Founded in 2015 by Raphaëlle Bonamy, a fashion pattern maker, Readytosew is a ready-to-sew clothing brand specializing in sustainable sewing. Passionate about developing new and unexpected shapes, Raphaëlle has created iconic patterns such as Papao, Pablo, Julien, and Pekka.
Raphaëlle is more than just a clothing designer. In 2019, she dedicated several months to intensive training in plus-size pattern making, expanding her range up to size 58/60. Her commitment to ethical fashion also led her to share her expertise in plus-size pattern making, assisting other brands in developing their own lines. You can read her research here.
In 2022, Raphaëlle extended her skills to the world of children's fashion. Just like for adults, she focused on creating clothing that is as sturdy and timeless for children.
