in common, and that is that they have a unique, deep vision of how their products shape and affect their customer's lives. The products we build together are carefully thought out, and tested to ensure they enhance the lives of those they touch. We work together to contribute beautifully constructed items that are well-made, and well-loved, so we can produce goods of the highest quality which minimizes waste. 𝗛𝗢𝗪 𝗜𝗧 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞𝗦 | First and foremost I am a pattern maker. I provide 3D Prototypes for styles in development which allows you to see your design as it comes to life from every angle and validate not just the look of the style, but also the fit. This allows us to ensure the product is exactly the way you envisioned it beforehand and finally take the guesswork out of product specifications. You don't have to be a designer or go to a fashion school to run a clothing brand. Many of the clients I work with are entrepreneurs, not artists, and we collaborate together to design together by refining their ideas and getting those products to market. 𝗖𝗔𝗣𝗔𝗕𝗜𝗟𝗜𝗧𝗜𝗘𝗦 ▪ 12+ years in design and development ▪ Professional pattern maker with industry experience ▪ BFA in Fashion Design and Merchandising (Achieved 2011) ▪ Deep knowledge of Adobe Illustrator & Clo3D and various other cad software ▪ Profound knowledge of Tech Packs and Prototyping for cut-and-sew goods ▪ Additionally I provide teaching on the subject of pattern making in Clo3D 𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪𝗦 "Absolutely AMAZING! We needed some fitness accessories designed and she did great! She was so responsive, had great ideas, and was just a wonderful pleasure to work with!" "Elyannie is a highly skilled and very professional pattern maker. She was able to take my simple sketches and written descriptions and create a fabulous pattern that ticked all of our boxes." "Elyannie was professional, efficient, understood the requirements well, and delivered excellent work. Will definitely work with her again if we get the chance!" 𝗡𝗘𝗫𝗧 𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗣𝗦 | Inviting me to your job post allows for us to connect and do a 15 minute discovery call, no commitment required. If it's not a good fit, I'd be happy to refer you to someone in my network! Your go-to 3D technical designer is just a click away! 👩🏻‍💻 Best regards, Ellie

    If you need help with the fleshing out your idea and all of the technical parts of your design project, I can help! I bring ideas to life by using a combination of 3D visualizations and physical prototypes to develop concepts. I create the technical sketches, tech packs, spec sheets, BOMs, and digitized patterns that are needed to get from concept to factory prototype and final production. I can also create 3D visualizations that can be used for marketing and e-commerce. Throughout my career as a freelance designer, I've recognized that most clients typically approach me already having a good idea about the design or product that they’re trying to bring to life. While providing creative direction and feedback is important, I’ve found that the most important thing that the client needs is a designer with a strong technical foundation to serve as the product engineer in bringing their ideas to life. I specialize in designing and developing niche products with user centered details. Are you working on a complex or unusual project? I can help with refining and fleshing out all of the aesthetic and technical details of your idea. If you have an innovative product that needs some work, please reach out to me. I'm also a sweater nerd who obsessively knits and crochets. I have a strong knowledge of sweater construction, finishes, stitches, and yarns, experience working with sweater and knitwear factories, 3D (whole garment) knitting machines and hand-knitting production. If you have a sweater or knitwear project in mind, please reach out to me! Experience and Skilled in Tech Packs, Patterns and 3D renderings for: Sweaters Hooded Sweatshirts (Hoodies) and T-shirts Casual Dresses Lounge sets and Casual wear Accessories (Woven and Leather handbags and eyewear) Furniture Stationery and Desktop Accessories Hard-goods (Glass, metal, plastic and wooden products)
