A shirt made for Westy in Mammoth Flannel Burgundy

I had to follow our last blog of 'making for guys' with this fabulous make by one of our customers Suzy who is based in Spain. Suzy wanted to make something for her husband to wear on the cooler Spanish days and kindly shared these photographs with us. This is the Fairfield Button Up by Thread Theory made in our Burgundy Mammoth Flannel. The details are so good and I am envious of Suzy's professional finish. I love this make that shows off our fabric perfectly, not to mention that perfect Spanish view! Beautifully modelled, Westy, thank you : )

Make it in Ventana Twill - Dreaming of jackets and trousers

I want to share some ideas I have on what to make in our Ventana twill fabric. This post covers just jackets and trouser sewing patterns that have been inspiring me recently. If you follow my Instagram account it's possible you've already heard me talking about some of these makes. I'm always impressed at the amount of independent pattern makers out there, these are a few of my favourite. My exploration for sewing patterns is almost as strong as it is for fabric, I use mainly PDF downloadable files but they all usually available on paper too.   Lander Pant by True Bias These are currently queuing in my make...

Wiksten Shift Top Made in Robert Kaufman Mammoth Plaid Gold

Starting 2020 right with a make! After seeing lots of customers make beautiful clothing in this Mammoth gold plaid I couldn't resist some for myself. This top is from the Wiksten Shift Set and I love it (seen sooooo... many photos of this all over instagram) I've already made another.

Only modifications were adding an inch to the length on this one but more to fit with where the plaid pattern sits on the...
