 I also attended a pop-up event that Spoonflower held at East Fork in Asheville and had a great time chatting with all the Spoonflower reps.  Note that Spoonflower has announced the closing of their Raleigh Durham factory; moving production to AZ & SC. They’ve since turned off comments on this post for the weekend since they want to be able to monitor & address. 

Introduction & what you’ve been up to:

New patterns

Hadley by Grainline Studios max 61”

The Hadley is drapey, fluid, and sophisticated. It’s the semi-formal top that you need to wear to work or to throw on over your jeans for a night out. View A has a jewel neck, a pleat at the back neckline, and bracelet lengths sleeves. View B is sleeveless and features a soft v-neck. Both are subtly geometric as they have center seams in the front and back as well as a wide hem.

Techniques involved include sewing straight and curved seams, setting sleeves, darts, pleating, and applying facings.

Schultzapparel Estella dress max 61” hip

The Estella pattern is a tight fitted dress with a full skirt.

Both options has an invisible zipper at Center Back seam, and are fully lined at the bodice.
