This is What Made in the USA Looks Like

This is What Made in the USA Looks Like

Jobs…
National pride…

Let’s be honest. We live in a global economy where overseas manufacturing is a part of our reality. We sigh with nostalgia remembering the days of bustling American manufacturing districts where many of our garments and other goods were made. Pessimistic? I am not. There are good reasons and outcomes for international production. Lower labor costs have allowed for giant savings for both vendors and consumers. However, I believe there is a shift happening back to the US. I don’t believe it will be a rapid change and I don’t think that all production will come back. Why? Because our consumer conscience is changing. We want to buy from people, not from companies.  We care about the who, what, where and how of the items we purchase.

For me, patriotic making and spending is most important because supports the passions of our people, the people like me. As a bonafide maker, made in the USA is the next best thing to handmade, something that I live and breath. At the age of 18, when I discovered sewing, me-made garments gave me control over what I wore. No longer did I have to succumb to the what mass manufacturers designed. By buying USA products, you and I are taking back control. We’re deciding the future of our country and making it better – adding jobs, putting money back into our economy and most importantly, supporting our people… supporting me.

In the spirit of knowing the who, what, where and why, I’m giving you a glimpse into the making of Madalynne Intimates, the Brooklyn factory and 2,000+ square foot sewing space where each and every item is made.

    I love your me-made bra and panty patterns. My un-mentionables drawer is getting a much needed updating. Your designs are very sexy and comfortable. I am starting to add my own personal flair to the pieces that I make. Thank you so much for being a great designer and providing these wonderful patterns.

    I’d love to see an interview with some of the people making your undies if you’ve time! What a great project.
