My name is Dhurata and I am a dressmaking pattern designer and private sewing tutor. I live in West Sussex, UK, with my husband and two gorgeous sons. I was born in Kosovo where I grew up inspired by great men and women who knew how to make pretty much anything with their bare hands. That is not to say I’m not still growing up and learning every single day!
I have always been a creative person in one way or another. Ever since a child I loved drawing, designing and making various things. I studied graphic design at university, tried my hand at interior design, clothing design, dressmaking, knitting, crochet, upholstery… and everything in between. The thing I love the most though is clothing design and dressmaking. I’ve always made clothes for myself and others and there’s no greater pleasure for my creative part of the brain than laying a piece of fabric on my cutting table and moments later (or, in extreme cases, hours later!!!) ending up with a wearable, usable and unique item of clothing! So, as you can imagine, I spend a lot of my time doing just that and perfecting my technique.
I now design my own brand of dressmaking patterns for adults, babies and children.
