Threadora mavens have silk in their veins, and tulle in their heart. You yearn to craft beautiful things but know the effort it takes to make a garment. You may doubt your skill and be weary to take on such a task because of the time and material cost.
Our patterns allow you to create breathtaking gowns in a simplified half-scale form. Each season is a new fantastical theme to inspire you. Their sole purpose is to allow you to practice the fundamental techniques (some modern, some couture) of dressmaking in an economical fashion.
Sewing is therapy, but developing a skill is not meant to be easy. That’s why completing something you make with your own hands is fully, intrinsically rewarding. It just takes practice and a little magic.
Pursue it and we guarantee you'll love what you craft. Find out more about the courses in our FAQ.
Meet the Designer
My name is Britney King and I'm the owner and designer of Threadora Gowns. I began designing custom bridal, bridesmaid dresses and evening wear in 2010 as Elise Tonn Designs, a dressmaking business named after my Grandmother. In 2012 I started a Youtube channel to document the making of my own wedding dress. Later on I covered sewing, vintage and fashion and it has been a great experience growing the platform and sharing my insightful instruction on dressmaking techniques.
I know these tribulations you are feeling all too well, because I been there too, time and time again. As a young designer, fresh out of design school, I found it incredibly difficult to establish myself as an expert.
I had to do everything the hard way and build my skill while designing directly for clients. This came with immense pressure. I made a lot of mistakes in the beginning, but the beauty with sewing is you can always unstitch and try again.
Threadora is my way to help you get past those initial trial-and-error mishaps, getting you practicing and honing your skill
So you can sew better and LOVE what you sew.
