About Victory Patterns
Victory Patterns is a Canadian sewing pattern company based in Toronto. We create fashion forward digital and paper patterns for women who love to sew for themselves. Our patterns strike a balance between vintage and modern fashion aesthetics. Our mission is to get women excited about sewing, create momentum for slow fashion and encourage a more creative and inspired life.
In 2011, Victory Patterns launched their first line of PDF patterns and in 2013, released their full line of printed patterns. The founder, Kristiann Boos, published her first modular sewing pattern book Boundless Style, (Fons & Porter), in 2015. We are currently releasing new patterns on a quarterly basis and are working towards developing educational products for our customers.
We sell our patterns both B2C (Business to Consumer) through our e-commerce website and B2B (Business to Business) through retailers across North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
