Welcome to The Dutch pattern farm!
My name is Tineke de Jong, I am a Dutch 21-year-old, seamstress, and pattern designer.
In 2014 I started with a study to become a seamstress in The Hague (Holland), where I graduated in 2017 at the top of my class.
In June 2019, I graduated as a pattern designer at Via University College (Denmark). Here I studied and lived for two years to specialize in the designing and drafting of patterns.
The idea of starting to make patterns for young children came from me becoming an aunt several times.
The inspiration for the pattern designs comes from the family farm where I grew up and a vintage style that I adore.
I am looking towards the future with excitement, there are still so many things on my to-do list, many new plans, more patterns, improvements. TDPF is truly a dream come true for me, my designs made into so many cute clothing pieces.
I am very grateful for the support I have had so far, from both customers, friends, and family, who motivate me with their kind words and their help. Thank you all!
And know, that I always love to hear from you, whether that are questions, comments, or sewing results!
Contact me any time by e-mail, Facebook, or Instagram and I will get back to you as soon as possible. #thedutchpatternfarm
