The Chicago Pattern Maker - Xochil Herrera Scheer Logo


Thanks for visiting and getting to know me and my team! I am a pattern maker and product developer based in the Chicago area, with over 15 years experience in the fashion industry. I am very passionate about the product development process, and I enjoy working closely with my clients and brands on their patterns, prototypes, and everything pre-production! It’s where my skills shine, and I love collaborating with designers to create beautiful and functional products. I consider myself to be an “analytic creative”, a resourceful problem solver, an engineer of apparel and sewn products. I am very passionate about ethical manufacturing, especially within the US. We have so many wonderful resources around us. I look forward to working with you!
