About us

Nina Lee is an independent pattern label celebrating the mighty power of making! We’re based in London and create sewing patterns inspired by the incredible heritage and diversity of this brilliant place. Our patterns are named after parts of the city, and we’re very proud to introduce to you our first mini collection: Portobello, Bloomsbury and Carnaby.

We aim to be part of the movement away from disposable, ‘fast’ fashion, towards a more sustainable and rewarding form of dressing – but one that never forgets to be fun. Our designs are intended to fit into your me-made wardrobe year-round, and to work as canvases for your own creativity.

All of our patterns come in UK sizes 6–20, with in-depth, fully illustrated instructions to guide you through. They are drafted for an average height of 5’5″ and a B cup.

Nina Lee Patterns is the creation of me, Nina Chang. You can follow my personal sewing adventures here.
