Patricia Jackson

Designer, dressmaker, seamstress, knitter and crocheter who creates fashions for your comfort and wearing pleasure since 1984.

Welcome!

I offer you the superb workmanship of an Haute Couture designer.  Couture means dressmaking, sewing and needlework.  Haute means high.  Therefore, Haute Couture / High Fashion is what I produce.  The purchase of an haute couture custom garment is made specifically for your measurements.  These made to measure exclusive clothes are virtually made by hand, carefully lined and fitted for each client.

It is sometimes hard for a client to understand why the price is higher than off the rack prices.  My service to you is superior workmanship, unique original design and the use of fine quality materials.  You, the client, will get a fit only achieved by painstaking methods of measuring, cutting and fitting your body.  The manual labor needed to produce a garment this way takes many hours.  The finished product is what a "LADY OF DISTINCTION" wears.

Please note that as much as Pat's Fashion Plates tries to match garment colors to digital photograph colors there are some minor color inconsistencies.
