Closet Case Patterns are chic, fashion forward and thoughtfully designed for the modern woman maker's wardrobe, the necessary luxuries you didn't realize your wardrobe was missing. Featuring meticulous drafting and clear, easy to understand instructions, our patterns are designed to empower you to sew with confidence and joy. We always provide additional help by way of tutorials, sewalongs and online classes to provide a little encouraging hand-holding to help you make the most beautiful garments ever.


I’m Heather Lou, a Montreal based sewing blogger, pattern designer & teacher. I rediscovered sewing a few years ago when I realized my relationship with shopping was financially, environmentally and ethically unsound. I was sick of being in debt, and sick of being enslaved to the fast fashion cycle. Learning to sew changed my life; few things in life give you as much pleasure as making things. 
I started releasing sewing patterns in 2013 with the Bombshell swimsuit, and left a career in commercial interior design to design sewing patterns full time in 2014. If you'd like to stay in touch, check out my blog Closet Case Files, where I write frequently about sewing, DIY and style.
