Sew Liberated began in a drafty adobe house on a street without a name in rural northern Mexico. The year was 2006, and Meg McElwee was working as a Montessori teacher in a one-room schoolhouse. With spotty connections to the outside world, Meg spent much of her time honing her sewing and pattern drafting skills. Eventually, she started a blog and began selling patterns based on her designs. Sew Liberated was one of the first indie pattern companies to emerge from the crafting renaissance and hopes to remain a friendly and fashion-forward presence in the sewing community.
Over the years, Sew Liberated has evolved to focus on slow fashion, sustainability, and mentoring women to look at their sewing as a practice of self-care. We believe that the act of making one’s own clothes can be transformative, personally and on a global scale when done through the lens of sustainable fashion. Our online course, The Mindful Wardrobe Project, helps women heal their relationship with clothing and style, and adopt a healthy slow fashion practice.
