Our patterns are developed exclusively for Susan Khalje Couture by master Paris-based draper and couture pattern maker Julien Cristofoli. Susan and Julien have been dear friends and close collaborators for nearly twenty years, having built their relationship through working and teaching together. Julien's true mastery and unparalleled skill become apparent from the moment you begin working with his patterns. The process of using them as the foundation of your garments becomes a journey, with every turn revealing new details you'll appreciate and relish. The patterns are graded by another expert, Judy Huyck, and manufactured entirely in the United States. This collection epitomizes the very best of revered couture traditions, and we are thrilled to offer them to you exclusively on our site.
(Please note: Our patterns do not include seam allowances; the lines you see are the seamlines themselves.)
