About Australia's Leading Pattern Maker

Sample Room was established in 2009 and is currently Australia’s only full service ethically accredited pattern maker, sample maker, grading, specification and manufacturing business.

Julia realised through her years in the fashion industry that the relationship and communication between a pattern maker and sample maker is critical for quick, accurate development. Having these skilled people in the same room enables quick problem solving and communication from the designer through to the final sample.

Based in Collingwood, Melbourne we have worked with 1000’s of labels all over Australia and further afield, including New Zealand, USA, South Africa, Dubai and Finland. Do not worry if you are interstate as we are also able to work remotely through video fittings and we have advanced technology and systems in place for accurate communication as well as decades of industry understanding to help you to complete your range.

We offer the full development service of computer pattern makers, sample makers, grading and specification services for Women’s, Men’s and Children’s wear as well as non-wearable textile products.

The range of products we work with is extensive and includes lingerie, swimwear, activewear, through to formal wear. There is little we can’t do.

You can select the full service or elements as you need based on your individual development requirements.

Pattern & Sample Library

Our extensive sample and pattern library is available to help with development communication, but we have also just extended our technical capability with our new NHega scanner. This allows us to digitise your current patterns or samples into our pattern making system with incredible accuracy.

With the breadth of capabilities available in one business we can ensure accurate and easy development of patterns and grading across Babies (Newborn), Toddler, Kids, Mens, Womens and plus sizes to size 8XL and above.

Computer pattern makers

As computer pattern makers, we offer many advantages for local and overseas manufacturing including time and cost saving measures throughout the development process. It is very easy to use and alter your patterns next season for further cost savings as well as export to DXF, Ai and PDF electronic patterns for quick communication with your manufacturer, no matter where they are.

We are also very well known for our support of start up designers through our Fashion Label Launchpad program. If you are starting out please click over to our Start up Launching Point page to find out more.
