About Grainline Studio

Welcome to Grainline Studio! We are a pattern shop featuring modern, fashion-forward patterns that will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe. All of the patterns are drafted with a contemporary fit and we take extra care to provide clearly illustrated instructions that are easy to follow to ensure a professional finish. All of our patterns are drafted, graded, and digitized by hand in our Chicago studio.

How We Started

Grainline Studio originally began as the personal blog of Jennifer Beeman, the designer and patternmaker behind the patterns. It expanded in mid 2011 to include these downloads after receiving numerous requests for the patterns of the garments she was creating for herself. Jennifer studied fashion design at Columbia College where she focused on patternmaking and technical design. She now works as a patternmaker for local designers as well as designing and producing a line of women's clothing under the name Hound.
