Episode 34: Sewing and Pattern Making for larger bodieswith Leila Kelleher

July 7, 2021

Leila Kelleher (she/her)
Leila is the patternmaker and one half of Muna and Broad, an independent sewing pattern company that centres and empowers large bodies. Her patterns focus on fit and are designed to delight the maker with interesting construction details and techniques. Leila studied fashion production and worked in the custom clothing industry and wardrobe for film and theatre before changing careers. She holds a PhD in Biomechanics (the science of human movement) and is a professor of Biomechanics. 

Leila and I talk about how to scale patterns properly, why this is important and reason why she started sewing her own clothes.
