Hi! My name is Maddie Flanigan and I am a 29-year-old lingerie designer, sewing teacher, freelance photographer and personal stylist who turned her dream of sewing and blogging into a passionate career. On most days, you'll find me in my studio, located in Philadelphia, designing my next collection or teaching women how to make a perfectly-fitted bra. When I'm not working at Madalynne Studios, I'm a part time personal stylist for Anthropologie and photographer. Sound like I wear a lot of hats? Literally and figuratively, I do, but like mother to child, I love each equally. They're an all-consuming, at all-hours commitment that leave my heart full when I go to bed.
This is who I am, but this is what Madalynne is…
Madalynne is an educational, informational and inspirational blog, sewing studio and lingerie brand. Madalynne provides in-person and online lessons and tutorials on pattern making and sewing in simple words and with visually pleasing images that are fun to look at and easy to remember. Madalynne is also a budding ready to wear line; Madalynne Intimates being a contemporary, modern take on my aesthetic that mixes sporty, feminine, comfort and function.
