Meet the Designer

Catherine Ferris is the owner and designer at Drake & Ferris, Inc. She is a graduate of both SUNY College at Oneonta and the Fashion Institute of Technology with degrees in fashion design and merchandising and human ecology. 
Catherine established a solid career with Simplicity Pattern Company in NYC as a technical writer. In 2005, Catherine left her full time position at Simplicity and relocated with her husband and daughter to Jordan, NY.

After her departure, Catherine began designing patterns for the craft department at Simplicity. Designs included adult and children's costumes, doll clothes, dog costumes and home decor.

The Birth of a Brand


In 2009, the Drake & Ferris brand was established from combining Catherine's two family names...Drake & Ferris. The logo was designed and printed on Simplicity patterns that were published and distributed worldwide under the
Drake & Ferris license.

The Disney Effect


In 2010, Catherine began designing sewing patterns for Simplicity Pattern under the Walt Disney License. These patterns required a high level of detail to meet the Disney standards of design, fabrication and color for approval. Due to the success of these patterns, Catherine continued to design for the Disney license and Drake & Ferris license until 2018.
