Welcome to Pattern Making Academy (PMA)! Founded by Dr Kathleen (Kath) Berry, PMA is an Australian owned and operated training service aimed at providing sound knowledge and instruction on pattern engineering techniques for the production of female garments. Through many years of research, Kath has developed her own innovative pattern engineering system with focuses on body shape as opposed to garment size (you can read more about this in the 'Figure Types' section).
PMA is all about sharing knowledge of the essential elements of pattern engineering, using time honoured skills mapped onto an innovative pattern drafting system. It’s also about recognising the importance of educating and training people in the art and skills of pattern making to keep it alive!
